    • I want to start a business

  2. Hi, i want to start selling hair in South Africa and Qatar. i am looking for a hair supplier, kindly help please, thank you

    • Hi Lethabo,

      Thanks for your questions and good to read you want to sell hair in South Africa and Qatar. You will need the right quality of hair to beat the competition and to attract your clients. To find a good wholesale supplier the best start is to understand the needs of your clients, what is the texture and quality of hair they are looking for and what are the pricing and shipping conditions they are willing to accept. Use this information to search for the hair suppliers. Now make a long list of suppliers using your first search and check the websites and social media platforms of these suppliers. How active are they, what do others write about them. If you have done this you can make a short list of hair suppliers. Now you can contact them and try their samples to discover how they handle their clients and the quality of the hair. If you want a faster way to get hair suppliers in your inbox try our VIP service. Best regards, Stefan

  4. Hello, I am looking to start a multi-level marketing hair company from the ground up. I would like most my sells to be in person and via online until I am able to open a location. I find it challenging to find a good supplier with reasonable prices. Do you have any idea for me? Thanks

  5. i want to start selling hair. i want my own website and i want hair on hands to sell to the people around me.

If you have a limited budget please check our post on the smart inventory, this will save you money and avoids to sell no as you will have the most needed hair always at home.

  6. Hi Stephani

    I hope you well I wanna start a weave/hair business. I do not want to be the direct communicator with customers or clients I want to to supply hair salons. The way I want my business to work I want to have a website or a mobile app where by salons around the world will be able to order online specifying the quantities they want etc then I deliver those after payment is done or they collect them.Please advise.

    • I apologise for writing your name wrong.

      • No problem at all, in fact it’s a very original way you wrote my name!

    • Hi Nomakholwa, thanks for your question and I think you have a very smart idea. It is good to be different selling hair. To deliver hair to salons can be very rewarding. They deal with many clients, clients who trust their stylist so if you have a salon as client, you have a bigger sales per client. I would like to talk with you on your plan, feel free to make an appointment on our site (blue comment button). I am looking forward to talk with you.

  7. Hi Stefan

    I kinda need advice or suggetions anything . I recently started selling hair and opened a facebook page called Tu es belle hair , ive been getting likes from people but no one actually really contacts me wanting hair and if they do then they want what i dont have and thats always the problem as im still starting this thing . Im currently in South africa , Cape town and finding it very difficult to sell hair here cause people struggle to pay upfront if not then they want discounts even though my prices are still reasonable for the quality hair im providing so because of that i even made a 2 months laybuy to make it easier but still im not selling . Im now sitting with hair that i want to sell so i can get new stock of what some of my clients want . Im not even sure how to approach hair salons cause i wouldnt mind supplying them with what i have so i can order what clients want so that i dont loose them . Im really still new at this and still finding my way , its frusting at times but i really love hair and want to continue with this and making my clients happy , it would also be great to sell to people in places like Johannesburg , Durban , Nambia and so forth but i need to make capital first . Im not sure if you get what im trying to say i hope you do , your help , suggestion will be of great help .

    Thank you inadvance !

      Please help me with the full URL of your Facebook page, so i can take a look at it, and share some suggestions with you.
