I would love to start selling hair

Last week I received an email from Marry, who wrote “I would love to start selling hair”. For me this is an awesome opening of an email, because it shows Marry has passion for making people look and feel good.

love to start selling hairSo good to love to start selling hair, but you need to know where to start. Too many times the love or passion to start selling hair fades away if the love is not answered. In other words, if no sales of hair extensions are made.

What is your mission?

To begin your own hair business, it’s good to start with the question why you want to start a hair business. Is it only to make some extra money, or is it to have an alternative for a day time job? It also really matters to set a deadline, a period you allow your business to grow before you decide if it’s successful or not?

So imagine you give yourself three years, to start selling hair before you lose the love to be in this business. Within three years your business should be a success, have a loyal client base and generate enough money to meet your goal, some additional money or more.

To whom you want to sell to?

Now you know how much time you have, you can decide the people you want to service. Who is your ideal client you want to make feel confident wearing your hair? Make sure you focus on real persons. Do not make assumptions, but interview people at the mall or in the gym. The more realistic the answers, the closer you are with the persons who will eventually buy your hair.

How can you be different?

Ask them the right questions, ask them not only about the hair, the texture or the price level. Ask them about their experience purchasing extensions or wigs from other hair stores, what did they like, what did they find disturbing?

Create your own website!

This will give you enough input to create an offer that will attract many visitors to your website, visitors that will love your hair and thus will make sure you won’t regret to start selling hair!

    • Hi ShaQuan, that’s nice to read. What is your plan? Do you want to start selling before the end of this year, so you can benefit from the demand of people who want to look great for the holidays? Or do you prefer to wait and start next year? I recommend to start with a light shop, for example on social media and with some hair at hand, Or you can start as distributor, see my post on this.

  2. Hello,
    I know selling hair is my calling, I took a loan out on day and started everything I have a website a business email, fb and ig page! I already have a vendor also! But it seems like I’m not running into the right people, I don’t have a inventory just yet because I don’t want to have hair that’ll just sit so I purchased display bundles so customers can see and feel so they can know what they are buying However I don’t know what else to do to get my name out there more and get more followers as well as customers. It’s hard to get people to actually try my hair out I get a lot of views on my website but no one orders don’t get me wrong I’ve had a few sales since I launched back in July however I set a goal for myself and I should have way more sales by now so I’m trying to figure out what I’m missing and what I’m doing right and wrong so I can fix it immediately please help.

    • Hi Goddess, it shows you have been further fine tuning your website. I especially like your new return policy, you really put the customer first! Keep on updating your website! Let’s talk again if you have implemented the other recommendations.

    • Hi Ayeshia, Good question because you do not want to invest your money in hair with a low demand. Some time ago I published a post about the smart inventory, please check my post and let me know of this helps! Regards, Stefan
