Fun fact: I’ve been trying to slowly transition to natural hair for years. I wore braids all throughout college, and opted for a few sew-in weaves post-grad. My hair was super thick, it was getting super long….aaaaand I of course had that one sew-in that completely broke off most of the hair on the back of my head. 5 years of progress were wiped out with one, awful sew-in experience.
While on the hunt for protective hair styles, I stumbled upon Swanky Mane. Swanky Mane is a locally owned and operated company that provides high-quality, luxury hair extensions at incredibly affordable prices.
It’s rare that I find salons that do extensions that can cater to all types of hair, but no matter what your hair texture is or what ethnicity you are, you’ll be able to snag some Swanky Mane extensions for yourself. The owners of Swanky Mane have over a decade of experience in the hair extensions industry and have worked with multiple installation methods (bonded, woven, microlink, etc.)
They currently sell and install high-quality Bohyme hair, which comes in a multitude of colors and textures. They invite their clients to visit their salon for an initial consultation, and they can match your hair perfectly to a set of extensions. After you’re matched, they order and custom tailor the hair for you, and within a week you can return to their salon and have the hair installed.
Their salon is located in McLean, VA, however, they are able to travel to their clients in the D.C. area. Swanky Mane also offers great deals from time to time, make sure to follow them on Instagram to keep up with their latest offerings!
