Fun Facts

As unbelievable as it may sound, the first hair extensions date back to 5000 BC and Ancient Egypt with the first documented proof of their usage being the hair weaves used by Egyptians in 3400 BC. This hairstyle was a symbol of status and wealth and both women and men wore wigs or sewn-on hair pieces. The wealthy men shaved their heads and used the hair to make ornamented wigs out of it. They used human hair – their and the hair of poorer Egyptians who sell it. The poorer men who wanted to be fashionable as well, used mainly dyed sheep wool for their wigs. Egyptian women added hair extensions and braids, which were usually of bright colors – gold, blue, red, etc. They used resin and bee wax to attach the extensions. Cleopatra also weaved her hair and her favorite color was peacock blue. The aristocrats in Ancient Egypt used the different knots, twists and braids as a symbol of their status, age, religion and wealth.
