My love of extensions took root in cosmetology school, and it was one of the best things I could have done for my career. After graduating, I tried different brands until introduced to Donna Bella. I love the quality of the hair—and the support.

What Has Changed?
Extensions are no longer just about super-long hair and four-plus hours in the chair. Now I am adding extensions just for pops of color, for highlights, to add volume, to extend or brighten an ombre or balayage service.

For thinning clients, we use extensions to add thickness. For finer-haired clients, we add darker pieces to create lowlights and added dimension with minimal fading.

To colorists who are skeptical or to any stylists who are a bit intimidated by the idea of bringing hair color and extension services together, I always say “think back to your first time doing a full head of highlights.” It takes practice—and time—but once you learn and go through the process a few times, your speed and confidence improve rapidly.

Why Specialize?
It’s worth it. You can boost profits so quickly by adding color and extensions. As with anything new in our craft, success takes an open mind and practice.

When I first started at the salon seven years ago, I was the only one who did extensions. Within two years, I was so busy with extensions and consultations, I couldn’t keep up. I had no choice but to train a few other stylists in the salon. When another salon stylist sees the money you can make by being an extensions specialist, they are intrigued and want to learn, too. Who doesn’t want to make more money?

We have grown so much with extensions in our salon and town. When I talk to stylists at Donna Bella classes or shows, I often hear, “I’m from a small town, no one would want extensions.” Then I tell them about how much business I do at my North Dakota salon, and that I believe almost every client is an extensions candidate.

Something for Everyone
Not everyone has to have a full head application, in fact most of my clients don’t. Some just want to fill in around the front, ears forward. Maybe they’ve had breakage or find the hair doesn’t grow as fast. Others don’t want to over-compromise their hair, especially now that balayage is so popular. I can add one package of platinum blonde or silver extensions to add brightness and make them feel a lot lighter.

Sampling Works
One of my best tips is to always keep product at your station. Show the client what adding just a few pieces might do for her. Start out with a type of extension that doesn’t have a commitment—Donna Bella offers four types—Tape-In, I-Link, Flat-Tip, and Kera-Link. Place a few and tell her, “If you decide within a week that you don’t like it, come back and I’ll take it out for free.” Nine times out of 10, she comes back—but because she wants more. For many, the extra thickness and volume are addictive.

Pricing Pointers
As far as pricing extensions, the nationwide average for Donna Bella Hair ranges from $5-10 per strand for the application process, plus what you charge for the hair itself. So if you install 20 to 40 strands, you would charge from $140 to $280. With practice, installing 20-40 strands should take about a half-hour. Then, depending on the method and the service, the client comes back in 6 to 12 weeks to remove the extensions and move them back up to the root area. You charge for the total time the service requires, which varies depending on the method. Even a few fashion color strands can generate $20-30 for a quick 5-minute add-on service.

Making a Difference
It all comes back to a conversation with your client and building trust. Extensions are a huge money-maker for our salon, but extensions also change people’s lives, and that’s very gratifying.

I had a client who was struggling with the fact that her hair did not grow back with the same texture after successful treatment for cancer. We found a solution with extensions. She was in my chair, in tears, so happy. Hair is one of the most important accessories we have, and extensions—along with hair color and a great style—allow us to give clients the accessory they want.

Another fine-haired client just wants to be as platinum on her ends as can be. So I said, let’s add some Color #60 (Donna Bella’s lightest, most neutral shade) to your hair. I’ve had her rebooking for a solid year now because I can give her the look that no other stylist can with hair color alone. I simply retouch her regrowth and just push up her extensions.

And then there are clients who crave those really fun fashion colors that are so huge right now. I can create a custom color with extensions or place a few bright pops, no pre-lightening necessary.

Sky’s the Limit
My main message to share with fellow salon professionals is simple: if you can specialize in extensions and the custom coloring of extensions, you will set yourself apart from other stylists and salons. The sky really is the limit. From mermaid hair to subtle lowlights, the opportunities are there, in your chair.

