Melanie - Managing Director
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa Melanie Burgers entered the digital world as an online marketer and web designer in 2006. However, the urge to travel took her across the seas to the US, where she continued to grow her digital skills. It was in the States where she came across the answer to every girl’s dream, REMY human hair extensions. After extensive research learning the difference between the brands as well as bonding, micro-looping and tape extensions, she discovered clip-in extensions. Shortly after which she returned to Cape Town and started the Clipinhair brand.
A lot of time was taken in sourcing the best suppliers of Remy hair, ensuring they were not just 100% human hair, but that the eleven chosen shades would match almost any customers colour. Having a solid, high quality product along with top notch customer support has been what's separated Clipinhair from the rest. Clipinhair has climbed to the top of the Hair extensions Market, and this is where it has stayed.
