What Does it take to sell $142,350 in Hair?

Not as much as you think.

The average retail hair extension order is around $195.

If you get (2) sales a day at this average, you will make $390 per day in sales. Multiply that by 365 days in a year, and you get $142,350.

Yes, all you need to do is get just two sales a day!

What if your store received orders a day? Your sales would be around $1,067,625.

Motivated yet? The addition comes when you learn exactly how to sell hair extensions. Let’s get started!

Hair Extension Display

Setting Up Your Hair Business

First things first. Let’s take a look at what it will take to get your hair business online and how we can help.

Logo

Having a well-designed logo is a crucial part of your branding strategy. We offer an excellent logo package that gives you (6) designs with revisions to make the perfect logo. (ORDER LOGO)

Website

Having a fast, mobile-friendly and well-designed website with your branding is crucial to selling online. Did you know that 85% of all the shoppers on Private Label Extensions are using their mobile device? This information is huge!

We can save you time and money with our hair extension website services that already have all our products loaded into the sites. This website package includes hair extensions, edge control, and even the 3D Mink Lashes. Our designers will add your logo, about info, contact details and make the site your own. (HAIR EXTENSION WEBSITES)

Dropshipping

Don’t have the funds to inventory hundreds of bundles? Maybe you work a daytime job and don’t have a chance to pack/ship orders and take them to the post office. Don’t fret! Our sister website Dropship Bundles has you covered. The system allows you to sell at retail and buy at wholesale while having our team ship all your orders. You can have each order branded with our custom packaging, custom tags for the bundles and we will even include your care or thank you cards if you send them to us. (MORE ON DROPSHIPPING)

Wholesale Hair

Working with a USA based wholesale hair supplier has many advantages. Having the ability to give us a call – 404.458.1330 – and ask questions about our hair and services is a huge plus. Once you calculate the delivered costs of buying hair overseas, you will notice the shipping costs drive up the cost of each bundle. You don’t have that issue with Private Label Extensions.

Would you like to stop by our Atlanta showroom before making a purchase? Great! Stop on by! We offer all the popular lengths, styles and origins to supply your hair brand along with fast shipping and great service. (WHOLESALE HAIR)

Custom Packaging

Stand out from the crowd! We create eye-catching hair extension branding to make your bundles look great and give your customers a fantastic first impression. We offer hair extension tags, silky hair bags with your custom logo and labels for edge control and mink lashes. (HAIR EXTENSION BRANDING)

If you are on a tight budget, you can hold off on some of the custom packaging items. Will your bundles look as hot as you want? Probably not.

Your will never launch your business “perfect” every time. The key is to get started!

The next step is to understand how to take payments for your orders. More payment options are coming to the market every year. Let’s initially focus on the easiest ways to get your money safely.

Start Your Hair Business

Accepting Payments

If you want to get paid you have to have a way to take payments. Not all credit card processors will process payments for hair extensions.

For example, Stripe is a fantastic processor, but they consider hair extensions high-risk. Don’t try and sign up with them because you will eventually get shut down.

This payments situation is the biggest issue we have with creating a hair extension website on Shopify. You are forced to use Shopify Payments which are just a white-labeled version of Stripe. You will have to pay additional transaction fees which can add up. Stick to WordPress!

The best two payments solutions that process payments for hair extensions in our experience have been PayPal and Authorize.net.

Which one should you sign up for? Both! We will explain why.

PayPal

Fantastic service that has been the leader in online payments since online payments were born. The fees are reasonable, and their service is excellent if you stay in contact with them during any issues.

The single best aspect of PayPal is that you have instant access to your funds. This is huge! You can sell your hair extensions at Retail prices and use the free PayPal debit card to purchase them at the wholesale cost immediately.

It will help solve any cash flow issues.

PayPal allows you to login to their system and sends invoices to your clients. Sweet!

PayPal.me is a service where you get your own custom link where clients can send you money as well.

PayPal makes it easy to gather payments from your customers in many different ways. We love the flexibility!

Authorize.net

This payment processor is a reliable company that has no issues with processing payments for hair extensions. They are more of a traditional processor that can easily integrate with your website and allow you to take payments online. You will need an SSL Certificate to take payments online securely. (All our websites come with a free SSL). Their fees are manageable, and they have a good customer service team if you have any issues.

