Summer holiday hair extensions

The number one question on every client’s list this time of year is “Can I go on holiday with hair extensions in?” The answer is of-course, Yes. 

Having nice hair on holiday can be the difference between being a frizzy mess or a golden goddess. Hair extensions are most definitely the way to go.

During the day, if you are going away to a hot country and will be in and out of swimming pools, we advise you to put your hair into a low ponytail or plait. Once out of the water, release your hair from the pony/plait and let the sun dry your hair. Please avoid wearing a hat as your hair needs to dry as soon as possible. Rinse any chlorine or sea water out of your hair to prevent discoloration. Do not leave your hair in a bun all day.

Of an evening, give your hair a good wash (take a clarifying shampoo along with you for this) and then dry and heat style just as you would at home.

Story of the day.. I once was made to go through the full body scanner at airport security because my micro-rings set off the sensor. This is a true, and hilarious story. Hair extensions may as-well be alien to men, the security guard could not stop laughing once I explained. 

Aside from that, there isn’t really a downside to going away with hair extensions in.

An alternative is clip-in hair extensions. 

For anyone who isn’t too bothered about their hair during the day, but may want a boost of an evening, our clip-in hair extensions are PERFECT.

They are made with exactly the same hair used for our permanent hair extensions, so you wouldn’t need to compromise on quality at all. You’ll still be able to achieve the same flawless, natural look, but just pop them in and out as you please.

If you have any questions or want some more information, these is lots available on our website.

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.
