When you look good, you feel good.

And for those of us who love to rock a good weave, Chanel Life was created to give you the best quality hair possible.

“Chanel Life was created to reflect class, status and quality to adorn women who crave the “finer things in life,” said Monica Chanel, founder of Chanel Life. “Chanel Life is not just another hair company or vendor, Chanel Life is a lifestyle.”

Naming the brand after herself, and also the luxury that “Chanel” endures, the newly founded extension brand launched with distributors across the United States. The black-owned extensions company was born out of Monica’s desire to fill a void in the extension industry by providing 100 percent virgin human hair that is completely natural and of the highest quality.

What year were you founded?

Chanel Life was founded in 2017.

What inspired you to launch your business?

I was inspired to start Chanel Life due to the lack of quality hair extensions on the market. After growing tired of dealing with various fly by night hair companies that claimed to have “virgin hair” I decided to find a way to give both myself and women of all backgrounds the quality hair that we have been promised. Chanel Life is not just another hair company, Chanel Life is a lifestyle.

What makes your ‘Chanel Life’ unique with what can be considered an oversaturated hair market?

What makes Chanel Life unique is our commitment to providing each and every one of our customers with the luxury experience, not only is the quality of our product unrivaled but we also take pride in providing first-class customer support.

Why should everyone #buyblack this holiday season?

We need to #buyblack because that’s the only way we can gain power as a people. We must redistribute the wealth within our community first before others can take us seriously.

How do you pay it forward within your community?

We actually are starting a new campaign called “Blessed Tresses” to help raise awareness of Alopecia Areata within the African American community. We will be partnering with various wig makers to bless women and children who suffer from this condition with wigs to help ease the emotional toll that may come with having Alopecia.

What is your business mantra?

Chanel Life’s mantra is, “It’s more than hair; it’s a lifestyle.”
