In this market, you have to be competitive, constantly thinking of ways to be ahead of the game. One mistake you can make as a stylist is overlooking the method of Clip-Ins. Why? Because it’s the fastest growing method of hair extensions. A lot of women are finding they don’t have the time to sit in a chair for a full installation of extensions, or they don’t want the commitment that comes with the maintenance of Tape-Ins, Kera-Links, or I-Links. Clip-Ins will be the easiest money making method of hair extensions for you. Sure, there are a lot of hair extension companies that offer Clip-Ins, but there are very few stylists that offer Clip-In services. Here are some small and simple ways you can grow your income and clientele with this growing trend. Check them out!
Customize. While each set of Clip-Ins are made the same, each client isn’t the same. This is where you, as the stylist, come in. It’s hard for a client to find her exact match of hair; sometimes you can come really close, but not the same. Offer to order and custom color her Donna Bella hair extensions to her exact match. Before you offer this service, make sure you’ve played with color on our hair extensions. Some color formulas make our hair extensions react differently, so make sure you always do a test strand and follow our coloring rule: always deposit, never lift. A lot of stylists have clients who play with colors #600 and #1001 to deposit color, especially for an ombre custom color job.
Blend. A full set of Clip-Ins is made to be “one size fits all”, however, each one of our clients has a different texture of hair, head size, and some have more hair than others. Offer to install their Clips-Ins and customize them to fit them specifically by blending them in. Remind them to choose a method for putting the hair away in order, so that they know which row goes where when placing them back on their head. A custom blend is always necessary for any type of hair extension anyway right?
Special occasions. Bridals, quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, weddings, and any other special occasion share one common question: “How am I doing my hair?” This is probably the most popular Clip-In service because women want that one-night glam, but they also want to be able to go back to normal as soon as it’s over. If you’ve ever worked with our Human Hair Clip-Ins you know they are super easy to work with and can be styled any which way, even with heat.
Hopefully these will give you some more Clip-In ideas. And as always, we love to hear your questions and concerns, so drop them below!
