How to style Hair Extensions

Ideas on How to style Hair Extensions from Vixen & Blush…

Tip 1 – Start with good-quality hair extensions!  

Your hair extensions should be a perfect colour match, should be discreet and comfortable, should be cut into a style that suits you, and is easy to maintain.

Tip 2 – Always blow-dry your hair 

Blowdrying your hair extensions means that they will marry with your own hair and look completely natural.

Tip 3 – Invest in good-quality tools

We recommend using GHD hair straighteners to our clients for straightening and for curling and making waves!

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.
