Speaking of the hair extensions industry, Michael gave a positive reply. “The hair industry as a whole is a big, big business. I’d like to think that these celebrities love their hair so much that they want you to have hair just like them, but you can easily make 100% profit.”
When it comes to the advice of picking extensions, Micheal also expressed his opinion. “Take your time when it comes to picking your hair. It is your image. You wear it all the time so just make sure you work with someone who knows what they are doing, and if you don’t like it, you can always get more hair.”