Don’t let hesitation hold you back. Try new things on fellow stylists and family. Take pics and post your transformations. One really good before-and-after on a professional Instagram page can get you 10 new clients, easily.

Before/After

It’s a new time. Where traditionally, coming into work with a green streak in your hair would get a write-up from your boss, now bold fashion colors are a norm that’s becoming more and more accepted in mainstream society. At Donna Bella, we’re thrilled at the development because it opens the door for SO many awesome color combinations stylists can achieve by coloring their hair extensions and working them into the mix. Whether working with mermaid colors, strong neons, or the increasingly popular Pastel Unicorn effects, here’s why stylists and clients alike are turning to less conventional hues for their hair creations. For a look at how we created a gorgeous Pastel Unicorn effect, be sure to reference our video with world renowned stylist Ashley Rocks!

Some fashion bloggers snarkily refer to the pastel phenomenon as “the colorful response to granny hair.” Though surely made in jest, it’s a comment that’s not all that far off from reality. Since modern iterations of silver hairstyles indicate that it can indeed be a sexy color not exclusive to the nursing home, the pastel phenomenon takes this principle just a step further on the color commitment scale.

In terms of color literacy and flexibility, we recognize that all clients are on different spots of the spectrum. Some stick to the familiar confines of naturally occurring hair hues when looking for a change, while others branch out to work strains from the rainbow into the concoction. Pastel Hair, and its associated styles, takes its inspiration from the land of mythology, merriment, and whimsy. Whether it’s Lisa Frank stickers, Adventure Time, or something on the psychedelic spectrum, Pastel styles work fashion colors in the silver, cobalt, light yellow, pink, and purple ranges for a versatile effect that’s entirely fashion-color based, but softer in its execution than a neon might be. What’s more is you, the artist and visionary, can construct a look based on your individual need. Want more green than pink? No sweat. Heavier on silver and blue? You can do that too. The combos are literally endless.

Some clients may have the itch for fashion colors. Maybe they’ve grown bored with their “naturally occurring” choices, and want to take it off the beaten path. In this regard, Pastel or Unicorn effects can be used for softer color effects that are still striking. When dealing with fashion colors, it’s important to remember that all the tenants of safe coloring become tantamount: working with shades that compliment the client’s skin tone, using semi- and demi-permanent colors, and strand testing to eliminate unwanted surprises are key.

Utilizing fashion colors creates limitless color creations for you and your clients. Be sure they know their options, the various color transitional effects, and that a pastel color ‘do can get their creative rocks off without the harsh commitments of neon or fashion ombres. It’s fun, flirty, and just a little bit left of center. Be sure to stay tuned to the Donna Bella Color Takeover Portal for more hair tips and tricks like this one!

 

The Importance of Practice – Coloring Interview with Lindsey Graham

I have been doing extensions since 2007. Now I specialize in Donna Bella Tape-In extensions and see about 10 extensions clients per week. It’s amazing how far extensions have come. Once you’ve got a client in your chair and can talk to them about the service and their own hair challenges or wishes, extensions practically sell themselves.

Pricing Pointers
I have raised my prices as I’ve gotten faster and learned what extensions are worth. If you specialize in hair color and start doing extensions, you should pay yourself based on your time, your expertise. If you charge $150 for a hair color service that takes you two hours, charge the same for an extensions application that takes two hours (knowing that you’ll charge separately for the hair packs and custom coloring services). If you become the best in your town, charge competitively!

Practice, Practice, Practice
As you get started, offer extensions as a complimentary service to family and friends to master the technique, and to be sure you know your timing. Really practice before you start booking clients. You’ll want to be sure you know how to order the right amount of hair, and how to match and color it correctly. There are lots of resources online and helpful classes and educators to talk to at shows to help you figure this out.

Expand Your Options
The Color Takeover program is the first I’ve heard of any extensions company encouraging the coloring of extensions. I’m impressed Donna Bella partnered with a professional color company and tool company to give stylists the education they need. It opens up a whole new world. Anyone with a vibrant or custom color can now get extensions. I can convert a blonde client to silver gray. I can accommodate clients I’ve had to turn down in the past. With these types of options, who wouldn’t want extensions?

