About Hair extensions (Everything in a nutshell)
So I recieved this comment on my blog the other day that caught my attention after blogging about doing Hair Extensions in the salon… and it made me smile …
“I’m glad that I have full thick hair and don’t need extensions.
Sometimes having lots of super thick hair is a pain in the butt,
but I just can’t ever imagine paying so much for some hair extensions.”
I can tell you exactly why she feels this way… and she even says it. Its because she already has thick, healthy hair. Over 3/4 of my clientele has really fine hair that just wont grow, or has had some severe damage to their hair due to over processing or colors on top of colors… Therefore giving them the reason to REALLY NEED hair extensions. In this case, I know I would pay ANYTHING to have great hair…especially if I am physically not able to grow it myself! Of course, all of you that have met me are thinking,”how does she know this??? She has really great hair already!” I know this because I have not always had good hair and needed extensions to help me grow my own hair out Extensions gave me the confidence I needed to get through the really rough stage of growing my hair out, and also making me feel amazing about myself! To a woman, hair is everything!!! If you wake up and have a really bad hair day, it will ruin your whole day… I know a lot of you are shaking your heads thinking,”that is SO true!” It really is the truth! Thats the part about my job that I just LOVE!!! I love to give that extra confidence to a woman that has never experienced a GREAT hair day! Not only that, but being able to do it day after day looking great all the time. That is something that if you already have “good” hair, you will NEVER be able to understand.
And then… there is the price. After what I just said, I would pay anything to have great hair every single day! Even though some think my price is too high, or “outrageous”… I am much, much lower than our surrounding cities. I also plan on staying in the price bracket I am for as long as I possibly can! I had someone tell me the other day…”Your prices are much too high since I know the cost of the hair. You are way over-charging” The only thing I have to say to that is…Do you walk into Ruth’s Chris steak house and demand to know why their steaks are $60 when Bilo sells them for $10 each??? No, you GO to Ruth’s Chris for the experience you will get, The training the chef has (even though you never see him, he is the reason the food is so amazing) the service you will receive and the pampering you feel while doing it. THAT is the reason my prices are what they are. I am not for everyone, and I am OK with that… With that being said, (big smile…) Here are 2 amazing women that I had this week.
One of the biggest questions I get so often is… Can extensions damage your hair? YES they CAN!!! I will be the firs to tell you that you cannot just go to anyone to get extensions done and expect that your experience and your hair are in good hands! I CAN however tell you that I do not just throw some extensions in your hair and send you out the door! Kristen and I are very educated and spend a LOT of time educating you and teaching you how to care for your new hair. There isn’t much to it, but a few wrong steps, and you are heading in the wrong direction and your hair can damage fast! This photo is from a girl that got them done in New York and the stylist told her it was fine to just come every 4 months to get a new set! First of all, anyone that tells you that your extensions will last you 4 months is lying! And second, look at how much tangling is there… who would EVER want to go through that? WE have a solution to this problem!!! WE want your hair to be healthier than when you initially got your extensions, and continue down the path of GREAT, HEALTHY HAIR!
Dont forget about our October “save the tata tata’s” Donations! Every product sold and every PINK hair extensions sold… all the proceeds go to local women in Greenville! Thank you for those that have already supported!
Oh, and I cannot wait to share with everyone the upcoming news for HBA and the changes that will be coming our way… GREAT CHANGES!
