Hype Hair: What was the inspiration behind Nafisah’s Beauty Boutique?
Nafisah Carter: As a celebrity hairstylist, I was always into all things beauty and fashion. I knew that I wanted to have a boutique salon that consisted of hairstyling services along with statement fashion pieces and luxury hair extensions. At Nafisah’s Beauty Boutique, we provide luxury virgin hair from our in-house brand, Pyara Hair
HH: With so many hair companies in the market how do you set your company a part?
NC: I have worked with a lot of hair brands, and Pyara Hair is top quality — it doesn’t tangle or shed, it colors easily and doesn’t have synthetic blends. What also sets us apart is our hair integrity, as it lasts up to three years with proper hair care maintenance.
