Tress Allure Color Codes

All wig brands label their colors with either a descriptive name or with numbers and letters. The code description of a particular color is made up of the sum of its letters and numbers. The number lets you know the main color or in the case of several numbers, how those colors are put together.
/ slash mark - A slash between numbers indicates the colors are blended.
The letter or letters usually indicates how the colors interact with each other and how they appear on the style, ie: (H) highlighted, (T) tipped, (F) frosted, (TT) two toned, (M) mixed, (R) rooted, (SR) soft rooted, (LR) Long Rooted, (B) blended, etc. Each brand has their own methodology in using letters as you will find below.

We hope that learning how to read and understand the codes/ numbers will make color choosing more comprehensible.

But before we discuss color codes for each of our brands, it is important to have some understanding of the industry-standard color families. There may be some slight variations among brands, but they all pretty much adhere to the following color families.

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. In a hair salon however, the word has become a way of life. ... This allows for a sun-kissed, natural looking hair colour, similar to what nature gives us as children. When done properly the balayage technique leaves softer, less noticeable regrowth lines.
Balayage involves color literally being painted through the hair in streaks to give it a sunkissed look.
Highlights are swept onto the hair by hand in a free-form sort of way. Highlights are concentrated at the ends of the hair rather than at the roots.

There are 8 Balayage colors - The color Name plus the designation Balayage color :
ex: Sugar Plum - Designation under the color name: Balayage Color - Description: Dark chocolate brown roots blends towards the ends with a subtle mixture of platinum and pure, marshmallow blonde.

  • Ceylon
  • Cinnamon Ginger
  • Coconut Brown Sugar
  • Hibiscus
  • Peach Bellini
  • Sugar Plum
  • Sweet Mango

Dynamica Colors
