CELEBRITY HAIR EXTENSIONS: THE ROLE OF HAIR & COMPOUNDS IN HAIR EXTENSIONS FOR FILM PROJECTS

H&C has worked with wig makers and hairstylists for the film and theater productions since we started in the hair business. We first established our reputation in providing the highest quality hair for celebrity hair extensions and lace front wigs. The demands of the projects taught us the importance of color blending, movement and shine in all of our hair extension lines.
