It is really weird as New York City being one of the most fashionable cities, it is still pretty hard to find the best quality hair. New York City beauty supply stores are saturated with cheap and low quality hair as the demand is high, and the customers will keep coming back.
However, there are those special gems that many have not heard of with some of the best quality hair stores in the area. This list below by far are the top weave shops in Manhattan. In random order, they all have their pros and cons, but overall the quality is superb.
Bella Beauty Supplies
This small beauty supply store in the lower east side is somewhat new. They sell the basics of natural hair, wigs, but they hold a secret stash of weave that is directly imported from dealers from Brazil, India, Malaysia, and China. The hair is no joke and neither are the prices. Ranging from $200 and up, this quality hair is 300% completely natural. The only problem is that they only have limited hair. So it is first come first serve.

This sheek store is in an elevator building with a cool display of hair on fashion racks. Most of their business is online, but you can get great hair shopping for the quality through the racks like you are shopping for clothes. The hair consultant Amber is an absolute sweetheart and can help you get what you need. The pricing starts at about $100.

Wigs and Plus
Wigs and Plus may seem like a typical beauty supply store, but this shop has all the weave brands you can think of. Their shop is a beauty supply store on steroids.
