New Luxury Hair Extensions

Now we are proud to announce the addition of another premium brand to our range.
Remy Couture Premium 100% Human Hair Extensions by Sleek is a new offering of the very best in hair extensions from a company with a long pedigree. This new brand is part of the company’s drive to create more top-end salon friendly luxury hair extensions and we expect more in the same vein from them soon.
Festive Season Special: Recession Beater (Dec 2011)
Short days; grey, wet, dreary, cold, short days. . . It’s that time again unless you are one of our customers who is fortunate enough to live in a tropical paradise. As winter sets in, so does the recession, it takes so much more to fuel a car or heat a house but it is harder to find or keep a job. Almost everybody is making cuts somewhere in their budget. Here are some of the recession-beating ideas that our customers have come up with.
1. Using clip-ins instead of applied extensions: As clip-ins are removed and hung up before going to bed, they do not go through the wear and tear that comes with pillow contact and subsequent morning brushing so they look great for longer.
2. Making DIY custom clip-ins: Of late, our customer-care lines have been kept busy advising on how this is easily done. Of course, the customers can choose much better quality hair (No manufacturer makes (real) Remi quadruple-drawn clip-ins) and pay less for their superior ‘custom’ clip-ins than they would for regular quality off-the-shelf ones
3. Switching to better hair: This is not as silly as it sounds. When you work out the cost of truly superior hair such as Bohyme Remi that can be used and reused with moderate care for 6 months (longer with good care) versus buying cheaper hair every 4-6 weeks and paying your stylist more often too, many people find that the ‘expensive’ hair is better value. . .
4. Switching to cheaper hair: The latest man-made high-temperature fibres are getting better to look at and to touch. Our range of Futura wefts has never been so popular and we will be increasing the range over the next few weeks.
5. Going cheap and cheerful: Old favourites like Jumbo braids and Afro-kinky twists are doing very well right now. Staples like our low-priced Elysee Star Dreads also continue to go strong
As the world’s financial problems continue, our customers continue to look their best, thanks to a little ingenuity
The blog that tells you how to recreate the hair style of the hottest celebrities continues. So far, we have featured Beyonce, Cheryl Cole, Megan Fox, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
Autumn Newsletter (Oct 2011)
It’s officially Autumn and the leaves are changing colour. Here in England we have had a brief heatwave that kept the trousers short and the skirts mini for the last week of September but all good things come to an end and the time has come for cooler weather fashions.
As we dust off our jackets and air our cardigans, we can wear our hair down and longer is once again better. It’s cool enough to wear seriously ‘big’ hair without getting all steamy and our Autumn newsletter shows you what’s hot when the weather’s cool.
Our new Magic Tone line of wefted hair extensions from the creators of Cinderella Hair is proving to be very popular as ladies look for great quality that will last longer and not cost an arm and a leg in these troubled times. Designed to be easy to heat-style and colour, this hair is being snapped up by stylists and end users alike. It’s on top of our what’s hot chart this edition.
Styles are changing as the weather cools and moving from up-dos, bobs and short wigs to looks that are longer and fuller and include long braided Expression and Kanekalon Jumbo braids, full human hair extensions (permanent and clip-in) and long wigs.

Summer! Hot weather special on short wigs (July 2011)
Then followed that beautiful season… Summer…. Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow –
Longfellow must have time-travelled to Glastonbury when he wrote that. Magical light and new landscapes of mud that look like they have been trampled by armies of children in wellies? It is definitely the season of music festivals. Glastonbury’s past but loads more to come with Hole in the wall, V and Wickerman being some of our customers’ favourites. Right now bright colours are flying off the shelves and Elysee Star dreads sales are peaking. This happens around this time every year so we’re prepared for the rush but it’s always seems crazier each year. . .
Away from the festival scene, shorter, cooler styles are doing very well. We have introduced a range of short wigs from LATrend; Bang-on-trend short styles inspired by Keri Hilson, Rihanna, Pink, Kelly Rowland and Halle Berry, many of these come with a sharp streak of colour that is perfect for summer. They are great value already but we have made them even better with a money off voucher in this newsletter.
