So you want to get hair extensions? You’ll need to find a stylist to install them and maintain them for you. But you don’t want just any stylist--you want someone who is experienced, skilled, and in your price range.
One of the best ways to find a great stylist is through a recommendation. Ask a friend who has a similar hair type and style to yours and ask her who her stylist is. Ask someone who has had hair extensions who their stylist is.
As awesome as word of mouth may be, sometimes you don’t have that luxury. If you move to a new area or don’t trust any of your friends, try our Find a Stylist page here.
Usually, hair extension training is not included in a basic cosmetology license, so you can’t go to just anyone. The first thing to find out from a potential stylist is whether or not they are certified and have experience with hair extensions.
Before it comes time to pick a stylist, you want to make sure their services are going to be in your price range. Don’t be shy about asking for a general price quote. It can be tricky to get an exact price estimate without an in-person consultation, but you should be able to get a ballpark figure. (You can read more about what to expect about pricing here.)
There are thousands of highly qualified stylists out there, ready to make your hair extension experience worthwhile. You just need to find one that fits you!
