Initially I was going to write about something else today, but my Dad sent me this article that I was shocked to read! The article addresses growing issues with hair shops being burglarized! The article features “My Trendy Hair Place” salon owner Lisa Amosu who was robbed of $150,000 worth of hair! Lisa Amosu explains how the thieves knew exactly what they were going for and they did not touch the synthetic hair, cash register or any other valuables. Instead they went directly for what they knew to be the most valuable- the remy human hair extensions! The Hair extensions thieves go on to sell the hair on the streets or on Ebay at a discounted value.
I have to shake my head, I can’t believe the world has come to this- bootleg hair extensions? It just goes to show that hair extensions are on a constant rise! Hair extensions are no longer a product only worn by African Americans or super rich celebrities. Instead the market is growing across countries and races- so much that common hustlers are catching on to the trend!
