Long Hair Extensions

Do older women look good with long hair? Daily Mail Vixen & Blush Makeover.

At Vixen & Blush we are leading the way in natural looking hair extensions while caring for client’s own hair. Linda came into our salon for a transformation, at 61 she was worried about what hair extensions would look like on her and if they were targeted towards the younger generation, since suffering from hair thinning her hair hadn’t been the same and had been sitting flat no matter what product she applied.

Hair extensions are for women of all ages and hair thinning is very common but with our Grown Your Own programme it is something we can help some clients overcome. Unlike hair loss which happens unexpectedly and often without a defined cause, hair thinning can occur due to an easily identifiable reason and therefore be reversed. Our Grow Your Own programme launched in 2020 and seeks to help clients reach their goal of regaining full hair health. You can find out more about our dedicated Grow Your Own Programme and read the stories of our graduates.

Since having her transformation at Vixen & Blush Linda commented “The transformation is dramatic, and I love my new hair. I would certainly challenge anyone to tell me it doesn’t look real. For me, my new look has certainly scotched the myth that older women should go for the chop”

But as I go about my daily life — popping into the supermarket, walking the dog, attending a book launch, getting ready for a party — I feel as though I’ve been given an injection of energy-boosting vitamins. Yes, my new look has put a spring in my step”

Hair extensions are a great confidence boost, achieving your dream locks and helping the health of your natural hair. We work closely with each client to ensure they have all the maintenance and aftercare knowledge to get the most out of their hair extensions.

If you think it’s time for your very own hair transformation don’t hesitate to contact us and book in for your free consultation.

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.
