  1. I have passion in this business. I will like to open a shop in Edo state, Nigeria, and am a graduate from one of the reputable universities in Nigeria, and I studied polymer technology. I think this will also stand as an advantage when the business is cited in Edo state. I will gladly appreciate

    • Hi Joan, thanks for your question. Based upon our research we see a growth of interest in hair extensions on the African continent and for sure in Nigeria. To setup your business we recommend to first analyse the competition, this helps you discover how the market operates and what you can do better.

      If you have a good idea about the market, start a survey amongst 20 to 30 potential clients, try to find our why they buy the hair, how much money they spend and what they like and do not like in their current hair supplier. Please make sure you get their email address so you can start to build your client base already.

      Now you know what your clients are looking for and you can start to look for the hair supplier, do not focus too much on a specific type of hair, but look for the right mixture of hair. Too many people offer Brazilian hair that is not Brazilian, but just looks great.

      I hope with these steps you can start to work on your own business, please feel free to contact me or to subscribe to our free newsletter.

      Looking forward to hear about the launch of your business, Kind regards Stefan

    • Hi Jenny, great to read your comment. Too bad to set up the hair business together did not work. To work with a partner can sometimes really support the growth. But there are plenty of people who run their hair business alone and they are very successful.

      It’s good to put your customer first as you do, happy customers will help your business to grow, so it’s good to focus on this. There are many steps but to start to get ideas and work towards your own shop you can try our free newsletter.

      You can also analyse the competition, not only to see the retail prices, but also to see how they market their hair, how they deal with clients, and what you think you can do better. If you use this information to talk to your target group of clients you can find your unique selling point, the service or product offering that makes you unique and your hair wanted.

      • Hi I’m looking to starting my own business saleing hair in my town it’s only one place that sale hair item but not the hair client looking for

        • Hi Jerri, Good to read your question. I understand you already did the first step selling hair extensions, you checked the competition. Smart to visit other hair suppliers, so you can compare their offer and services. If you also manage to speak to some clients you can compare the offer from the competition with your knowledge of clients who want to buy hair extensions. What kind of hair do your clients want to buy and do you already know a wholesale supplier? Do not forget to also analyse how your competition is marketing the hair extensions and the their payment conditions or return policy. All this will help you to offer hair at conditions your clients can not resist to buy from you! Did you already register on our free newsletter? Please feel free to contact me.

  3. Hey, I would like to start my own hair extension brand but I’m unaware of the next step to do after I’ve already gotten the idea. Where do I get good hair quality to sell? How do I make sure my website includes all inquires? Etc.

    • Hi Tiffany, thank you so much for sharing your dream. The next step is to stop dreaming for a while and to work on how to get people who want to buy hair from you. Talk with people in the shopping mall or who just left a beauty salon and find out what they want. And listen well to know what they miss in other shops. Make sure to share your business card and to get their email address so you can let them know when you launch your business.
      First make sure you have a well running sales process, and focus on 1 thing instead of trying to do everything. To start your focus should be on a good market survey. Please feel free to share the results of your survey with me. KR Stefan

  4. I would like to sell the best of the best hair! My only problem is getting people to buy and finding the perfect supplier. But my main problem would be, is getting the finances together to get this started. Where do I start?

    • I forgot to mention that I’m in Atlanta, Ga. This is a really good place to set up shop! Everyone wants the best hair… just don’t know the ropes of how to get started with limited funds.

      • Hi Danielle, Thanks for your two comments on how to start your own hair business. It’s possible to start selling hair with limited funds. You could ask for example your clients for a lay away deal, so they will put some money aside to save for the hair they want to buy. Another option is to optimize your inventory, it’s possible to have enough stock at hand at the lowest cost. For your marketing you could start with social media, this is always free, you would be surprised how many people look on Instagram or Pinterest for good deals on hair. Make sure you are active with your social media account and interact with your potential clients. It’s even possible to enhance your clients relationship if you build up a email list, this helps you to end up in inbox from clients or potential clients. And by doing so they will think of you at the time they want to buy hair.

    • Hi M. Nthontho, great to receive a question from South Africa. We see a growing number of interest to start a hair selling business in Africa and South Africa is one of the most popular markets. The best thing to start, and this is for free, is to analyse the competition. Who else is selling hair and at what conditions, at what price or shipping and payment terms. But also how do they market the hair they sell. Try to contact them to understand how they interact with clients. If possible place an order and analyse very step it takes before the hair is at your place. What is excellent in what they do and where could you do better? If you have this overview you made already a very important first step. Now you can start to talk to potential clients to have a market survey and use your knowledge about the competition to learn more. Please feel free to share your findings with me, kind regards, Stefan

  6. Hi Stefan,
    I’m passionate about hair extensions (I weave, braid, twist, etc). and would like to start an online business for extensions in Vancouver, BC, selling quality extensions with lots of variety for different ethnic backgrounds. There are several salons who do installations, but not many real ‘hair shops’. I’m not sure what start up costs would be involved, or how to start period.

    • Hi Diana, I am happy you want to to combine your passion for hair with making money. I advice to start step by step, if you have the passion and the skill, you will be able to win the confidence of your clients. In the beginning make sure to get mouth to mouth promotion of your shop and your brand, this will save you marketing expenses. No need to invest much, especially not if you keep your stock at a low level. In our Business Plan Template we have the calculations you need to figure out the amount of cash you can earn with your hair business and how much you need to invest as start up cost. Good news there is a very nice discount for subscribers of our free newsletter.

  11. Hello! My name is Valery Jeanpierre and I have a vision to grow a hair extension business to make millions. with the help of my teacher in school, I’ve already created a business plan and have a unique idea with selling hair. The problem is that I have no capital. The first step I wanted to take was buying raw virgin hair from a wholesaler and changing the product with the idea that I have and then posting it on social media to sell it. But I have no idea of getting the money. or is there something else that I should be worrying about other than the startup money?

    Reply
    • Hi Valery, first of all you are very lucky to have a teacher like you have. If you start in this business of selling hair it’s good to have support from others. It’s good to see you also prepared a business plan for your hair extensions business, this will help you to stay focused. Off course I do not know the business plan so I can not advice you if you need a high capital to start your hair selling business, or if you can start with little money, and mostly use social media as a marketing tool. I think you do not have to worry because you already got the main things in place, support and a business plan. I advice to start finding your clients and interest them in your unique product. Did you already select a name?

    • Hi Valerie,
      I am kind of in the same boat as you. Having the money to start a business can be hard to come up with. I live in the south and I live in a city where the hair is a competition.if I had good quality hair extension or any product that promotes beauty and enhancements.I couldn’t make thousands of dollars in a day out of my car. I hope all goes well for I’m sure we both will find a way to live our dreams.

  12. Hello Stefan,
    I’ve been wearing hair weaves since 2012. I’ve ordered from many different companies and have had my share of good and bad experiences. As a junior in college in a very small town I see hair extensions are becoming extremely popular. And I would love to start a small business selling hair online and personally selling to girls on campus. There’s no where we have acces to buy good quality hair in our town except online. I would love to be the one that could provide it with good process with ease of access. I love your ideas on surveying and building a client base. But my only issue is finances. Should I start off with a big inventory or small idk. I’m concerned about how much to order and what textures and lengths will sale? Another thing is how do I make sure I will profit and still afford to buy a d stock up. I wanted to have the hair on hand so females could see what there buying it’s not often you can do this you usually invest so much money in hair weaves online and don’t know the true quality until its to late.
    I just need a guide and a push I’m very serious and think this would be a great business.
