Lauren (Hair Extension Specialist)
Lauren has been running her own successful business for some time, and is now delighted to join the team at Bon Vivant on a freelance basis (by appointment only). Lauren is trained and qualified in the Micro-Ring extension method widely favoured by celebrities, as there is no glue or chemicals involved, nor damage to your own hair. Many of Laurens clients report that their own hair has actually improved after wearing micro-ring extensions long-term.
"I am delighted to bring 'Lengths by Lauren' to Bon Vivant! Hair extensions are a passion and that's why I love my job. It's important to listen to what the client wants to achieve, whether its a completely natural look, or full on glamorous locks! I take great satisfaction in knowing that you as my client are happy with the results."
Hair extensions can be used to add length, thickness and volume to your own hair. A variety of colours can also be used to create highlights or an ombre/balayage effect without dyeing your own hair. Hair extensions can really transform your look and give you that extra confidence boost.
