Why Should You Choose Virgin Hair Extensions?

Virgin hair extensions can come from many places around the world. Depending upon the origin of the hair, the quality, type and durability is different. The best hair extensions start with the highest quality. This is why we never sacrifice quality, take pride in the superb quality of our hair extensions.

What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed hair, with the cuticle still intact. It is free from dyes, perms, bleaches and hard washes. Our hair comes from a single donor. Because Virgin hair is natural, be sure to treat it with the same care and attention that you give your own hair.
