Help me determine hair colors in a picture

I am going to get nubian twists for the first time and I need to order hair, but I want some opinions on the colors from this picture. I am no good at determining if something is a 4, a 30, ect.

Can you look at the picture and let me know what numbers/ colors you think are in the ladies hair.

Thank you so much!

    If the numbers you're talking about are the ones I'm thinking about, they only signify the level of the color and are not a standardized representation of a specific color. The lower the number, the darker the color.

    I may be misunderstanding you, but if you're ordering hair and not coloring what's already on your head I'd assume you needn't worry about the level, per so, so much as what colors you like / want.

    Yes, I am ordering hair, but I'm using E-on, so I can't get the hair here locally and was ordering online. It is a little difficult to match colors based on a picture.

    Thanks for the reply.
