5 Questions to Ask Your Hair Stylist About Hair Extensions
Getting hair extensions can be an exciting yet anxious process for someone who has never had extensions. Before spending the time and money on your new hair journey, you should ask important questions to make sure you have the best experience possible. Here are some questions you can ask your stylist.
Questions to Ask Your Hair Stylist
1. Which Method is best for me?
Every method isn’t meant for everyone and that’s okay! Your stylist should examine your hair and listen to your concerns before offering method choices. Do you want something quick with low maintenance? Or something that takes a little more time and upkeep? There are methods that require little maintenance and methods that require much care. Your stylist can walk you through the pros and cons of each method and it's up to you to figure out which method you think you can properly maintain.

2. How long does the method last?
Each method has a duration period, and your stylist will let you know if your method is good for a few weeks or a few months. It's also important to know that the way you care for your extensions effects the longevity of them. With proper care such as washing and brushing them, your extensions will be able to last for quite some time and even be reused for a future hair appointment. But if you're not taking care of your hair, the extensions itself can become damaged and more importantly, damage your natural hair.
3. Does the extension color match my hair?
Make sure your stylist has the color that matches seamlessly to your hair or has the color you want. The last thing you want is to walk out the salon with two unintentionally different hair colors. Ask your stylist if they have a color ring or book of hair color swatches that you could take a look at.
4. Will it damage my natural hair?
Your stylist knows the pros and cons of every method. There shouldn’t be any damage if the method is applied correctly and cared for properly, but you should still express any concern to your stylist. You should always go to a stylist who is licensed and experienced in hair extension application. An experienced stylist would know how to install extensions without damaging and putting unnecessary stress and tension on your natural locks. But application is only the half of it. Taking care of your extensions is up to you. If you're consistent in proper care, then your extensions shouldn't damage your hair, at all.
5. How do I maintain my hair extensions?
Care and upkeep are the most important for your natural hair and extensions. These are just a few tips:
- Washing Your Hair
- Daily Brushing
- Protective Styling for Bedtime
Your stylist should inform you on exactly what to do to keep your hair healthy.
