As an artist… there’s no greater feeling then giving your clients the hair they’ve always dreamt of!!! The key is to have it look as natural as possible and give them that WOW factor!!! The sound of their heels clickity clackin just a bit faster with more swinging n sway in their hips as they leave your chair, let’s me know their confidence is through the roof!!! With the extension service on a continual growth of 18% the past few years, its truly a tell tale sign this is no fad!!! We can surely make a huge impact in our clients lives yet the secret is… healthy attachments and a believable end result!!! -Ruben Martinez

 

*Hair Nerd Note* If you know anything about us, you are aware of our self-described ” Hair Whore” status. We all 3 wear extensions and are mildly obsessive about constantly needing MORE  hair. This is a class we are super excited about..
