One of the most important things when buying a new set of hair extensions is that you get the
perfect shade match. This is the key to ensuring a seamless blend between your natural hair and
your new extensions so that no one will know you’re wearing them. In case you need some help,
we’ve popped everything you need to know on finding the perfect match below.

Shade Matching Service
So that you can find the best match we offer a shade matching service here at Milk + Blush
for anyone who’s unsure of what to pick. In order for our team to find your best match
we always ask for you to send us some pictures of your hair. We get that this can be a
little tricky but there are some golden rules to follow to get it right. Here’s what you need to do…
Shade Match Do's
DO Take Your Pictures Outside
In order for us to get the best shade match we need to see your hair in natural, even lighting that
won’t distort your hair colour. This is why we recommend standing outside, in natural light but
avoiding the shade or direct, bright sunlight. It’s a good shout to find a simple background too, that
won’t distract from your hair colour.
DO Wear Your Hair Down
We match the hair extensions to the ends of your hair and not the roots so we really need to see
it down. It’s impossible for us to match to hair that’s up so avoid ponytails or braids, make sure your
hair isn’t tucked into anything and remove any hair accessories before you take your pictures.
DO Take Your Pictures From Different Angles
The most important picture we need is of all of your hair down at the back but it would be great to
get some more angles too. Take a photo from the front, side and back so that we can get the best
possible idea of your hair colour.
Shade Match Dont's
DON’T Use Filters or Artificial Lighting
As tempting as it is to use a filter on your pictures this will distort your hair shade and will make it
tricky for us to get the best match. You also want to avoid using a ring light or any other
artificial light so that we can get a true representation of your hair colour.
DON’T Take Pictures Inside
We know that you guys think it’s super strange when we ask for pictures outside but taking them
inside could distort the colour of your hair. It tends to make your photographs a lot warmer which
will make it tricky for us to see your real shade.
DON’T Take A Picture Of Your Roots
We get lots of close-up snaps of the top of peoples head but as we need to match to the ends of
your hair they won’t give you the best match. Lots of our customers worry about their root shade
too but the top of your hair extensions won’t be visible when they’re clipped in, so you don’t need
to worry about this.
