NeoTress (www.neotress.com) is a monthly subscription that offers the do-it-yourself hairstylist everything she needs to change her hairstyle each month. Gone are the days of researching hairstyle tutorial videos then starting a mad-hunt for the supplies you need to complete the look. Each month, the NeoTress subscriber will receive a package that includes a pre-selected hairstyle (customized to her hair color, texture, and length) with the products, tools, and even the hair extensions. NeoTress is for the woman who loves to change her hair often. It's for the woman who gets a thrill from having braids one month, a weave, and then maybe a wig. It's even for the woman who just wants to learn more about her hair. NeoTress offers an affordable, stress-free and easy way to explore new hairstyles on a monthly basis with all of the essentials delivered right to your front door.
Our vision is to be the leading subscription service and platform for DIY black and afro-latina hair education.