Processing Hair Extension Payments

So why do I need (2) Credit Card Processors?

Technically you only need one.

If you are like me and want to limit the risk of any issues doing business then get two. Here are a few situations you need to look out for.

When you are first selling online you have to build up your trust with the credit card processors. Just like building credit with a credit card company.

Believe it or not, if you sell too much too fast they will often start holding a portion of your sales. This helps the credit card processors mitigate their risk of possible fraudulent charges and chargebacks.

Chargebacks are the worst thing that can happen to you when processing payments.

Most credit card processors get red flag signals when you more than a 1% chargeback rate. So if you get two chargebacks in your first hundred orders then you could have some trouble.

The processor will often limit your account and make you do some extra verification steps. It can generally be resolved quickly but it could shut down your ability to take payments online.

Having a backup credit card processor could quickly solve this. You can easily switch to your backup processor and still continue to sell online while you resolve any issues with the other processor.

Planning ahead is going to be an important part of learning how to sell hair extensions online!

How to Sell Hair Extensions with Great Marketing!

We all know that marketing is a crucial part of selling anything to anyone. There are hundreds of specific components to selling hair extensions both online and in person.

If you focus on learning how to be better at marketing on a daily basis, you will see great results.

Let’s go over some of the primary marketing channels for you to sell your hair.

Sell Hair Extensions Video

Social Media

There is no better way to get your name out there than social media. It has never been easier to find new clients online with all the channels available.

Just think back 20 years ago and how difficult it would be for a small business to get their name out there. Magazine ads? Newspaper ads? Flyers in the library! I can’t even with all that.

We have a world of opportunity right inside the apps on our phone. Let’s put them to work!

Selling Hair on Facebook

With 1.6 Billion users it is hard to deny that Facebook is not the biggest opportunity to start marketing your hair brand.

Believe it or not, your friends to not want to see your posts about your new hair brand all day in your personal feed. You have to hold back some of your excitement and create a Facebook Business Page where you can start getting followers that are interested in your brand.

To get started, you must first create a business page.

Create Facebook Page

Create Facebook Page

We suggest choosing the Brand or Product option.

The proper category for hair extensions is Health/Beauty. Enter your hair brand name and then click “Get Started.”

Facebook Hair Brand

Make Your Facebook Page Shine!

Once your page has been created, you have some work to do.

The “Profile Picture” should be 160px X 160px. This is a great place to put your logo. Keep it simple!

The “Cover Photo” is 828px X 315px and can have a more dramatic design.

Make sure you “+ Add a Button” which gives you the opportunity to link to your website, send your page a message and a few other options.

Make sure to “Add a Short Description” so visitors know who you are and why they should “Like” your page.

Setup Facebook Page

Check out our Private Label Extensions Facebook Page if you would like to see what a page looks like when fully setup.

You have to have at least 25 Likes on your page to secure your Facebook URL. If you go to our page, you will see that our Facebook URL is Facebook.com/PrivateLabelExtensions.

This structure will help with your branding as it is in your best interest to have the same urls for your social media.

Private Label Extensions Facebook Page

Now that you have your Facebook page setup you can start marketing your products.

It might take a little while to build up your social proof with more “Likes, ” but everyone goes through this same problem.

I have never met someone that created a Facebook Page and started off with more than (1) Like. And it was probably their own.

The key to building up your brand on Facebook and every other platform is consistency.

Facebook Advertising

The quickest way to get your brand more attention is paid advertising.

Facebook has many different options to market your Facebook page, website or get customers to send you messages with questions.

You have to have your Facebook page setup first to begin.

Facebook Ads

The Facebook Ads dashboard can get a little intimidating because of all the options.

You don’t want to try and create ads in a hurry. Make sure you have time set aside to get an ad correctly setup.

Depending on the media you would like to promote there will be a promotion option for you. You might want to start by increasing your brand awareness and “Likes” for your page to increase your social proof.

Facebook Ads Dashboard

Spend Wisely

Don’t blow your entire budget on your first ad. We recommend spending as little as possible to test your results slowly.

It is great that you are excited about your brand, but you don’t want to make the common mistake of spending all your advertising funds too quickly. You want to test your results from a smaller campaign first.

If the campaign works out well on a small budget, then you can slowly increase your spending.

