Hair Originals has launched a Direct-To-Consumer platform that sells high-quality hair extensions at low prices. Mr. Jitendra Sharma established fair pricing and grew to become one of India’s leading hair extension brands.
What distinguishes Hair Originals from other brands?
Hair Originals rose to prominence in the great market of Paris, where it began. Aside from its loyal customers, the company collaborates with salon partners all over the world.
Customers can get free hair extension installation from these salon partners. Hair Originals is a proud partner of prestigious hair training academies like Schwarzkopf and L’oreal. It is an official partner of Brazilian stylist Helder Marucci Master Class. There is no doubt that 100% Remi Indian hair is among the most expensive. Keeping this in mind, Hair Originals sources high-quality human hair from temples in southern India. It ensures the highest level of quality. They do not use any chemicals in the hair-processing process.
Along with quality, price is an important consideration. It determines whether or not the hair extensions are worthwhile to purchase. Mr. Sharma perceived a market monopoly because there was no competition at the time. Existing brands were making subpar hair extensions. Customers are charged two to three times as much by the brands. Their hair extensions were of poor quality as well. Hair Originals uses natural virgin Remi Indian hair, known for its rich texture, to create their hair extensions. It provides the most versatility and freedom in color, style, and maintenance.