How to Have a Successful Consultation with a Color Client

ColorConsultation-01

Hair extension consultations are important as it is—they make up the basis of a successful installation—but they are particularly crucial for custom color clients. This is because the coloring process is multifaceted, and can vary significantly based on your client’s circumstances and objectives. Today, we’re going to go over the pillars of a successful color consultation, explaining what you need to do to make sure your client’s goals are being met.

Understand what the client wants.
Namely, do they want extensions to match their natural hair and/or add a bit of dimension, or do they want their extensions to be colored to a different shade? If they want them colored to a different shade, have them bring in print-outs that accurately show the color or look they want, and have them check the Color Ring to see if they find a good approximation there. If not, ask them to describe what they like about the color to get a sense for how they perceive the tone and shade. Perception is everything, so make sure you understand what they’re seeing.

Know the extent.
Ask your client to explain the extent of their color transformation. Do they want an all-over color change? A couple of well-placed highlights? An ombre? Will the color job involve coloring their natural hair, or just the extensions? Find out all of the relevant limits so that you have a firm grasp of the client’s expectations.

Discuss the methods.
Donna Bella has two methods for achieving color transformations using hair extensions: blending or coloring. In some cases, you can automatically rule one of the methods out based on your client’s stated goal—say, an all-over color change—but oftentimes it’ll depend on your client’s preferences. Both methods have their benefits, so be sure to spell them out to your client so they can make an informed decision.

Choose the extension color.
With your selected method in mind, return to the Color Ring and find the appropriate colors. For the blending method, you’re looking for the closest shades to the desired outcome color (up to 2 steps lighter and 2 steps darker). For the coloring method, you’re looking for either the closest shade up to 2 steps lighter than the outcome color, or the lightest shade in the same tone family as the desired outcome color (#60 for cool/neutral or #1001 for warm); you’ll also need to select the hair colors to be used during the coloring process.

Explain the steps.
Tell your client what will happen on the day of their color appointment, on the day of their installation appointment (they should be separate), and during any subsequent touch-up or move-up appointments. Be specific with your descriptions so your client can fully visualize the course of action. Explain the preparation work that your client needs to do before arriving to their appointments, and the aftercare they’ll need to perform to maintain their extensions and hair color. Demonstrate the aftercare tasks, and invite your client to repeat the steps in their own words. Suggest a schedule for all aftercare procedures, including touch-up and move-up appointments, and have your client revise and commit.

Schedule and order.
Once all the details of the service have been verified, schedule the appointment. If a color job is included in the service, schedule it as an individual appointment separate from the installation (the process will have to be completed in phases, with coloring first and installation following after a couple of days). You may even decide to schedule the first touch-up and/or move-up appointment in advance, to give your client incentive to adhere to their approved schedule. As soon as the appointment(s) have been scheduled, place an order for the necessary hair and colors (or set aside the necessary amount of the chosen colors, if they’re already on hand).

The Only Color Products for Your Extensions

ColorProducts-01

When coloring your hair extensions, you may notice that instructions always call for demi or semi-permanent hair color (sometimes called “direct dyes”). Here’s why: permanent hair color literally dehydrates the hair cuticle, lifting its natural color so it can accept new pigment. These color jobs must always be used in conjunction with a strict hydration regimen and treatment schedule as anyone who’s ever bleached their hair can tell you: it can make your hair feel like straw! Using any color that lifts—be it a peroxide or bleach—on hair extensions will actually damage them and render them unusable. Because permanent color puts such a strain on the hair, demi or semi-permanent hair color is preferred for coloring extensions because they will pull off the same coloring effect without putting your hair, extensions, or scalp through the harsh treatment of permanent color.