You will also want to learn about Facebook Retargeted advertising with the Facebook Pixel. This retargeted advertising method is a very powerful way to increase your sales when done correctly.

How to Sell Hair Extensions in the Facebook Marketplace

Last year Facebook created an easy way to sell a little bit of everything online with their Facebook Marketplace.

Think of it as like a “Craigslist” but with more credibility because it is connected to your personal Facebook profile.

In your area, you can list your hair extension products for sale online for free. We have a lot of clients around the USA that do this with really good results.

Add this to your how to sell hair extensions “To-Do” list!

How to sell hair extensions in Facebook Marketplace

Make sure to take great photos of the hair and even think about being in the picture.

When a potential customer sees a real person in a picture, it helps add to the credibility of the seller.

Facebook Messenger is used when a potential customer wants to get in touch with you about your hair. You can either send them a link to your website to purchase or if you have the hair on hand, you can meet them in a public place.

If you are a stylist, you might even get some new clients from this technique.

It is free. It is easy. There are NO excuses not to do this!

Sell Hair Extensions with Instagram

The next best thing to Facebook is Instagram!

Here are some basics on how to sell hair extensions on IG!

Your marketing strategy on Instagram will be more visual than Facebook. It is important to have a good mix of photo types and promotions to keep your followers interested.

Building up your Instagram page will take time. Research the best #HASHTAG strategies to use for your posts. It will help you get found and followed much faster.

Sell Hair Extensions on Instagram

Once you have your Instagram page registered it is important to correctly fill out an excellent description, your phone number, email, and address if available.

Try to create a schedule for your posts and promotions. If you want to stay systematic use a program like Later.com that allows you to schedule your posts for the future.

This scheduling technique can be fantastic if you can’t use social media during the day, you are on vacation and want peace of mind that your social media is running. We use a similar program here at Private Label Extensions, and it has helped grow our following tremendously.

Private Label Extensions Instagram

Instagram Orders

You can’t take payments on Instagram so having a hair extension website is crucial for successful transactions.

Getting an order request via your DM will sometimes happen, but the payment flow is not fluid. Many extra steps need to happen like sending PayPal invoices and manually updating tracking information.

The key is to grow a loyal following with informative and eye-catching posts. If you try to “sell” with every post, then you will eventually be un-followed.

Re-posting client photos is a MUST! Your customers will want to see what the hair looks like once it is installed.

The Instagram Stories is also a way to stay in front of your clients. Creating 5 – 10 stories a day can boost your visibility and brand awareness.

More Ways to Promote Your Hair Brand

Social media will be a big part of your online promotions. Especially when first starting out when you don’t have bigger budgets for advertising.

If you are just setting up your brand make sure also to create Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube accounts.

You should maximize your efforts with these platforms as well but make sure you focus on a few that you feel comfortable with to start. Getting huge followings on multiple platforms at once can be challenging even with a big budget.

YouTube is FANTASTIC for getting your brand more exposure, but you will want to have some decent equipment to create and edit videos. Once you learn how to sell hair extensions on YouTube, you will see the orders start flowing in!

Here is an example of a video we made showing an inside look at our office:

If you are great at styling hair, then make some video tutorials for your channel. Here are just a few suggestions:

  • Hair Care – How to look after your hair extensions.
  • Coloring – Best coloring techniques and examples of how the hair can color.
  • Wig Making – Create a beautiful wig using the hair extensions to showcase their versatility.
  • Sew-In Techniques – How to properly do a sew-in.
  • Product Video – Give your clients a closer look at the hair.

If not immediately, creating videos should be a part of your marketing strategy shortly after launching your brand. People are more visual than ever with short attention spans for reading long posts like this.

Email Marketing

A classic way to stay in touch with your customers is to create a newsletter.

We highly recommend the Atlanta-based company MailChimp. This email marketing service is the same company that sends out all the newsletters for all our brands.

They offer a free account up to 2,000 subscribers.

This fee service gives you plenty of room for growth. By the time you reach 2,000 subscribers, you will have received so much benefit from the service that you will beg them to take your money.

You can sign up here – Create MailChimp Account.

After you create your account, you will have access to the MailChimp dashboard. Your goal is to build your list of subscribers and provide them with excellent information in their inbox.

