So you've made the awesome decision to break into the hair extensions business. Go you! As you enter this exciting industry, one thing should be on the top of your list: Finding a good HAIR VENDOR.Hair vendors
The market for virgin hair is undoubtedly hot right now, so it's a great time to find success of your own in this high-grossing industry. PR Newswire reports that the hair extension and wig industry will grow to a whopping $10 billion by 2023. Given that it's a growing marketplace, market saturation is a concern. In order to compete and win, a great hair supplier is a must!
Now that you've settled on your business idea, you may be wondering where to start. There are all sorts of fun things to think about, like your logo and theme, product photos and your blog. But your first order of business is the most important: sourcing high-quality virgin hair. Choosing a reliable hair vendor and developing a long term relationship can make the difference between a business that flops and one that succeeds. Which do you want to be?
Of course, you want your hair extensions business to bring in those hard-earned dollars and make you a success story with a business that makes you feel proud. Choose high-quality hair from a good vendor, and you put yourself in a position to achieve all your goals and make a nice living. Not only that, going with the right vendor can save you tons of trouble (think unhappy clients and bad reviews) down the road. No doubt you want to hit the ground running and make the right choice the first time.
Many newbies to the industry fall into traps that are easy to avoid. You definitely don't want to get bamboozled by a bad vendor with low-quality hair. To be clear, there are MANY out there. Not to scare you, but you should be a bit wary about getting duped. You have to choose carefully.
Never fear — we're here to help you make the right choice. Armed with a little knowledge, you can find the best wholesale vendor for virgin hair.
Many people start out sourcing hair on AliExpress since they offer low minimum orders. But there are unfortunately lots of bad vendors mixed with the good. There are so many hair suppliers there, and that makes it hard to figure out which vendor is the best for you. The key here is to have a plan and not get overwhelmed. AliExpress isn't your only option. Do a Google search, bookmark your favorites, and read reviews if they're available.
Pay attention to the quality of the information on the seller's website. If they seem very knowledgeable, they have clearly invested more time into perfecting their business. It shows they take hair seriously. The best wholesale virgin hair bundles come from suppliers who know what they're talking about, not just websites with celebrity pictures and little else.
One tip for weeding out low-quality sellers is to use targeted search terms. Search for something industry specific, like "BEST BRAZILIAN HAIR VENDORS", for example. This will cut the search results down to a list of professional suppliers who know industry terms. From there, your job is to contact each supplier and ask questions. Where is the hair from? Do they manufacture it themselves? If they say something that sounds too good to be true at a bargain price, that’s a red flag.
You need to trust your vendor, and you should feel confident when you place an order. Shoot them an email or get them on the phone. The latter may not always be possible if you're dealing with a company on the other side of the world. But if they speak English and are willing to chat by phone, Skype or video chat is a good option.
You can learn a lot by how timely, personable, and willing to work with a new, growing business each vendor is pretty quickly after a few emails. Your business has unique needs to consider. You should also get a sense of lead time once you email a few of the vendors on your shortlist.
Trust your gut. If you see any red flags like non-responsive sellers, shoddy websites, or vendors who promise more than seems possible, you may have to move on to someone else even if the prices are good. It can save you a lot of trouble down the line. You don't need the headache of missed orders, or not getting the items or quality you selected.
Don't take a gamble by choosing the cheapest vendor. You need to be focused on sourcing high-quality hair, not finding the seller with lowest price. Anyone can do that, but you need to be a cut above the rest to make your business succeed.
