When I had highlighted hair I would buy to sets of hair extensions. One would be lighter for the highlighted hair and the other darker for my base color.  I would combine them and it looked great!

I was going to do extensions but i couldn’t find ones that matched perfectly. ur option if you can’t find ones that match perfectly is to get ur hair stylist to highlight or dye the extensions i just didn’t want to pay for it so i didn’t buy any. thats what i would suggest tho! (: make sure u buy 100% human hair tho or it won’t work

@morkiemama:  I did! I bought the hair and clips and sewed the clips to the hair.  I hope it helps! 🙂

I had extensions that didn’t match, so my hairstylist did lowlites and hilights. We tried about 3 times (I’m surprised that they didn’t fry)!. They were close enough. My hair is dark ash blonde, with light blonde hilights. The only way I could wear them is with my hair curly. Everytime I wore them I got so many complements. No one could tell they were a different color OR that it wasn’t my real hair. 

Maybe you can try different styles with the ones you have and take pictures and see if you can tell that the colors are different. We are much more critical of ourselves and notice things that no one else will. 

I also just saw ones at Sally’s beauty supply, that were hi lighted. I think they were Remy brand. They were around $150.

@morkiemama:  I have found that extensions pretty much use universal color numbers.  So, if you were to look at a #4 color swatch in store (or if you could see in a salon) you would know what the online ones colors are in person.  Check out Ebay, there are quite a few multi colored ones.  I have purchased at least 10 sets (for myself and others) and have yet to be disappointed in color or quality.

From watching the informational videos on it, I learned that the trick is not to drive yourself crazy trying to find the exact match, but rather try to find ones that blend well with your natural hair. Extensions.com has an option to purchase a color ring with samples of all colors from each line. You can keep it (if you change your color often) or return it for a refund when you pick your shade.
