Comparing Blonde Extensions Shades #80 vs. #60
This post is for any stylist who needs help comparing blonde extensions shades. If you are going to do custom color, we recommend shopping for #60 or #80.
Why are hair extensions great for vivid colors?
- You can add pops of color and custom designs without damaging natural hair.
- Clients can get vibrant, vivid colors without having to process their hair.
- They're perfect for creating unique colors.
How’s #80 different from #60?
For years Donna Bella’s #60 has topped the charts in popularity as the lightest and most neutral shade of blond. But all that is about to change with the release of #80. Both are closely related in color but differ dramatically in tone. By comparison, #60 is bright and warm while #80 is cool and smoky. The two can be used together to add dimension to your install but it’s important to know the differences between the two depending on which look you are trying to achieve.
Because Donna Bella’s extensions are 100% Remy Human Hair, they can be custom colored just like your natural hair. Coloring your extensions can significantly impact your overall look because it is the ultimate customization technique. It creates a better blend to your natural hair and makes you feel like your hair extensions were made just for you. We recommend using #80 as your base because its neutral coloring acts as the perfect blank canvas for bright and saturated coloring jobs.
So, whether you’re looking to embrace your inner ice queen with the lightest of all blond extensions, or your inner mermaid with vibrant blues, greens, and violets, #80 White Ash Blond is the color for you!

Tips for Vivid Coloring
- Always color before installation. If you are using tape in the hair, you’ll need to replace the tape.
- Use a Hair Coloring mat and keep tension in the hair when applying color.
- Don't lighten or bleach; only deposit or tone the extensions.
- Clean your hands between colors to avoid and color bleeding.
- Saturate near the seam to avoid banding at the top.
- Ensure that each section is fully saturated on both sides of the extension. Allow for appropriate depositing time.
