Welcome to Diversity Hair!

Diversity Hair Blog

  • Exciting Changes!

    Incase you missed it on social media... Things took an unexpected but exciting turn here at Diversity Hair.

    After reducing our online offering after the initial EU decision, and the currency fluctuations that followed (see previous posts on our decision),  Jenna set up a small private salon studio to take on clients.

    Two months into running the new salon, Jenna was asked to join Prostyles Hair Ltd, as their office and Training Manager,  A company, she herself trained with back in the day and has worked with ever since.

    Needless to say, this was an opportunity she couldn't pass up.

    So where does this leave Diversity Hair?

    Well, the Diversity Hair site remains, and will showcase both Diversity Hair and Prostyles Hair Products, which are available to order as usual.  Jennas salon work and info on appointments is also here on the site.

    Jenna is in the process of creating some new and exciting training courses for Prostyles Hair, including Fusion, Pre-bonded, Microring, Tape wefts methods and the original Prohair method of extension installs.  If you are interested in some training, then contact Jenna via the site for more information.

    Born in 1998 Prostyles is one of the first single user methods of install for high quality synthetic extensions. They branched out to human hair shortly after this and the quality of their hair is extremely high.  Prohair and fusion applications are the most technically skilled hair extensions application methods.

  • Time for a new do!

    My studio is all set up and I've had a great response so far.

    What makes me different?

    * My studio is a small private space where you can have your hair done in peace (or listen to music), where my attention is on your hair and not on everything going on around me.

    * Free Tea, Coffee, Soft Drinks and sweeties :)

    * Trending services using the latest products from the UK and America, and specialising in vivid colouring and hair extensions.

    * I'm not just a hairdresser, I'm a fully qualified in Hair Extensions too, and I am a certified educator for Prostyles.

    * I also offer one to one training and workshops.

    * My prices are reasonable and tailored per service, not by hour, so you always have control over the price you pay.

    * I am 100% honest you with you.  If i don't think your hair is suitable for a service i will tell you.

    I offer free consultations, so if you have an idea for your hair, then get in touch!  I do different offers each month, so see what I can do for you :)

  • 2017 Changes

    So, last year ending up being quite dramatic for us.  Alot happened.

    I set up a private salon studio to start offering hair services and training again, oh, and Diversity Hair stopped selling synthetic hair.  That was a big decision, see previous blog post regarding that.

    Still, onwards and upwards.  We continue to sell high quality, ethically sourced human hair extensions, equipment and vivid hair dyes.  We will likely be adding other products to our catalogue over the year.

    The salon studio is now open in St Albans, Hertfordshire. UK  and I am taking appointments for Hair extensions, Hair colouring, Olaplex treatments, Conditioning Treatments, Fashion Perms and Keratin Treatments.  I will also soon be offering one to one training and workshops.

    There is also something new and different in the pipeline... so as ever, keep an eye on the site :)

  • Where has all the Jumbo Braid gone??

    As many of you are aware, the initial decision to leave the EU was a huge blow for small business, especially those who rely heavily on importing. Our business was no exception.

    The only logical decision for us was to stop selling certain products, based on the falling value of the pound. This has meant that supplying synthetic hair at current prices would be unsustainable, and a price hike would be too high. It would be foolhardy to continue absorbing the costs against other products, with the value of our currency fluctuating and the continued uncertainty.

    So based on this we decided to pass our stock to I Kick Shins in the USA, since this type of business is now more sustainable over the pond.

    This is because she is not only a lovely person, but she has a similar business model to us and is one of very few people to be honest about her products and not miss sell. It was important to us that the person to take our stock, would continue to offer our customers a great and honest service with the high quality genuine products you've come to expect from us.

    Her catalogue boasts everything you could possibly need for your synthetic hair projects.

    Plus regardless of being in the USA, she offers great value for money to international customers.

    Finally we would like to say a HUGE thank you to all our customers over the years... WE ARE STILL HERE if you would like other products or to have your hair done, but for synth hair and dread making supplies we leave you in Sarah's awesome hands :)

    Keep up your awesome projects everyone... and remember who brought you the first ever Rainbow Jumbo Braid! ;)

    Please note that we are in the process of sending the stock over, so bare with us and contact I Kick Shins for further info on when it will be online and how it will be sold.

  • Necessary changes...

    So, we've all been watching the news and whether you agree with the EU referendum result or not, it does affect a few things.

    For a import/export business such as ourselves, we have seen an immediate rise in the cost of buying in our own brand due to factory price increases, courier price hikes and of course, the exchange rate.

    Due to these factors, (and it's been a long time coming anyway), we are no longer able to absorb the inflating costs of jumbo braid.  As such we have had no choice but to raise our prices.

    We continue to bring you the highest quality products for your hard earned cash, and will strive to continually improve and expand our product range for you.

    Prices will increase gradually with each new batch of hair we receive at the new costs.

    As always we are greatful for all our customers, their understanding and continued support.

