Hair Extension Salons : The Perfect Extension Consultation

When researching hair extension salons you will find a lot of salons that do hair extensions. The problem is that most of these “extension salons” really don’t know what they are doing.

I have worked with hair extensions for almost 15 years and own a very successful hair extension salon in Dallas TX called The Beauty Box. We sell lots and lots of hair extensions. Our reviews are some of the best in the industry. We know hair extensions at The Beauty Box.

I have a formula that I follow when new clients come into the salon looking for hair extensions. Our hair extension consultation is so good that 8 out of 10 people end up getting hair extensions with us. I decided to share this hair extension consultation with you so you can make better decisions when researching your own hair extension salon.

The hair extension videos attached to this blog post offer a detailed look into the perfect hair extension consultation. I had one of my best hair extension stylists, Sonia Isaguirre, play the part of the new hair extension client.

Top 10 Essential Steps for the Perfect Hair Extension Consultation

1. Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Extensions: At my salon we give you a detailed sheed that goes over some of the most frequently asked questions about hair extensions. This really helps set the tone for the entire hair extension consultation. Many of your questions should be answered after reading this.

2. Hair Extension Questionnaire: It is important for a good hair extension salon to gather important information about you.  Your lifestyle, color history, recent surgeries, how active you are and your expectations all play a factor in choosing the right hair extension system.

3. Having a Clear Upfront Understanding: At this point your hair extension expert will evaluate the information on your hair extension questionnaire. This information will determine the next steps in presenting the hair extension systems right for you.

4. Presentation of Hair Extension Products: I like a very hands on approach when it comes to hair extension consultations. I like to take this time to give the client a tour of all the products we provide so they can make an educated decision. 

5.  Hair Extension Evaluation: After I've presented the various types hair extensions systems I like to discuss the pros and cons for each in relation to the cleint's needs and lifestyle. This is also a time to answer any of the clients questions about the different types of application systems. 

6. The Cost of Hair Extensions: Being up front is very important. I try to give up front pricing when I can. This depends upon the complexity of the hair extension system. If I can’t break the hair extension systems down into an easy to understand pricing structure then I will at least give a broad idea of how much the hair extensions will cost.

Any salon that is vague and not upfront is usually an indicator that they don’t know what they are doing.

7. The Hair Extension Color Match: I will take the color ring and begin the color match process. Many times my clients question the color match. It is not uncommon for you to perceive your hair color in a different way.. Lighting is everything and things often look different away from your head.

One of the guarantees we make at my salon is that if we choose the wrong color for a client we will make it right. This is very rare but our clients appreciate the security that as a salon we are going to make sure that it is right.

8. Signing of Hair Extension Contract: Once all the details are sorted I log all the information and present my clients with a contract to sign. This makes sure that my client and I have a very clear understanding of all their hair extension application.

One thing I try to make very clear is that as a salon we guarantee the workmanship and quality of the hair extensions. What I don’t guarantee is that my client will actually like hair extensions. I believe in honesty and integrity and want to be up-front with everything. The reality is that some people do not like hair extensions.

9. Booking of Your Hair Extension Appointment and Deposit: It is a common practice for hair extension salons to charge a deposit when booking an appointment. This makes sure that you are serious about getting hair extensions. Many hair extension systems cost the salon up front to order hair and usually there is pretty large time commitment.

10. Care and Hair Extension Products: I will go over the recommended hair extension products and their daily hair extension care regimen. This is something you need to consider in the cost of your hair extensions. It is absolutely essential that you buy the recommended products to make sure your hair extensions look amazing the whole time you wear them.

I know this seems like a lot, however, all these points are absolutely essential. A good hair extension salon understands this and will always go through a version of these steps.

Take a minute to watch my hair extension consultation video. I try to keep it light and fun. Knowledge is power and hair extensions are amazing when done properly.
