The Story Behind Voice of Hair

Share this and help a friend SLAY!

I’m so tired!!!  I’m TIRED of spending thousands of dollars on hair extensions that don’t last more than one install (in 2012 I spent $1,200 on Hair Extensions for about 6 bundles of hair and then spent another $800 in 2013). I’m TIRED of spending hours in a salon, only to walk out dissatisfied with the end results. I’m also tired of spending money each month on hair products that don’t actually work on my hair!

Over the years I guess you could say that I developed a rare type of anxiety, specifically relating to getting my hair done. Since 2001 I’ve lived in 7 states (Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, North Carolina and Texas) and one other country. Since I didn’t grow up learning how to manage my own hair, I had to find a stylist in each of the places I lived in. Every time I would try a new stylist I would obsess about the appointment in the days prior, trying to gather as many data points and looking for traces of their portfolio on Google, YELP, Facebook or Instagram. I’d ask questions to friends or family who referred me such as: are they scissor happy, do they double book clients, do they yank hair out when blow drying? Sounds pretty crazy right? It was. However, the reason why I had all of these concerns was because I had several bad experiences that made me skeptical of all professionals, including: a hair cut when I asked for a trim, a head full of grease when I asked for a silk press or loose tracks the first week after I wash my hair extensions.

As a result, I created Voice of Hair to highlight the best hair professionals, up and coming hair care brands and highest quality hair products.  I don’t want anyone to ever have “hair anxiety” or go through the scenarios I mentioned above. My goal is not to tear down brands or stylists that didn’t work for me. Instead, I want to help the best of the best rise to the top. With your help, I know Voice of Hair can help other women too.