    If you have concerns about raising your own prices to reflect materials costs, get in touch as we have plenty of help and advise to give :)

  • Henlon Jumbo Braid Restock

    We’ve had a big delivery of Henlon Jumbo Braid this week, with pretty much every colour replenished. This includes our lovely transitional jumbo braid (Black to Blue, Blond to Pink to Purple etc) that we’ve had lots of requests for lately. Since we received the delivery on Monday we’ve had quite a few orders, so if you’re looking for some silky goodness to get you ready for summer we would highly recommend that you place your order sooner rather than later to avoid any potential disappointment.

    A selection below ;)

  • Sometimes Internet Trolls are good ;)

    We know, we know, we’ve been super slack lately when it comes to updating this blog. But something so amazing just happened that we couldn’t hold ourselves back from telling you about it! We’ve recently had the pleasure of supplying our own brand products to one of the true legends of modern hairdressing, Mr Patrick Cameron!

    Patrick (who is an absolute gent btw) has been working at the Cannes Film Festival 2016 promoting the new animated movie Trolls. Starring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake and a host of other top names, the movie is based on the famous toys with the brightly coloured hair that we all had as kids, so you can imagine what a perfect fit that was for us!

    Aside from the awesomeness of seeing Diversity Hair Jumbo Braid used so expertly in such a glamorous setting, it really was amazing to see what Patrick can do, especially for Jenna who has been a fan of his work for years now.

    The film comes out in October in the UK and if you’d like to see more of Patricks incredible work and more photos from Cannes, check him out on facebook  https://www.facebook.com/Patrick.Cameron.Hair

  • Interview Spotlight #4 - Hybrid Hair

    1: What is your name, and what do you do?

    Hello  ~waves~  I'm Kelly and I am the maker of Hybrid Hair Dreads.

    2: How did you get first get in to being a dread seller?

    Through the years I had brought dread falls and install kits from other sellers online I am quite artistic driven and seemed something easy I could create myself after having a bad experience with one of my sets I was more determined than ever to create something beautiful for myself. After a while doing research and making sets for myself and for friends creating all sorts of crazy ideas I decided to give selling a go.  Since then it’s been 9 years of making dreads and 7 years selling and I'm always finding new ways of creating new and unique dread sets through inspirations of mine and customs.

    3: What are your favourite Diversity Hair ranges/products?

    I would have to say my all-time favourite is the special effects hair thermal and tinsel.

    4: And what is it you like about them?

    They are so unique as hair products compared to the normal kanekalon you can buy, I love the fact you can make your dreads look totally different with how the thermal hair reacts to heat and with the tinsel hair I love how it adds that bit of sparkle its very eye catching.

    5: What is your most feared apocalyptic scenario: zombie apocalypse, robot apocalypse, or Tree apocalypse?

    I would have to go with zombie apocalypse hands down! The thought of the human race turning in to flesh eating monsters scares me any day!

    6: What is your favourite colour?

    I simply love the colour burgundy I love the depth of this shade most the things I own are this colour!

    7: Would you rather have a little finger with the strength of a hundred ordinary little fingers, or a big toe you could use to charge your phone in an emergency?

    I have to go with big toe! This would be really handy when I'm out all day or on the train with no sockets just take my shoe off and plug it in! Super convenient!

    8: Favourite Band, Movie, and TV Show? 30 seconds. No pressure. Possible bonus point for favourite book.

    My favourite band is The Birthday Massacre , TV show to date is The Walking Dead she says as she would fear a zombie apocalypse ~laughs to herself~
    Movie that's a hard one I would have to go with The Lord of the Rings series I can not pick just one!
    I'm not a fan of books so to speak but I am a big fan of reading manga which I have to say one of my favourite which is so hard to pick has to be paradise kiss by Ai Yazawa.

    9: What is your favourite set of dreads you have made, and was it for a special occasion? If so, what was that occasion? Pics or it didn’t happen (JK, we believe you either way).

    This would have to be my all time favourite this was a pre made set I made not so long back. I have a real love for mermaids! Even to the finer details such as the seed beads and pearlescent shells this set is just eye catching to me.

    10: Is there a celebrity or performer whose look you admire? If so, who is it and what do you like about them?

    I would have to say Marilyn Monroe hands down I'm very big into my 50's fashion and she was the first icon I found myself being attached to when I was 16 not only for her charm but for some of the great classic movies she's starred in too.

    11: Would you like some toast?

    Yes please with a big dollop of chocolate spread! Let’s face it everything always taste better with chocolate!

    12: If you hadn’t got in to the wonderful world of dread selling, what would you be doing instead?

    I would have perused my art more in depth with drawing and painting. I still draw in my spare time when I get chance but my creative side of making dreads does take a lot of that spare time up I'm always thinking what can I create next!

    13: You’re on the Titanic. After you make your way to the lifeboats you notice the only seat left available is next to Piers Morgan and he looks talkative. Do you get on the boat, or take your chances on the next one which may potentially be too late?

    I don't know much about him personally so maybe go with sitting next to him? Was that a bad choice well I’ll find out now won’t I haha!

    14: If the people reading this at home only take one thing away from this interview, what would you like it to be?

    For the readers to get to know a bit more about the maker of Hybrid Hair and what she is like behind the screen, it’s always nice to get to know a bit more of who the artist is on a one to one basis.
