Shop For Experience First When Getting Hair Extensions... Don't Gamble with Your Money! Episode 25
Shop For Experience First  When Getting Hair Extensions... Don't Gamble with Your Money! #25 Ann Marie Walts 0:12 Hi, this is Ann Marie Walts . Welcome to my show and my website, this episode is going to be specifically geared towards you if you are looking for hair extensions. Now I'm going to just jump right into this. and say, do you know what some of the best questions are that you can ask when you want to get hair extensions, except for the question? How much will my hair extensions be? Now, if you're asking that and you haven't had a consultation, or maybe you've actually been given quotes by businesses that haven't seen you in person? Well, unless you like to gamble with your money, the best thing that you can actually research with, and about a salon that you are going to spend your hard earned money with? Here are the following questions. How much experience do you have providing hair extensions, or ask them are you certified. And if they response, then if you go in for a consultation, ask to actually see the certification. The reason why I'm sharing this with you is that unfortunately, it's not necessary to be certified to provide this luxury experience, which can be and it can be expensive. But as far as like how much and how expensive, when it comes to shopping, the word expensive is only relative to where you're at at the moment. But what I can tell you as a very, very, very experienced hair extensionist is that it is best to shop for experience first. Because if you go blindly into getting hair extensions, and you base it just on what it is that you think you can afford, you might be just taking a really big gamble with your money. Over the years, and I've been certified by six different companies since 2006. I have fixed plenty of poor applications, because either you just didn't know what to shop for, not your fault. Or in some instances, I've actually had a couple few clients over the years, say, You know what, I should have just come to you , Ann Marie, to begin with, but I didn't think I could afford you. And then what happened was I they came in, but only to have me remove the other option, and then had to pay for everything twice. So just really do your like research based on how much experience the business has in providing hair extensions, the frequency of how often do they provide hair extensions? And is it the main the main event like is it what they provide on a regular basis is a really good determining factor in your selection of spending your money when it comes to getting hair extensions, because if it's just like at the bottom of their menu, and there's not a lot of information about it, that usually speaks to the fact that they probably don't do it on a regular basis. So yes, hair extensions are beautiful, you know, and you know what, you don't need them. So it's a makeover experience that you want to be able to make sure that you're spending your money in the right place. And that you can just relax and feel confident and trust that you are going to get results. So in my instance, if you like what you see, those are the results that you can expect to achieve. And my process is that it is necessary to come in for a one-hour consultation. And we sit down, we have a conversation, I introduced you everything that it is that you can expect as far as how to take care of your extensions, what the expenses are going to be for either your one visit or maybe you're like most of my clients that like to stay in their hair ongoing for an annual basis. So and all of that is talked about because we talk about the money upfront at the consultation so that you know what to expect. So for more information, feel free to reach out to me at For all of your makeover needs. And if you've listened to my show previously, on other podcasts I do speak about marketing. And using your imagination, you ca
