The Hair Extension Process
the step-by-step walkthrough of the hair extension application process at Crown
This is by far the most important step in the whole extension process
It’s very important that we get to see your hair in person, in it’s natural state. This way we can determine a few very important things:
- If you are a good candidate for hair extensions based on the length of your existing hair, health, and density.
- What method would be best for you based on the density of your hair.
- What colors we need to blend to give you your perfect match.
It’s also the perfect time for us to discuss maintenance, at home care, and of course, price.
This is the best time to get every single hair extension question you can think of out on the table.
If you decide hair extensions are right for you, then on to step 2!
It is important to us that we help you understand the financial commitment of hair extensions so you can be fully prepared.
Before we are able to schedule your extension appointment, a deposit will be required. We do this for two reasons: Firstly, because we often need to order your hair for you before your hair appointment. Secondly, we will need to set aside a significant amount of time aside for your extension appointment and this time must be secured with a deposit.
We may also discuss the possibility of signing you up for our extension membership which can save you money, give you incredible perks and can be canceled at anytime.
When you arrive for your appointment we hope you are excited — it’s extension day!
Don’t worry about coming with clean hair — we will wash it and dry it for you to ensure we have a completely clean surface before starting. Your hair will also most likely be out and ready for you. At this point, your extensionista will go over any last minute questions you may have and recap what you discussed during your consultation.
Before we get started, we will likely ask for your permission to take a “before” photo.
We do this because it’s so fun for you to see the results side by side — and we love to share them to our social media pages. If you don’t feel comfortable taking photos that’s totally fine! It’s completely optional.
After your hair has been shampooed and blown out, we are ready for the next step!
Before beginning your application we will show you your new extensions and confirm one last time that they are a color match. Then we will give your hair a cleansing wash and condition and blow it out smooth.
Your extensions will be applied while paying special attention to your comfort and ensuring placement is discreet. You may have more than one extensionista taking care of you to ensure that your service is fast and efficient.
Once your extensions are in but are not yet blended, you might be wondering what you got yourself into.
Your new hair extensions don’t look quite right. Don’t worry — we are just about to get to the most technical (and vital) step in making your extensions look like your own: the blending.
Our signature blending haircut will ensure that your new extensions blend seamlessly into your natural hair, with proper styling of course!
You may love your hair in a more natural state after your blending, but it’s also fun to try something new.
Your Crown extensionista will offer to do something a little extra special with your styling and teach you how to use a curling wand, flat iron, curling iron or hot rollers to style your new extensions while recommending the best products to take care of your extensions.
If we got before photos, we definitely need to get some cute afters!
Have fun, be yourself, and let us snap some photos of your gorgeous new extensions!
