Great Lengths S.p.A. Benefit Corporation founded in Rome by its chairperson Matteo Antonino in 1992, has its headquarters in Nepi (Viterbo, IT) and within the beauty industry, it is renowned as the world’s leading producer of hair extensions made of natural hair. The company’s name, Great Lengths, is a clever pun which references both the idea of making that extra effort, always going above and beyond, as well as conveying the image of their trademark long, sinuous strands of hair. Every single Great Lengths product encapsulates Italian craftsmanship experience, together with the application of increasingly state-of-the-art technology developed the field of hair extensions. Great Lengths remains a manufacturer in its DNA and strives towards progress and change: in 2022 the company joined the B Corp network, to become a spokesperson for an increasingly ethical type of business, by making individual people, the community, and the environment their main priority.
