Hairroin Salon Debuts 2012 Education Series with Extension Lab

Hairroin Salon, LA’s only Sebastian Professional Flagship Salon, is kicking off an education series for stylists and salon owners, beginning with “Extension Lab.” Hair extensions have become a commonplace request in salons and can be an extremely lucrative part of salon business. Taking place Sunday, March 25 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Extension Lab is one power-packed day of intense theory and hands-on learning presented by Hairroin’s extension specialists. This master class equips stylists with the knowledge and tools to incorporate extensions into their businesses and serve their clients’ extension needs.
“Booking just two full head extension services a month can double the average stylist’s bottom line,” said Sarah Merrie, Director of Education, Hairroin Salon. “The challenge facing our industry right now is simply education. There are few options out there for extension classes, which are often very costly and only teach a single method. Hairroin Salon is inviting other stylists to our Los Angeles education facility, and sharing the knowledge we’ve accumulated from years of working with Hollywood’s most discerning clients. This fast-paced class is geared toward the experienced stylist who already has a good working knowledge of head shape and geometry.”  
Extension Lab will cover hair extension theory, training stylists in determining the right method for each client, color and texture matching, placement, care and maintenance. Demonstrations and hands-on learning in 10+ methods of hair extensions will be provided, including cutting and blending techniques. The cost for Extension Lab is $1600 and includes: a kit containing most tools necessary to do a variety of extensions; removal potions, lotions and tools; a mannequin head and practice hair; an education packet for future reference, and client release forms. Supplier contact and ordering information, including a color match swatch ring, will also be provided so stylists can start their extension business immediately.

Also at Hairroin Salon:

Every Friday from 6-9 p.m., guests can sip on complimentary champagne and enjoy $35 bombshell blowouts from top notch stylists who have worked with Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger, Katharine McPhee, Cyndi Lauper, Adam Lambert and more. Hairroin’s extensive menu of shampoo cocktails and blow drys offers something for all hair types and includes signature looks such as the “Curly Girl” (lush, sculpted sections of hand-diffused curls), or the “Beachy Finish” (loose, tousled waves created post-blow dry).

On March 21 it’s time to BYOB and “Bring Your Own Blow Dryer” for a free class in blow drying techniques led by master stylist Dalina Rebollo. As Hairroin’s resident blowout expert, Dalina has lent her talents to TV shows such as Robin Antin’s Search for the Next Pussycat Doll and Girlicious. BYOB will be offered on Wednesday, March 21 from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend, but reservations are recommended as space is limited. Guests must bring their own blow dryer, brush and product. Wine and appetizers will be provided.
