Head to wherever you stream your podcasts to listen to this episode and learn why the biggest player in extensions is turning to call them hair solutions.

“We’re probably one of the only, if not the only, organization that’s really stuck, at least up until this point, in one category and really sought to become the experts. And you know, we’re learning and adapting every day but having than many brands that we are able to be associated with really helps us to be able to think differently and a little more broadly about that particular category.”

“We’ve also taken that stance that we want to be the ones that are setting the bar, setting the criteria, of what is ethically sourced and what’s not. And we actually invite other competitors, and others in the industry, to come along for the journey. We actually share with them what we’re doing, and how we’re doing it because we would love all of our competitors to be doing the same thing.”

“For those that this is an important thing, which hopefully it is for many, you know there are opportunities to really dig in and understand what’s being done to make sure that product is delivered in a way that you would expect from a company.”

“So outside of the ethical sourcing and sustainability, I find that the other thing really to probably pay attention to, which I think most already do, is just making sure that you understand the quality of the product. Because there are a lot of different terms being used by manufacturers of why their product is better than another.”
