Benefits of offering professional hair extensions 

Before we explore the benefits of each professional method, let’s get down to business. Aside from the fact that you can expand your clientele with extensions, you can make more money. Here are suggestions to bring more mula while still serving up the styles. 


How to charge your clients when installing hair extensions


  1. Charge your client by service depending on the cost of extensions. For example, if your client requires $300 worth of hair extensions, your service fee should be $300.
  2. Charge a flat rate for your service. Instead of pricing your clients from the amount of hair required for install, charge an established flat rate, similar to hair coloring.  
  3. Charge by the hour. Some methods take longer than others, so if you’re charging by the hour, make sure it’s worth your time.

DB Pro Tip: Research pricing in your area so you can best set your fees. You don’t want to over or under-charge your clients.


It’s no secret that professional hair extension services can boost your clientele, but becoming an expert in all methods can really make you standout as a stylist! You can transform a wider variety of hair types and meet more needs to your clients with extension certification under your belt. Keep reading for the benefits of Donna Bella Hair’s professional methods.
