Barrie Blogs: The RIGHT Way to Do Hair Extensions

Leave a Comment

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the news last week and learnt of Alexis Stanton, the woman forced to shave her head after having her hair extensions superglued to her head. When I read the headline, I immediately thought a friend must have done this to her, then as I read on I was shocked to discover that they were in fact put in by a beautician Alexis believed was qualified (the beautician in question has admitted that she isn’t qualified and claimed the client knew this).

It was this story that got me thinking about my blog post for this week. We’ve recently branched out to include Balmain hair extensions as a service we offer. At Barrie Stephen it’s not just your style we care passionately about, it’s also your well-being. This is why our top team of professional stylists make time to study every aspect of new techniques and methods, undergoing intense training and study. We’re meticulous when it comes to training at Barrie Stephen and it makes me shudder when I think of somebody putting their trust in anybody who simply doesn’t have the knowledge or skill they need to deliver the service they are offering.

I wanted to share a few before and after shots with you because Balmain is quite simply the best form of hair extension in the industry right now. Designed for beautiful thickness, it gives your natural hair a serious boost and when teamed with our knowledgeable and trained staff, we can create a look full of volume and additional length tailored to your preferences.

Take a look at the images below to see what can be achieved with Balmain, you might recognise our first model; our very own Chelsea!

My final word of advice to anyone thinking of hair extensions is only ever go to the professionals. If it seems too good to be true it’s almost always because it is, and as poor Alexis has demonstrated you lose out in other ways.
