I had an amazing experience at Mohair Beauty and would really like to share.
I used to get my extensions done by an independent supplier who would come to my house. I was very happy with her until she sold me non-remy hair and I was stuck with it for my WEDDING. It was horrible. I had my hair in a side braid the whole time just to prevent it from knotting horribly, and when the day of my wedding came the stylist that I paid to come to Mexico with me had a terrible time trying to find a style that would work. My hair was ok for about the first two hours, and then it started to mat so badly. I tried to enjoy my evening, but it really ruined my night and my photos. The next day, two of my friends spent hours trying to brush the mat's out of my hair. Chunks of it were coming out. It was an absolute nightmare!! I contacted her when I came back to Canada and she basically told me that she could not guarantee her hair and that things like this happen. Pretty much, too bad, if you want new hair you can pay for it and I still won't guarantee it. I felt sick after talking to her as I had spent a lot of money (well over $1,000) getting my hair ready for my wedding. I only had a week until my honeymoon, and I had to get this hair off my head. I also couldn't go without extensions now because of the chunks of hair that had come off of my head, so what could I do?
I contacted Mohair Beauty, and I spoke with Fanta. They had just done a friend's hair, and so I told her I was being referred by my friend. She offered to have me come in for a consultation, and also told me that even though they were no longer offering the 50% off sale that she was more than happy to extend me the offer. When I arrived at Mohair, I was very scared. I knew I needed to do something but I was not sure if I could trust them. They made me feel very comfortable, and spent a lot of time doing a colour match on my hair and explaining all my options to me. They also really seemed empathetic to what had happened to me and were very good at explaining the differences between remy and non-remy hair. They also did their best to move their schedule around so they could fit me in before my honeymoon. I went with 4oz of Russian hair and I have to say that it's the best hair I have ever had!!
When I got my hair installed, I met with Yanni. She is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. She took the time to install my hair slowly as my head was raw from what I had just gone through. We shared so many laughs and she really made me feel comfortable. Most importantly, the hair was amazing and exactly what I had expected. I wore my hair on my honeymoon for 3 and a half weeks where I swam in the ocean almost every day and even showered in salt water and it was still super soft and amazing.
I really cant say thank you enough to these ladies. I have been back for a tightening and I was greeted with hugs from both of them. Their hair is amazing quality, their service is above and beyond and they helped me so much when I was in a difficult situation. I will be a customer of theirs for life and I highly recommend them to anyone.
"Ah, where should I start about Mohair Beauty.
I'll start off with a little bit of self-bio. I have an OCD called TRICHTILLOMANIA. ( Trichotillomania (also known as "trichotillosis") which is classified as an impulse control disorder by DSM-IV, is the compulsive urge to pull out one's own hair leading to noticeable hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment, and in some cases one may even consume the hair. It is often chronic and difficult to treat. )
I've suffered from this for 11 years. I am totally BALD. Just my hairlines are left behind. Since this has caused insecurities for me, I have for years resorted to Weaves, wigs, extensions to cover up my bald spots.
Over the years, I've spent a bit over 10,000$ on weaves and extensions. I've done it all. Full head weaves, tracks, microlinks.... And everything was so costly and was REALLY obvious that I had extenions in, espcially at the top of my head. You could totally TELL that was not my hair. Whenever I sat down and people stood over top me, I just wanted to get up and move away and I didnt want them seeing the top of my head. I was always so uncomfortable and my hair always got tangled like extenions do. I had to brush it out every hour to make sure it didn't look like a cat coughed up a hair ball ontop of my head ( LITERALLY). Not only did the hair suck and the extensions look totally HORRID, the prices were un-believable. I spent 300$ every visit to get the whole head weave put back onto my head. This was every three months. That calculates to 1200 every months, plus buying hair every 6 months which costed about 200 each time. That makes it 1600$ A YEAR, for a total of my hair looking fake and dry. The braids were also done super thick, which made my head look so bulky. Yeah I understand you can go out and buy super expensive hair but you will never KNOW what happened to it, it could not even be real virgin hair! And I learnt this the hard way buy spending a lot of $ on it and seeing that it was poor qaulity as to what I got a Mohair salon. Everyone used to ask me if i had exntesions, a lot of people used to point at the little circular part in the midle ( ill include a picture to show you what i mean) and ask me " whats that? ". When people used to pat me on the headm they would stop and think about what they just felt or some would just say, "WOAH LAY OFF THE HAIR SPRAY!" I was stuck with two hair styles. Keeping it down, or a side pony tail. IT got so boring having the same style for 4 years. Thank god it is over. I will never go back to this every again. Not only was it a night mare, it was also a huge waste of money.
