1.Those are all good questions. FIRST and for most you need to educate yourself on the different types of hair and what texture suits what race or in better terms “hair type“, because when selling hair you will get all types of people. Those who have been wearing virgin hair for years upon years and those who are new and probably want to ask you every question under the sun because they want you to ensure them that they are not wasting their money.
2.Write your business plan down!! expectations you want to meet. expenses…shipping,packaging,if you want to offer services such as dying hair for customer or sealing hair weft for them etc. How much you will have to invest before you see any money. How much you’d like to make per week…month… how much you want to sell the hair for?? etc
3. After you have reassured yourself you know enough to get yourself started next is finding a good wholesale hair supplier!! Do your research!! There are TONS and TONS of ppl offering what you are looking for. You will need a lot of money to sample different suppliers to see what you feel most comfortable with selling. Do your own “quality” test. If it passes then sell it. You don’t want to be selling hair that you didn’t know wasn’t good because you didn’t test it.
3. You have knowledge and product now you need clientele. Start putting a buzz in peoples ears. Maybe even before you find a supplier so they know you will be coming out with something soon. No clientele means no money. So you need to know who you’re targeting. Caucasian,spanish, african american… EVERYONE…. Don’t get ahead of yourself though. Start small(2kilo-3kilo of hair) and as you grow more business and make more money you can offer different types of hair.
4. After you have begun set a date to re-evaluate and see what improvements may need to be made if any.
Since I own my own hair company I should know a little something something lol. Hope Ayhair helped you out.
Remember it takes time to know a supplier well cos you will see suppliers with very different quality and price range.
take your time, have a good one!!!
