Xtension Envy–The Hair Extension Salon is the first-of-its-kind franchise model offering the complete hair extensions experience: premium extension installation and maintenance services, all under one roof. Combined with a monthly hair extension maintenance program, the concept is disrupting an entire industry. Gone are the days of having hair extensions installed in one salon and then having to find another to adeptly color, blend, and style the new hair. Founded by serial entrepreneur Scott Lewandowski and his wife Christine in 2018, Xtension Envy is experiencing rapid growth. Leveraging Scott’s background in operating multi-unit businesses including martial arts centers and chiropractic centers and Christine’s time in the beauty industry as a corporate trainer and stylist, the couple seized an opportunity to take a fragmented segment of the beauty market and bring it all together. After four years of operating the first Xtension Envy salon in Scottsdale, they have decided to bring the business opportunity to other entrepreneurs as a turnkey franchise offering.
“Xtension Envy was the first hair extension membership salon in the United States, so it makes sense that we are the one to now offer the full continuum of franchise offerings,” said Scott Lewandowski, CEO and co-founder of Xtension Envy. “We are the most experienced hair extension franchise company with a leadership team that is beyond compare.”
The company recently signed an Area Representative with 25 years’ experience in franchising sales/operations in multiple franchises. Xtension Envy awarded the father/daughter team of Chad and Makenzie Everts with 40 units in three states: Arizona, Utah and Colorado.
“My daughter Makenzie has been a long-time consumer of hair extension services,” said Chad Everts. “When she experienced the unique and superior services provided by Xtension Envy, she was convinced that the model would change the way hair extension services would be delivered. Makenzie approached me with the opportunity of investing and partnering with her on this new venture. As a 25-year veteran in the franchise space, I was immediately sold on this game-changing, ground floor opportunity to be a part of the billion dollar, rapidly growing segment of the hair extension industry.”
Chad Everts added, “The deciding factor for us to get involved was the Xtension Envy team itself. We were impressed by the comprehensive infrastructure already developed by Scott and Christine, to the depth of industry knowledge, expertise, and franchise experience of the corporate support team. We were blown away with what the model has accomplished in such a short period of time. We feel lucky and proud to be a part of this emerging national brand.”
The global hair extension market is valued at $5.8 billion and is expected to reach $13 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 13% between 2021 and 2026 (Source: Arizton.com). Fueling the demand are increasing consumer adoption of newer hairstyles, the rising prevalence of hair loss and alopecia, and an aging population.