Here are some email campaign ideas:

  • Welcome Emails
  • Education Emails
  • Shopping-Cart Abandonment Emails
  • Newsletters
  • Blog Posts
  • Coupons or Specials

Growing your email list will play a big part in selling more hair extensions!

MailChimp Newsletter

Selling Online by the Numbers

Getting your first hair sale online is always the hardest. Knowing how to sell hair extensions online will help you reach your sales goals faster.

The key is to understand the numbers of how selling online works. Let’s go over the basics.

Conversion Rate

For every 100 visitors that visit your site, you will have (X) amount purchase. The national average for E-commerce stores is about 1%. So for every 100 visitors expect about one sale.

To reach the $142,350 of sales in a year you would need about 200 visitors a day with an average order value of $195 which we used for the equation.

Increase Traffic = Increase Sales?

Usually. If you are getting targeted visitors that are looking to purchase hair extensions, then the answer should be yes, you will increase sales.

Of course are variables. If your site is not mobile-friendly, don’t expect to sell a lot online. About 85% of hair extension buyers are making purchases on their mobile device.

If your website is slow and not well designed? That will hurt your sales as well.

Increase Average Sale

The average customer will purchase three bundles of sew-in extensions.

Upselling your clients with additional items like a closure, frontal, edge control or 3D mink lashes will increase your average ticket size.

This product technique is one of the fastest ways to increase your overall sales!

There are hundreds of variables when learning how to sell hair extensions. You have just to take it step-by-step and learn the basics.

Conversion Rate

Local Events & Hair Shows

Getting directly in front of your customers can make a big impact. Nothing can top a great personal connection with someone.

Have hair samples available for your clients to feel the hair and give them tips on styles and installation.

It is very important to understand how to make a great hair extension display to showcase your products!

Our company has presented at some local events as well as the Bronner Brothers Hair Show in Atlanta to help get our name out there. Did it help? You bet! We still do great business with clients we met at the shows over 2 years ago.

You can check websites like Eventbrite and Facebook to see what local upcoming events are coming up. The bigger shows like Bronner Brothers can be very costly so you might want to start out at a smaller event to plan for the big leagues.

Bronner Brothers Hair Show

Create More Traffic with Blogging!

You need a way to showcase your knowledge and connect with your customers. You will sell more hair if you start writing great blog posts for your website.

A blog will also give you another place to post your YouTube videos for your customers to see.

Writing great blog posts can be very time-consuming. The good news is that they will work for you in the search engines forever.

Google loves high-quality content. Don’t just write 200 words and click “Publish.” Focusing on informative information related to your hair products will let your visitors know you are very knowledgeable about hair. It is much easier to sell hair extensions to visitors after they know you are an expert in the field.

Here are some great topics you can write about for your hair blog:

  • How to Color Hair Extensions
  • Tips for a Great Quick Weave
  • DO’s and DON’S for Installing Hair Extensions
  • Wig Making Techniques
  • Your First Hair Purchase

Increasing traffic to your site will increase sales.

Ready to Start Selling Hair Extensions?

Starting your hair extension brand can be very rewarding. The key is not to make the upfront mistakes that can be very costly to your business. Keep your running expenses low and your motivation high! Learning different aspects of the hair business will help you learn how to sell hair extensions faster with better profits.

To finish this up let’s go over some Do’s & Don’ts of Selling Hair Extensions:

Don’ts

  • Put your website on a crappy E-commerce platform or have it hosted on a cheap server that is slow.
  • Accept risky transactions with customers requesting a shipping address not matching their billing.

    Can I have my own brand without having to use the company to do my website. Can you use more than one distributor? I plan to eventually open a brick and mortar to allow the customers to see the hair and I will be selling hair and skin care products.

    1. Mikey Moran says:

      You are more than welcome to build your own website! You are welcome to use as many distributors as you like. Even if you did get a website from us you have 100% control and could add your hair and skin care products. One major benefit of our websites is they already include all the product photos, descriptions and overall layout which can save a lot of time and money. But we do understand that people like to build their own and that is totally ok.

      1. Jeanetta Taylor says:

There is a $19.99 monthly hosting fee and with this, you will gain access to a free dropship membership.

