it does look like hc is no mo

ppl who ordered in august havent heard a thing and are doing  chargebacks to get there money back.............. hc not answering email for 2 months some said

ive always felt holly was a one woman show so maybe something bad happened to her like a accident .................... or arrested.................. maybe she died   ???

She had a good run... It would have bee nice if she was professional that she was going out of business, accepting no more new orders, sending current orders their items in time.  Vendors should always leave on a good note and professional just in case they want to have a re-grand opening in the future.

Perhaps I can get a vendor name please. I have some halley's ripple curl 2 bundles but its not enough for a full install. I was patiently waiting for them to have a sale.

Sooo I have some gentle wave 8 oz of 14/18 I needed to order for more oz any close matches?


Posted By: LindseyJ88
Date Posted: Sep 24 2013 at 10:42am
I wonder if anyone has any updates with this. I mean they could have been more professional about an exit. I mean you know when you haven't paid your website fees. LOL. But I don't think she was a one woman show. I think perhaps maybe there wasn't as much money in the hair biz after all. If you're not on the new next best thing then you're not making it! 

I still have a salon relaxed closure that is still going strong after 2.5 years. I cut bangs into it now, but it still works for that look. 

Shame.. is anyone going to leak vendor info.? I really think her vendor is holly zhang. anyone? BUMP BUMP BUMP

I have a silk closure from HC in a relaxed texture.  It does look very realistic.  I can't wear it anymore because it started to baldCry


Posted By: india100
Date Posted: Sep 25 2013 at 9:32am

Maybe the balding closures and bad CC where factors . I bet she will return soon .



Posted By: Naturalchick30
Date Posted: Sep 25 2013 at 9:42am
Yeah I hope she corrects those issues and starts the business again.  Until then I have to look for a silk closure to replace the balding one.  So sad.  The scalp matched to a T.  I would go with silkbaseclusres.com but they don't have a relaxed texture..

They made my favorite hair, Gentle Wave Relaxed.  I hope they come back or someone verifies their vendor.  I wanted that hair for my next install. Confused

I found a white woman with the same name but she's on the east coast. Halleys Curls was owned by Holly Ann Labbe.
I hope it isn't true.

Yeah, I just recently found out only a few days ago that she passed.  Really sad.  I feel bad as I was bad mouthing her as I was one of the customers where I paid my money and never received any product and had to scramble to get hair for my appt at the last minute.  My issue now seems so miniscule.  May she rest in  peace.

Did any of you get an email today from halliescurls? I'm not sure if it's the family reintroducing the line spelled differently. The products and prices look familiar. I just wanted to see if any old customers got the same email, if so Halley might be back as Hallie!!

My sister just fwded me that email. The first thing I noticed was HallIE's Curls. Wonder if she sold her client list or simply wanted a fresh start?

The website looks better.

 
They got rid of their taxes for APO with the California zipcode.  Shipping is 18 something dollars...before they wanted over 30 something dollars for shipping plus outrageous taxes for a state that I did not live in because of my zipcode.  They got rid of the salon relaxed.

I don't like the fact that they are emailing Halley's old customers (how else would this "new" company have our email addresses) but not saying anything about why the name changed, acknowledging the old owner and her customers, etc, etc.  Why not just be open and say she passed away and they are starting fresh with a new spelling and new website. 

Buy from us based on the fact that our name is similar and assume that we are legit based on the fact that we have your email address
.  

Kind of shady IMO.  


Posted By: Belladonna1

^^Agreed! I tweeted the new company and asked if they rebranded Halley's Curls to Hallies Curls and they have not responded yet!

On their Youtube page it says they're "reintroducing" their hair. But I think it's someone else pretending to be them.

They could sue her but who would? She just took the opportunity and ran with it. CV'S do it all the time and email us all the time talking about I used to work for so and so now I open my own business and you are my friend. Tell me your order my friend.
