What to Expect at Your Initial Installation Appointment

SO! You’ve booked your Initial Installation for the Hand-Tied Hair Extensions transformation of your dreams and you’re SO EXCITED (so are we!) but maybe you’re still feeling a little nervous about what to expect at that first appointment? We totally get it. But not to worry – we are going to take THE BEST care of you. Here’s what you can expect when you arrive at The Atelier.

When you arrive at The Atelier for your appointment, we’ll sit down and chat over a freshly brewed latté, giving us a chance to get to know each other and go over your responses to the questions we asked on the virtual consultation form. Together, we’ll take a look at your inspiration photos again so we’re all on the same page with regard to what you do – and don’t – love for your hair.

After we have a clear idea of your expectations, we’ll share our professional guidance as far as what is attainable for your first visit with us. Together, we’ll agree on a hair color game-plan for both your first and future appointments, and discuss both in-salon and at-home maintenance required to keep your color and extensions looking their best.

Then, the fun part: we’ll hand-select your hand-tied wefts from the hair wall in a variety of shades and tones to create a gorgeous multidimensional palette that will blend seamlessly with your natural hair!

Once we have a detailed plan in place and you are comfortable in your chair with your latté (or champagne!) and iPad, your artists will get to work!

We have a team of co-stylists who works both side-by-side as well as independently on all our guests and their extension hair. Typically, one artist will be devoted to customizing and conditioning your wefts, which allows another artist to concentrate on giving your natural hair the perfect complementary multidimensional color makeover and restorative treatment to prep for the addition of extensions. As your dream team, we pride ourselves on not only protecting the health and integrity of your hair, but in giving hair extensions makeovers that Pinterest and Instagram hair dreams are made of! 

As if finally having your dream hair wasn’t enough, here are a few other things you can look forward to enjoying at your appointment:​

  • A bright and airy, yet intimate oasis-like space
  • A Heyday Collective signature frothy coffee upon your arrival, or sparkling beverage of your choice: Perriér, rosé, or champagne
  • Gluten- and grain-free snacks and sweets
  • Lunch on us for appointments lasting longer than 5 hours
  • Bond-building agents in every lightening appointment to protect the health and integrity of your hair
  • Complimentary conditioning treatments at every appointment that include scalp massage, steamed towel, and aromatherapy
  • Salon exclusive, high-quality hair care products
  • Wifi and Apple device chargers
  • Exclusive rewards program to earn service dollars on every retail product purchase
  • A complimentary luxury extensions home care kit with your initial extensions installation
  • Holiday gifts, VIP client events, and more!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Heyday Hand-Tied family and can’t wait to pamper you! Get excited, because we are!
