Beautiful hair can cost a pretty penny, but now one business wants to help you go into debt over it. Best or worst idea ever?
A good weave can run into the hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars, and that’s a big chunk of change to lay out all at once. Enter The Weave Loan Store — sort of like a payday loan, but for your hair.
Is this for real? Claiming to have a brick-and-mortar office supposedly located on 8 Mile in Detroit — made famous by the Eminem biopic as not exactly the ritziest of ‘hoods — they don’t list a more specific address but do give a phone number, which does work.
The company’s video and pitch definitely made waves once people made their way to its Facebook page.
But don’t even think about defaulting on your weave loan, because they will snatch that hair right back, girl.

That’s a joke. We think.
They say the economy has all but recovered from the misery that was 2008, but there must still be a lot of people facing hard times if this business is really a thing. Is it really any different from a plastic surgery loan, though? Plenty of women finance breast augmentations and tummy tucks, so why not new hair?
