Vivid Pink Hair Extensions

Using North Invisible Root Glaze tape extensions in either Intense Ash or Creamy Blonde, you can dye the roots to match the client’s head and ends in this berry purple to add colour without ever dying the client’s hair.

Black and white 

This black-and-white layered look was created by North’s own educator, Cameron Dermody. To create this layered look, Cameron did not apply any black dye to the client’s hair, but instead installed North Professional Hair colour #1B tape extensions under a thin veil of the client’s natural hair.

Creamy blonde 

Warm, creamy blondes are a staple in UK salons and look effortlessly luxurious,  bright and glowy. At North Professional Hair, we have developed the colour #18/22 to blend seamlessly into this shade of hair, to give your client instant volume, thickness and length to such a soft, elegant finish.

Rich brunette 

Rich, decadent brunettes are an all-around favourite - matching almost any skin tone, texture and client aesthetic, as well as any season! North Professional Hair tape extensions in colour #2 and colour #4 are the perfect way to enhance these chocolatey tones, adding length, volume, thickness and dimension.

A black so dark it’s blue? The best dimensional black shades often have a blue hue to them in certain lights. At North Professional Hair, we’ve developed the colour #1 to be the perfect, multi-tonal blue-black tape extension on the market - ideal for adding dimension, length, volume and thickness.

Iced blonde 

Iced, ashy blondes are increasingly popular, with the removal of warmth from the hair looking show-stopping in the light. North Professional Hair’s colour #111 is the perfect ash blonde tape extension to help develop your client’s length and thickness, or to add iced dimensions throughout their hair.

Blushed grey 

With clients not quite ready to embrace their greys, subtle pastel colours can blend into their roots beautifully. This blushed grey creation uses North Professional Hair tape extensions to give the client thickness and volume, whilst keeping their choppy bob. We recommend using our North Invisible Root Glaze tapes in Intense Ash to create styles like this one.

For a look like this one, we recommend colour #2 for the dark and colour #101 for the light.
