When it comes to choosing the right color for hair toppers, knowing some basic information about hair color is necessary.
Here are some tips to help understand UniWigs's color codes.
1. Blended colors are indicated with a 'B' in the color code. UniWigs blends their solid colors to achieve new colors that mimic natural tones.
2. Tipped colors are indicated with a 'T' in the color code. Highlighting is demonstrated through the body of the wig or hair pieces, as well as the ends.
3. Highlighted colors ('H') were especially designed around current fashion forward styles, adding flare with multiple colors streaked into a base color.
4. Rooted colors are indicated with an 'R' in the color code. The roots are colored a darker shade than the rest of the wig. This has an appealing effect of colored hair with natural regrowth. For example: 16R, is a rooted chocolate caramel shade.
On-screen color quality may vary depending on your monitor's resolution.
For the best color match, try ordering a UniWigs Color Ring.

Hello, I have (3) hair toppers in the color of almond frost. I would like to tone down the color to slightly darker shade of light brown on the entire topper. I’m getting tired of the blonde but don’t want to buy new toppers. They are still in good shape. What are your recommendations? And I’d I do use a toner will it damage or dry/ frizz the hair. Also what solution do you recommend? Thank you Theresa Zaborowski.
