The human hair extension specialist recently returned to her hometown of Perth after working in the US for 14 years as a stylist, where she still owns a salon in Orange County that she visits every 10 weeks.

Ms Kendrick said her hair lounge on Stirling Highway embodied her only rule for hair care: every head of hair is unique so customise your treatment.

‘Every single person is different, and what you need might not be what someone else needs,’ she said. ‘You’ve got to make people feel safe with what they want.’

Ms Kendrick has worn hair extensions for 16 years and said she had never lost a single strand of hair from it, despite myths that extensions were bad for you and more people needed to embrace their benefits.

‘I believe that Perth doesn’t like a lot of change therefore they need fresh ideas,’ she said.

‘Fashion is supposed to be fun, it’s only temporary.’
