For nine years, Fofana International Beauty Supply, has satisfied customers in the West End and surrounding areas with beauty supplies and other items from hairs, wigs and eye lashes to socks, shea butter and soaps. The store also ships to other states and international locations. The store's owner, known affectionately as the "Sock and Pony Man" developed his own hair after hearing customers complaining about hair that frizzes and curls that go flat. His creation, called African Pony, is made with synthetic material and a secret chemical agent, that makes the hair look and stay curly, he says. He also designed Compassion, which is 100 percent human hair.
