About UK Hair Specialists Limited

UK Hair Specialists Limited was formed by husband and wife team Steve and Eva Proudman, both having extensive experience in the Hair industry. Eva has always had a passion for hair and in 2003 joined hair extension company Racoon International, here she was quickly appointed General Manager and after adding £2m to the turnover led a management buyout with her Husband Steve to become managing director. Steve previously joined the company as an IT consultant in 2004 and became the Global Operations Director in 2005. During this time Eva & Steve continued the success of the company securing retail contracts with the likes of QVC, Superdrug and Argos and also growing the export part of the business by over 10 times! In 2010 they decided to exit the company to a more sedate lifestyle, however after many salon owners and friends persuaded them they formed a new hair extensions company in 2011 called 'The Real Hair Company'. The Real Hair Company has and will always be a small company serving a select number of trade clients who want the best quality hair but at down to earth prices backed up by outstanding customer services, something that Steve and Eva have always delivered.

The Real Hair company still trades today without any form of advertising or promotion with cleints learning about them by word of mouth alone. Eva has continued her almost obsessive interest in hair and in 2011 began a consulting company serving those requiring help and guidance on hair and hair relaled business, one of those companies being Banbury Postiche, the oldest traditional wig making company within the UK.

Eva still offers a consultation service to Banbury Postiche and in her thirst to further her hair knowledge and expertise qualified as a Trichologist with the Institue of Trichlogists. Eva consults to many large corporations and has helped them in their development of hair related products ensuring the best quality products whilst making sure the clients hair is treated correctly.
