What do you recommend for someone looking to get started with extensions?
I always recommend guest to do their research when looking into getting extensions. Don’t rush the process, take your time to do your research. Don’t just pick the cheapest, or the most expensive, cost doesn’t mean anything! A few things to consider when searching for your stylist:
– They show their work of the install and grow out.
– They have guest testimonials.
– They can answer your questions without any hesitation.
– Their prices work with your beauty budget.
– They work with the color palette you’re trying to achieve.
– They continue their education for extensions.
