Brunette Hair Extensions London

We have recently been featured on Elle Magazine’s article about everything you need to know about hair extensions that look epic!

“If there’s one person that knows everything there is to know about hair extensions it’s Sarah McKenna aka the ex-biochemist, hairdresser and owner of the hottest hair extension salon in London, Vixen & Blush (aka where Alicia Vikander gets her hair extensions done).

“Renowned for creating natural-looking extensions that are super high quality and custom-made to fit you (this isn’t your cheapo out of the packet deal), Sarah is the go-to on how to nab Blake Lively’s ‘do and avoid the dreaded Jodie Marsh mullet”

We know the world of hair extensions can be daunting and that’s why we offer free consultations in the salon and online!  At Vixen & Blush we offer 4 different methods Micro Rings, Micro Bond, Tape & Weft.

One of the most popular methods in our salon is Micro Rings, they are a permanent method that is applied strand by strand are worn for 3 months and then the hair can be re-used and re fitted. We also offer Micro Bond Extensions which have the same wear time and are perfect if you have finer hair. The difference for Micro Bonds is that the hair can’t be re-used, and new hair is needed each time.

Tape extensions are a semi-permanent method we offer in the salon and to purchase on our online shop. They last around 6-8 week and then can be re-fitted. Tape extensions are completely undetectable and great for adding volume to your hair.

Our temporary method is Clip in Hair Extensions, they are perfect if you want to add that instant volume boost to your hair without the commitment as they can be clipped in and out each day and because they are made using the finest hair, the same as our other methods your set will last you for years.

Visit our price list to find out more about each method.

Sarah Mckenna

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.
