The Journey of Our Hair
The journey of our hair from its original life existing on the human head, to the point of being sold as a top quality bespoke product for use in extensions, wigs and hair pieces is long and arduous. Sourced from across the world, all of our hair is hand picked and purchased in its raw form, with only the finest, cuticle correct hair being selected. Following the selection process, every strand of hair then undergoes an in-house procedure – often referred to as ‘working’ the hair, this includes: washing, conditioning, drying, and finally being double-drawn into its precise lengths.
As well as the fundamental working process, we also specialise in lifting and colouring vast quantities of hair in order to maintain a generous healthy stock, creating a diverse range of colours from jet black through to platinum blonde. Each and every procedure of this time consuming work is undertaken by us in our workshop, and carried out with our own hands, no machines… no tricks. All of the hair is kept on our premises throughout the process and is only handled by fully trained hair specialists to guarantee that the highest levels of quality control are maintained.
We like to encourage all of our clients (especially new), where possible, to make an appointment to visit our workshop. Not only does it offer them the opportunity to view our vast stock of beautifully finished hair, but they will also witness first-hand some of the highly skilled crafts we employ in our work. Tasha Jacks provide an open and consultative environment that we hope you will find useful and supportive. We are available by telephone and email to answer any questions you may have.
Tasha Jacks European Hair continues to be our biggest seller and most popular hair range. Largely from Italian and Spanish origin this hair typically has a beautiful natural body wave and silky soft texture. From natural dark brown to white blonde, and everything in between, this hair is the perfect match for those with a natural movement in their own hair type, and hugely versatile in terms of general styling. With regular professional maintenance (recommended every 4 – 6 weeks), and the use of Tasha Jacks hair extension products, the longevity of our European hair is estimated at up to and beyond 6 months.
Sourced from across the East Slavic nations: Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, our Russian hair range remains our most exclusive. Characteristically very different to European, this hair is typically naturally straight therefore perfect for those wishing to match their own (straight) hair or specifically seeking to achieve a more linear style. Although priced at a premium, this exquisite hair type is silky soft in texture, and remains the ultimate in hair extension decadence. With regular professional maintenance (recommended every 4 – 6 weeks), and the use of Tasha Jacks hair extension products, the longevity of our Russian hair is estimated at up to and beyond 6 months.
Owing to our family’s long history with hair collectors across the world, we are able to boast a healthy stock of hand picked, beautifully naturally tight curly hair. Whilst our European hair range caters well for the majority of hair types, from gentle to strong body wave, it is not suitable for those individuals with very strong spiral or corkscrew like curly hair. Where these individuals are concerned our Curly range is simply perfect! Although naturally slightly coarser in texture to European or Russian hair, still beautifully shiny, robust and most importantly… will not lose it’s natural curl. It is worth noting that due to the nature of very curly hair, general maintenance can be more challenging than other hair types. Please seek advice and guidance from a qualified hair extension professional prior to application. With regular professional maintenance (recommended every 4 – 6 weeks), and the use of Tasha Jacks hair extension products, the longevity of our Curly hair is estimated at up to and beyond 6 months.
From Chinese origin, Tasha Jacks Asian hair is competitively priced and considered our economy range. Whilst this hair cannot be compared in terms of quality with our European, Russian or Brazilian range, it provides an excellent alternative for individuals seeking short-term solutions, a one off occasion, or perhaps trying extensions for the first time. Typically this hair is found to be very straight, with a glassy silicon finish. Tasha Jacks Asian Hair longevity is estimated at approximately 6 – 8 weeks.
