40 September 2017 | new product and best hair extension for the Annual Stylist Choice Awards. After so many decades of success, Napolitano looks back in amazement on how far the company has come— and gazes even more fondly on his "tremendous" team members. "We ven- tured into uncharted territor y," he muses. "I'm so proud of the relation- ships we've built, the image we've built—how the brands are viewed—as well as our education." Looking forward to 2018, the HairU- Wear family is excited to celebrate, with loyal customers and employees, 50 years since Eva Gabor's conception— think special collections, promotions, customer contests, social media sweepstakes and more. "This is a ter- rific industry I've spent my life in, and we're extremely passionate about what we do," Napolitano says. "Change your look, change your life! Whether it's a runway-inspired updo or long, sleek locks, nothing transforms your attitude like a bold new hairstyle." Intent to continue changing the way stylists and consumers think about hair extensions and clip-in accessories, "We want every woman to view ready-to- wear hair the same way she thinks about what blouse she's going to wear or what color lipstick she puts on," Napolitano says. "HairUWear is more than just a hairdo; it's a style statement. I'm very excited about the future!" ■ Tracy Morin is a freelance writer and editor based in Oxford, MS.
