In this video, Covet & Mane Educator Danita Hampton shares tips on how to manage your client expectations by doing a thorough hair extension consultation.
Achieving flawless hair extension consultations starts with a deep dive into your client’s natural hair.
Assess your client’s natural texture: This foundational step enables precise assessment of hair texture, aiding the creation of seamlessly blended extensions.
Request photos of their air-dried, natural hair: This empowers stylists to customize extensions that seamlessly integrate with existing locks, ensuring a stunning transformation.
While aiming to fulfill all client desires, acknowledging hair extension suitability is paramount.
Be honest and transparent: Some clients may have hair that’s too short, thin, or damaged for optimal outcomes. Even if extensions aren’t the right fit, respectful explanations foster trust, respect, and informed choices.
Effective communication forms the bedrock of managing client expectations, especially regarding color and maintenance.
Educate clients about touch-ups: For vibrant shades, educating clients about regular touch-ups (typically every four weeks) sustains color brilliance.
Creating lived in looks: Introducing a lived-in look can offer both style and convenience. Employing extensions with dimensional colors and proper wefts ensures depth enhancement while preserving hair health.
Elevating hair extension consultations transcends technical prowess. It hinges on cultivating robust client-stylist relationships grounded in trust, communication, and transparent expectations.
Through a thorough understanding of natural hair, meticulous evaluation of suitability, and effective expectation management, the groundwork is laid for transformative extensions.
This synthesis of beauty and confidence reflects the true artistry of the stylist-client partnership.
