This week was an exciting one in the Vixen and Blush Shoreditch salon as we had a special visitor in the gorgeous form of self-confessed shopaholic and fashion blogger, Sarah Ashcroft. ‘That Pommie Girl’ – the name of her 2 year old blog, was born out of Sarah’s desire to show off her bulging wardrobe while she tried to make her way in fashion PR. Now, a fully established and widely read fashion bible for young women, ‘That Pommie Girl’ has become Sarah’s full-time job and what a job it is! Brands are queuing up to dress her and every follower of her blog wants to be her.
Quite rightly, a girl with a job like this has to look practically perfect at all times so where better to come for fabulous hair than Vixen and Blush. This was Sarah’s second visit to the salon after her first visit to us in October last year. On Sarah’s first visit to the Shoreditch salon she had 3/4 head of 20 inch extensions fitted (below) which gave her substantial length and volume increase. She looked beautiful!
This time round Sarah opted for a new look focusing on volume rather than length, therefore opting for 18 inches and a thicker, slightly more sophisticated look. We’re loving the new look!
Here’s Sarah with our Lauren Vixen and with her new look. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
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.
