If your original hair was blended with grey hair, then you will need to add grey hair when you order a hair system. This grey hair will give a natural look to your hair system.
If you would like to incorporate grey hairs in your hair system, please specify a grey percentage.
Grey percentages are the amount of grey hair in your system vs. another color (i.e. 60% brown 40% grey hair system) and can play a crucial part in achieving an age-appropriate color appearance.
You can control the exact amount of grey hair to be blended with your main hair color and determine exactly where you would like the grey hair to be added. There are eight main areas where you can add grey hair (front, top, crown, back, left temple, right temple, left side and right side). To replicate the natural growth pattern of grey hair, typically clients’ will order a larger percentage of grey hair through the sides.
If the hair sample you supply includes the correct amount of grey you would like, there is no need to specify a percentage of grey required – we can simply match the percentage of grey in the sample. However, if you are unsure what percentage of grey hair to add, you can order a Grey Percentage Chart with us. This will give you an accurate visual indication of how much grey you should request on your order form. When you have selected the grey percentage, please return the chart with your order details and we will refund or credit this amount towards your purchase.
You can choose human hair or synthetic hair for your grey hairs.
Human hair systems will reflect light better than synthetic hair and look more natural in sunlight. It’s real hair, after all!
Why is synthetic hair used for adding a touch of grey?
Remember that synthetic hair can’t be colored as easily as human hair and that human hair is prone to color fading. Hence, having a dual human/synthetic hair system allows you to color correct the human hair in your system without changing the gray percentage hair in your system.
“I have both human brown and gray hair in your system. I hit the beach all summer and notice that my hair color has faded from the sun. With an all-human brown/gray hair system, I can’t color correct the brown without coloring the gray, what should I do?”
Solution: Use color-resistant synthetic gray for a realistic gray percentage and you can color the brown hair without damage to the gray strands!
