If like me you’re not offering hair extensions as part of your hairdressing business, then we are all potentially missing out on some seriously good revenue opportunities. At worst we may even be loosing some of our most loyal customers to rival businesses who do offer hair extensions as part of their hairdressing services.

For some the image of doing hair extensions can seem daunting. Long service hours, choosing the right method of application, extensions damaging the hair, extensions falling out. Fear no more, because I’m joined by one of the most influential hair extensionists in the world, Michelle Griffin of Griffins Salons. Today she’ll be debunking all the myths, latest techniques and benefits to what you really need to know when it comes to offering quality hair extensions as part of your hairdressing services.

Michelle has trained and worked with hairpieces and wigs from the age of 16 years. After 30 years of working with added hair and running a salon, Michelle has now developed her own line of luxury hair extensions called LoxBox. LoxBox provides all methods of hair extensions, coupled with training courses, which are taught throughout the UK and Internationally.

Renowned for her passion and enthusiasm towards hair extensions, you’ll be confident to know that you’re going to be getting an audio masterclass on hair extensions from this multi-award winning hairdresser. You’ll learn everything you need to know on hair extensions from selecting the right method of application, how to book the correct appointment time, and a complete step by step guide to getting you set up in using hair extensions.

This episode is great if you’ve been sitting on the fence to whether or not you should be offering hair extensions as part of your business. I’m confident that after listening in to this brilliant conversation with Michelle you’ll be chomping at the bit to get going and maybe one day, becoming a hair extensions expert yourself. Now all you need to get going with your journey in hair extensions is hit that play button. Enjoy!
