Creating a solid client base can sometimes feel overwhelming. We’ve learned that a huge part of growth in your business is working with like-minded individuals and companies…like us-with-you, and you-with-us; )
As stylists ourselves, we love providing the highest quality extensions to other Stylists, knowing that we fully stand by our product and would choose to use it on ourselves and our closest friends.
We love seeing all of your amazing work using our extensions and we want to do what we can to help you gain more clients through using Bombshell Extensions!
Here are 5 simple things you can do right now to grow your client base using Bombshell Extensions:
1: Promote that you install Extensions and that you use @bombshellextensions
First impressions are everything. Along with a beautiful feed of your work and some extension before/afters, in your text, tell your audience that you offer extensions: what kind, and other options. If you don’t write out that you do Extensions, some people may not know to ask for that as an option. Add specific text in your bio and/or website to get it into the readers’ mind that Extensions are part of your forte’.
Add a line in your Instagram bio like one of the following: (feel free to copy and paste any of these or create your own)
-“Extensions Specialist using @bombshellextensions”
-“Hair Extensions: using @bombshellextensions
-“Certified Stylist with @bombshellextensions” (more on getting certified below)
Also, we have GIFS for your IG stories! Search #bombshellextensions in the sticker tab to use any of your custom Bombshell GIFS!
2. Use Bombshell Extension Co’s free educational information:
We’ve found that it’s so important to give your client a lot of knowledge and take-home information before and after you install their extensions. If it’s a virgin extension client, there can be alot of questions and hesitation with a new hairstyle; including hair that’s not your own; )
Offering the client alot of information in the beginning and educating them on how-not-scary it is to take care of your extension hair at home is key to keeping them as a returning client and recommending you to their friends.
Use the tab on your website: Education-Free Downloads to use any of this info we’ve put together for you so all you have to do is send the client this link, or download these ready-to-print files to give them a hard copy and capture client signatures!
3. Promote and tag @bombshellextensions in your IG stories and posts, so we can repost you:
We LOVE seeing our Stylist customers using Bombshell hair and sharing images of their hair transformations. The more you tag us and show us your work, the more we can repost you and show it to all of our audience too; ).
A couple tips in getting reposted with us:
Get in the habit of always shooting a ‘before picture’ of your client. We love sharing side-by-side before/after pictures because it gives such a ‘wow’ factor to showcase all that extensions can do!
Try to shoot your images in natural light with little to no filter. We always want to show the extension hair color in the most true-to-color view.
Take your photos in front of a simple, minimal background with natural light. This will allow your work to be the focus, without having a distracting background or color.
4. Pin your images to Pinterest & we will repin them:
In our opinion, Pinterest is still one of our fav guilty-pleasures. We love scrolling over images of all the places we want to travel, home decor we want to buy, beauty routines we want to implement, AND of course, the hair we want to have next!
Pinterest is still a huge source of traffic for stylists posting images of their work, which in turn, are seen by a potential client wanting ‘that exact cut’ or ‘that exact color’.
The more consistently you post to Pinterest and tag @bombshellextensions, the more we can repin your images to our added audience, and more your work will live on the inter-webs; )
**QUICK PIN TIP:
Don’t stress about having to double upload all your images to Instagram and then to Pinterest, all you have to do is:
Click on the image on your Instagram that you want to ‘PIN’
Click the ‘…’ at the top left of your image
Click ‘Copy Link’
Open your Pinterest app
A little pop-up will show: “Save the Link you Copied to clipboard?”
Click that pop-up and add any additional text and pin to your desired Pinterest board! (the pop-up only shows for the first few seconds, so make sure to click it when you first see it)
It sounds like a lot of steps, but once you do it one time, it really is so easy and will help you getting your work in front of more people!
5. Take a Bombshell Education Course.
Truly the best way to ensure that you’re getting all you can out of Bombshell Extensions and allowing us to promote you as much as possible, is by taking one of our Bombshell Education Courses.
We offer Education Courses monthly, in different areas of the US. In order to be listed on our website, under our Stylist Locator tab, you must attend a Bombshell Education Course and become certified. We offer Hands-On and Demo Courses that will give you Bombshell Certification at the end of the course and instantly add our stamp of approval as an official Bombshell Extensions Certified Stylist.
