Getting the perfect look with hair extensions!

Have you been planning your Summer hair makeover and not sure how many extensions you need to get the perfect look?

Hair extensions can give you the length and volume you desire, but choosing the right amount can be a little confusing.

Decide your hair goals

The first step in deciding how many hair extensions you need is to determine your hair goals. Do you want extensions for added volume, length, or both? Once you know what you want to achieve, you can start planning how many extensions you will need. If you want to gain length with extensions, they you will need to add more than if you only wanted volume.

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.
