Please read through our Frequently Asked Questions and get in touch with us if you have any further queries.
I am concerned about damage to my own hair - do hair extensions damage your hair??
We use the best quality material and our staff are very experienced hairdressers who specialise in hair extensions. We will maintain your hair throughout and provide you with all of the maintenance advice and follow up that you need to care for your new hair extensions. You are in safe hands.
Will I lose any of my own hair during the removal?
No matter which method you chose to have, your hair extensions will have been in place for a considerable amount of time. During that time, some of your individual hairs have shed, which is a natural process. These hairs have been held in place by the bonds and so at removal, these hairs will be released and will fall away. However, your hair will look exactly the same as it did prior to having your hair extensions fitted
What is different at your salon in terms of the removal process why is there no damage?
Damage from Hair Extensions occurs when DIY experiments take place, or when an inexperienced, under-qualified technician is involved. At Vixen & Blush, the removal process is as important as the fitting process. We take the time to do it right.
With the best professional products and qualified, experienced Hair Extensionists – damage should never ever be a problem.
Can I have a consultation and the hair extensions fitted on the same day?

We can help you decide, and even if you select a particular service, you can always change your mind during the fitting process.
Will the hair extensions be too heavy for my own hair?

Yes, you can. The hair at Vixen & Blush is of the highest quality and can be dyed in the same way as your own hair can.
