How to Hair Sample
How to Hair Sample
It is the best option using a sample from your own hair. Why? Because nothing comes close to natural. Your natural hair will allow us to match your true color graduation from the source!
For best results, we recommend taking each sample in 100-200 strands of hairs and be about 2-3″ in length. The more hair you can provide, the easier it will be for us to analyze the color.
NOTE: Do not cover your hair samples with tape. Even clear tape will alter true light reflection and throw off color accuracy. Also, random clippings won’t work! Light reflects differently on tiny clippings so the color can appear different.
If your hair is the same color all over, please just provide one sample. However, if your hair is a different color in different areas (e.g. you have more grey in the sides), for best results, please take samples from 3-6 areas:
Back: As close to the center of the back of your head as possible
Sides: Approximately 1-2″ above the top of your ear
Temples: At the front most part of your hair on the sides
Crown: The back, top of your head (if possible)
Top: The front, top of your head (if possible)
Front: At the hairline or bang area (if possible)
NOTE: Please cut a sample from each area and label each one, informing us what part of the head it came from (e.g. front, top, sides, crown, temple or back etc.) Please make sure the hair is clean. This is important because dirty hair will not show its true color.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND SENDING IN YOUR HAIR SAMPLE BESCAUSE THE PHOTOS ARE NOT ABLE TO REFLECT THE REAL COLOR OF YOUR HAIR, BESIDES; OUR COMPUTER MONITORS MAY ALSO NOT DISPLAY THE COLOR IN ITS ORIGINAL ACTUAL TONE. THERE IS ALWAYS A COLOR DIFFERENCE.
