Q.Will people be able to tell that I'm wearing a weave or extensions?
A. The majority of people who wear weaves and extensions want a subtle look, so with that being said, the hair must be styled properly. I'm able to give a natural look with the weave/extension techniques I do.
Q. What's the difference between weaves and extensions?
A.Weave hair is attached to a weft (some refer to wefts as tracks), and extensions can also be attached to a weft or done using a strand by strand method through either interlocking, keratin protein or micro-links to attach the hair.

Virgin Remy Hair can be used over and over again.The textures come: straight, wavy, curly.
