I have a winning option for you. Don't take pictures with the flash. Your extensions will dull with wear and if you keep conditioning the front of the wig no one will notice. Shine isn't something to be ashamed of at all. And it's fine if they don't match perfectly. It's quite possible they're different fibers.

I hate it when people use the flash on me anyways, it highlights how deathly pale I am and gives me demon eyes. And if someone is talking your picture, don't let them take a picture of the back of you! It's just good courtesy but some people are foreign to courtesy.

If the shine is an honest-to-God HUGE deal for you, then just spray the extensions with some wig spray (not hairspray) once you install them. It should bring down the shine a bit.

If that is a New Look or Sepia wig, drop me an email at sales@cosworx.com and I'll see if we have any extra wigs lying around that we can give you the hair from for extensions. From the photo it looks like a color 144 wig and we have a Cher wig in 144 that we used for a sample photo once and can't sell. Just pay us for the shipping (like $5) and I'll clip some of the hair off for you to use as extension material.
