What is a Hair Vendor List?
The new trend of selling a list of hair vendors started gaining popularity in the last few years as more people have started getting into the hair extension industry.
With an estimated $10 Billion in annual hair sales, this industry is HOT and everyone is trying to get their piece.
A great hair vendor list will include a bunch of hair suppliers that will sell you wholesale hair extensions to supply your business. Most lists that are currently for sale on the market will vary with the number of hair suppliers.
How many hair suppliers do you need to sell the same products? Good question!
Are the Best Virgin Hair Vendors on a List?
This is what you need to ask yourself.
People's expectations of hair extensions can vary greatly. You might think that one bundle of hair is fantastic for the money while the person that creates the "hair vendor list" has a totally different opinion. I personally always rely on our client base to tell us what they like best.
If you are looking for a quick find for Raw Indian Hair, Malaysian hair, Brazilian Hair, or Vietnamese hair you could be disappointed for the simple fact your opinion differs. This is totally fine and expected.
You should expect to find a vendor that offers HD Lace Closures, HD Lace Wigs, and more trending products.
Looking for a Wholesale Hair Vendor?
Private Label Wholesale is direct from manufacturer solution that has proven products including bundles, closures, frontals, wigs, lashes, and more!
This website will solve all your hair supply issues. Pricing as good as the AliExpress & Alibaba vendors without the hassle. FREE ACCESS!
How Much Does a Hair Vendor List Cost?
We have seen lists vary in price from $47 all the way up to $997!
Some will break it down by type of vendor. This could include one list that sells Indian hair while another sells Brazilian hair.
It really depends on the type of wholesale weave you are looking for.
One question you should ask yourself is how much does it cost for someone to come up with their own hair vendor list? I honestly could make one in just minutes.
What Wholesale Hair Companies are Listed?
The same ones you could just find yourself on Alibaba, Aliexpress, and DH Gate.
We have the vendor list discussion often in our Start a Hair Extension Business support group.
It was great that a lot of people that actually bought a list said Private Label Extensions were on it! I think that is the only thing I like about these lists.
So many people are looking for the top Aliexpress hair vendors. Did you know last year Aliexpress had to clear out over 90% of all their hair vendors because of all the complaints and issues they were receiving? I know you might have been looking for the best Alibaba hair vendors but do you really want to be another person with an issue? We will let you decide!
If you really wanted to find us and couldn't remember our name you could just search Google for "Wholesale Hair Extensions" and we are probably #1. Why is Private Label Extensions listed #1? Google knows what's best.
Do Your Own Research
The best advice we can give is to do your own research.
It is just as easy to take the $200, $300, $400, that you would spend on one of these lists and just buy some sample bundles from a few suppliers.
If you are looking to work with a wholesale hair company in the USA that provides tons of support, drop shipping, education, support groups, customer service you can actually speak to, and more then please give the hair team at Private Label Extensions a chance.
Quick Tip: Make sure you know how to calculate the Delivered Cost of hair extensions from suppliers. Many people forget to factor in that overseas suppliers will often charge transaction fees and the shipping cost per bundle is much higher.
Don't want to work with us? (Shame on you!) No problem! Your next step would be to start searching and contacting hair companies on Alibaba & AliExpress.
I know what you are thinking. Are we really telling you where else you can find wholesale hair suppliers? For sure! We are really confident in the quality of the products and services we offer.
Honest Tips Before Using a New Hair Vendor
Yes, many of the horror stories of working with some companies overseas are true.
Did you send a hair vendor funds via Western Union to save on fees and didn't hear back? Yes, this has ever happened to us when we first started out. I sent money to a company in Malaysia and never received the hair. They even had the nerve to call me and ask for me to send more money for customs but didn't have a tracking number. Never doing that again!
One time we ordered some samples from another hair vendor. Wow, the hair was so nice and for a great price.
I thought we struck gold with this supplier! Next, our company purchased about $3,000 in various sew-in extensions.
Time to get selling right? Wrong!
The next batch of hair when we decided to make a larger purchase was total crap. It was so bad we just didn't even feel right selling it at a bigger discount than we purchased it for. $3,000 loss!
Is there a guarantee that a company on the hair vendor list you purchased will be any different? Absolutely not!
It would actually be funny if you asked the person selling a hair vendor list if they have a money-back guarantee if you don't like the hair extensions that are being sold from a company on the list. Doubt it!
How to find a Virgin Hair Vendor or Raw Hair Vendor
There are many ways you can find your own hair vendors without a hair vendor list.
If you have an Instagram page about hair extensions or wigs I am sure you have been bombarded by Instagram messages. Yes, hair vendors and wig vendors will find you. The biggest issue is that they are also messaging ALL of your followers as well to try and sell them hair. My advice would be to block them immediately.
A good virgin hair vendor might be easier to find compared to a raw hair vendor as there are so few, honest raw hair vendors. Especially when trying to find Raw Temple Indian Hair.
Some popular search terms for hair vendors are:
- wholesale human hair distributors
- hair vendors near me (for local hair vendors like Private Label)
- hair wholesale vendors
- good hair vendors
- hair vendors wholesale
- best hair vendors 2020
- best hair vendors 2021 (or insert current year)
- human hair vendors
- hair distributor wholesale
You might get lucky and find a reputable hair vendor.
If you decide to use someone from Alibaba or Aliexpress please proceed with caution. As I mentioned, the bait and switch method is very popular with them. And never do payments outside of the Alipayments system.
If you are looking for a USA based hair Dropshipper then consider the #1 most popular in the USA with Dropship Bundles. You will have access to both virgin human hair and raw hair extensions.
Final Hair Vendor Thoughts
If you are looking for a reputable hair vendor please consider Private Label Extensions and Private Label Wholesale for bulk orders with the best possible prices.
Private Label works with over 1,000 clients to provide them some of the best hair extensions for the price.
If looking to work with vendors overseas please just be cautious. There is nothing worse than losing your hard-earned money by someone trying to make a quick buck.
