Hair Extensions for short hair

How long does my hair need to be to get hair extensions?

There are exceptions to every rule, but as a guideline we ask that clients must have at least 4 inches of hair to have hair extensions fitted.  This doesn’t mean you can’t still come and see us! Our consultations are free of charge and welcome to anybody who is interested in having hair extensions, if your hair isn’t long enough yet, we’ll advise you on what you can do and when to come back.

The key to our flawless results is to always ensure hair extensions look natural, this is especially important for clients with naturally short hair. To achieve this, we need to firstly make sure that we add a lot of hair and secondly, finish off with an amazing haircut, giving your hair depth and movement.

Will my hair extensions be really hard to style?

This is another common question for those wanting hair extensions for short hair.  Will I actually be able to make my new hair extensions look good?

We know that with the right advice you can absolutely get to grips with your new instant hair within a week or so.  Of course it is a shock when you suddenly have hair to work with – but we love to offer styling tips and guidance on how to make the most of your new hair.

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.
