Radiant Red Hair Extensions Shades
This one is for all the redheads (and aspiring redheads!) who love being bold and vibrant with red hair extensions. Adding extra length and volume with hair extensions will enhance your ravishing red locks. There are a few different red hair extension shades you’ll want to consider based on your current color or the one you want to achieve. Bring on the bold red hues!
Red Hair Extension Options
At Wicked Roots Hair™, we offer five different red hair extension shades. Whether you choose our red clip in hair extensions, tape in, or band style, all three types will carry these colors. Which red hair hue suits you best?
If you’re looking for a classic red hair extension color, this shade will be your new favorite! The tone of these red hair extensions leans more toward a light ginger color with notes of copper red hues.
For a more subtle look, strawberry is sweet and soft. This red hybrid color has a peachy undertone. It’s the lightest natural shade of red you can choose from on the hair color spectrum.
This reddish-brown color is on the opposite spectrum of the strawberry color. Think deep brown hues with a red undertone for dark red hair extensions.
This color is a darker version of the auburn for more reddish-brown tones. Its richer brown color is dark with a subtle red hue. If you’re looking for dark red hair extensions, this shade is the darkest red available.
Achieve a red without the orange or brown undertones with this burgundy shade. The look is deep and sultry with a gorgeously bold vibe.
Color Matching Red Extensions Hair
Now that you have a better understanding of all the shades for red hair extensions, it’s time to find the best match for you! If you want to color-match your current red hair, it’s important to note that your hair will have various tones and hues. You’ll want to compare a few shades to see what matches most closely.
To get that perfect match, you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Take our color match quiz to find out the closest matches for your natural hair.
- Order your three closest swatch samples (if you sign up for our emails, you’ll get a code for three free swatches!)
- When you receive your hair samples, find a spot that gives you the most natural light.
- Clip up the top layer of your hair so you can hold the swatch near the hair behind your ears.
- Compare the color from your midshaft to your ends and brush the sample into your natural hair to compare the shades.
After deciding on a swatch that best matches your red strands, you can order your hair extensions for a seamless blend.
Haircare Tips for Extensions Red Hair
Whether you’re new to red hair or a natural redhead, it’s essential to have a proper haircare routine in place. This way, you can make your red hair extensions last as long as possible while still keeping their vibrant shine and color. Our hair extensions are made with 100% Remy human hair, so you can wash and style them like your natural hair!
Add these tips to your routine for shiny and healthy red extensions hair:
- Wear a hat when spending a day outside to protect your red tresses from harmful UV rays. Prolonged exposure to the sun can fade and dry out your red hair extensions.
- Use a brush that is gentle on hair extensions to keep your extensions tangle and matt free. Other brushes can be damaging to your delicate red extension hair.
- Keep your red hair extensions hydrated by using a leave-in conditioner or hair mask for added moisture. This helps to lock in color and make them last longer!
- Use shampoo and conditioner that’s free from parabens and sulfates to avoid damaging your delicate strands. Harsh chemicals can cause your extensions to feel dry and brittle.
- Don’t overwash your red hair extensions. Red hair can fade really quickly, so the less you wash your extensions, the better. Aim for only as needed based on how often you wear them.
- Use heat styling tools sparingly. If you want your radiant red color to last, try not to blow dry or heat style your extensions. Heat can damage your strands and cause them to fade. Look for alternative heat-free styling techniques instead!
