How To Start

Believe in yourself and your business, even if the going gets tough

Some time ago I exchanged some emails with a nice lady, called Kimberly. She contacted us because she started her hair extensions shop some months ago, but after a promising start, the sales dropped and she nearly closed her web shop she opened not even a year ago. She started full of passion and energy She wrote about the energy she felt when she started last summer to sell hair extensions; she loved to go out and search for the best hair available, she liked the negotiations with her hair extensions wholesale supplier to get the best quality for the best price but most of all; she loved the talks and to sell to the clients. To advise them to buy the best extensions. She did not mind if it was day or night, she was in control of her own business! The first complaints But then at the end of last year, some clients started to complain about the extensions, the hair was tangling. When Kimberly received the first complaint she disputed the fact the hair was tangling, this was not possible, she never had any complaint before. But the client, she had such a good talks with before, turned sour. Not that long after the first complaint, another client contacted her with the same issue. This time she offered the client to return the hair and to refund all the expenses. But some more unhappy clients followed. Kimberly could not deal with the tangling anymore, she even started to call it the ¨T-word¨ just to avoid she has to mention it in full. She contacted the wholesale...

What Madam C J Walker did long time ago, you can do better!

If last week your sales were poor and the last month was no good either, you might start doubting if you picked the right product to sell. You will be searching, reading and analyzing everything that is available just to understand what is going wrong. Perhaps you already start to lose you interest in the hair extensions business, allow the passion to vanish and perhaps you are thinking of telling yourself you will quit the job! Wait, please wait before you do so, there is one more thing you should read before you make your final decision, a story about a woman who had her own share of misery but succeeded to become the first female millionaire by her own achievements and, by the way, she was the child of former slaves. Madam C.J. Walker, born as Sarah Breedlove in 1867, had a short, but rather busy, life and she managed to, despite losing both her parents at a young age, the suffering from mistreatment and poverty, to think her way out of all this and to become a successful business woman. There is enough to find on the internet about her years of suffering, but here we want to share with you how you can win the world if you believe in yourself. Madam C J Walker, or Sarah, lived in an age where the hygienic circumstances where rather poor and due to this there was a high level of hair loss amongst women. They could not take of their hair as they should, so they failed to prevent scalp disease. Sarah began to experiment with home remedies...

Double your market, start looking at men!

Except for things with buttons, men usually follow women for new trends in beauty and fashion. The same goes for hair. A typical conversation between a barber and his male client about the new hair style consists of four words: ¨the same as usual¨. Thanks to various celebrities like David Beckham this has been changing. Male clients demand more from their barber or better stylist! And now this is the same for hair extensions. In 2009 on a forum about fashion a man asked if it was acceptable to wear extensions to make his hair longer. The comments went from a simple “yes” (men do not need many words) to tips to double sew in the extension to avoid an embarrassing moment on the soccer field if you lose your extensions after you made the winning goal and the whole team jumps on top of you! But now it is possible, thanks again to celebrities, like Harry Styles and Justin Bieber, men want to make this step into the women´s world and they also want to have more length, volume and color! And except to look like a celebrity it can also perfectly cover up the impact of the natural hair recession. Did you already do a market survey to know if male clients would be interested in your products? For sure you need to use a different approach and use more examples of celebrities wearing extensions, but once you got a male client you will have a very loyal client, who will not ask much of your time. When your client returns to your shop he will only tell...

How to find the best hair extensions supplier

Hair extensions are still the hottest-trend in the hair industry and to get your share of this booming market you need to inform yourself very well before starting. For this we launched this website to help you, but we also like to support you through some other channels like social media, YouTube and our plans to support you. Five points if selecting a hair supplier There is a high demand coming from your clients and potential clients for high-quality extensions, resulting in a look that is, great and impressive but above all completely natural. The extensions should blend perfectly with your client’s natural hair. In order to find the hair extensions you are going to sell you need to do some research. And there are 5 elements we are going to take into account when selecting a supplier. We are going to check: The type of hair, the price, the harvesting and bonding method and the reputation of the supplier. Analyze the extensions You need to start to analyze the type of extensions, for example, are you going for 100% human hair? The advantage of human hair is of course the fact that the look and feel is identical with the natural hair of your client, so it will blend easily and the maintenance is equal. And this provides comfort for your clients. On our YouTube channel we placed a short video with some vital information about the hair, the structure, the differences of the various types of hair and some indications of the drivers behind the price of the extensions. In this video you learn that it is...

How To Monitor Your Business

Only if you measure the activity and outcome of your business you know what is happening. Of course you will have a (kind of) bookkeeping to check on the financial side and to prepare your tax return. But bookkeeping is telling you what has happened some time ago, while to take the right decisions in business you like to know what is going to happen. For this you need to define for yourself a number of indicators that will tell you what is likely to happen tomorrow or later. Good indicators are for example the number of people visiting your site or the number and type of comments on your Facebook postings. Once you have more than 30 likes of your Facebook Page you will be able to see a treasure of information on the people who are interested in your Page. Only the administrator of the Page (so you) is able to see this data. There is a lot of data available, but you should again focus on a few, otherwise you will get lost in the information, but if for example you have a base set of 5 indicators and every month you select one other you will enrich your insight without losing yourself in all the data available. Here are some suggestions to start with: Evolution in number of ¨likers¨ or fans: If you follow on the ending of each month the number of ¨Likers¨ or fans, you will be able to see how appreciated your page is. If you manage to have a growth of 10% a month you are doing very nice. If you...

Many subscribers to our free newsletter share with us their questions on how to start selling hair extensions. First of all they want to benefit from the increased demand from people who want to buy hair weave online.

This helps to improve the hair extension business profit because it is easier for you to convince clients that you are one of the best stores that sell hair extensions.

  3. Hi there.

    Thank you so much for this platform. I’ve been on your website /blog everyday and had brought insight. Iv also watched done of the YouTube videos.

    I’m currently running a hair business called hair express. Iv been in business for a month and have bought 4 3pcs of a mixture of hair ie Brazillian, peruvian, cambodian. Iv made R5000 in this first couple of weeks. I expect to sell more at the end of the month when my customers get paid. So that’s where I’m at exactly with sales. Next week I’m going to http://www.professionalhair.co.za which is a hair expo that happens annuallyin South Africa Johannesburg.

    So the vision I have for the business is that I will be the first wholesalers in South Africa that sells virgin human hair. Therfore I will focus on a volumes business more than a margin driven business.

    Now the problems I’m having are:
    1. Funding customers who are wanting to buy volumes
    2. Finding a great supplier who sells genuine human hair and has the capacity available
    3. Staying in business by restocking and having access to funding
    4. Finding faster turn around times with suppliers to avoid being out of stock regularly

    I have 1 hair salon that is selling my stock and I pay the lady responsible for my stock 10% of whatever she sells.

    I hope iv given you a clear overview and in looking forward to your response.

    P.s I heard about you from Tipesh of Bhoomi from India

    King regards

    • Hi Kiba, great to read your story and a good idea to be in this growing market for human hair in SA. Great in the first weeks of your launch you already have a salon selling your hair brand. That´s promising. Setting up a wholesale business requires, more than a re-seller business thorough market research. Indeed you need both re-sellers/salons in need for high volume and suppliers that can meet this demand. If you match the demand and the supply you can save on your inventory. You could even consider to work with dropshipping. We also notice the increased demand for human hair in South Africa because the number of questions, requests for business plans and demand for hair suppliers is growing. At this moment we are working on a service to provide salons and re-sellers in South Africa hair samples.

      Give my regards to Tippesh, a great company to work with in India indeed.
