Color samples are a cheaper alternative to a full color ring and are excellent for one-time color matching. They consist of pieces of hair that are taped to a small note card. You can also order samples of hair dye, which are blotted onto the white backside of the note cards shown in the picture, and covered with tape to prevent smudging.
We ship samples for $1.00 via First Class Mail. The take around 3-5 business days to arrive in the United States, and 2-4 weeks to arrive outside the United States.
There are three types of products that samples are available for: Synthetic Hair, Human Hair, or Hair Dye. Please note that we cannot send samples for products that are out of stock or special order, as we need to have the products physically here to be able to cut samples for them.
Synthetic Hair includes any type of in stock synthetic hair, not just 100% synthetic. For example, kanekalon jumbo braid, marley braid, and 3D Box Braid would all fall under synthetic hair.
Human Hair includes any in stock colors sold by the bag or by the foot (as well as clip-in extensions made from those colors), but not extensions that are hand-dyed.
Hair Dye samples are available for any brand of dye that we have in stock.
Pricing is per sample; if you need more than one color, please make sure to add more than one sample to the cart.
Please note that we do not accept returns/exchanges for color samples. All color sample sales are final.
We offer a free color matching service. For custom color matching, just send a sample of your hair--or anything that you want us to match the color of--in a plastic baggy to:
I Kick Shins
690 Roberts Rd #383
Pacifica, CA 94044
Please make sure to put the sample in a plastic bag along with a note indicating what product you want your sample matched with (for example "kanekalon jumbo braid" or "human weaving hair") and your e-mail address in the envelope. When we receive it, we'll match it up and let you know what comes closest.
Please do not put your e-mail address inside the plastic bag. The only thing that should be in the bag is the hair sample.
We are also happy to take color comparison pictures for you. If you'd like to see a few similar colors side by side, contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!
