We are putting the record straight on hair extension misconceptions!

There are a lot of misconceptions in the world of hair extensions, they have had a bad reputation in the past of being badly applied and damaging your natural hair. We are on hand to put the record straight!

You might think that hair extensions are just for the Kim Kardashians of the world, for celebrities who change their look every other week. In fact, hair extensions are used most for adding a little extra volume to your natural hair and giving you the length, you have always desired.

A recent survey has found that now one in three women have hair extensions! At Vixen & Blush we are leading the way in natural looking hair and having extensions will be one of your best kept secrets.

As hair extensions are more convincing than ever, Daily Mail explored the world of extensions. Sharon Pink booked in at Vixen & Blush for her transformation. “I used to think extensions were just for celebrities, but then my daughter had them – they looked amazing. So, two years ago, I went to Vixen & Blush, off Oxford Street, and I’ve never looked back. I go every three months. It costs more than £400 a time, but it’s my only beauty indulgence”

“There are a lot of misconceptions about hair extensions. But I follow the instructions from my salon – I don’t put my hair up too much as it puts pressure on the bonds and use a special shampoo and a Tangle Teezer brush. I’ve never had so much as a snapped strand.”

Once you’ve had your hair extensions applied it’s important to follow the correct aftercare and maintenance to ensure you get the most out of your extensions and keep your natural hair healthy.

If you’re ready for your very own transformation we offer free consultations contact us now to be booked in.

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.
