Red hair is having a moment – here’s how to nail it!
Red hair is a great way to add some boldness and vibrancy to your look. It’s a colour that needs to be properly taken care of to ensure no fading or damage but that can be easily achieved with the right maintenance routine.
At Vixen and Blush we specialise in hair extensions and ask that you come to us with a colour that you are 100% happy with. If your looking for a great colour salon we are lucky enough to have Samantha Cusick London right next door. This means it’s super easy for you to organise your appointments between the 2 salons and have your hair coloured and extensions fitted in the same day.
This look was achieved with Micro Ring hair extensions, they are a very popular method in the salon as they are a permanent method which lasts for 3 months and then can be re fitted.
This gorgeous client came in for a consultation and we created a custom colour blend to match her red hair. This client has a ¾ head of Micro Rings in 22” to create this voluminous transformation.
The Micro Ring appointment includes a wash and blow dry of your own hair, custom colour match by our expert team and fitting of the extensions. We will then cut and blend your extensions and finish off the look with styling of your choice whether that’s super glossy and sleek or a beachy wave. Visit our website to see the price list for Micro Ring hair extensions.
Are Micro Ring hair extensions comfortable to wear?
Micro Ring hair extensions are one of the most popular methods in the salon! If it’s your first-time having Micro Ring hair extensions fitted it can take you a day or two to get used to the feeling of them. The first time you go to sleep wearing permanent hair extensions can feel uncomfortable, but the feeling quickly goes away within a few days.
The most effective way to figure out if they will be comfortable for you is to have a test piece fitted at your consultation and to then wear them for a week and wash and treat the extension as you would your own hair.
What shade of red should I have?
We have seen a resurgence of interest in red hair, particularly in the form of vibrant and bold shades like copper and auburn. The trend has been popularized by the likes of Kendal Jenner who switched up her brunette locks for an auburn hue. As there are so many different shades to choose from you can find the perfect red to complement your skin tone and personal style, talk to your colourist to find the perfect shade. If you are in need of a little inspiration head over to our Pinterest page to see some of our gorgeous red transformations that have been created in the salon.
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.