As soon as I got sick of throwing my money away I found Mohair. Mohair has provided me not only with self confidence but they have also made LIFE easier for me, and more affordable.
I feel and look better, I'm not as depressed and worried as I used to be. From Mohair Beauty ive gotten their free flow cap extensions. ( they are sculpted to fit your own head size ) My head now looks like it has a natural part, LITERALLY, even I can't tell that my hair is fake. ITS A DREAM COME TRUE! This is also MUCH CHEAPER ( surpriningly because it looks more expensive ;] ) than everything else I used to settle for. I am saving 1,000$ a year. Every hair on this cap it put in strand by strand which allows me to part my hair line from anywhere I want. ( YAAAAAY !! ) This isn't all of it, you also get a free STYLE with every visit, Free haircut and colour with your first extension set. I am so grateful to have found Mohair Beauty. I can now go swimming, walk in wind withouth worrying about my hair flying off. This isnt the end of it. The staff at Mohair Beauty makes you feel really good about yourself. They are located SUPER close to waterfront station. only a 6 minute walk down west cordave street and you will be there ! They are really poilte, and considering of what you REALLY want. I love the staff, you can relate to them all somehow and not worry about being afraid to tell them why you need extensions. There are always willing to take that little bit of extra time to make sure that you are satified at the end of the day. They use fine russian virgin hair and it comes it pony tails literally cut off the persons head, as is. With this peice, no one has looked at my head and re thought about what was there. I get nothing but compliment. I can peacefully sit down on transit and not care if someone is hovering over top me anymore. When people pat me on the head, they dont notice anything because of how REAL the hair feels. Not once have i been asked, " are you wearing exnteions?" or gotten that weird " is your hair fake?" look. My family also loves it, im leaving less hair on the brush for my sister to clean out. This piece barley sheds hair! Its secured in pretty tight. Also she likes the it looks natural and the fact that I can do more than one hair style now just as much as I do. You can't go wrong, I've boughten high end hair and this was the best out of all of them. I will never go back to anything else. Mohair is the only supplier of this type of hair, also another place in california from what I hear but that's about it. I can not comes to terms with how greatful I am.
I will include pictures of before ( ew ) and now ( YES! ) for you guys to see for yourselves, and I encourage you to call Mohair Beauty and check it out for yourself! You won't regret it :)
"My name is Sarah Ritchie and I live in Vancouver BC. My hair has always
been thinner than I would have liked it to be. I always wished i had
long gorgeous, full, big bodied hair but unfortunately I inherited my
family's thin stringy and straight hair. Then suddenly when i was 17 a
few round bald patches appeared on my scalp. I was diagnosed with having
Alopecia Areta. AA is an auto-immune disorder that cause the immune
system to attack itself. There is currently no cure available. I tried
several different treatments including creams, very painful cortisone
injections directly into the scalp, and eventually a very strong and
dangerous steroid called Prednizone which has a lot of long term side
effects and causes extreme weight gain in the face. Not an easy thing to
have to go through at any age let only being a 17 year old girl in her
grad year of high school. I couldn't face my friends or even bare to
look in the mirror and my self esteem was completely destroyed. I lost
about 65% of my hair. I am 32 years old now and over the years I have
learned to accept this condition with a grain of salt but have always
been hoping and searching for a solution and ways to hide it that were
comfortable and that didn't look unnatural or fake. Good quality hair is
very hard to find, people will try and sell you anything. It can be
quite expensive and it's really hard to find a company that is capable
of doing the installments in a way that is both natural looking and
comfortable to wear. It can be embarrassing going to regular salons
where other people end up staring at you and the staff doesn't have the
proper experience needed to deal with this type of condition. I had
pretty much gave up any hope of finding any solutions that would fit all
of this criteria.
