Studio She carries only top quality extensions. Our salon guests receive the full lifespan of the methods that require maintenance. This is typically one year or more...


Note from Christina: when it comes to sourcing the best hair extensions for my clients, I prefer to use small hair importers that import direct. This way I have some control of the process and the products I receive and use in the salon.
