Selecting a really great hairdresser to apply your extensions is key to getting gorgeous, flawless long locks.
Here are the four most important factors to consider when you’re researching to find the best hairdresser to apply your hair extensions for you:
- Select a salon with hairdressers that are qualified and experienced in hair and hair health
Applying extensions is a tricky business, and you’ll want a professional that knows about hair. Each extension needs to be carefully attached to just the right amount of hair on your head to carry the weight of the extension until the next maintenance appointment. If this is done incorrectly, there’s a risk of the hair being pulled out and you’re left with breakage, thinning, and bald spots.
- Ensure the hairdressers are qualified and experienced in the area of hair extensions
Just because a hairdresser is great at hair, and has years of experience, doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve got much experience in applying hair extensions. If you want your hair extensions to look amazing, optimize your hair and scalp health, and be able to wear all sorts of hairstyles such as ponytails without worrying, pick somebody who has adequate, specialised experience.
- Pick somebody that is experienced in applying different kinds of hair extensions
We can help you pick the right kind of extension for your needs right here, but it never hurts to get a second opinion from a professional. If your hairdresser only specialises in one or two different types of application and only caters for one type of hair texture, you might be better off finding somebody who’s more experienced, with a wider range of hair and extension types to help you choose the right fit that’s best suited to your needs.
- Pick a salon that has experience in colouring
After choosing the colour that’s the closest match to your own, you may still need to tweak it a little to get it to blend in perfectly, so you’ll want somebody who’s really great at colour matching and working with different kinds of dyes. If this isn’t done correctly it can make your hair look uneven, unnatural, and you will be able to see the extensions peeking through, and below your real hair.
