Hair Friday! Tips from Christopher Box, EasiHair Pro Lead Stylist

When I first learned I would be getting hair extensions, I did as much research as possible. If you are considering getting your own (they are so worth it, especially for special occasions!) check out all of the info below. Getting and maintaining extensions properly takes a little time and a little love. You can't go wrong with the articles below! Consider this your cheat sheet!

 

I am a salon owner, stylist and beauty blogger. I am lucky enough to get to work with a cool hair extension company called easihair pro. One of the cool things we do is fly to NYC to support Fashion Week twice a year. You wouldn't believe just how many hair extensions are used to create the looks that go down the runway!

I was super excited about this last season because easihair pro had green lighted a blogger makeover project I had been working on. Basically, I was going to be able to reach out to handful of beauty bloggers and give them a hair extension makeover. Working with beauty bloggers is always fun because they really know their stuff. 

Carly with www.lacqueredlover.com sent a post out and in no time I had several bloggers interested. I have to say that I was drawn to Kelly because of the name of her blog, Gouldylox Reviews. I loved the play on her last name an how she incorporated it into her blog name. 

When Kelly sent me over her pic I knew she was going to be a challenge. She had an ombre technique on red hair. Red hair is extremely hard to match with hair extensions. 

We did the application at my pal Anthony Friend's Photography Studio. (Yes, his last name is really Friend). He is fantastic btw, check out his work. 

Not only did Kelly have red hair but thick hair. I could feel the sweat start beading up on my forehead... this really was going to be a challenge! Luckily, I was up for the challenge! I dove in and began the application. 

I knocked it out in about an hour and a half. When we were done I was blown away! We had released Kelly's inner hair diva. She looked so great with her long hair. Words like vixen kept popping into my head. 

She was a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed her nerdy talk about cameras and all the cool stuff she gets to see and do. 

Once I was done I realized that she would probably have lots and lots of people asking questions about her transformation. That's why when I got back to Geek Headquarters I put together a list of my favorite hair extension blog posts form my website. 

Educational and Entertaining, these posts will give you all the info you need to get your very own hair extension makeover!
