Beauty Works was founded right here in Manchester in 2010.

Beauty Works was founded in 2010 by Penelope Cheshire right here in south Manchester! The city of Manchester has never been a shrinking violet in industry and Pen and the Beauty Works team are smashing the UK, European and US market. Beauty Works are now the hair market leaders in temporary extensions, building notoriety with quality hair and increasing their sales 20 fold since they launched just a few years ago! I think what they do is great and I love Beauty Works hair extensions because of their thick, glossy double drawn gold wefts and constantly updated ranges.

Featuring in Look Magazine, The Daily Mail, Glamour and Teen Vogue to name a few, Beauty Works hair extensions have been awarded Look Magazine’s “Best Hair Extensions” and crowned at The Hair Awards 2013, 2014, 2015.  Loved by extension artists, models, stylists, girls on the street and celebrities alike. Michelle Keegan, Dannii Minogue, Nicole Scherzinger, Olivia Palermo and Victoria's Secret models are just some of the heads they have enhanced.

When it comes to temporary hair lasting 6-12 months you really can't go wrong with Beauty Works. I love the transformations constantly uploaded by my fellow extension artists to Instagram, check them out for inspiration & the transformations Beauty Works hair extensions are capable of.

I've tried every hair grade out there from YAKI (horse/cow...i was duped... I was 16!!) to synthetic, to Indian REMY and I always wear virgin hair these days, but I'm a raw hair convert and may actually have a virgin hair extension addiction! I like a very subtle look day in day out that doesn't turn heads but just looks naturally healthy, as opposed to the look you can get with a Beauty Works Weft which is pure princess hair...that I'd really love on the weekend! For wedding or a special night out.

If you look at the price difference and the length of time the different hair lasts Virgin hair extensions do actually work out more cost effective in the long run, but it just depends what you prefer and that's why I offer both.

There are pros and cons to both types of hair extensions and I'll list some here to help you if you are trying to decide which kind of extensions to get.