What is Demi or Semi-Permanent Color?
Demi and semi-permanent hair color contain no ammonia and only deposits color onto the hair. Essentially, since these products do not lift the hair cuticle when adding color, the hair’s existing color stays underneath the new color. Semi and demi-permanent colors are mixed with low-volume developers, which help open up the cuticle so it can absorb the new color, and last for multiple shampoos: demi-permanent hair color washes out in up to 24 shampoos, with semi-permanent hair color lasting anywhere from 4 to 12 shampoos, depending on the amount used. These products are often used to blend gray, enhance natural color, refresh existing color, tone highlights, or for corrective work.

One distinct benefit of using demi and semi-permanent colors is that they can be applied to the extensions (after the strand test and other preliminary coloring tasks) straight from the bottle without having to be mixed with hydrogen peroxide and other chemicals. Since they perform without these strong chemicals and additives, they make the overall coloring experience much more pleasant for everyone involved as odors, the risk of chemical burns, and the sensory harshness of ammonia and peroxide are completely avoided!

It’s important to remember that Donna Bella Hair Extensions are real Human Remy hair and, as such, should be treated like your own natural hair. Proper maintenance, upkeep, and overall preparation are essential for keeping hair extensions looking their best. In that regard, using color products that will help maintain the hair without stripping it of natural oils and colors will go a long way in creating an ideal color effect that lasts. You can color your hair extensions! Just follow our advice, stay within 2 shades, and always deposit color instead of lifting. Whether adding fashionable colors or working to bring out existing highlights, demi and semi-permanent color applied to Donna Bella Hair Extensions will help you get the long, colorful hair you long for!

Coloring Hair with the Integrity-Focused Approach

Integrity-01

Stylists who go through our Donna Bella certification program know that we promote an integrity-focused approach when it comes to installing and maintaining hair extensions. This means that throughout the hair extension process, we’re acting in a way that ensures the continued integrity of the Remy extensions. This is every bit as true for coloring extensions as it is for installing them; coloring services should always be performed with an integrity-focused approach as this will produce the best, most vibrant outcomes. But what does that involve, exactly?

Firstly, you should always follow the 10 cardinal rules of coloring hair extensions.
These are:
1.  Use professional (semi or demi permanent) colors, only
2.  Do not lighten or bleach (only darken)
3.  Perform a strand test first
4.  Color extensions off of the client’s head (not when installed)
5.  Stay within 2 shades of the extension base color
6.  Pre-wash extensions with sulfate-free shampoo before coloring them
7.  Always flip extensions to color both sides
8.  Go with the direction of the hair’s cuticle when brushing color onto the extensions
9.  Remove all tape from Tape-In hair extensions before applying color
10. Use only sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo and conditioner on color-treated hair
Following these rules will help you achieve the color outcomes that you want without compromising the health of the extensions themselves.

Then, you should simply take your time.
No good will come from you rushing through a color job (or an installation appointment, for that matter). Though the process can be lengthy, shaving off a couple of minutes at the risk of botching the color and/or extensions is just not worth it. Time is the name of the game, and it’s the only way to get those top-notch, beautiful results. So roll your sleeves up and knock it out of the park.

Sombre

Sombre-01

Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 9.57.56 AM

Before/After

The Ombre is a premiere hair effect, and one that extensions pull off with ease. It’s completely low-maintenance and gives your hair that colorful zip without the strain and damage of all-over permanent dyes. With its popular adoption in mainstream culture, it was only a matter of time before new variations of the hairstyle rose to the fore. And so “Sombre,” which basically translates to “Soft Ombre,” aims to achieve the same effects of the Ombre hairstyle with a subtler transition. As such, a Sombre style employs softer coloring techniques, so as to be gentler on the hair. Some see it as “Ombre backlash,” a phenomenon that style journalists know is practically inevitable whenever a particular style gets even slightly popular. Perhaps the Sombre is just the “quieter” cousin of the Ombre. A little more laid back, a little less flashy in the color combinations, the reins slightly more pulled in.

As far as pointers, Sombres follow most of the same conceptual steps of the Ombre, only with a softer color transition. To achieve the soft, subtle look, it’s best to start up high with the color, applying the color close to the roots to maintain depth and slowly brighten the hair as it nears the end. An Ombre/Sombre can be a tricky effect to achieve for the uninitiated, so remember that it’s always better to “under-color” than to over-do it. If you finish the process and you find the highlights aren’t pronounced enough, you can always go back over them to add more. If you overdo it from the beginning, it’s much trickier to fix!

