To choose a good hair extensions salon, you should seek referrals from people who have hair extensions, ask the salon about its experience in providing hair extensions, and ask to see the extensions before you commit to using the salon's services. In many cases, a salon will have a hair extension specialist on staff, and you should ask for consultation with her in order to determine whether you wish to work with her. Getting hair extensions can be an expensive and time-consuming process, so doing research on a salon and its hairdressers can save you a lot of time and money.

If you are considering getting professional hair extensions, begin asking people you know if they can recommend a good hair extensions salon. If you know someone with hair extensions and like the way they look, ask that person if she can give you the name of her hair extension hairdresser. You may also want to look at various online city guides for salon recommendations. It may be a good idea to make an appointment to just visit the salon and have a look at its selection of hair extensions as well as photographs of its work before committing to working with that salon.


During your visit, be sure to ask about costs and what a typical client usually pays for the type of hair extensions that you want. Be aware that you may also need to pay for hair cutting, styling, as well as hair color for both your own hair and the extensions. These charges can add up, so ask if the hair extensions salon has any packages or first-time client discounts that you can take advantage of. On the other hand, you should be suspicious of working with a salon that offers its services at rates much lower than those of other salons in your area, as this can be a sign of poor-quality service or poor-quality extensions.

After making an appointment with a hair extension specialist, be sure to take time with him to make sure that he understands the results that you are looking for. If you feel that the stylist isn't listening to you or that he does not understand the look you are going for, you may not want to undergo the process of getting hair extensions. Instead, you may wish to seek out another hair extensions salon. Continue to visit salons and examine their work until you find one that you feel comfortable with.
