Highlighted or mixed shade hair extensions are one of the most popular colour varieties that you can find. Many people prefer to have a blend of tones and colours in their hair rather than one block shade as it tends to have a more natural finish and is less upkeep. You can find assortments of 2 or 3 different shades in highlighted clip in hair extensions which also tend to be easier to match with tricky hair colours. Here at Cliphair we have over 17 highlighted hair extensions combinations that range from brown hair with blonde highlights, very dark brunette mixes, and extra light ashy blonde combinations.
Colour Terminology Buster
Quite often in the hair and beauty industry technical language is used to describe products and shades. This is all well and good if you are trained to understand these words but for the everyday extension wearer it can be quite confusing! We’ve simplified some common colour terminology below to help you understand our descriptions, this could also help you when explaining to your stylist how you want your colour to look.
- Undertones - Subtle tones underneath the hair surface that influence the overall colour.
- Warm - Gold/Red undertones.
- Golden - Yellow/Orange undertones.
- Brassy - When the hair is too yellow or orange.
- Ashy - Cooler/grey/silver undertones.
- Highlights - A dying technique that adds lighter streaks to the hair in many different formats. Sometimes in foils, freehand painted or through a cap, does not touch the scalp which is what gives a more natural finish and less harsh regrowth.
- Lowlights - A dying technique that adds darker streaks to the hair in different formats. Sometimes in foils, freehand painted or pulled through a cap.

Auburn, Caramel and chocolatey tones go extremely well with dark brown hair. Using these shades to add highlights gives the hair a very natural, Sunkissed finish.
