FAQ: Will Great Lengths be a perfect colour match?

You’re one step closer to booking your Great Lengths consultation and adding length or volume, or both, to your natural hair, but another important question has just cropped up and you’re now wondering “will Great Lengths be a perfect colour match?’


You’ve heard the quality of the hair is unsurpassed and that there are two application methods available, but how exactly will the extensions match your hair colour? It’s a very valid question. The final look needs to be flawless and blend with your natural hair. One shade off or the wrong colour match and it may become extremely obvious that you’re wearing extensions. Fear not, with over 60 shades ranging from multi-blended base colours including 17 blonde shades, to balayage, root stretch and fashion colours, we’re confident we have the shade for you. What’s more, our certified stylists are expertly trained to select and blend our shades to perfectly match your colour and create a seamless and undetected blend.


Whether you’re looking to match your natural shade or dreaming of transforming your hair with mellow pastels or vibrant reds, creating a seamless colour match to your new extensions is of the utmost priority – to you, us, and your stylist. During their training, all Great Lengths certified stylists are taught the art of creating the perfect blend, often working with several different shades to create the perfect match for your colour.


During your free consultation, your stylist will colour match your natural hair (whether it’s coloured or your natural tone), to give you the perfect match which will also add depth and enhance your natural hair colour.


Great Lengths are often added to enhance the colour of hair and in some instances create on trend looks such as balayage effects and adding bold colours without having to colour or cause any damage to the natural hair. With some of our bright and beautiful haired VIPs including Strictly Come dancing star Dianne Buswell and London blogger and DJ extraordinaire, Zoe London, it ‘s not hard to see how Great Lengths can work for bold hair colours. Other GL Lovelies like Caroline Flack and Andrea McLean fly the flag for the balayage and natural colour effects with their Great Lengths however, showing no matter what your hair colour, Great Lengths can and will be perfectly matched to your colour.
