Product Information

Mio Pelo is healthy virgin hair that has never been chemically treated or processed in any way (the hair has been sourced directly i.e curly hair grown from a curly source) and as such is much better suited to colouring and perming if necessary.

Mio Pelo is cuticle hair, collected on the ponytail, and sold as such. Therefore the direction of the hair is respected, and as a result the hair does not tangle or shed at all. It comes in natural colours from black to medium brown. These colours can be dyed to lighter shades, just as you would colour any hair.

Mio Pelo virgin hair is noticeably softer, naturally wavier, much more meticulously maintained, healthier looking than the typical Asian/Indian hair currently flooding the markets. It is excellent for people from all ancestry – Caucasian, Chinese, African – as it looks very natural, yet manageable.

The quality of the hand wefted hair enables the client to reuse the hair over a period of 2 to 3 years, which is why we offer a 1 year guarantee for all our hair (subject to correct usage and terms).

Volumes & Lengths

Mio Pelo wefted hair extensions are sold by weight and length. There are 21 lengths available, starting from 8 inches (20cm) all the way up to 29 inches (74cm). 10 wefts would be required for one full head. However, we also sell each weft on it’s own.

For example:

Each Mio Pelo weft is 25g in weight. One average (full) head is 250g.


Mio Pelo specialises in naturally wavy Peruvian hair. The 3 textures Mio Pelo offers correspond to 3 degrees of natural waviness as follows:- Classical Straight, Bodywave and Curly. All textures can be straightened by blow-drying and waved-up again by air-drying. Mio Pelo can be worn one length or in layers. For any cutting or chemical processes such as perming or colouring, we recommend this to be carried out by professional stylists.

Wefting methods

Our Mio Pelo hand tied wefts have been pre-cut to 20 inches wide and are sewn by hand to make the smallest wefting possible for the most invisible look. The smallness of the hand tied weft is great for weaving. The Hand tied hair can be cut from the weft to use for fusions.
