Your Mane Mission - How to Find a Good Hair Extension Stylist

So, you're on a mission because you've finally decided to take the plunge and invest in some high-quality tape hair extensions or genius weft hair extensions (like Medusa’s, for instance—wink!). 

The next step is equally crucial: finding a stylist who can bring your hair dreams to life. Trusting someone with your locks is a big deal, so here’s what you need to know to find a stylist that makes you feel like all that sitting still was worth it!

But First: Why Tape Hair Extensions?

Tape hair extensions are a great solution for anyone looking for non-committal colour or a temporary length change, but they're also designed to flawlessly blend into your natural hair. As the name suggests, these extensions are made of pre-taped wefts, secured with a medical-grade adhesive, that get taped in between your natural hair using sandwich-like bonds. 

Reusable tape hair extensions are a great value option if you're a little indecisive because they allow you to change your hair on a whim. You can head to our shop to find 16-inch, 20-inch and 24-inch tape in hair extensions in a range of natural colours that blend seamlessly into your hair, giving you extra fullness and length whenever you need it. 

Now, down to the mane business of this post - how to find a good stylist to apply these babies. Read on.

Experience: The More, The Better

Let's face it—experience counts for a lot. You don't want someone using your head as a practice canvas. An experienced stylist has handled different hair types, textures, and extension methods. From fine hair or thin hair to thick, curly, unruly or an easily tangled head of natural hair, they know the nuances and can recommend the best course of action for your specific needs.

Training: Get the Credentials

Did you know there's specialised training for applying hair extensions? Yep, it's a thing! Check for certificates or accreditations that prove the stylist has received formal training in applying the kind of extensions you’re interested in like tape ins perhaps. This shows they are not only qualified but committed to their craft.

Customer Service: Because You're the Queen

You're entrusting someone with your crown (your hair, obvi), so you should feel like royalty from the moment you step into a professional salon. Look for a professional stylist who listens to your needs, recommends appropriate options, and doesn’t rush through the consultation or the application. A stylist that offers a follow-up or maintenance service is a keeper.

Reviews and Recommendations: Word of Mouth Still Rules

Reviews can tell you a lot about a salon or stylist. Sure, one or two negative reviews might be a fluke, but a consistent record of happy customers speaks volumes. Also, don’t underestimate the power of a good ol' personal recommendation. Ask friends or family who sport amazing human hair extensions where they got their tape ins done.
