Hotheads Hair Extensions is a beloved extensions brand with over 18 years of experience in the category. But just because they are one of the most known brands for hair extensions doesn’t mean they don’t work to continue to stay at the top of their game by working to improve their quality, manufacturing and packaging.
Lindsay Rumple, Vice President of Hotheads Hair Extensions, joined Volume Up to talk about the steps that the brand has taken to make sure they are pushing the category forward and not staying stagnant.
Lindsay not only discusses her story in the industry, Hotheads origins and beliefs but also drops all the insight on the brands’ new Premium Weft Collection. With their guiding pillars, Hotheads is looking to be better for stylists and consumers.

“With Hotheads, they were the first to be in tapes and tape-ins right? And tape-ins are still at the end of the day, they’re still the money maker. Two reasons why. One, it’s fast and there’s quick money to be made. So when you’re dealing with time and money with stylists, it’s a win-win. So that alone really put hotheads on the map.”
“What if we go back to the drawing board? What would really be important to our hottie squad community? And so there were three areas that we had to look at. One, we had to look at the grade of hair. So we had to actually look at what quality is. Number two is that we had to look at our manufacturing process. What areas of opportunity from smart technology are available? And then three, we had to look at our packaging. First appearances is everything. That’s where you’re going to, you know, gain, but most importantly what are we doing to be more sustainable.”
“We’re calling all stylists. You want to learn and learn to make more money. It’s about money and you fit it into your existing time. We have a place for you and I think that’s what is just, what is missing, is being a part of this community and that’s what our hottie squad community is all about.”
