Are you losing hair-addition clients because traditional, strand-by-strand services are taking too long to complete?
Tape-in extensions can be your time savior with a 45-minute application time by seasoned extensionists. Simplicity Hair Extensions by TressAllure, for instance, features a winged, adhesive strip, which binds securely to existing hair and allows you to place tracks in no time flat. The extensions consist of high-quality remy hair, are undetectable to the eye and offer absolute comfort while sleeping.
"At our salon, we use two types of extensions— Hairlocs and Simplicity," says Shelly Gutowski, a dedicated hair extensionist and owner of Boutique Out East Salon & Spa in Bradenton, Florida. "Hairlocs extensions are added to hair one strand at a time. The results are gorgeous, but they require a big investment in terms of time and money. I introduced the Simplicity tape-in extensions to our menu a few months ago, because they offer clients a quicker, cheaper way to get fuller, longer hair."
Gutowski's steps for making Simplicity a true lunch-hour service:
- Have clients purchase two sets of hair so that you can alternate applications. This allows time for one set to be cleaned and new adhesive applied, while the other set is being worn.
- Ask the client to come to her appointment with clean hair.
- Have everything ready before she arrives.
Gutowski adds that Simplicity tape-in extensions aren't the only timesaving service that she provides for her overly busy clientele.
"We have a Boot Camp facial (resurfacing treatment) that takes 20 minutes and leaves the skin moist and glowing; mini-facial for skin maintenance that lasts 40 minutes; base-breaking service that takes 15 minutes and minimizes the demarcation line on hair that has had high-lift or highlight services; and abbreviated manicures and pedicures."
