It may come as no surprise, but straight hair is the leader of all hair extension orders. While we all love a good kinky look, and we live for our curly-hair-don’t-care moments - straight hair is a classic texture that we just can’t get enough of. Here at Mayvenn headquarters, we’ve noticed a few trends from what our clients and stylists have been consistently buying and selling - now, we’re ready to spill the tea. Skeptical? In the past nine months alone, straight bundles amounted to 34% of all U.S. orders.
Effortlessly soft and smooth, straight hair is perfect for on-the-go styles and lazy days when you still want to look put together. But when you think about who consistently shows out with the straight hair slay, which city comes to mind? Was Chicago your first thought? Because when it comes to sleek hair looks, the Windy City reigns supreme. This year, Chicago beat out all other major cities and accounted for 2.25% of all U.S. straight hair orders.
Is it because the bars are open late and they need a look that holds up during the turn up? Does straight hair support the Chicago swag during any and all seasons? Whatever the case may be, Chicagoans have steadily lead the pack in straight hair sales.
While Chicago takes the cake, a few other major cities came through with notable numbers. New York City is coming for you, Chi-Town! Brooklyn and the Bronx trail right behind Chicago, ranking as the second and third top cities buying straight hair. Don’t sleep on Houston - they snatched up the fourth spot, pulling in 1.15% of all straight hair orders. And don’t forget about Columbus - they came through at #5 out of the top 10. There’s something about the Midwest and East Coast that’s making them straight kill the hair game!
Did your city make the list, or is your town rocking a different texture year round? Are there any other major beauty hubs that you expected to make the list? In the infamous words of Hov, “Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t.”
