Ponytail with hair extensions

Looking to upgrade your up-do this autumn? We love seeing new hairstyles and we predict that hair up will be the fuss free hair trend all winter!

Hair extensions can enhance any hairstyle by adding the volume and thickness you need to bulk out your up-do! We can do this by either adding hair for volume or by adding the length you need for a long, thick ponytail!

Extra volume ponytails enhance the thickness of your own hair and make your up-do’s look their best! We love using extra hair to conceal hairbands or for creating plaits within your ponytail – the options are endless. Baby braids can be used to give texture and take your ordinary ponytail to the next level. Our finest quality hair extensions can be worn in any hairstyle and be heat styled to achieve your desired look. The quality of our hair means they can be treated as you would your own hair which gives you many more options when it comes to wearing different hairstyles.

For a temporary hair extension method, we advise wearing our clip in hair extensions they are a very versatile method and  can be used in many ways! As Clip In extensions are a temporary method we recommend wearing them once or twice a week for special occasions.

We offer Clip In appointments in the salon where you can have one of our expert stylists colour match, fit, cut & style a set of Clip In extensions. They can also advise you on the best amount of hair to achieve your desired look. If you can’t make it into our central London salon, we stock our full range of Clip In extensions online! You can choose the best colour match and amount of hair and have your new Clip In set delivered straight to your door. We would still advise you having your Clip In set cut by a hairdressers to ensure a seamless look.

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.
