Ask the Expert – Emma Jarvis

This week at Great Lengths HQ, we were lucky enough to catch up with Emma Jarvis, Owner and Salon Director at The Hair-Base Salon in Great Yarmouth, to see why she recommends Great Lengths pre-bonded hair extensions…

Tell us about you and your experience in the industry…

I’m the Owner and Salon Director at The Hair-Base Salon in Great Yarmouth and I have over twenty-one years experience in the hairdressing industry. In August 1999, I opened The Hair-Base Salon and since our inception, our friendly and professional team has remained fully committed to giving all of our clients a professional service backed by exceptional customer care.  This approach has been key in ensuring our long-term success and in building an established customer base. Due to demand, we now have an exclusive extension team, who are all trained to the highest standard to make sure that every client gets the true Great Lengths treatment.

What made you get into working with pre-bonded hair extensions?

I have worked with a couple of other extensions brands but it was Great Lengths that really stood out for me. From the support you are given with marketing, the education you receive and just the amazing quality of the hair, it was an easy choice to make.

Why do you think so many people are now choosing hair extensions to enhance their hair?

Many people are choosing hair extensions because they are so versatile. We have found that clients are not just having them to add length; we have client’s that have extensions to give their hair volume and help their hairstyles stay in shape for longer. We also have clients that add coloured extensions because they are scared of committing to a colour and don’t want to damage their hair.

For those readers who are yet to try Great Lengths but have always wanted to make more of their hair, what would your advice be?

For those who want to try Great Lengths but are unsure, my advice would be “Go For It!” You won’t be disappointed. Have a consultation and try just a few at first, but I can guarantee you will want more!

What’s the most common question you get asked about extensions?

The most common question I get asked is if they damage your hair. If they are correctly applied, which the Great Length training ensures, and they are maintained correctly, they don’t damage your hair. We offer complimentary maintenance checks for our clients, the only danger there is, wanting more hair!

What do you think the next trend in hair extensions will be?

For the warmer months I think clients will be opting for more subtle blondes and light brown extensions to lighten their hair in time for the holiday season.

What has been your favourite Great Lengths transformation?

I don’t have one favourite as I love every transformation! It’s very rewarding when you see a client’s face light up as they see the hair they have always wanted.

In particular I did enjoy creating our Great Lengths 2014 entries. We were finalists in two categories so I will always be proud of that work and loved the finished look. It was a great experience to take part in and we loved creating something different and thinking outside the box.
