Have you ever had your hair ‘trimmed’ by a scissor-happy hairdresser?
That was the case for me, when a simple one inch trim magically turned into 5 inches. All I could say was ‘Thank God for hair extensions!’. I had recently purchased clip-in hair extensions, and was looking for different ways to style my hair with them, so I went straight to YouTube to search for hair extension tutorials. I stumbled upon two sisters, Mimi and Leyla, on their channel, Luxy Hair. Before I knew it, a few hours had passed, and I was on a Luxy Hair video marathon. These two sisters have a tutorial on almost every hairstyle imaginable, and with their thorough instructions and down-to-earth personalities, it’s impossible not to get hooked on their videos. If that wasn’t enough, they even have their own clip-in extension hair line of 100% Remy human hair that you can style as if it were your own hair. Needless to say, these two sisters have found a tremendous amount of success within their hair extension business and their YouTube Channel, pulling in close to 400,000 subscribers (and growing) and over 60 millions hits worldwide.
Watching their videos makes you feel like you know them, even though they live in Toronto, Canada. Fortunately for us, they made a brief visit to Los Angeles California, and took time out of their trip to meet with the Viva Glam team for an interview and photoshoot. We instantly connected with their warm nature and positive energy. Katarina did an amazing job of dolling up their hair and make up, and did I mention that these sisters love to dance? They shimmied their way through the photoshoot, laughing and enjoying themselves. When they weren’t shooting, they were playing with Katarina’s rescued dog, Daisy, and that’s where I discovered their deep passion for animals, which was very moving. We had a blast spending time with these amazing women. If you want to get to know these sisters a little better, hear about their successful hair company and catch a couple dance moves, check out our video.
