FIRST color check & advice is free! Book this offer only in case you need a second advice based on a new picture!

You have already ordered a custom color hair piece after your first color advice?

Then you needn't book this offer, your advice is free!
Many of our customers change their hair colors now and then and come back to get a hair piece matching their new color. This is why a new advice for a new order is free.

How to proceed

The photo hair color check is an alternative if the online color charts in each hair piece offer are not sufficient for you. E-mail your picture to [email protected]!

A photo color check works despite your hair looking different in different kinds of light, because the hair piece will change like your hair if we match colors in neutral light! So please take a picture according to our instructions further below, to ensure neutral light!

Important information about hair colors, please read!

Your hair color can be matched perfectly including highlights, lowlights and all shades, because all our hair pieces are made to order exclusively! One's own hair usually contains 2-3 colors, only dark hair (colors 1-6) often consists of 1 color only. Hence we include up to 3 colors in the price for most hair extensions and you can add additional basic colors at little extra costs if needed. The only exception are our extra long hair pieces, 60-100 cm/ 24-39 inches long. Here only two basic colors can be mixed due to technical reasons with this extremely long hair. 
In many cases one of our basic colors is close to your hair color, so we would pick it as the basic color for your hair piece as well. Additional colors will make your hair piece look real, because they add shades, nuances, highlights and shimmer of your own hair to the hair piece. If your own hair is right in betweentwo basic colors, a fine blend ofthese two colors will be the basic mix for your hair color. We might need to add additional colors for highlights or a shimmer in this case, too. 

How we make your color mix

We have developed our own techniques, because working with synthetic hair differs strongly from having your hair dyed at your local hairdresser's. Your hairdresser blends the liquid color and applies it to your hair. We take bundles of hair in the basic hair colors we need for your hair piece, part them and put them together again until we have the desired mix.
This time-consuming work by hand enables us to make thick streaks up to fine highlights. Or to get a fine blend which actually is a new color and you cannot recognize the single basic colors in this mix any more.
So the technical side differs strongly from hair coloring at the hairdresser's but we get the same result! Just to give you an example: When we blend two fair shades of blonde and a copperish shade, we get a new shade of blonde with a slightly copperish shimmer.

Process of photo-color-consulting (first and secone one)

Mail us a picture of your hair (please pay attention to instructions further below!) we check for basic colors and mail or call you with the basiccolors you need. We will let you know the numbers, the proportions for each color and the kind of mix (highlights, fine blend etc.) we propose an you can check them in our picture charts online. 
Then there are 3 options:
1. You agree with our advice and we make your hair piece accordingly.
2. You let us know which details of your advice you want to change and we make your hair piece accordingly.
3. You check our advice live by ordering color swatches. There are offers in all hair piece sections in our shop.

When do you need to book a 2nd consulting for your hair color? 

You indeed should need the first one only, if you mail us a perfect picture according to our instructions straight with the first one. 
We all have pictures on our phones and laptops, so our instructions are often skipped and customers send us pictures from their library. In most cases these pictures are sufficient for narrowing down the choice, but we cannot determine the exact mix with all details with them. In these cases you either have to determine the details we need for your hair piece yourself or book a second consulting at extra costs and send us a clear picture according to our instructions. 

Instructions for taking a high quality picture for color regocnition

Device & resolution: 
You can use your phone or a regular camera, but we need a large picture, minimum resolution is 600 px for shortest side, the larger the better! Don't use a flash!

Natural daylight, no extreme light conditions light full sun or deep shade, a cloudy day is perfect. Take the picture with the stream of light! Your hair color looks different in different kinds of light, your hair piece should change the same way, so we must match it in this most neutral light situation!

Your hair: 
Your entire open and dry hair (any close-ups or details shots of a strand only, any pictures with hats or fascinators, braids, updos, pony- or pigtails!). You must be the only person, any party or group pictures!

Image section: 
Take the picture from the side or the back, you should be seen from the top of your head until the middle of your back, different color shades can be recognized much better from a little distant perspective. If you can't but take a selfie, use a selfie stick!
Number of pictures: 
Only 1! 
If you wish to send us several pictures, please add which one we should use for our advice and which ones serve as additional information only. This is necessary, because only you know your real hair color so only you can determine which picture reflects it best.

Mail your picture to [email protected] after booking and paying for your second color consulting. We will contact you upon receipt of payment.

Die 2.Farbberatung war nötig, weil die Lichtverhältnisse auf dem ersten eingereichten Foto ungeeignet zur exakten Farbeinschätzung waren. Es lohnt sich, hier buchstabengetreu nach der Anweisung vorzugehen! Die Einschätzung der Farbnuancen im richtigen Mischverhältnis ist eine Kunst, die Melanie meisterhaft beherrscht. Am Ende war das bestellte Zopfteil nicht vom natürlichen Haar zu unterscheiden, was ja für den Hingucker-Effekt essentiell ist. Und der ist so groß, dass man von Passanten auf der Straße auf die außergewöhnliche Frisur angesprochen wird!

Kommentar von Melanie von Magic Tribal Hair:
Vielen Dank für Deine ausführliche und tolle Bewertung! Es stimmt, wenn ich Zweifel daran habe, dass die Lichtverhältnisse auf dem Foto optimal sind, frage ich lieber nach. Denn Farbe ist Licht, demnach ist Licht das A und O und meine Anleitung berücksichtigt alle notwendigen Aspekte um die Farbe treffend einzufangen ;-).

Hier konnte ich sehen, dass eine Kopfseite deutlich dunkler und blasser im Ton war, was eigentlich nicht sein kann, wenn man die Anleitung befolgt. Bevor ich die kostenlose Farbberatung für ein abweichendes Bild benutze, frage ich lieber nach und weise darauf hin, dass das Haarteil wahrscheinlich nicht 100 % passen wird. Sodass man die Chance hat, mir ein neues Bild 100 % nach meiner Anleitung für die kostenlose Beratung aufzunehmen. Hier hat die Kundin sich erst nach der kostenlosen Beratung dazu entschieden, daher brauchten wir die zweite und kostenpflichtige Farbberatung.

Totaler Treffer mit deiner Farbauswahl, gerne wieder

Melanie nimmt sich sehr viel Zeit die Anteile der unterschiedlichen Farbnuanen zu bestimmen, damit diese später auch gut zum eigenen Haar passen. Sie hat mir mehrere Vorschläge unterbreitet, wovon ich einen wählen konnte. Ich finde, sie macht einen super Job und bewundere ihre freundliche und ausdauernde Art. Danke Melanie!
