Are You Looking For A Hair Extension Salon?

Hair extensions are a great way of changing your look. You can add thickness, length and even change the colour of your hair with extensions! But you do need to be aware that they can cost a lot of money, they take a long time to be applied and need to be applied properly. An inexperienced stylist can mean the difference between beautiful flowing locks and serious damage being inflicted to your natural hair; therefore it is essential to choose a hair extension salon very carefully indeed.

Not every hair stylist can fit hair extensions, they need to be specially qualified and have years of experience. Neither is every salon equipped to put in hair extensions, and even among salons that do offer the service, not every technique is the same. You need to do some research before making a short-list of salons and make a decision as to what sort of extensions you want. Once you have done this you need to set about finding a reputable salon and the best way to do this is through word-of-mouth referrals. If you know someone who has beautiful hair extensions then find out where they had them done and get yourself booked in for a consultation. Be prepared that you may have to travel in order to get good results. If personal references are proving difficult then have a look at online directories and book in for an initial consultation; this should be free.

As hair extensions are a pretty expensive hair treatment, it is essential to choose a salon that you are comfortable with. When you go for your initial consultation you need to look out for certain things before going ahead with your booking. Make sure that the salon itself is clean and neat with adequate lighting and mirrors and that it sells a selection of after-care products suitable for extensions. Ask the stylist to look at before and after style pictures of actual clients to demonstrate the calibre of their work. Also ask about the amount of experience the stylist has with different extension types as well as hair types. A stylist who has been involved with hair extensions for a number of years should be able to advise you on the best extension technique for your hair type and your needs.

At the end of your consultation the stylist should be able to provide you with a personalised written estimate for their services. This initial consultation should always be free as it is simply a way of asking questions and determining the best type of extension and method for each individual. During the consultation process the stylist should ask you questions about your hobbies and lifestyle in order to see if extensions really are for you and which method is most appropriate. Lastly, you need to choose a stylist who you feel comfortable with and can chat to as you are likely to be sat in the chair for a good few hours! A friendly and personable relationship will make the experience much more enjoyable.

Hair extensions do require a certain amount of after care and maintenance and a good stylist will advise you on follow-up appointments and maintenance tips. They should also provide you with specific hair products such as soft-bristle brushed and mild shampoo and conditioners designed specifically for extensions.

You know when you’ve found a good salon when you are made to feel at ease immediately by the staff and feel confident in the stylist’s ability to provide you with high quality hair extensions. They should be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and give you sound advice on important issues such as after-care. If you strike lucky with a hair extension salon then make sure you pass on the good news to your family and friends so they too can get beautiful hair!
