Our Story

Founded in 2019 by entrepreneur Dafina Smith, Covet & Mane is the world’s first line of customizable hand-tied hair extensions that offers the coveted benefits of hand-tied weft extensions without the complications of traditional application methods.
With over a decade of experience in the hair extension industry, Dafina realized that, between hard-to-use products and limited training, even the best stylists struggle to bring their visions to life. Dafina’s deep respect for clients and stylists inspired her to cut a different path—one defined by luxury and innovation.

 

Our artist-first approach ensures that our stylists receive best-in-class wefts and the best-in-class education so that they can create best-in-class looks. The result? The finest luxury hair wefts in the world and The Collective—an exclusive creative community powered by the industry’s leading artists.

A stylist is only as good as the hair they work with & our hair is only as good as the stylist who works with it.

Dafina Smith, Founder & CEO

Our goal is simple: to provide you with best-in-class hair that you and your clients can rely on, always.
