This is where The London Hair Lab steps in from the salon only hair extension experts Vixen & Blush. Filling a gap in the market to provide the highest quality hair extensions that match the requirements of some of the most respected hairstylists, The London Hair Lab is a luxury hair extension brand that specialises as the UK’s top distributor across to the country’s most popular high-end salons.

Founded back in 2012 by Sarah McKenna, Vixen and Blush started as a humble one chair salon. Dedicated to sourcing better-quality hair than was available anywhere else in the UK, Sarah spent three years travelling the globe to ensure she stood out from the crowd. Today Sarah and her team at Vixen and Blush work closely with her very own distribution company she established The London Hair Lab, sourcing the world’s finest hair, ethically from a single source within Russia where it is carefully blended by hand at their London lab and made into their five popular variety of methods.
With a focus on providing naturally true to life shades that blend in with client’s current styles, hair extensions are made to reflect current colour trends with lots of dimension and rooted shades ensuring better blending. This is paired with professional training with regular masterclasses which is one of the central pillars to The London Hair Lab’s growth and the reason why they only collaborate with select salons, drawing experiences stylists to ensure they are always improving techniques.
One of Vixen and Blush’s techniques to ensure a unique colour blend rather than using packed from pre-defined colours is mixing a blend of custom colours that is bespoke to each client, meaning the extensions match the client’s hair on a microscopic level, working creatively to create the ultimate natural look. This is handled by Sarah’s professional team of highly qualified hairdressers who have a minimum of ten years of experience working in full-service salons. One of their core values is that hair extensions should not be fitted by technicians but rather by a team of creative stylists who understand the principles of hair care with curated hair skills across all types of hairdressing.