That is...until I heard about a company in Vancouver called MOHAIR. I heard about them about a 2 years ago. This place is just simply amazing! Not only are they extremely knowledgable when it comes to different types and all conditions of hair loss, but they are also very sensitive, empathetic, friendly and discreet. They have gone way above and beyond to work with my specific wants and needs and I would recommend them to absolutely anybody who for whatever reason would like to have a different head of hair than the one that they have now. MOHAIR is in a word-incredible!!! They have the complete resources and ability to help anybody in absolutely any situation. They really go the extra mile to make sure that you are completely 100% satisfied with the outcome. I have spent hundreds of dollars on hair in the past and ended up completely wasting my money and just doing more damage to my actual hair in the long run because of bad quality hair and bad quality installments. Mohair 100% guarantees not only the quality of the hair but also offers a 2week free follow up to make sure that you are completely happy with the work they've done for you. I am so very grateful to have found out about Mohair and I can honestly say that I now finally have the hair that i have always wanted and I also have a very special and fantastic team of people who are there to help keep me beautiful. My self esteem is so much better today because of Mohair. My husband and friends and family are so impressed with not only the way I look but how happy I am now. My mom says that she has her happy little girl back and I really do finally feel like myself again and an even better version at that! I want absolutely everybody to know about Mohair because it can be so depressing to have to live with something that you don't like about yourself, it effects every aspect in your life and it is no way to live. This is why I am posting this on the internet, so that the world can see that there are real and wonderful options available for anyone and everyone who wants or needs different hair than what they are currently stuck with. Mohair works with both male and female clients, and there is no situation or condition that they haven't already worked with and can find ways to solve and make you feel and look beautiful again. Even if I didn't have alopecia, I would still continue to go to Mohair because I have never, ever been as happy with my hair as i am now-even before I was diagnosed with this condition! Mohair has been able to finally give me the hair and the confidence that I have always wanted and I could not ask for anything more. BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU TO MOHAIR!! They have given me my life back :)"

“I have been a Mohair customer for over 3

anywhere else. Not only the high quality of hair that I love so much, but the
service. Mohair is like a second home to me. We are a family and I wouldn't

those considering Mohair….
I had researched for a good three weeks before stumbling upon Mohair's website and I decided to go to their store in person and check things out for myself so I made an a consultation appointment. The consultation was great. They answered all my questions and explained to me the different types of hair, prices, procedures, everything that I needed to know. I decided that day that I would get my extensions done there so I made an appointment.
On the day of the appointment the staff really cater to your every need from offering drinks to food. I also noticed they all have a need to get to know their clients for who they are and really work on that relationship.
It took three hours to complete, they washed, sewed, attached, and cut my new extensions into a style that I loved and even showed me how to curl my hair with a flat iron to even giving me some product samples to try at home and reminded me that I had a free two week check up to see how the extensions were doing.
I've been to many salons but this one is clean, modern, and the staff are all amazing women. I'll never stop going to them they are very special people to me. Thanks for reading and I hope you go book a consultation!”
“Ok… what have you done
to me??? I’m now and addict to hair. I will never ever live without
these beautiful extensions. I’m amazed at how great they look and
the compliments I receive. The texture and colour are perfect… no one
knows the difference. People have told me I look 10 years younger… not sure if
it’s the hair or the confidence that it’s given me. All in all…
unbelievable. Your salon and professionalism transcends the
norm. Thanks so much and see you in a few months! “
