You can only wear hair extensions styled and curled….. MYTH✨

I hear this from potential guests more often than not. It is simply not true. With IBE you can wear your hair however your heart desires, including straight! This is why I preach so much about researching your extension stylist! With proper cutting and blending, you should be able to wear your extensions straight and still have a seamless, blended look!

✨Transparent Post✨

Hello lovelies! It has been quite a while since I’ve posted anything. In all honesty, as a person, I am extremely introverted. I truly put all my energy into my clients appointments and making sure they have the best experience in the chair with me!

Putting extra energy into being super present on social media is a whole other job that I am simply not the best at, but I am trying to be better about it! I love you guys and love interacting with you and sharing my work/tips & tricks!

•This gorgeous client of mine has been transitioning from all over platinum to a more natural, lived in look for a few months now. I tried out this technique and we are OBSESSED ✨

Just a quick educational post✨

•The photo on the left was taken today after we removed some old extensions, colored the hair and before a fresh Invisible Bead Extensions®️] install.

•The photo on the right was taken back in March of 2021, when this sweet guest of mine embarked on our extension journey together as a brand new team.

•The difference here is exactly what you should be experiencing while wearing extensions. Even with the fine hair, hormonal hair loss, etc…. extensions should never be causing damage to your natural hair.

Another IBE install✨

This client has worn Keratin tip extensions for YEARS. With her extremely fine hair, machine wefts were too heavy for her hair. Ironically she had been researching the method before I decided to go through certification with them. We were ECSTATIC when we were able to install a more full coverage method that wouldn’t damage her natural hair.
This method was able to give her more coverage, more flexibility, hidden attachment points and endless styling options✨

First off, I want to preface this post by saying this is in no way speaking negatively on whoever installed this extension work. This post is solely meant to educate and inform guests, that is all.
Today, I had a new client consultation for . She informed me when we spoke last week that she currently had extensions and just had a fresh reinstall but was looking for a new stylist so we set up an appointment to make a game plan for her future appointment with me.

These are photos of an install after only 6 DAYS of wear….
What you see in these photos is extreme tension, wefts slipping out everywhere, improperly color matched beads popping out and strings being left in the hair about 6-8 inches long.
This made me very sad to be honest. If this was left in her hair for extended periods of time this would absolutely cause significant damage to this guests natural hair and scalp. If you have extensions, please do not think this is normal.