Many Sombres use a blond effect, but the style can be much broader to incorporate lighter browns into chocolate browns, or even dark hair into burgundy. Your creativity is up to you. Here’s our Donna Bella quick guide to Sombre style. Please refer to our video featuring Ashley Rocks for closer reference.

Some advantages of the Sombre are that it can appeal to clients who want a color transformation, but feel intimidated by the Ombre outright. Appealing to a softer color transition can help assuage their fears of something too bright or harsh for their taste. Furthermore, since the Sombre literally uses less hair color than a traditional Ombre, it’s cheaper and uses even less product in the client’s hair. There’s an appealing premise for those squeamish about the potential damage hair color can do.

While the Ombre is already an extremely low-maintenance hairstyle, since it allows for growth at the root (when they’re kept natural) and doesn’t need constant upkeep to maintain the color when kept within two shades, the Sombre is even lower maintenance. Think of it like a “starter Ombre” for those thinking of moving into the territory but who aren’t sure about committing to the look. With many style bloggers praising the Sombre for its “take your summer hair into winter” versatility, and the host of permutations on the Ombre style tree only increasing, keeping the Sombre in the arsenal of color effects is a win for stylists and clients.

Selecting the Right Hair Extensions to Color

db blog Mar 2017-01

When performing a custom color job on Donna Bella extensions, it’s vital that you select the correct initial shade. As with most hair services, there are rules that dictate how you should apply color to hair extensions, making it impossible to, say, lighten a #6 to a golden blond or transform a #2 into a vivid blue without disastrous (or just disappointing) results. Luckily, Donna Bella offers a wide range of extension colors for your base, making the coloring process as simple and effective as possible. Here, we’ll detail the steps you need to take to choose the perfect one.

1. Know your destination color. The starting point for a warm chestnut brown color will be very different from the starting point for a cool pastel pink, so know what your destination color is to begin with. You and your client should identify the desired shade (from light to dark) and tone (from warm to cool) of the color you’re going for, as this will provide the most information for your selection.

2. Have a Color Ring. A Donna Bella Color Ring is indispensable for hair extension services, and it comes in handy for DB custom color jobs, too. Use the Color Ring to find 1-3 close matches to your destination color, erring slightly on the lighter side (as color will be applied to darken the extension). For example, if your destination color is a cool medium-dark red, you may decide that the closest matches are colors #30/33, #31, and #32. If you happen to find a shade that exactly matches your client’s goal color, all the better.

3. Narrow down. Ideally, you’re looking for a color up to 2 steps lighter than your destination color, and within the same tone family. This will ensure that the hair will take to the custom color, and process it in a predictable way (no surprises in sight!). It will also ensure that the hair remains in tip-top condition from start to finish, as a 2-step change means a shorter processing time. Of course, it may not be possible to find a base extension that is both 1 or 2 steps lighter and in the same tone family as your destination color. If that’s the case, the 2-step rule takes precedence; just account for the tonal change with your color formulation.

4. Quick note: If your destination color is not a natural hair color (say, forest green or cotton candy blue), and it does not resemble any of our funky extension colors, start from a #60. This shade is one of our most neutral and least pigmented, making the perfect canvas for a truly vibrant transformation. When in doubt, you can also start with #60 for natural-looking color jobs.

All the Tools You Need For a Successful Color Job

db blog Feb 2017-01

No matter how much experience, zeal, and creative whimsy they possess, a stylist can really only be as good as the tools they have at their disposal. Whether it’s a routine change-up, installing a full head of extensions, or a custom coloring for a full-on transformation, here’s our list of the top shelf tools you need for a successful color job.

Semi or Demi-Permanent Colors
For coloring extensions, we encourage the use of semi or demi-permanent colors. These products deposit color onto the hair rather than lifting it (which actually dehydrates the cuticle) for a gentler coloring experience. Plus, since they’re semi and demi-permanent, they put far less strain and chemical stress on the hair than permanent colors would. For fashion colors, specifically, we’ve found that Joico Color Intensity works incredibly well for coloring hair extensions!

