Owner, Extensionist, Mentor
Kelsey is the lead stylist, owner, ceo, curator, mentor and whatever other hat you can give her for muse. After searching for an extension method to bring to her blonde clients she found Danielle K White who is the creator of Natural Beaded Rows. She spent two years going back and forth to Laguna Beach, California to specialize in Natural Beaded Rows to be able to bring the best method back to British Columbia. Two years later as methods developed she decided to advance her skill set and became the first stylist on Vancouver Island to be certified in Invisible Bead Extensions and The Mane Method. Fast Forward 4 years and she has created her own method that is customizable to her clients.
She believes in believable, healthy hair with effortless movement, nobody will know you’re wearing extensions.
Facts about Kelsey: mom of 2, loves coffee, obsessed with growth, freepeople is her favourite and designer shoes are her weakness.
Mckenzie joined muse and worked under Kelsey for a year learning all the tricks of the trade in regards to hand tied hair extensions. She is the master of coloring extensions and specializes in lived in blondes + brondes. She understands what it’s like having fine limp hair and feeling like you can’t do anything with it. She has been wearing hand tied hair extensions for almost two years now and loves the volume she gets.

Q & A
Where do you get your hair from?
We exclusively use hair from Covet and Mane. It is ethically sourced, silicone free and comes in wavy and straight blends.
We are the only salon on the island using it
Why are you more expensive than other local places?
Our initial installs include color for your hair, color for the extension hair and 4 full size hair products to take home. Many salons “install price” is only for the hair and the install. We are the only place locally with access to Covet and Mane hair and the hair is made by hand vs a machine. Our training is top of the line and we pride ourselves on the work we do. Secondary, our owner, was in an elite extension education program for two years vs a lot of extension courses these days are only 2 days long.
Methods we are certified in?
Natural Beaded Rows, Invisible Bead Extensions, The Mane Method and Bellami Methods. We have learnt from artists in California, Vancouver and Atlanta.
All of clients come back for maintenance every 7-10 weeks. We FULLY remove your extension hair, wash, treat and reinstall every single move up.
Why are some move ups $60 at other salons?
Some methods teach to simply open the bead up and push it back up to your scalp. Doing an extension move up this way takes way less time. With our method we fully remove your extensions, wash your scalp , treat your extensions and reinstall in a slightly different spot.
