They will be useless for styling. Also check the weight of the piece. If it feels heavy in your hands, it’s going to feel heavy in your hair. All day. And if you have fine hair, it may not hold.
When shopping colors, rather than trying to find the precise color match to your hair, why not go for a shade lighter or darker. This will add dimension and show off the texture of the style. If in doubt, go slightly lighter for that highlighted look. Most up styles actually look better with some color differentiation.
