From time to time we tell you what we think about all sorts relating to 'hair'....

Nurturing your natural hair in five easy steps, while wearing deliberately protective styling...

Lockdown, what lockdown? Our multiple award winning SimiWeave™ U part wig allows you to treat yourself with a new natural look, instantly...

Inspired by an article in the Guardian today (22 December 2017)(https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/dec/22/braids-weaves-pretence-women-fake-hair) to dig out this article, which we originally called 'Black women and wigs and weaves' and published in 2011....

As the US race debate crashes head first into the issue of black women wearing blonde hair and/or weaves, fuelled by Whoopi’s comments on a recent episode of The View () it’s time to throw in my two pennies’ worth....

It is official: as we continue to opt for natural hair styles in our masses, wigs, weaves and extensions are very much part of the mix.  Mintel’s recent US report revealed precisely what we’ve been harping on about for ages...

If you are a black girl or woman who:-

  • loves and uses hair extensions, has any ideas for new hair extension and hair care products, or is really creative when it comes to hair styling;

  • hates the idea and sight of weaves, wigs, lace fronts, etc., etc.;

  • is really into keeping the hair natural; and / or,...

I seem to have stumbled upon a hotly debated topic that divides women everywhere!  Who would have guessed that in addition to having  your bridesmaids wear the same gowns, that having them uniformly groomed (hair style, make up, jewellery and other accessories)...

You can now get a loan for a weave! A new 'weave loan store' has opened in Detroit! Or you can apply for a weave loan online.  Sigh! We guess they haven't they heard of the extremely affordable, quick, convenient, stunning and realistic...

Actually, what I really want to ask is ‘is there no romance if you can’t run your fingers through her hair?’ but that’s not quite as catchy, so apologies for grabbing your attention under false pretences!  But now that you are here, please do indulge me by letting me know... 

Media coverage of this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) exhibition in Las Vegas seems to have been dominated by two stories: (1) how the ‘selfie stick’ (or Quick Pod) is THE gadget for today; and, (2) how a Mr Wayne Fromm, has been shouting out that he was the one who invented the selfie stick...

I get asked this question sooooo many times, I thought I’d jot my response down in writing, once and for all! Yes, ‘U part wig’ sums up my invention and it makes sense that that is what all the copies out there (2,425 at the last count) are called. And yes, I did...

The U-part wig is a revolutionary type of wig design, invented by Ms Simi Belo in London, UK, in 2003. Belo had noticed that in an attempt to deliver realism, especially at the hairline at the front, existing wig brands who used the traditional oval wig cap were adding more ...

I took a HUGE plunge in bringing my invention to market. Thanks to phenomenol support from family and friends, and exhausting amount of hard work and tons of determination, I got there in 2004 and the SimiWeave™ was an instant success. The thanks, praises, compliments,...

‘Black women wear weaves and wigs only to emulate white women’. I hear this statement too often and it is a forever-debated subject, particularly amongst black people. In response, other than 'each to their own' I have just five things to say...

Just seen Chris Rock’s ‘Good Hair’ film, and it’s funny and a ‘must see’! Kudos to him for daring to publicly explore one of the most contentious issues amongst black men and women! Pity he didn’t dissect in detail the disgraceful and tired old notion that ‘good hair’ and ‘bad hair’ is the same as ‘straight’ and ‘nappy’...

They say, 'a change is as good as a break’. If so, why not have an instant hair makeover instead of a holiday ’? You’ve been really good at tightening your belt and cutting back on all your little luxuries, but now you desperately need...
