The WBR Story
Hi, I am the WBR FOUNDER Meg @stylingwithmeg just like many stylists I started out 16 years ago as an assistant at my first salon. I was so excited to be there 40 hours a week until I got my first paycheck and realized I was making $2 an hour. Drowning in student loans and bills friends and family told me to give up and focus on a real career. I made it my goal not to give up. I went back to the salon and realized the top stylist was an extension and color specialist. She had beautiful long hair, worked 3 days a week, and made thousands of dollars a week.
I knew I needed to add extensions to my service menu ASAP. Within 6 months I was able to change the path of my career. I was able to go BOOTH RENT and was on track to make over 100k a year.
Fast forward to 2015 and 1000 extension clients later I opened my own extension salon with 22 stylists. Clients started wanting sew-in extensions and I was excited to offer them the NEW CLASSIC Beaded Row Foundation. I immediately knew something was wrong my clients were constantly complaining about
- Tension sores
- Weft corners lifting
- Sewing coming undone
- Beads slipping out
- Only lasting 3-4 weeks
Clients were non-stop calling for redos. I was mortified my career and reputation I had spent years building was unraveling as fast as the wefts I was applying.
One day one of my favorite clients told me she was sick of the redos. What can we do????
I told her I would evaluate every issue and come up with a solution.
That night I went home and spent hours coming up with the WBR FOUNDATION trying to create a safe and secure foundation for my extension clientele.
I called my mom and told her I had created something special that the industry had never seen before. I knew my clients were going to be obsessed with it.
I went back to the salon and started applying the WBR FOUNDATION on all of my clients. It worked NO MORE REDOS! Every issue I had faced -WBR solved. My clients were excited and happy they said the application felt lighter and more comfortable. There was less natural shedding than I have ever seen with other sew in foundations!
When weft education became the most sought after technique I knew I had to share my love of WBR with the industry. If I was struggling with these issues I knew other stylists would be too! I made it my mission to educate and elevate the industry with integrity. I believe the 8 weeks after is just as important as when the client leaves the salon! I love watching our TRIBE GROW. We currently have 1000's of happy clients and stylists!
