Ask the Expert – Lynzi McQueen

This week at Great Lengths HQ, we were lucky enough to catch up with Lynzi McQueen, a hair extension and style specialist at Russell Cowie Hairdressing in Glasgow, she revealed why she loves to use our pre-bonded extensions…

Tell us about you and your experience in the industry…

I’m currently a stylist at Russell Cowie Hairdressing, which is one of two salons that has achieved a Great Lengths Platinum rating in Scotland. I have been in the hairdressing industry for nearly ten years and worked with hair extensions for seven years.

The team at Russell Cowie Hairdressing is made of consummate professionals with over 20 years combined experience. We provide top quality hair dressing techniques such as custom colouring, hair extensions and complete re-styling.

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

With the growing popularity of hair extensions, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to train with Great Lengths. Great Lengths is a world leader in hair extensions and I knew my clientele, old and new, would love the quality of the hair, the colour matching results and the lifespan of the hair.

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

I think many clients are now opting for hair extensions as they can add colour, volume or even totally change a style. I feel people choose Great Lengths because of their reputation of delivering the best results and they soon become part of clients’ routine.

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?

My advice for new clients would be to come into the salon for our free consultation service. This allows us explain the process, evaluate the client’s hair, show examples and answer any questions the client may have about hair extensions.

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

During consultations many clients ask how long do the hair extensions last. By following Great Lengths’ simple extensions maintenance programme and aftercare tips, pre-bonded extensions can last up to five months.

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

I think many clients are now requesting extensions to add thickness to their hair rather than adding length. Lobs (long bobs) are continuing to be a popular trend and Great Lengths’ mirco bonds are perfect for adding discreet thickness to shorter hairstyles.

What has been your favourite Great Lengths transformation?

I don’t have a favourite as every Great Lengths transformation gives me job satisfaction. I get to hear problems people experience on a day-to-day basis and after the extensions are applied I love the positive feedback. I always take before and after pictures so the client can see the difference. The only bad thing about Great Lengths is that they are addictive – once you get them you can’t live without them.
