Hair Extensions 'Hotter' Than Ever


No more worrying about singeing your hair extensions while baking cookies. A Dallas-based business known for its wigs and hairpieces is giving women the chance to let those extensions sizzle. (Continued below photo...)

Beauty & Hair
has just released the HD Heat Defiant Collection by easihair, hair extensions designed with a heat-resistant fiber withstanding 350 degrees that allows consumers to blow dry, flat iron and curl the extensions with heat tools.

Easihair’s new line has a smooth base made of ultra-thin monofilament ribbons that contain more hair than traditional extension systems. The construction allows the extensions to lay flat and smooth and contour the wearer’s head, a feature easihair says makes the extensions virtually undetectable and allows them to blend into the wearer’s hair seamlessly.

The extensions are available in several options, including those that add length and overall fullness, or extra body for those with fine hair. The hairpieces, available at extensions.com, range in price from $33.95 to $99.95.

Founded in 2000, Beauty & Hair houses the largest e-commerce hair shopping network in North America, including Wigs.com, HairExtensions.com, Hairpieces.com and FlatIrons.com.
