#BlackFriday: Introducing Pride and Prestige Hair Ltd.

Apologies for the lack of posting, I'm in final year and atm I'm currently penning a 10K dissertation so blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. Talking of dissertations, it was my disso that sparked the inspiration for today's post. My dissertation is on natural hair and identity, and through research I've learnt that the vast majority of hair and beauty products marketed towards Black people, are sold by businesses which are run by people from other ethnicities- which is quite ironic and sad when you think about it as if that doesn't scream oppression, then I don't know what else does. One way that we can uplift and empower the our community is by reinvesting our money into our own communities and supporting Black-owned businesses, just as other races do. With that in mind, I am expanding the platform of #BlackFriday on #LAM to support Black-owned businesses. As there's no time like the present, without further ado I'd like to introduce you to a company called Pride and Prestige Hair.

Pride and Prestige Hair are a premium UK virgin hair company brand. The company is the brainchild of Emmanuela Koranchie and Delawoe Adjaklo. Pride and Prestige launched in 2012 after Emmanuela and Delawoe identified a gap in the market for affordable, sleek and luxurious hair that did not break the bank. The hair types available include Brazilian, Russian and Peruvian. Kinky Curly hair will also be available on the site soon. Hair is available to buy as a frontal, single extension weft or a bundle deal (multiple extension wefts).

If you're transitioning or natural, perhaps wigs may be more your cup of tea? If so, fear not as they cater to you natural sistas too. Their weave bundles can be bought and made into wigs. In addition to their wig making services, they also offer bespoke hair dyeing services at super affordable rates. All the hair they sell is singly drawn (i.e. taken from one donor's head), double-wefted and true to length. I can personally vouch for their wig making skills as I've purchased a few of their wigs and receive nothing but compliments (and shock my hair is a wig) each time I pop one one can assure you I shall be back for more. One of the things I hate most about virgin hair companies is customer service, but I have found Pride & Prestige's customer service skills to be top-notch. stay up to date with all things Pride and Prestige, make sure you follow them on Twitter and Instagram.
