Selling Hair is Easier Than You Think!

You have heard that selling hair extensions is big business.

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.

Selling Hair Extensions

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.

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

    On Average how much money do you need to start your own hair business?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      It depends on where you are at with your budget and the type of business you are looking for. It can be done through your own website, social media, and different marketplaces like wig market! We suggest having your most popular hair on hand and signing up for dropshipping to make business simple and easy. Dropshipping gets rid of inventory costs that may help you in many ways. Researching the variety of options will help guide your way around your budget.

        What would you recommend for a stay at home mom? What would be budget friendly if I want to start small? How do I start buying the bulk of hair?

        1. Private Label Extensions says:

          Come up with a budget that works for you, as you can check all the prices we have on our website. They are all wholesale prices. If you want to start small, we suggest starting with at least 5 of the Brazilian style bundles, which includes the body wave, loose wave, silky straight, deep wave, and kinky curly bundles. We highly recommend trying the bundles out before making any commitments, we also provide sample kit available for purchase on our home page.

    I am looking to sell Remy extensions wavy straight clip ins

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      As of right now, we only have our Indian Remy Body Wave available.

  3. Vicki Iman says:

    I like the idea of drop shipping. However, how much money could you possibly make doing this kind of thing.
    1. Someone who wants weave could just shop directly from Private Label Extensions and see that your prices are lower and forget all about my hair company.
    2. Most women like to actually feel their hair to make sure that they aren’t being jacked before they buy.

    I guess that’s where marketing and branding comes in but…..
    I would like a little more insight possibly. How do I know if this will actually work?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Dropshipping is definitely a great go-to when starting out or if you are a busy person in general. There is a great window for profits due to our wholesale prices. Your profit will vary depending on your marketing skills and how much time and effort you invest in your company. When you build your customer list, there is a great chance they will always come back as your regulars. Having your own business gives you the freedom to navigate around what your consumer wants and needs are, and you will be given the chance to provide for them in however way you would like to proceed. We also sell our Brazilian sample kit you may purchase online, as an option for your customers. How to Sell Hair Extensions this Year is a great read if you would like to explore your options more.

    How can I register for the drop shipping? How can I get the pictures of the products I want to show to the customers?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      We have different memberships you may join. Once you have chosen that plan you want to stick with, you will gain access to our “Marketing” tab which contains product photos, Facebook images, and Product Videos all available for free download as part of your dropship account.

    I’m ready to start selling hair and lashes. I would like to just start advertising through social media and then work my way up to a website. Since this is my first time, my questions are, since I’m not going through dropship and I’m doing everything independently, about how much hair should I buy? Should I buy a bulk to start? Say for my first month or two? Estimate how much should I invest in merchandise?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      First, come up with a budget that works well for you. Purchase a variety of hair to see which is more popular with your consumers and base your future purchases towards that. Our prices vary, so I would say to do your research and work your budget around the extensions we offer.

    You mentioned something that was very important in this article and stood out for me. You said to be a walking billboard for your brand. Every time I step out of the house I am dressed for success, makeup applied, and hair slayed. Every time someone asks who did my hair or where did I get my bundles from I hand them my business card. I change my hair often to keep it fresh and hot. I am my brand. I also signed up for PLE drop ship program and I had them to create a website for me. Their commitment to me has helped me to be very successful in building my brand and clientele.
