Read the interviw below.
ADM: Hello Marina, Can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers?
Yes hi I’m Marina as you said UK Director of Le Noir Cheveux although only launching here in UK this week , I have been working with our South African team and our team in the Far East.
ADM: As the UK Director of Le Noir hair brand, what do you hope to achieve in the nearest future?
Firstly we’d like to introduce Le Noir to the UK market and although based in London we’d like to service the whole of UK and expand from there. We are currently looking for Ambassadors to sell for us up and down the country and would love to hear from your readers.
ADM: Why Le Noir Cheveux and what was the original idea behind the birth of the brands?
With so many hair brands around it was quite challenging to try and find a name that was not ‘gimmicky’ or a play on the word ‘weaves’. We wanted a sophisticated name that would reflect the hair and the brand we want to build on and we threw quite a few names in the hat before deciding on Le Noir Cheveux – the interpretation being ‘Black Hair’ , straight forward and direct to the point.
ADM: How long has Le Noir weaves been in existence?
Le Noir was launched in 2015 in South Africa which is our head office and only this year here in the UK with the UK soft launch being on Friday 18th November.
ADM: What other countries are you looking forward to launching your brand in the nearest future and why?
We are always open to other countries for business opportunities , currently we’d like to expand to other parts of South Africa (the head office is located in Johannesburg) & we have an interest in Nigeria that we want to work on next year.
ADM: There are so many hair brands out there, what makes Le Noir unique compared to other brands?
Firstly we have taken great care in sourcing the hair with our own quality control team in the Far East . Then the hair was product tested & passed by the L’Oreal Institute in South Africa . We also put in lot of thought & time in developing the extra things like the way the hair is packed to ensure the hair is not damaged in transport. We have also taken into consideration the packaging for display purposes in salons, wholesalers & retailers to make a more attractive end product.
ADM: What are the names of your most popular weaves and why?
This is hard ! We find it’s usually shorter curls in the summer & longer straight or wavy in the winter. Having said that Ombre sells all year round.
ADM: How can one look after Le Noir hair weaves once purchased and how long can they last?
All our weaves are individually packed with a protective hair net and backing card with a thick plastic sleeve in our branded packaging to ensure the hair arrives to the client as good as when it was packed with our ‘recommended care instructions’ on the reverse. We also issue a ‘Hair Maintenance Guide’ with every sale – which we have put together using our own experience and tips from our customers.
Usually 2-3 months and it should not be left any longer than that. Longevity depends on how well you treat & care for your weave.
ADM: Are there any offers going on for the launch and how can a potential customer be able to utilise these offers?
Special event prices will be applied for the launch where we will be taking orders with the code ‘LaunchUK’ and we will extend this offer up until Christmas so everyone can benefit !
ADM: How long does it take a UK customer to receive their purchased hair once payment is made?
Usually between 2-3 days maximum from UK stock and postage & packing is free!
