Hair extensions have always been shrouded with a dark cloudy shadow and the jury is out on whether this is justified or not! But 1 thing for sure this is a trend that is going to stay!

Why? Well – with the revolution of take home styling appliances that nowadays heat up to over 200’c, the ever-growing market of home colour, styling and poor quality cleansing products – Our Hair is just not growing!!! Well, it is…. But its breaking off at either the same rate or faster so this will give the illusion our hair is just not getting to the length we desire! Now we are the millennial generation, we can everything at the touch of a button – either next day or even faster, so like our amazon shopping…. We want long hair like YESTERDAY!!

So how did this all start, I know most under 18’s will probably believe it was the Kardashians that invented extensions and yes, they have a huge hand in how popular they are but it all started many moons before….

The idea of hair weaves and extensions first came about in the early days of Ancient Egypt, where men and women utilized extensions in their hair to portray a more elegant appearance. Long Straight, silky hair was a sign of wealth as many of the poor had it cut off for work purposes and many of the slave women also, to give to the rich with a gene pool not quite so generous in hair department the lush locks they desired.

By the late 17th century, wigs in various shapes and sizes became a latest fashion trend. Hair weaves did not grow interest until the 1950s, but even during that time celebrities had been the only ones using them. When the “long, disco-haired” era evolved there started to become a widespread of hair weave. Since that era, hair Extension have only become more popular and now readily available to all of all budgets.

So, Tape…. Now this has been around for a while, but like anything its needed to run its course of getting fine-tuned and made impeccable before hitting the mass market!
