$10,000 For Extensions?!

Posted in General, Hair Extensions, Wigs in the news on June 16th, 2009 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

For those that covet long lush hair in the world of ceelebrity-dom, apparently money is never an issue. Clients of famed “Tress Goddess,” and hair augmentation specialist, Mahri Martens-Tomas pay upwards of $10,000 for a head of perfect hair.  The extensions have to be touched-up or reapplied every 3-4 months and many clients will pay not only the price for the applications, but also travel-fare in order to get to Martens-Tomas’ in Beverly Hills. Clients fly from all over to have these luxurious extensions. The charge exactly? A hefty $5,000 for the first once and $4,000 for each additional ounce.  Most average clients will get around 3 ounces but it’s not unheard of to add up to 8 ounces of hair for the fullest, thickest hair a client can get.  Some people will need just a handful of extensions to fill a bald spot and some might just want to fill their entire head just for their own enjoyment.

What exactly makes this hair from Martens-Tomas worth the price?  Firstly, the adhesive she uses are custom depending on the need of the client.  Not to mention, they are specially formulated in general for an adhesive that’s very gentle and can withstand months of washing and drying without destroying the hair cuticles.  She adjusts the adhesive for each client depending on if they hit the gym and shower regularly or depending on the hair type if it’s oily or dry. Aside from custom adhesives, Martens-Tomas only uses European hair for her work. The exclusive provider she buys from originally provided hair for wigs for all the royals in Europe.  Compared to the cheapest hair for sale out there, this hair is 10x more expensive.  None of the hair Martens-Tomas uses is dyed.  At times, clients may need to wait a few months to get the right type of hair and length.

All I can say is, for those without $10k to spare, thank goodness for Hairdo products. ;)   The limits for luxury consumption is definitely boundless!

JLo Obsessed About Wigs

Posted in General, Wigs in the news on June 2nd, 2009 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

It’s no secret that stars love to change their hairstyle on a whim with the help of wigs.  Triple-threat Jennifer Lopez is among one of the more known celebs that often steps out with new locks. She’s known for her sometimes over-the-top extravagance in spending as well as her flashy style.  It’s no wonder she’s one of Donatella Versace’s favorite celebs to dress. JLo changes her hairstyle so much that it’s rumored she has built an entirely separate room in her New York mansion just for her hairpieces.

Her actual hair length is a medium bob that’s something like this picture

“Jennifer is obsessed with changing her hairstyle and has built a separate room for her wigs in her mansion. She keeps the door locked and hardly ever lets anyone in the room, not even her husband Marc (Anthony),” a source quoted from femalefirst.co.uk

The sourced adds that “The shelves on the walls are full of plastic heads holding the best hairpieces money can buy. Her actual hair is shoulder-length. Her wigs allow her to experiment with different looks and styles without having to have extensions or grow her own locks,”

If this is true, she really is a dedicated chameleon of image. It must be great to wake up everyday and decide what person to be!
