How The Egyptians Began The Hair Extensions Revolution

We live in an age where all the information we need is at our fingertips. The technological revolution has changed the way we live forever with more exciting and fascinating inventions entering our way of living every day.

Some people believe this generation is the most intelligent the world has ever seen. All I can say is, have you not read the Twitter ramblings of Donald Trump, seen Joey Essex in action or watched The Jeremy Kyle Show! Talk about being a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

For me one of the most intelligent cultures the world has ever seen is the Egyptians. Not only are they credited with creating modern language through the use of hieroglyphics, they also gave us eye make-up, dams, the calendar, bowling, high heels, paper and condoms! What a clever lot they were.

However, arguably their greatest achievement came with the creation of hair extensions. Yes, the wonderful weave was actually conceived in the time of Cleopatra 3,400BC. Of course the wigs weren’t of the same quality as today’s luxurious Brazilian virgin hair extensions. Human hair and sheep’s wool was the main source of material. And they would be attached by using wax from bees, trees and plants. Both men and women were big fans of the weave in Egyptian times, but only the wealthy pharaohs, kings and queens could really afford such luxury.

Since then the likes of Queen Elizabeth I and King Louis XIII have been staunch supporters of the weave. Not forgetting Hollywood royalty. But it’s only been over the past few decades where hair extensions have become affordable for everyone. Now everyone can go for the big is beautiful look – and not have to take out a second mortgage to do so.

At Beyond Hair we offer Curly Virgin Brazilian Hair starting from just £50. And our straight and wavy virgin hair begins from just £45. Both options give women the chance to look amazing without breaking the bank.

Brazilian hair extensions are one of the most wanted types of natural hair extensions in the world. They have retained their popularity due to the fact it can blend with all hair types, giving off a natural look, which will last a long time with good care.

We also offer Peruvian hair extensions which come directly from consenting donors in Peru. Our Peruvian hair is 100% natural and comes in a variety of straight, curvy or wavy. Starting at £55 for straight and wavy and £65 for curvy, you have a range of options open to you.

Should I go for Brazilian or a Peruvian weave?

Brazil is famed for its football, carnival atmosphere and its sexy samba beats. Peru meanwhile is probably most known for giving us Paddington Bear. However, both countries are leading the world for hair extensions.

Unfortunately, not all women are blessed with fabulous hair, but that shouldn’t prevent us from looking anything short of glorious. Hair styles come and go, and the “in” colours change like the seasons, but there is one accessory that is not going away any time soon … extensions.

Brazilian and Peruvian hair are the hottest weaves on the UK market and it’s easy to see why. Boasting a mixture of curly, wavy and straight styles to choose from, these weaves are thick, bouncy and can cope with everything the British weather can throw at them. It begs the question, why wouldn’t you have one? 

However, how do you know what weave to go for?

Brazilian hair

Brazilian extensions are soft, naturally wavy and very durable. Because of those attributes it can fit any style. They are extremely luxurious, with a lot of body and natural shine.

Thanks to the density of virgin Brazilian hair, you may not need as many bundles as you would normally to create a full look. It’s also less likely to frizz than other hair types due to its natural density.

Brazilian hair is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful types available. It is a perfect solution for those who crave flawless, long glistening tresses but are fed up of having weak or short hair.

The major advantage of this weave is its low maintenance. It is very easy to style, making it a popular choice for those with not a lot of time and a lot of responsibilities.

Peruvian hair

Over the past few years Peruvian hair has been gaining ground on its South American counterpart, and it’s easy to see why. It may be coarser than the Brazilian variety, but Peruvian hair offers far more colours. And because of its natural fullness and body, fewer bundles are needed to complete a full weave.

Peruvian hair is one of the most versatile products on the market. Whether you are going for a sleek and straight style or seeking something shorter and edgier, it presents you with the opportunity to experiment. Its versatility also means you can spend less time primping and more time on enjoying life.

Given the correct amount of TLC, the Peruvian weave will last far longer than the alternative options and blends well with your own hair.

If you are looking to achieve a soft and natural look then Peruvian hair may well be your best option.