Donna Bella #60 Extensions
Although all our Remy shades can be professionally colored, bright, bold fashion colors such as rainbow or pastel hair require a blank canvas for the full effect. In these cases, we recommend our palest, most neutral blonde shade: #60. It’s available in all four professional installation methods and will take on fashion colors vibrantly.

Olaplex Lightener
Olaplex, labeled as a “bond multiplier,” helps reconnect broken disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair. By applying it to a lightener or hair color, your client’s hair will be kept strong during and after the coloring process, essential for keeping colors looking their best. It’s free of the silicones and oils presents in many other products and helps maintain hair’s natural strength and resilience after being treated. Note that in all our color formulas contained on the Donna Bella Color Takeover Portal, we include Olaplex lightener. Clients can also use Olaplex as a weekly treatment for their hair.

A Quality Brush
Applying color to hair or extensions requires a quality brush that will distribute the color evenly. We strongly recommend the Famar brush because the bristles are extremely soft and reduce strain on the wrist and joints—especially handy when you’re coloring multiple extensions at once. Key points to look for when selecting a brush are how well it will distribute color, and the softness of the bristles. Softer bristles will probably distribute better and are less likely to damage the extensions in the process.

Re-hydrating/Moisturizing Shampoo
Encourage clients to keep their hair plenty hydrated after coloring. A hydrating shampoo and even a mask treatment will go far in extending their custom-colored look. All hair types feature different levels of oiliness, and so different clients will require different maintenance regimens. The important thing is that they’re regularly hydrating their hair long after they leave the chair.

Bowl, Gloves, Paper Towels/Coverings
Maybe these seem like a given, but a color job always requires a place to do it, somewhere to mix the ingredients and, of course, appropriate cover for your hands and the furniture around you. Always make sure you’ve got these basic elements at your disposal to ensure clean and streamlined coloring in the salon.

Having the appropriate tools available, as well as a clean and functional workspace, is essential in making your color creation process smooth and hassle-free. Check out our Donna Bella Color Takeover Portal for more tips and tricks!

 

Which Color Is Right for Your Client?

Which-Color-Is-Right-for-Your-Client

There are many different hair colors available in the beauty industry, and that in itself is an understatement. Different formulas are springing up all the time, from various different brands making the same kinds of promises: long-wearing, non-damaging vibrant hues that are true to the color swatch. So with all the L’Oreals, Kenras, and Pravanas in the world, how do you choose one for your hair extension coloring needs? Donna Bella is here to help you answer that very question.

Stick with professional, semi and demi permanent hair colors.
In terms of color grade, hair colors range from professional to generic and permanent to impermanent. Donna Bella hair extensions should only be treated with professional grade, semi or demi permanent hair colors. Professional colors contain far less developer than one-size-fits-all box colors, and can be personalized to the client for the most efficient and damage-free results. Semi and demi permanent colors are far less invasive than other professional colors (not permeating the entire hair shaft), but are reasonably long-wearing, making them a perfect compromise for continued extension health.

Try our Donna Bella-approved colors.
Even within the category of professional, semi or demi permanent hair colors, there are too many color options to sift through. So allow us to make it easy for you; Joico Color Intensities is, in our experience, the best hair color line for Donna Bella hair extensions. These colors are highly pigmented, easily mixable, and require no developer at all to process, making them one of the safest choices for integrity-focused color jobs. We’ve seen Joico Color Intensities used to produce exceptionally vivid makeovers in styles ranging from emerald mermaid to pastel unicorn and beyond. And these makeovers remain unphased through months of wear (when adhering to a one-wash-per-week shower schedule).

Donna Bella has partnered with Joico Color Intensities and Framar International to bring you all the hair extension coloring info you need to level up your extension services. Visit the Color Takeover Portal today to check out everything from Joico color before & afters to custom formulas and instructional videos.
