Cerys and Andrew attended a Balmain training course to add yet another skill to their already pretty lengthy list of capabilities. I sat down and had a chat with them to find out a bit more about the service:
So, what did the course cover?
Andrew: To begin with we went through the origins of the company and Balmain’s core values. We then were shown and told how Balmain hair can be used and we went through both the application and removal processes.
Cerys and I both practised applying extensions, using different techniques and section patterns.
What are the benefits of Balmain hair?
Andrew: Balmain isn’t damaging; unlike other extensions there’s no glue involved. The bonds on the hair aren’t made using glue, the bonds are scientifically developed to mimic the keratin which is naturally found in hair.
You can use Balmain hair for volumising and thickening as well as for adding length to your hair. I think there’s a kin of stigma surrounding hair extensions thesedays and we want to move away from that. You can do so much with it. You can use extensions to add colour to your hair without the maintenance and commitment that comes with colouring your own hair.
Balmain hair is 100% natural hair and comes in a variety of colours and textures; straight, naturally straight (poker straight) and wavy which means you can customise your look to suit you.
Why did you want to become a Balmain extensionist?
Andrew: I’ve always wanted to do extensions, it’s another service under my belt and I love the idea of being able to offer more to my clients. I think extensions are going to really rise in popularity again and now I’ll be ready to meet that demand!
Cerys: I did a self-funded extensions course at a previous salon, I don’t want to just do one thing, I want as many strings in my bow as possible. The more things I do, the more I can see what it is that I want to focus on. Balmain is a leading extension brand and it’s great to work with such a high quality product.
