Suppliers of Russian Hair Extensions

We are UK based suppliers of the finest quality Russian hair extensions on the market today. All our hair is 100% genuine Russian human hair that is full of luster and retains its elasticity meaning its quality is second to none. We pride ourselves in providing you with the highest quality hair available so unlike a lot of other ‘Russian’ hair on the market in the UK, our hair is never mixed with other hair types, yak, or synthetic materials.

Our hairs unique journey ensures its premium quality and assures it’s amazing long lifespan. The beginning of its journey starts with hair donors. Before hair is cut from the donor their hair is weaved into plaits to make sure the hair is cuticle correct (Remy). It is then only very lightly coloured (to ensure it retains maximum quality) and tied into colour bundles and cleansed for hygiene. It is only when this thorough process is complete that it comes to us for sale in the UK.

On arrival in the UK our Russian hair is checked and prepared by us to a very high standard. We double draw all our hair removing all shorter hairs for you. We then hold the stock ready for sale in loose bundles or we can provide a bespoke hand tipping service (I-tip/U-tip).

Due to our unique methods of hand blending we are able to blend multiple colours in each strand offering different degrees of highlighting from subtle to bold. We can also make bespoke colour blends to match specific samples. We hope our methods ensure that you can get a perfect colour match for almost anybody.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and products and sincerely hope to become your primary supplier of Russian hair extensions. We are 100% committed to customer service and quality and we believe you will be so satisfied with our products you will return with your custom again and again. Please contact us with any questions or queries and we will be very glad to help you in any way we can.
