Create the salon perfect wave at home with our 5 easy steps.

If you struggle to lock down those loose bouncy waves that have been created in the salon at home, you’re not alone. We have created the 5 golden rules for achieving this coveted look yourself.

Waves never date and they are a great way to style your hair for a low maintenance look that lasts. All of our hair extension methods are made using the finest hair from The London Hair Lab. Once styled it will hold your waves for days ensuring less styling time but more voluminous and healthy hair, what’s not to love! It also means that less heat will be going on your natural hair allowing it to grow healthier. 

In the salon once we have fitted your hair extensions we love to create a style that suits you, whether you want to have a full glam holly-wood bounce, beachy soft wave or a super sleek straight look.

Your time for excellent hair has arrived, see below for our 5 top tips:

  1. Make sure you have the correct tools, we would recommend the GHD platinum straightening iron. 
  2. When styling, take vertical sections 2 finger width apart and angle the straighteners downward with the heated part at the bottom. 
  3. Place the straighteners at the root and and do a full turn. Glide the straightener down the section. If you want to create bigger, more relaxed waves keep the straightners close to your body.
  4. Apply some dry shampoo to add texture and create a beachy look.
  5. To finish off use a light oil on the ends.

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.
