The sweetest revenge of all times is to flaunt with gorgeous hair. Heads will turn from all corners, brows will definitely raise and eyes will surely roll at you as fast as quicksilver. Yes, you will unquestionably get even with your enemies. It's your style and they can't match it. Plus, you don't have to break your perfectly polished nails. You don't have to worry if you can't style your hair yourself, most of us honestly can't. However, Allure Concepts, one of Jamaica's pristine hair paradises, will surely get you on your way to making chic and gallant hair statements for your reprisal.

Based in Portmore, the hair haven is operated by Alicia Wallace, a genie who knows how to work magic in your hair without waving a wand.

The self-taught hair expert specialises in non-adhesive installation of hair extension. Yes, this means no more glue, no more tangles and a sassier you. Falling in love with styling hair at 14 years old, Wallace opted to make the craft her hobby. Today, it is her bread and a task she executes superbly.

"I have perfected my own sew-in techniques and these have allowed me to achieve the most natural looking results without the use of adhesives. For example, my versatile sew-in, which allows you to do a high ponytail and many other styles within a single install. Also, there is my flip-over part. With this one, you can wear multiple parts within the single install," Wallace explained to Flair.

 

BENEFITS OF SEW-INS

 

It's no secret that women usually pay the price of being beautiful with a little pain. And it usually pays off with your glamorous appearance, right? But this is changing with better days ahead, through Allure Concepts. With Allure Concepts, you can certainly make your comeback with less beauty torture prices to pay. For Wallace, and with all confidence you will also agree, "Beautiful hair and healthy hair can both coexist," with no added stress.

"You must be diligent with their choice of hairstylists [because] not all hairstylists are aware of the dangers of using adhesives. Traction alopecia (gradual hair loss caused by constant tension or strain being applied to the hair) and allergic reactions are two common problems associated with using and overusing adhesives," she said.

Traditionally known as the protective hairstyle, sew-ins last longer. In addition to this, Wallace advises that with good hair practices, the chances of your natural hair growth can also be increased. This means you must keep your hair underneath the extension clean and moisturised.
