Discover the perfect method and length for you with the best natural hair extensions from Vixen and Blush!

To have hair extensions fitted and to achieve the long hair look you will need to have a minimum of 4 inches of hair. This would be enough hair so that if you gather all your hair back it makes it into a hair tie!

What if I’m not sure my hair is long enough?

If you’re not sure your hair is long enough or if you would like some advice on having hair extensions fitted, we would recommend booking in for a free consultation. We offer free consultations in our central London salon, or you can book via Face-Time. This would be a good chance for one of our stylists to have a good look at your hair and to let you know if your hair is suitable for extensions and which method would be best.

We have 4 options available in our salon Micro Ring, Micro Bonds, Tape and Clip In extensions. You can leave your appointment with a test strand to feel what it’s like wearing hair extensions and test them out before you commit to your appointment.

Will I be suitable for hair extensions?

The majority of people are suitable for hair extensions. When you have your consultation, your own hair is examined and one of our stylists can advise you which method would be best suited or if you are unsuitable which is a rare occurrence.

Can I see some short hair extension transformations?

Of course, we love a subtle but powerful transformation, hair extensions offer you something no amount of hair products can. The above transformation was created by Megan who added a discreet 1/4 of Micro Bonds to fill out the thickness at the sides giving a healthy hair look. She used the perfect root to tip colour match which she selected from our in-house lab – The London Hair Lab making a custom colour match possible for every client.

Micro Bonds are a great option if you have a finer hair type and are looking for a permanent method, they last for 3 months. To find out more about the methods we offer in the salon visit our website!

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.
