We are so excited to announce that our extensions are now available outside of Vancouver. It's even more exciting that our first salon partnership is in Janelle's hometown, Edmonton!
Both our semi-permanent and clip in extensions are now available at Salon Blunt in downtown Edmonton. Their team of stylists completed our 2 day workshop and their extension installs on day 2 looked absolutely incredible. Check out the models below:
For all extensions appointments at Blunt, consultations are required. A consultation takes 15-30 minutes and allows the stylist to explain the method to you, determine if its suitable for your hair and lifestyle, and allows them to give you an accurate pricing estimate. You can book your consultation by emailing them here.
Once you and your stylist have determined that our extensions will work for you, you'll do a colour match and discuss the amount of hair required and length. Our extensions come in 2 lengths: 16" and 20". If your hair is shoulder length and you just want some volume or a bit of length, you'll be best suited to 16". If you want some epic mermaid hair, you'll be going for the 20"!
For the amount of hair, we go by 3 volumes: 1/2 head, 3/4 head and full head. This is the weight of hair that will be installed to achieve your desired results. Your stylist will determine this based on your natural hair length and volume. Most clients can achieve their goals with a 3/4 head but there are always multiple variables at play. Here are some examples:
- You have short, thick, blunt hair and want long hair to the base of your ribs - Full head, 20"
- You have shoulder length, fine hair and you just want volume - 1/2 head, 16"
- You have longish, average thickness hair but want more length - 3/4 head, 20" hair
When it comes to colour, you'll want to be at your desired shade before the extensions are installed. If you're on a journey to blonde, wait until you get there before being colour matched. It's easy to tone extensions, but we don't recommend lightening them as it can compromise the integrity of the hair. We want your investment in our premium hair to last!
Once you have picked a length and settled on a colour, you will pay for the hair and book your install appointment. Let the fun begin!
On the day of your installation appointment you should arrive with clean, dry hair. Your stylist will measure each row and place them strategically based on your haircut, volume, density and styling preferences.
The extensions will then be cut to blend seamlessly into your natural hair and styled so you can hit the town! During the install your stylist will give you the aftercare document so you can ask any questions you may have as you read through it.
Every 5-7 weeks you will pop back into the salon for your maintenance appointment. Depending on the volume of hair, your appointment can take anywhere from 45 to 75 minutes. Your stylist will remove each row and reapply the extensions on new hair. You should arrive with clean, dry hair for the best application.
Salon Blunt is offering special pricing on extensions for appointments booked before October 31. They also offer Sezzle payment plans on all hair extension services. Check them out on Instagram and book in your consultation today! [Extensions above by Brianna]
We've had requests from cities across the country to offer our method and hair, so this is just the start of our new journey and we couldn't be more thrilled to have your support. Let us know if you want to see us in your city and you might just see us there next!
