Tatiana Karelina grew up in a small Russian village but eventually landed in West London, where she is currently one of the most sought-after hair-extension specialists. Unlike the glue-in versions worn by Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Amanda Bynes, Karelina has become something of a beauty legend because her weaves do not require harsh adhesive chemicals that might otherwise destroy your hair, relying instead on tiny metal clips. To build them, she uses a network of hair dealers in small Russian villages, who post signs that suggest a salon rendezvous. Once clients arrive, the hair handler harvests the human follicles and sends them to London. Our suggestion: Someone start writing this screenplay for Liam Neeson now.
