4 Tips to Choosing the Best Stylist for Extension Installation
Posted on December 10 2015
While quality of your hair extensions is by and large the
most important factor in achieving a desired look, another important aspect is
the stylist you choose to install them. Remy Capillus extensions are an
investment; our Virgin Remy Indian Human hair comes with an unprecedented
12-month warranty, meaning it lasts many times longer than other leading
providers’ Remy extensions – therefore doubling the importance of an expert
touch during installation.
Our own designers, models and industry experts have contributed
their advice for the tips, below, on how to choose the best stylist to both
install and maintain your luxury hair extensions.
Word of mouth – and
visible results – are usually the best recommendations.
While Yelp is a great way to get a general idea of what
businesses offer, as well as ascertain their customers’ relative satisfaction
with the services provided, it usually doesn’t tell the whole story. If you
have the luxury of living near a well-known, five-star salon that routinely
receives glowing reviews, or you can easily travel to visit one, then the
suggestion of quality in the face of a review platform known for attracting
negativity should speak volumes about the location. However, if you’re not so
lucky, ask friends and acquaintances for recommendations, particularly if you
find yourself routinely admiring their hair. People are more likely to give a
fair assessment of a stylists’ talent in person than online.
Ensure that a salon’s
stylists are specially certified in and/or experienced with hair extensions.
Hair extension training is usually not included in basic cosmetology lessons. While upscale salons
will rarely, if ever, perform a service for which their stylists are not
experienced and certified, you should be careful to ensure that mid-range
salons possess a level of experience that you are comfortable with. Again,
viewing a portfolio of previous work to verify competence in this specific
arena of hair artistry can be helpful in ensuring quality of service. We highly
recommend investing in a high-end stylist at least for installation, if not
also maintenance, to avoid any worries about damaging your natural hair, scalp
or Remy Capillus extensions.
Find out about their
A salon that maintains a stellar reputation and the repeat
business of its clients will always offer to fix any extension installation
issues, if noted within a reasonable amount of time, for free or at a
drastically reduced cost. Inquire in advance about a salon’s policy on
remedying problems; chances are, if they will happily schedule you in for a
quick fix, they likely provide excellent quality care in the first place.
Ask for a stylist
uniquely suited to your needs.
Once you’ve found a highly-regarded salon that fits your
budget and that you trust to provide the services you require, call to inquire
about a stylist who has experience with any specific needs you may have. Older
individuals’ hair requires unique care, as does colored or otherwise
heavily-processed natural hair. Those with scalp issues may benefit from a
stylist who can perform a thorough scalp analysis and give advice or prescribe
treatment to alleviate any discomfort related to hair extensions.
We hope these tips could be of assistance in helping you
choose a stylist to work with your new Remy hair extensions. Good luck, and for
