Salon Talk: “My New Remi Fox Hairdo”

So as I prepare for what seems to be a busy week of events, a must do on my list was to get a professional hairdo and weave installation. As I thought about what quality of hair weave that I wanted, I went to my go to brand for most of the wigs that I wear, the Vivica Fox Hair Collection. I have worn the Vivica Fox hair brand in many of my posts and am honored for them to sponsor my hair for FFFWeek® and also Curves Rock Fashion Weekend. They politely sent me two different textures to utilize. I decided to go ‘Brazilian’ first and got the wonderful hair stylist, Shakeita of Replica of Im-ij to do my install for me this morning. You may remember this is the same salon who did my updo hairstyle for the current June issue of Richmond Magazine. This hair is from Vivica’s parent hair company, Amore Mio, and is called the ‘Brazilian Natural Wave‘. This hair is 100% human virgin and can be dyed or bleached. I wanted a full long length of hair so I used 3 bundles of the natural wave texture in 18 inches. The hair retails for about $74 per bundle and should be available in your nearest beauty supply stores now or very soon. Shakeita first braided my real hair up then wefted it with a net and left a portion of my real hair out at the top. Now at first I was hesitant to leave any of my real hair out as I know that my natural grain is no where near Brazilian, but being the professional that she is, she hooked it up in the end. From a stylist  point of view, Shakeita said that she was very impressed with the quality of this hair and that the tracks were not too thick which made for ease sewing in. I can’t lie, I feel like a new woman with this hair and am ready to hit the town, literally. 


Many thanks to the Vivica Fox Hair Collection company
