I-Tip/ Micro Ring extensions are a very popular permanent method at Vixen and Blush

It’s a permanent method with a wear time of 3 months, it’s the perfect method if you are looking for a re-usable method that doesn’t use any heat or glue.

The hair comes in tipped st

rands called I-Tips. At Vixen and Blush all our hair comes from The London Hair Lab. Our very own in-house lab which has a large inventory of hair in multi tonal shades.

A perfect colour and texture match is easily achieved, and the hair is expertly fitted by our experience team of stylists whose focus is on achieving natural looking results for every client.

How are they fitted?

I-Tip/ Micro Ring extensions are fitted with a tiny metal micro ring. We have 3 different sizes of ring on offer, depending on the density of your own hair at the root. A precise section of your hair is threaded through the ring and a strand of extension hair is added alongside your hair. The micro ring is then clamped closed and is in place for 12 weeks.

The fitting and removal are very safe, easy, and clean with no chemicals used.

How are they removed?

You simply open the metal micro ring to release the strand, which can subsequently be refitted. Micro Ring extensions can be re-used many times making this method an affordable way of wearing hair extensions in the long term.

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.
