It’s nearly a week later, and new details are still emerging about how over-the-top Kylie Jenner‘s twenty-first birthday was. The beauty mogul and reality star spared no expense on her enormous hot-pink-hued bash at Los Angeles hotspot Delilah, which featured a giant pink ball pit, a staff clad in T-shirts printed with her Forbes cover on the back, and not one but two birthday outfits. The latest nugget to come out: Jenner apparently dropped a casual $8,000 on extensions to get her XXL, butt-length, birthday hair.
Violet Teriti, the extension artist who put in Jenner’s 30-inch custom ponytail, explained to Refinery29 this week exactly why those 400 grams of hair imported from Russia were so expensive. “There’s nothing better than [Slavic] hair because it’s the only hair that doesn’t need to be bleached and processed so many times, or even toned and glossed—it’s naturally already highlighted,” Teriti said.
The stylist said she only had one day to prepare the look for Jenner’s birthday bash, but luckily, she had enough extensions lying around to make it work. According to Teriti, the hair she attached to Jenner’s head was actually a weft: a hair extension that has been sewn or “wefted” to create the bundle of extensions, as opposed to a simple ponytail. Teriti also noted that she typically sells these extensions for between $6,000 and $8,000, but if you’re projected to be the youngest “self-made” billionaire in history, that’s basically pocket change, especially when you consider that Jenner brings in roughly $22,000 an hour.
