The blog of utress.com is a reader supported website.
Some posts may contain affiliate links, and we earn a little number of commissions from some of the products listed on this site.
It happens when you click on our affiliate links. An affiliate link is a unique link provided to affiliates to promote a product(or an online service) that is then used to credit sale commissions to the affiliate.
P.S. If the article contains affiliate links, we will disclose at the beginning of that post.
Why are we partnered with these hair extensions providers?
When we first launched utress.com, we weren’t affiliated with any of the hair products listed on our site.
However, we quickly realized that testing and reviewing hair products can take a lot of time and money. To keep our site up and to run we decided to monetize with affiliate links.
Will this cost you more money?
No, it doesn’t.
Why are we disclosing this?
We want to be upfront with our visitors. We consider our reviews to be completely unbiased. However, you have a right to know if we receive any compensation from any hair products so that you can take that into account when reading our reviews.
And again, we want to be honest to you guys, our visitors.
