Sophie is a cosmetology student at International Institute of Cosmetology who loves working with hair extensions and is featured on Aqua Hair Extension’s fall promotions. Her work was discovered by the renown hair extension company through her Instagram post.

We got the opportunity to interview student Sophie Jahn on her feature. You can see her creation in pink in the below video.

Here are a few things we asked her about and her responses.

✨What was your inspiration?

My inspiration for the look was my love for springtime pastels mixed with inspiration from other stylists creating beautiful and bright rainbows within their work. I loved how the muted pastels came out, giving it a soft finish.

✨Why do you like working with Hair Extensions?

I love working with extensions and having even more control of color placement within my work, especially when working with fashion colors. It also gives the client more flexibility when it comes to changing their hair and it limits damage.

✨How did you like learning about Hair Extensions?

Learning extensions was a breeze with Ms Amber. She is very knowledgeable, and we were able to discuss and learn different techniques. I enjoyed learning how to color the extensions to see all the endless possibilities.
