Color samples consist of pieces of hair that are taped to a small 1.75" x 3.5" note card.
Please note that we cannot send samples for out of stock or special order items, as the hair has to be physically here for us to be able to cut samples from it.
If the product you want is available in multiple brands/styles, we recommend specifying which brand you want. Sometimes colors vary a bit across different brands, so keeping it consistent is the best way to ensure an accurate match. If you do not specify, we will send whatever it most popular.
Pricing is per sample; if you need more than one color, please make sure to add more than one sample to the cart.
Shipping: We ship samples for free via First Class Letter. First Class Letter takes around 3-7 business days to be delivered in the United States, and 12 weeks to be delivered outside the United States, and does not include tracking. If you would like to pay extra for your samples to be sent with tracking, please order our Color Samples with Trackable Shipping instead.
Color Matching: We also offer a free color matching service. For 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 "RastAfri marley braid") 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.
Comparison Pictures: 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!