    I have to say that I’m amazed by how much detail was put into this article. I know it must have taken lots of time, energy, and knowledge, some ☕, and probably even some long nights but much much gratitude for this. I haven’t even started cosmetology school yet but PLE keeps me with a pen and a pad, coming back for more. I was afraid and didn’t know where to begin at all that when I say this is like the blueprint to starting, marketing, growing, being encouraged in the hair business 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌😊 a few of your quotes ill take with me to keep myself going. “Key 🔑 is GETTING STARTED” “Planning ahead is very important”, “Consistency is 🔑 to building your brand”. The best part above all is that y’all are willing to educate us 100% of the way and FOR FREE. The support and the life of the group within PLE I feel the love. Thanks so much this is well overdue.!! Many will prosper from these blogs. Again thanks

  10. Zoe says:

    This was ultimately the blog post that gave me the confidence to launch my own hair company. I started doing hair at the age of 13 and had always dreamed of launching my own business but had no clue on where to start. At the age of 19, I had a very big Clientele and people would always ask me where I sourced my hair extensions from. I had never ordered hair from PLE hair before but after reading some of the blogs, and watching their YouTube videos, I figured the hair had to at least been decent. I took a major risk by telling my clients that I would officially start selling hair. I didn’t even have a trustworthy vendor at the time! (call me crazy but life is all about taking risks) . She trusted me enough to make the purchase and I directly bought the hair through the PLE WEBSITE. (Brazilian kinky curly 16-inch closure 20.22.24) . I was so nervous about receiving the hair, worrying about shedding, luster, Maintenance, and the overall quality of the hair. The moment I received the hair, I did everything that I could to test the hair!!!! ( bleach test strand, brutally running my fingers through the curls, burning the hair, washing the hair numerous of times, trying out different curl custards ) And I must say after Abusing the bundles, I fell in love! What made me even more ecstatic was my client’s feedback! She loved the hair and ended up buying another set of bundles (Brazilian body wave ). It took me years and years to come across a good trustworthy vendor. While Constantly being ripped off many times by Overseas vendors, I almost gave up. As of today, I can proudly say that the risk was well worth it. I have officially launched my website using the Dropship sister company. I’m taking baby steps while applying all the free knowledge; keeping in mind that Rome wasn’t built in a day. The blogs and hair biz podcasts from PLE have tremendously been a blessing to me. For anyone looking to start their own business, I highly urge you to take advantage of this FREE information. Failing to plan only means you’re planning to FAIL! I’m excited for what the future holds for this business as well as mine. Keep up the good work !!!

    Let me just say, I have a three-year-old son so it took me a little while to get through this article.😂 I’ve read certain areas more than once, even had to put it down and come back to it a few times. It is wonderfully written, every step is broken down so easily. I am an independent hairstylist, but also an aspiring beauty content creator and blogger. From doing research and being on social media I’m very familiar with the avenues suggested in this article for a successful business, but taking the extra step to break down different ways to use them in the manner in which you all did, is a complete genius to me! Single parent, so time and money are quite funny at times, but I’m always able to increase my knowledge of things so that when my time comes everything is on point. I must say I really learned so much from this and it has also motivated me in ways that I desperately needed!!

  12. Tally says:

    Can i have other items on my website even if I choose dropshipping for hair?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Yes, you are more than welcome to do so!

  13. Monique Long says:

    Hey, I’m interested in selling your hair extensions. How much will it cost for me to get started?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      It depends on what you are interested in. We offer different options to get you started. We offer wholesale as well as dropshipping, with our sister company dropship bundles. If you are looking to sell online we offer custom websites as well. If you have any other questions we can help you with, feel free to email us at [email protected]!

  14. Arlisha Roshan says:

    Hello, I have been purchasing hair from your company for a few years now even before when it was Luxury Hair Direct and discovered it through Dallas Christopher on Instagram I was trying to sell hair but wasn’t successful and got discouraged. Now I am ready to start selling hair again and re-launch my brand along with the lashes because I am a makeup artist and lash tech as well as a licensed cosmetologist. I love the dropshipping option now because I think that’s what was a roadblock for me is keeping hair in stock at home. Now I can do everything with one company even my website and e-commerce! The only question I have because I watched every video and read everything on the site…how do I get paid? Is the price on the wholesale list the price that my clients will see on my site and if that’s the price your selling it to me for what is my profit margin? How is the company making money helping me sell hair and vise versa? Once I understand that more clearly if it makes sense then ill be ready to get the ball rolling!

