Hair Extension Prices. Why are hair extensions so expensive?

This is an old post from a few weeks ago, but I try to constantly re-post anything about pricing just because it is a very frequent question that I receive during phone calls.

So the main question I get when people call in to inquire about extensions is…”How much do you charge?” My pricing is based on how many years of experience I have had as well as the amount of clients I serve. I know its sometimes hard to understand why anyone could charge so much for hair…however, Its taken me my whole career to get to this price point that I am at. This is also my main focus. Yes I also do cuts and colors, but the majority of my clientele all have extensions. I can promise that you will get an amazing experience with me and will be very happy with your extensions. I do not do extensions on someone if I do not think their hair will support them and ALSO if I think they will not look good, I will tell you! Because this is my main focus, I do not “need” new clients… This also allows for me to be honest with you about your hair. I want you to  be just as good as a fit for me as I am for you! This leads to the consultation. I do require all clients be seen prior to getting extensions. We sit down and talk about why you want extensions and get more in depth about the process of getting your new hair. I have found it is very hard to quote prices without seeing you in person. However the range of pricing is between $900 (at the lowest) and $2000 (at the highest). One thing I do offer that other stylist do not offer is a price up front. The reason for this is, you will be able to plan accordingly when you know exactly what you will be paying on the day you get your extensions. Most stylist go by the hour. My prices are based on hourly price, but once I give you a quote, I will never go over that price. 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 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… I keep my prices lower than other stylist in the area and welcome clients from other states. I will give EVERYONE a great deal!

I honestly think price should be the last thing on how you choose your extension artist. Extensions is so much more than…just adding some hair. Its all in the placement, the parting, the amount of hair, the care of them… and the list goes on. I am very good at what I do, and I think my pictures speak for themselves.

My prices range from $900-$2000. This price includes your color, application, cut and style.
