Dreaming of a sunny escape and want to have good hair days with extensions?

As we’ve got past Blue Monday it’s time to start planning your sunny escapes for the year. Have you been dreaming of a beach holiday but not sure if it’s going to be easy with your hair extensions? Fear not, we are on hand to talk you through how to keep your extensions looking their best whilst soaking up the sun!

When you’re on holiday it can be easy to relax and completely forget your usual routine. There are just a few golden rules you need to follow to ensure you hair extensions stay looking their best throughout your trip.  We have simplified the rules so you can still take care of your hair easily whilst enjoying your holiday.

If you’re planning a sun-soaked hot holiday and will be in and out of the sea or the swimming pool we advise you wear your hair in a low ponytail or plait. The same rules apply with not wearing hair up in any tight or high styles. Once you’re out of the water it’s important you release your hair and let the sun dry it out naturally making sure your roots are fully dry. It’s best to avoid wearing a hat whilst your hair is wet so than the sun can dry your hair as soon as possible.

Another very important rule for holidays is to rinse any chlorine or salt water out of your hair to prevent discolouration. Having hair extensions means you will have endless options to explore with styling! From low pony’s plaits and beachy waves that hold.

We love seeing the way our clients style their hair extensions! It’s worth taking the extra time to style your hair as with hair extensions they really hold their stylel. If you’ve plaited your hair extensions once released you with have a gorgeous natural curl and with no heat needed.

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.
