While it’s so common to see a bald man or one with a shaved head, there’s a lot of social stigma when it comes to female hair loss.
Hair extensions have come a long way since introduced to society by Egyptians. The innovation in the field has created a variety of products that are not just high-quality and more durable but more convenient and comfortable to wear, boosting the hair extensions market growth.
