How to Make Money Selling Hair Extensions & Weave Today!

Selling Hair is Easier Than You Think!

You have heard that selling hair extensions is a big business.

You are right!

Have you ever asked yourself, "How Can I Make Money Selling Weave?"

There are so many different options available that you generally have to piece together to get started. We understand the difficulty of getting all your branding, packaging, wholesale hair, shipping, and everything else together. This is one reason why over the past few years we have transformed from just being a wholesale hair supplier into more of a hair agency.

Our one-stop-shop approach to getting your hair brand up and running has proven to help a lot of companies.

So how do you make money selling hair? If you work with the right hair distribution company it can be easier than you think.

Interested? Let's take a look at your options.


Become a Hair Weave Affiliate

Years ago we launched an affiliate network company called Luxury Hair Direct. It was free to join and you can start selling in just minutes.

How did you make money selling hair with Luxury Hair Direct?

Once you join you get your own affiliate link. You share the affiliate link on Facebook, Twitter, Email, or anywhere else you can post a link.

Luxury Hair Direct now has thousands of hair affiliates that share their link to make a portion of the sales if someone clicks on their link and makes a purchase.

Each affiliate makes 15% of each of their sales. Not bad! If someone makes a $200 purchase you can make a commission of $30. Not bad!

It is a good way to get started in the hair business if you are not sure if you are really ready to make the commitment to starting your own hair brand.

The best thing to do is to start wearing the hair to be a walking billboard. This is the same for Luxury Hair Direct or your own brand. The biggest problem with the model of Luxury Hair Direct was most of the clients really wanted to just start selling hair under their own brand.

We listened. In early 2017 we shut down the LHD program to focus solely on Private Label Extensions and Dropship Bundles.


Go to the Next Level with Your Brand

If you are serious about starting a hair business and your own brand then you have two great options. This is a lot easier if you are a stylist or salon owner that already has a clientele built. It is not required but obviously, it just makes sense.

We have clients that are selling hair weave that just loves the hair! This is totally OK as the market is big enough.

You will have to make an investment in hair and probably technology for a website. This is a little risky when compared to becoming a hair weave affiliate like discussed above.

More risk equals more rewards.

There is nothing like having your own hair brand and selling bundles. It's great! Especially when you work hard and the sales start coming in.


Buy Wholesale Sell Retail

Private Label Extensions is your premier wholesale hair distributor. This is what you need for your first step.

You probably want to know how to make money selling hair at retail prices. Easy. Buy wholesale and sell at retail. You have the hair connection, Private Label, so time to use it and start making money. There's no need to buy a hair vendor list if you are reading this. You have found your hair plug!

Selling hair can be done in so many different ways. You can sell on your own website, social media, and a dozen other hair marketplaces.

The key is being able to get offer your clients top-notch products at great prices. This is exactly what we focus on for our wholesale clients like yourself.

If you are going to inventory products make sure you know what your market is interested in or the more popular hair extensions that are available.


Consider Dropshipping Hair

Don't have the finances to buy hair in bulk? Want to focus on marketing the hair more than shipping?

Dropshipping hair extensions might be for you. This allows you to sell hair from home, on vacation, or on the go!

With dropshipping, you can purchase the hair right after you sell it and have our team pack and ship your order for you.

We can work with you to make the bundles your own with awesome hair extension branding. This includes hang tags for the bundles, custom hair packaging and even add a care card if you provide them. Our goals are to make you look good and sell more hair.

The hair extension website option is the fastest way to get started with selling online. The websites have all our products, lengths, and bundle deals loaded into the site. This can save you days in development alone!

Dropshipping is something you should definitely consider when starting your own hair brand on a budget. We have a course on How to Dropship Extensions that can give you some insight into how our system works. Selling hair bundles has never been easier than with Dropshipping!

If you have already started your hair business journey through Shopify and have decided to take the Dropshipping route, then you can integrate our Dropship Beauty App with your online store to allow easier processing for your hair business.

Make Money Selling Hair Extensions

We discussed three ways to make money selling hair extensions as an affiliate, buying wholesale and selling retail, and dropshipping.

What is going to work best for you will depend on your budget and interest in selling someone else's brand or creating your own hairline?

The key is to make a decision and start selling soon. Every day you postpone selling hair is a day you are missing out on potential sales.

If you need assistance creating your own brand and selling hair extensions then consider working with the USA based hair experts here at Private Label Extensions.
