Barclay Wolf triumphed on Sunday night at The Herald’s Look Awards 2016.
The relatively new business lifted the award for Innovation in Technology, previously held by us, for their revolutionary tape in hair extensions.
The creators of Barclay Wolf have over 40 years experience in the hair and beauty industry and to quote their website they “understand the needs of salon owners, stylists and extension technicians, as well as the demands of their discerning clientele”. It’s understandable how they would be able to create a product that would win such an important award.
As well as the tape in extensions they also have double and triple drawn pre-bonded extensions, in both 18” and 22”, they have a variety of colours and even have the option of ombre shades in all of their extensions. For their new tape in range they have both the regular tape in and the invisible tape in.
The regular tape in also comes in 18” and 22”, as well as 32 colours, including ombre and works by ‘sandwiching’ the strips of hair between two extensions topped with a layer of adhesive. (A video of Chris Christoforou demonstrating the application at the Scottish Hair and Beauty Show 2016 will be at the bottom of the article). Their invisible extensions work in the same manner, but there is a layer of hair on the top extension to disguise the tape. Barclay Wolf says this is best suited for those with thin hair or those looking for a perfected look. There are a limited number of colours in this range at the moment but they will be adding more in 2016!
We are sure that many people will be excited by this range of extensions particularly professionals in the industry. If you are keen to train up in this you can attend training course in Glasgow, London and Liverpool (contact Barclay Wolf about this HERE).
The aim for these extensions is to cut the time of application by over half and to remove the element of damage that other extensions bring to your natural hair. However, of course they have upkeep requirements, with the main point being to avoid applying oils to your hair. You can read the upkeep requirements HERE
We hope we have encouraged you to get involved with Barclay Wolf’s latest venture and we wish them all the best. Congratulations to the new Innovators in Technology!
