“Temporary extensions are perfect for brides who want to have fuller hair and look camera-ready on their special day,” says Kimberly Clarke, HaloCouture Extensions events planner and sales. “Also, encourage bridal clients to consider temporary extensions as a great gift for the entire bridal party. Not only will the bridal party look stunning on the day of the wedding, temporary extensions are so simple, they will be able to enjoy them for other future special events, or for everyday use when in need of a fabulous hair day.
“With HaloCouture Extensions, it’s fast, easy and effective to give your bride the voluminous, sexy wedding day hair she desires. Whether it be up, down, or a simple sophisticated braid to the side, the extension piece goes on in a matter of seconds by positioning it on your client’s head like a halo. Then, pull some of the natural hair over the top to conceal the ‘miracle wire’ and lock it securely into place. There are no bonds, clips or glue.”
How can the extensionist create the best experience for a first-time client?

Always start by sitting down somewhere quiet, ask questions and listen. Give the idea back to them by describing to the client your understanding of her expectations and continue until the look has been agreed upon. Pictures help solidify the idea. Show your own before and after photos, people want to see results that you’ve achieved. Next, make the maintenance straightforward. Important questions to answer: How do I clean my new hair? When do I return and why?
“Ultratress Extensions offer care sheets and support products for you and your clients. Having everything disclosed in writing, and sending your client home with a home maintenance kit gives that first time client confidence that they have chosen a professional. Another great tip is a followup consultation. Invite your guest back into the salon to show you how they have done after they have recreated their look at home. Even 15 to 30 minutes of your time lets them know that you are there for them even after the installation is complete.”
