    I would like to nominate my business Boss Lady Virgin Hair Collection. As of today, we are online only with the intention of opening our first brick-and-mortar location within Metro Detroit by end of this year. We provide human hair extensions and natural hair care products. We offer more than great hair, it’s a movement. We look forward to furthering community involvement with the homeless and mental health awareness and also Domestic abuse survivors etc.
