Extensions via the Kacey Welch Method

kacey welch hair colorist los angelesIf you’re thinking of updating your look via hair extensions, it’s important to do your homework! Our resident expert and one of LA’s premiere extensions specialists, Kacey Welch, gives us the 411 on what you need to know before booking that appointment. Kacey is known for her special extensions application technique, rightfully deemed the “Kacey Welch Method”. Her method is actually known for improving the condition of your natural hair – you can learn more about this technique via the before and after video here – Quick Fix for Dull or Yellow Blonde + Extensions Tutorial

Kaceys Tips
  1. Don’t book an appointment just yet – book a consultation first. Most stylists who do extensions will not take a client on without that initial consultation first to see what your goals are and so they can properly source the right hair and color.
  2. If at all possible, have your stylist source real human hair for the wefts. Kacey says you’ll get the best, most natural looking results this way.
  3.  Extensions are not just for length. A lot of clients come to sit in Kacey’s chair not looking for longer hair necessarily but rather more volume and thickness. Kacey says you would be amazed at what a difference just one or two wefts makes to achieve this. A good example of this is Kacey’s client Kate Hudson, seen on the November covers of Allure and InStyle Germany this month. There’s so much range you can do with extensions whether you’re wanting length, thickness, or somewhere in between.kate hudson allure magazine november 2015 cover kate hudson instyle germany november 2015
  4.  Get your extensions custom colored. It’s important your stylist custom colors your extensions so they blend in perfectly with your natural hair.
Kacey’s final words of advice: “Extensions can be an amazing way to upgrade your look and the process can be fun too. Longer and fuller hair really can be an appointment (and consultation) away, Just make sure you’re putting your hair in the right hands!”
