Different hair extension methods have different wear-times. Depending on whether you go for a permanent, semi-permanent or a temporary method will determine on when you will be due back in the salon.

It’s important to stick to the maintenance schedule of the method you choose to ensure the health of your own hair and to keep your extensions looking their best.

The methods and their wear times:  

The Micro Bond method and the Micro Ring method have a wear time of 3 months, giving them the title of ‘permanent’ hair extensions. The Micro Ring method allows for the hair to be re-used and so will last for a further 3-6 months. The Micro Bond method needs new hair fitting each time.

Tape extensions last 6-8 weeks and then can be re-used giving them the title of ‘semi-permanent’ hair extensions. The same set can be used multiple times giving them a longer wear time.

Clip In extensions are a temporary method which can be easily clipped in and out when needed for special events. Our Clip In extensions are made using the same finest hair as all our other methods so with the correct care and maintenance you can keep the same Clip In set for many years!

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.
