    Although red hair is incredibly popular, only 2% of the world's population have naturally red hair, which is no surprise that redheads often have a harder time finding human hair extensions that match their hair coour due to the lack of variation in shades.

    There is such a wide range of hair extension colours available, but if you look a little closer, you’ll notice that when it comes to red hair, there is a visible lack of variety. You’ll often find a couple shades of red hair which are either too bright or just appear orange.

It makes an easy colour to work with when adding to your own hair. If you aren’t ready to fully commit to the full strawberry/ ginger blonde look, try adding highlights of this colour throughout your mane.

    Bright Red Hair Extensions

    This red is for the bold, and as this is not a natural red hair colour, our Bright Red hair extensions are for those looking for a vivid, intense colour. If you are naturally a redhead, we recommend this colour if you’re considering going brighter. As red hair is thicker and holds its pigment stronger than any other hair colour, it’s best to avoid bleaching as it damages the hair. If you are looking for a colour match, this colour would be more suitable for a more orange base red than a pink base.
