Finding a hair extension stylist
This chapter covers the details on how to go about finding a
stylist that offers the hair extension method you are interested in.
Sometimes it can be a little difficult to find a stylist in your
area. We give you the tips to make it a little easier to find
a stylist and schedule a consultation.
Find a Hair Extension Stylist
A good way to find a hair extension stylist is a recommendation from someone you know that has hair extensions. Of course many women that have hair extensions certainly donít want anyone to know, so this approach may be difficult.
Contact Hair Extension Company Directly
After you have narrowed down your choices to 2-3 different hair extension methods, you can contact those companies directly to find a trained and certified hair stylist that is close to you. Many of the hair extension companies have their own website and list all the certified and trained stylists directly on the site, or they have a toll-free number that you can call. By calling the extension companies directly, you can be assured that you are getting the contact info for a certified and trained stylist. There are many salons/stylists that advertise being certified and trained for a specific hair extension method when in fact they are not.
Does my stylist need to be certified or licensed?
Many hair extension companies require formal training and certification to attach/remove their particular method of hair extensions. You will need to verify with the specific hair extension company that the stylists you are considering is properly trained and certified.
There are also many methods that do not require a formal certificate or training classes. In this case, you will need to verify what type of training the stylists has taken and how many hair extension clients she has.
It is a good idea to go with a licensed cosmetologist. Cosmetologists are licensed by the Board of Cosmetology in each U.S. State. You can visit the websites of these boards and verify licenses, as well as finding out if any complaints have been filed against the stylist or salon. Also, you can file a complaint with the Board of cosmetology concerning a licensed cosmetologist. If you go with someone who is not a licensed cosmetologist, you are not only taking a big chance, but you will not be able to file any complaints since they are not licensed.
