Xtension Envy has expanded its leadership team ahead of the launch of its new franchise.
"Xtension Envy was the first hair extension membership salon in the United States, so it makes sense that we are the one to now offer the full continuum of franchise offerings," says Scott Lewandowski, CEO and cofounder of Xtension Envy.
Xtension Envy—The Hair Extension Salon offers the complete hair extension experience: premium extension installation and maintenance services, including coloring, blending and styling services.
After four years of operating the first Xtension Envy salon in Scottsdale, Arizona, the company is now offering business opportunities to other entrepreneurs as a turnkey franchise offering.
