There is no getting around the fact that people strive to look younger and healthier. It gathers particular momentum with the upsurge in full, volumous balayage curls, fuller brows and lash extensions for the ladies. Meanwhile men’s grooming is at an all time high, with barber shops providing tend-setting skin fade with thick pompadours, slicked back hair, and hard parts with a long comb over. It’s no wonder then, that hair extensions are becoming a mainstream solution for fine, limp, thinning hair!
Gone are the days when hair extensions were only installed to provide length, in an hours long appointment that few could afford. Today’s extensions client’s include everyday clients looking for quick solutions to specific hair problems. Hair Extensions can even provide a cost effective solution to fill in the gaps of a bad haircut or the growing out phase to a new style.
With the versatility that hair extensions provides it is imperative to include this service to your behind the chair menu and watch your income skyrocket! Although extensions have become mainstream clients still want to keep it hidden that they are wearing extensions. Therefore skilled extension practitioners that can keep problem solving extensions invisible will see the largest gains in clients and revenue!
