Thanks to Pinterest you've created a vision board of your dream hair and next thing you know you've committed to hair extensions! OR you've seen your favorite celebrity and your hair envy is legit! I know this feeling well...
Hours later of Google searching and scrolling Instagram you've landed on a few hair extension artists that can make the magic happen!
Here are some quick tips for finding the stylist that's right for YOU!
Contact the salon(s) you are interested in working with. I suggest booking more than one consultation because it's important the you are selecting the right professional for the job. Especially since the internet is full of stolen and altered photos. You want to be certain that your homework leads you to the right place.
Things to ask
What is the history offering hair extensions as a service?
Certification Classes? Where did they receive education?
Does he/she offer more than one method?
Where is the hair from? Which part of the world was it collected?
Is this hair Remy?
How long will the service take and what is the maintenance?
If there is maintenance how often, how much and low long is the process?
Ask all your pricing questions so there are no surprises.
Are there photos for you to review their work?
Look closely at the before and after photos. I've seen some pretty impressive "filtered images" and stolen photos.
How does the stylist make you feel? Did you get an instant feeling that the correct method was selected for you? Do you feel at ease with your decision to have extensions? These emotions are very real and you'll want to be 100% confident that you've selected the right person for the job! After all, it's an investment, commitment, and a relationship. It should be FUN and EXCITING!
Once you've found your perfect person, try and sit back and relax! You've got to enjoy the process and trust along the way.
