Vixen and Blush Experience

So you’ve taken the first big step, and decided that you want hair extensions. Exciting!

Now you’re feeling a little bit deflated because you’ve read a million reviews for one hundred different salons, and have no idea where to go, what to ask for, and what on earth the difference is between Cold Fusion, Micro Bonded, Pre Bonded, Rings, Tape, and magically applied by fairies extensions.

We’ve got you covered.

The Consultation

The first thing you can do, is come in to one of our two London salons for a consultation. This appointment is free of charge, and will involve you sitting down with a senior stylist for a general chat about hair extensions, to answer all of your questions and let you know exactly what we can do for you. Many first time clients find this part the most useful. Our girls are no nonsense, we won’t bog you down with terminology, or give you false pretences. Honest, experienced advice from one of our lovely lot should set you on the right path!

If all goes well (which it will, we’re lovely, honest!) you can go ahead and book in for your fitting appointment before you leave. If you’d like to go away and have a think about it, you’ll still be leaving the salon full of wisdom and feeling super confident that you’ve chosen the right place.

Hair Extensions Salon London

The First Fitting

A large percentage of our clients will have had hair extensions elsewhere, either a very long time ago, or are coming to us to rectify work that wasn’t done very well. One of the main things we excel in is our colour matching technique. When you sit in the chair, we will gather as many colours as it takes and blend blend blend until we have hair that matches the colour of yours exactly. Our hair is never premade, this will happen on the spot in-front of your eyes. So if there’s something you don’t like, we can change it until it’s perfect for you!

Your fitting will take between 2-4 hours. Making hair look beautiful is a long process, but oh so worth it. There will be lots of chit-chat, music, and and endless supply of hot drinks, or a cheeky glass of wine or two to keep you going! We do of-course have wi-fi, so feel free to bring a laptop or ipad/tablet along with you for the day.

Once all of your hair is fitted, we’ll ask you to have a feel around to make sure everything is comfortable or if any strands needs adjusting for you. Once you’re happy, we’ll cut the hair extensions in. This part is so important! The key to flawless hair extensions is in the cut and blend, the last thing you need is a harsh line where your natural hair ends and your hair extensions start, so we’ll make sure we get your hair looking super natural.

You’ll finish off with a gorgeous style; straight, wavy, curly, your choice! And if you’d like, we’ll take some gorgeous snaps to feature on our social media before you head out. You’ll leave on the day with a full maintenance guide with lots of tips for caring for your new hair – but if you have any questions or want to pop by, we offer check-ups!

Brunette Transformation From Vixen & Blush Hair Extensions LondonReviews

Don’t take our word for it, have a look at what some of our clients have had to say!

“Awesome friendly girls with great knowledge. I’ve been there 3 times and each time I come home loving how realistic and natural my 3/4 head looks’

“Absolutely in love with my hair! Service was amazing and no one can tell I have hair extensions in. I’ll definitely be back again :)”

“The whole procedure and pricing was explained very carefully. I was given plenty of aftercare advice and my experience in the salon was very comfortable.”

“Absolutely amazing service. The best hair extensions around totally unnoticeable. Staff are friendly and polite and make you feel completely at home, while offering the best advice”

“Excellent service, excellent team”

“I’ve been having my hair extensions done with Vixen and Blush for over 2 years now, and have loved them from the first time had them done. When people compliment me on my hair they never even guess I have Extensions in-fact they are shocked as they are so natural. My hair is very fine, so I have them for thickness. Sarah and Danielle have both done my hair, and they both provide great service. I’ve had my Extensions done at other salons and Vixen and Blush for me have given me the best service and results”

“The service of the salon is fantastic and very professional. I am always pleased with my hair after it’s done. However, my only comment is the staff needs to be trained more with dealing with all sorts of hair including curly hair. My hair is very curly but not coarse curly. And when I am there I see the panic in the staff dealing with my hair. Most of them seems to be unable to handle curly hair. Which can be quite stressing to clients. I have to go quite often to get my hair keratin straighten in order to make it easier for them. If the staff get trained on dealing with all sorts of hair the services of the salon will be perfect”

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.
