Why did you want to get into the beauty industry?

I always wanted to be in the hair industry, lots of my family are in the industry so I always got a close look at what it was like. Going on photoshoots was what made me really want to get into hair extensions, my first photoshoot experience was at 14, I went with my aunt to a shoot for a calendar. I got to see first-hand what hair extensions can do!

What do you love about the industry?

I love how fast moving the industry is, there’s always something new to learn. You’ve never learnt it all!

Can you share a memorable experience or client transformation that stands out to you?

I had a client who had always thought about getting extensions but never did because she didn’t think we could do anything to help her. It was her daughter’s wedding, and she finally came in to see us for a consultation, I fitted a test piece and reassured her that we could achieve what she was looking for. When her appointment came, she loved her hair and was so happy, she said she wished she would’ve come years ago! It makes me so happy to get reactions like that.

What trend do you think will be the next big Instagram hit?

I hope to see more hair accessories, bows have been popular recently and I think this could open the door to other accessories. Highlight braids could also be big this summer.

Who is your hair icon?

I love to see what Hailey Bieber is doing with her hair, she’s always changing up her colour.

What is your top tip for a good hair care routine at home?

When washing your hair set time to do all your products and dry and style in one go, this will help to set it all. Hair extensions hold a curl really well, I find when I do this my curl will last a few days

How do you ensure that clients feel comfortable and confident during their appointment?

Giving a really thorough consultation first to make sure I understand what they want and that its achievable and then making sure the extensions are feeling comfortable as we go. I also love to ask my clients if they have an inspiration picture for the end styling!

What would you recommend to people who are thinking about getting extensions?

Come in for a consultation and a test piece! A good consultation is key to any hair extensions journey, making sure what you want is achievable and that the maintenance will fit with your lifestyle is the first step.

What is your top tip for great hair?

Always blow dry your hair, it is in its most fragile state when its wet.

They key to healthy voluminous hair lies in a free consultation. Book in for your free consultation with Brodie today. If you need a little more inspiration head over to our Instagram page, just click on her highlights to see all the amazing transformations she has created at Vixen & Blush.

 

Sarah Mckenna
Founder

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.
