About Us

In the heart of Gothenburg, Sweden, lies Akena, a unique online hair extension business owned by Josephine, a determined black woman. Since her childhood, Josephine has always had a deep passion for hair, which grew even stronger as she experimented with her own afro hair. Living in Scandinavia came with its challenges, as local hairdressers lacked the knowledge to handle her unique hair texture, prompting Josephine to become her own hairstylist.

As Josephine's love for hair extensions grew, she constantly sought new and exciting ways to experiment with different textures. However, finding high-quality extensions that truly lasted proved to be a daunting task. This is where Akena steps in, striving to provide customers with reliable information and a diverse range of textures, whether you prefer virgin hair or chemically altered human hair.

At Akena, our primary goal is to be transparent with our customers, bridging the gap that Josephine encountered numerous times before. We firmly believe that everyone deserves access to hair extensions that instill confidence and enhance their beauty.

We thoroughly test, use, and live in our products, ensuring that we have a deep understanding of their quality and performance.

As a new business, we highly value feedback and eagerly listen to our customers. We are dedicated to providing a service that meets your needs and surpasses your expectations. Whether you're an experienced extension-wearer or new to the game, we invite you to join us on this transformative journey and contribute to our growth through your invaluable feedback.