    1. Mikey Moran says:

      Hey, Arlisha!

      Excited you found us again! Our method is really simple. You SELL at retail and BUY at wholesale and keep the difference. We have set wholesale pricing for the hair on dropshipping. You set your own retail price and keep the difference. Example. The Malaysian Body Wave is about $23 for a 10″ bundle. You can set the price to $40 and make $17. You can set the price to $50 and make $27. It is totally up to you! You can also take our free Dropshipping Class that helps explain the process: Dropshipping Class

      1. Arlisha Roshan says:

        Thank you so much! I will be starting in a few weeks with getting my site built with you guys and the dropshipping process. Also, if I have my own domain can that be linked or embedded to the site so that everything is customizable?

        1. Private Label Extensions says:

          That is great to hear! Yes, it is best to secure a domain.

    2. Nya says:

      Make a profit. Make your prices more than what they sell it for on here because these prices are really cheap compared to others.

      1. Private Label Extensions says:

        That’s what makes this company great! We are a wholesale company, so anyone who is interested in having a company of their own will have a very large room for success.

  15. Kim Graves says:

    I would love to get into the hair selling business. Making wigs for people .

  16. Lakeyta says:

    I’m interested in drop shipping but how do we get photos to add to our social website?

  17. Akeila says:

    Do you guys offer different hair extension textures such as natural hair for black women? kinky, coily, afro? I am wanting to start a natural hair extension brand and I would like to use you guys to start building. If you don’t supply hair in any of those textures am I able to find my own supplier that does and use your website?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      That is great to hear! We offer a variety of hair styles including kinky curly, tight coil, and afro kinky. You may add any additional products to your own website including ours if you choose to use us as well as other suppliers.

  18. Sherrall Manigo says:

    Hi, if I use your website, can I add my cosmetics that I am looking to start along with the hair on to this website? What is the cost of you giving us a website?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      We love that you are thinking outside of the box. Once you have purchased one of our many hair extension sites and it is handed over to you, you are able to add whatever products you want to add to it. It will be 100% under your control.

  19. Latasha says:

    How many bundles should I start off with?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      That definitely depends on your budget. Keeping some of the most popular items at hand is the best way to so. If you have an online business, you are one step ahead. If you do not, you must look into widening your business perspectives. Our sister company, dropship bundles, has helped hundreds of consumers who are worried about inventory. We take care of inventory, shipment, and packing for you! It is one of the best options we offer. We have great hair extension websites that can help you on your way to success!

  20. Brianna says:

    Do you all wholesale mink hair? Or just regular Brazilian?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Our extensions come from Malaysia, Vietnam, India.

  21. Yolanda. K says:

    Hi, I’m interested in selling your hair extensions how much will it cost for me to get started?

    1. Yolanda. K says:

      Is it possible to get free samples to see for myself, because I live in New York

      1. Private Label Extensions says:

        Great thought on how to pursue starting your own business. We do offer a sample kit available for purchase for $19.99. It contains 5 pieces of our Brazilian hair extensions, cut into 4-inch wefts. In in, we provide our kinky curly, silky straight, body wave, loose wave, and deep wave.

    2. Private Label Extensions says:

      It depends on which route you would like to take your company and most importantly, your budget. Start-up costs for hair extensions vary. Having an online website is very popular, our dropship program offers many for you to choose from, if that is where you would like to start. We highly recommend purchasing a few bundles or a sample kit to try for yourself before moving forward.

  22. Kirby says:

    Hello,

    Outside of starting with the dropship part of the business, as a consumer how should we purchase the hair from your company to assure the quality of the hair is good quality hair? Should we just purchase a bundle deal to try the hair out?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Yes, at the moment we do not have a minimum for wholesale purchases. Purchasing a sample kit is the best way to do so as well as buying any other bundles you may want to sample.

  23. Rhyne Marks-Tinguee says:

    Do I need to register my on-line business with my state? Also, I read a response to a question about Tax ID/EIN and it was No. As a business making a profit, how would we go about filing employer taxes?

    Thank you,

    Rhyne

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      You would have to register your small business through your state and report your earnings through the IRS.

  24. Marcie M says:

    Hi! I’m very interested, I am a hairstylist/barber and my question is do you sell the men hair extensions as well? Men hair extensions are in demand now.

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Unfortunately, we do not provide that at the moment.

