Color Families & Shades

Choosing colors can be challenging, especially when wigs come in as many as 40 different color options. This is complicated by the fact that one’s idea of brown may be different from another’s idea of brown. The letters and numbers in the color description come from a color system called the color code developed by the wig industry based on natural human hair colors.

  • Browns from 2 to 12, and
  • Blondes from 14 to 26.
  • Platinum colors are blondes with less warmth in them.
    • 613 is a golden platinum that’s the perfect balance between blonde and platinum.
    • Platinum colors range from 22 to 23, then jump from 101 to 104 which have more ash in them.
  • The grey family goes from 34 to 60.
  • The red family is split between natural reds and vibrant reds.
    • Natural reds range from 27 to 33
