Being an Extension Model is a great opportunity for both the you and your stylist. The model (you) receives the service at an extremely discounted rate, while the stylist is able to gain both knowledge and experience. Being an Extension Model is sometimes half the cost of seeing one of our experienced stylists. Let’s get into what being a model means and if you would be a good fit.
Who would be providing the service?
The stylist you see will be certified in The Grace Hand Tied Method, which is the form of Hand-Tied Extensions we use at our salon. They will have completed the required courses and have hours of practice on a mannequin head. The only difference is that you may be one of the first real people they are trying this method on.
Will I still receive custom coloring and cutting?
Yes! The Extension Stylist in-training will provide all of the same steps of the service as the experienced stylists do. They will still custom color and cut your hair for seamless blending.
Do you have the extra time?
Extension Stylists in-training can sometimes take twice as long as an experienced stylist. On top of that, you sometimes need to come back in for adjustments between normal reservations. It is important to know this and ensure you could fit this into your schedule.
Are you ok with it not being perfect?
Again, these stylists are not experienced which is why they are accepting models. We ask that you be patient and understanding if there are certain things not up to our usual standard.
So what are you paying for?
In most model situations you are just paying for the hair, which lasts 9 months. If a stylist is extremely new, we also include the custom coloring on us as well. You will have to invest in move up reservations and maintenance following your initial application.
We greatly appreciate all of our guests who commit to being Extension Models. Majority of the time, the application is seamless and the guest is very pleased. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know.