  25. Liz says:

    If I start with dropship for a year have you all build my website and if I decided to venture out on my own will I still own my website?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Once you have purchased a website from us, the $19.99 monthly fee applies to your website hosting. Purchasing your website through us waives the dropshipping fees, giving you full access to our membership. With that said, when you cancel your monthly payment, it will cancel out your hosting, which in turn will cancel out your website.

      1. Kirby James says:

        What if you want to keep the website but discontinue drop shipping and start keeping your own inventory? As long as u keep paying your web host fee of 19.99 a month….Will the website continue to be active?

        1. Private Label Extensions says:

          When you purchase a website from us, as long as you keep paying your hosting fees, you have a free access to your own dropship account.

  26. Chelsee says:

    Do you have to be a business owner or cosmetologist to start with your company?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      No you don’t have to. You can start from scratch with us. Having an online store is easy and we can help you set that up, if you want to expand your business in the future and have your own business stand, you are more than welcome to purchase wholesale through us!

  27. Salyma Gray says:

    This was helpful in every way possible and I will use the tips to make my business better. Majority of the steps, I already accomplished. My only challenge is getting the hair wholesale. I’m from New York and it’s hard trying to find an company that sells wholesale hair. I’m stuck at this point, what should I do?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      As of right now, we do not have a required minimum for purchases. You are able to buy any amount of our products to try for yourself. We provide clear edge controls and black edge controls.

  30. Ashley says:

    Also, you do give pointers on how much your product should be, based on your state so that you don’t overcharge and of course don’t undercharge?

    Hey, so I make wigs but I’ve been making them as they are ordered. I don’t supply the hair, I just have my clients supply the hair and then make the wigs for $100. I’ve been having people constantly messaging me asking me if I have any wigs for sale, but I don’t because I don’t provide the hair. I was wondering if there is a way I can get a limited supply of bundles to just start making different custom wigs and just post them for sale?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      We have the perfect solution for you. As of right now, we do not have a minimum on our website for any purchases made. We also provide different business extensions. If you currently do not have an E-commerce website, our sister company can help you get started! We have a few website options for you to choose from. If that is something you are interested in, the monthly membership fee covers fast hosting and it gives you free access to our dropship membership program.

We even have courses in our very own hair university to help with website edits once you have full control of your webpage. Let us know if you have any more questions and inbox us at [email protected]

  34. Keyona says:

    Hey, I am not a stylist but I was looking at the hair extension websites in which you do offer and I preferred the stylist website does it matter if I’m a stylist or not? Also, I would like to have photoshoot images of a few models instead of just a pic of the bundle or bundles can that be done? And how will I be able to set the prices of the items using my pricing list? Also, I live in the Caribbean but I use a shipping company to order items overseas; can I set the price of the bundles in my country’s currency?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      No, it does not matter, the look of the website is just the layout and you have an option to choose whichever you prefer. Once your website is pushed over to you, you have full control of changes to your website including product photos and currency.

  35. Anya says:

    Do you ship internationally? Africa to be precise. If no what is the workaround? I am very interested in starting a dropshipping business with you.

      We highly suggest starting off with a variety of lengths. A majority of our consumers mix bundle lengths for their sew-ins.

  66. Ashley Thornton says:

    May I come into your location and see the Hair and chat with someone before getting my membership?

  67. Anne Follett says:

    Hi!
    I am soon finishing cosmetology classes, getting licensed and will open a salon after I gain experience with an established salon. Your program seems ideal for me to start building name recognition and generate extra revenue too.

    Now, if I purchase the membership website with custom logo and provide it back to you when a customer places an order, how do you get paid? Do I pay upfront so I need operating capital for that, or do you have an alternative since it is a website I purchase from you?

    Please reply soon…I am motivated!

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Great questions and congratulations on your new business ventures. When you purchase a website from us, we have no control over your site, we only manage hosting. When your customers purchase from you, you then would log in to your free dropship account that comes with your hosting and process their order through us. You pay the wholesale price and we can ship your orders out to your customers with your branding (if you have any). Email us for more information at [email protected]! You should also check out our free Hair University courses as well.

  68. Diamond says:

    So do we have to sell everything or can we take off the clip ins and the tape ins?

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      You can simply sell what you prefer. You do not have to sell those for your business.
