This hair is over 100 years old. I found it at an antique store in Paris, inside a small cardboard box, tied in a ponytail with a mauve ribbon. It was tagged “31st March 1912, Valérie” in pencil. So either Valérie “bobbed” her hair as was the trend around that time, or she died young and her hair was cut and saved as a memento. Who knows. It’s a charming shade of ash blond and it’s clearly hair of a young person. I had it made into wefts and used it on a Vogue cover shoot as extensions on the model. No one was aware of the presence of this demure participant but I was on the verge of singing from happiness. Bringing this girl back to life, on a Vogue cover, immortalized forever. Not a bad turnout, after spending 90 years in a mothy box, in some creepy Parisian attic. Oh wait, that sounds pretty cozy.

Anyway, there is a hurricane at large in NYC, my shoots cancelled, not much to do but eat and fap. So I gave Valérie a spa treatment, cause you know, she may not look it but she’s an old girl. After a deep conditioning with oils and steam, she finished off with an iced water and vinegar bath. She’s now resting, silky and perked up.

I’ll tell her you said hello.

Introducing SISTERVERONICA, my clip-in, 100% human hair extension service, available by appointment in NYC or internationally by mail order.

If you are in NYC, after an initial consultation meeting where we arrive to a decision as to what you want and need [varying from just adding length, or just volume, or both, or lowlights, highlights, anything], I measure your head and source out the best hair for your hair color and texture, to create a customized set of clip-in extensions, which will blend seamlessly with your hair. In addition, I teach you my tricks for the most secure and inconspicuous way to wear them.

If you are ordering your set of extensions by mail, you just send in a small lock of your hair by mail, as well as photos of your hair and we take it from there, in the exact same way as described above.

Price varies depending to the length and amount of hair needed to achieve your desired effect. For more information, contact
