Hello All! I have been away for some time as life at Verde with two locations has been a little crazy (completely in a great way!) and required my complete focus. So I’ve asked one of our newer stylists to guest blog today on a subject that is near and dear to her heart. Passionate about hair extensions, she has worked to grow this aspect of her business and will be heading out in May to become certified in a method taught by a rockin stylist in California who created the Natural Beaded Rows Hair Extensions Method (NBR) and will be prebooking her clients for her return! She is currently certified as a Dream Catcher Specialist, but as many of you know, we believe in continuing education and learning at Verde and she is following that dream! Here is our lovely April Wade to answer a few questions and share her knowledge…
Do you struggle with wanting to have thicker, fuller, more glamorous hair? Would you love to have the instant gratification of instantly longer hair? At Verde Salon, Extensions are the answer and we can make these goals come to life. As the Extension Specialist here at Verde Salon & Spa, I have found my niche and passion in helping clients achieve goals that are just unrealistic with their own hair. I like to call it making dreams happen! Some of the guests I see have came to me worried because the method used is making their hair thinner or causing breakage. Yes, this can happen as not all hairstylists performing extensions have been trained extensively or properly . When you make the decision to get extensions, make sure your stylist has been certified in the method she’s choosing for your hair. Being a licensed hair dresser isn’t enough training for extensions as extensions require many hours of additional education.
With that being said there are several types of different methods used for extensions. Tape ins, individual beads, halo, and weft extensions. I am certified with Dream Catcher for Tape ins, and beads. As of May 10th I will be certified in NBR Weft Extensions! I am extremely excited to bring this new technique to Verde and have begun scheduling appointments for this revolutionary technique.
A consultation is always necessary when getting extensions as each persons hair is different. I need to asses your hair before the service to chose what method is best for your hair type to avoid any issues such as breakage and/or hair loss. You can book your mandatory 15 minute consultation with our receptionist (480) 718-5355.
At the time of the consult, we will discuss your hair goals, whether adding length, volume or thickness, color goals, and the method to achieve these goals. We will also go over maintenance in order to adequately take care of your new beautiful hair. We will make a game plan and schedule your appointment for the big day!
Some common questions I get are:
Can I still color my hair?
Yes you can, your hair and your extension hair can be colored to create the perfect look and color match.
Can I still put my hair up?
Yes you can, each guest has personalized placement based on head shape to make sure they will be hidden when you hair is up.
How long do they last?
Usually every 6-8 weeks they will need to be moved up for maintenance to make sure there is not too much tension between your hair and the extension hair. This will be discussed in detail at the time of your consult.
Do they hurt?
No if they are placed in your hair secure and right this should be comfortable.
Pricing will be discussed during your consult. It varies depending on the method used and the amount of hair required.
Are you getting excited? I know I am! Come see me at Verde Salon & Spa so we can achieve your Dream hair! (480) 718- 5355
I hope this has helped to inspire you to chase the dream of long, gorgous hair and I’d love to meet with you to discuss the possibilities!
