Blending hair extensions is a very important step to make them look seamless with your natural hair.
Hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and thickness to your natural hair. Hair extensions have a had bad reputation in the past, but we focus on creating natural results so having hair extensions will be your best kept secret!
All the methods we offer are discreet and super wearable. We ensure you have all the maintenance and after care advice you need to ensure you care for your extensions and natural hair. A lot of our clients find their hair is in better condition after wearing hair extensions as they spend less time on heat styling allowing their natural hair to grow and feel healthier. We have created a blog post with the golden rules to follow when caring for your extensions, have a read of the maintenance advice for hair extensions.
Choose the right colour
We ask that you come to your consultation and appointment with a colour you are 100% happy with. This allows our stylists to choose the right colour match for your hair. We are lucky enough to have our very own lab – The London Hair Lab based in our salon which gives us instant access to the best quality hair and allows our stylists to create custom colour blends for each client. We can even do same day consultations and fittings as we have all the hair ready to go in the salon and don’t need to order anything in.
The Cut & Style
Our stylists often soften the ends of your cut to allow the extensions to blend seamlessly. We can cut your hair on the day of your appointment so there is no need to book in for a haircut before your appointment. At Vixen & Blush we are known for our beachy waves and love styling your hair at the end of appointment. Once styled hair extensions hold a curl for 3 days allowing you to have continued good hair days!
Applying Extensions Correctly
If you see badly blended extensions, it’s probably because they haven’t been fitted by a hair extension specialist. It’s crucial that hair extensions are applied correctly to ensure a seamless blend and ensure the health of your natural hair.
There are different methods of application that can create a seamless blend. Read our blog post How Do Hair Extensions Work to get a better understanding of the different methods we have available in the salon.
Use The Correct Products
We recommend using a salon quality shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair extensions looking their best. On the day of your appointment, we can recommend the best products for your hair type and have a range available in the salon to purchase.

Sarah McKenna is the founder of Vixen & Blush and The London Hair Lab. Sarah graduated as a research biochemist in 2005 and started a career within the pharmaceutical industry, before becoming a hair extensions expert. In 2010, Sarah gained insight into the hair extensions industry and could see that clients had a very poor value/quality proposition. At that time, poor-quality hair extensions were available, at prohibitively high prices. Sarah left her initial career and set out on a mission to improve the hair extensions industry in the UK, using her research and development skills.
Spending 3 years securing a high-quality and sustainable supply of human hair, Sarah then developed new products and fitting techniques to allow long-term refits of the same hair. In this way, Sarah was able to offer hair extensions services at a more affordable price to clients, while improving the quality of the service for her clients.
With Vixen & Blush starting in 2012 as a 1 chair salon in London, Sarah quickly grew the business to what it is today, a team of more than 20 hair professionals working together as London’s leading hair extensions specialists.
