Sarah McKenna

Founder of vixen & blush and the london hair lab

Sarah graduated in 2005 from University College Dublin with a BSc(Hons) in biochemistry and an undergraduate award for research. A career in the pharmaceutical industry in the areas of oncology and diabetes was a natural next step and Sarah worked for 6 years in these fascinating fields of science. However, during this time Sarah discovered a passion for hair extensions. She began to employ her research and development skills in this specialist area of hairdressing and spent 3 years finding a reliable and high-quality source of human hair, before finally opening Vixen & Blush as a one chair salon in 2012.

Armed with this superior quality hair, direct from her suppliers, Sarah was able to offer a more competitive price for expert hair extensions services and the salon grew rapidly through word of mouth.

In 2018 The London Hair Lab was founded as a wholesale hair company so that Sarah could supply hair and training to high-end salons across the UK and the USA, while continuing to grow Vixen & Blush as a leading hair extensions specialist salon in London.

Sarah continues to strive for perfection and wants to provide the safest most discreet and wearable hair extensions for all.

Danielle is now the head trainer for Vixen & Blush and holds HABIA certification.
