What Are Hair Vendors?
Hair vendors are suppliers that sell human or synthetic hair to the public or to a wholesaler for resale. Purchasing from a wholesaler makes good business sense because it generally includes a wide selection to choose from, additional support, and access to many add-on products such as conditioning agents and cutting scissors.
One of the best go-to suppliers for wholesale hair, Mega Look Hair offers a premium range of styles and lengths to choose from.
How to Find Hair Vendors?
To begin with, you should research potential suppliers who can provide the products or services for your private label hair extensions. Make sure that you compare prices, delivery terms, and customer service policies before committing to a contract.
Additionally, it is important to review any clauses related to branding rights so that you know exactly how much freedom you have when promoting your own products or services.
How to Develop Your Own Hair Extensions Product
Once you have chosen a supplier, it is time to create your private label extensions. Develop comprehensive product descriptions that accurately reflect the features and benefits of your private label hair products.
Make sure to include any relevant information such as:
- materials used
- and pricing.
Additionally, use high-quality images and video to help customers better understand the value of your private label hair extension offerings.
Starting Your Private Label Hair Extensions Brand
Have you ever wondered how extensions are made for the hair industry? Well, you’ve come to the right place! It’s helpful when starting a private label hair extensions brand to understand the process from which they’re made.
Let’s take a look:
Understanding Different Types of Extensions
The first step in understanding how extensions are crafted is to understand the different types of extensions available. There are two main categories when it comes to hair extensions:
- human hair is naturally sourced from various parts of the world such as India or Brazil, and is then sorted by length and color before being used for extension production.
- synthetic hair is made from various materials such as nylon or acrylic fibers, which are then treated with special chemicals and heat so that they look like human hair.
The choice between human and synthetic depends on personal preference.
Once you have selected your type of extension, it’s time to start crafting them! The most common type of extension process is called “weaving”, where small sections of natural or human-like hairs are sewn onto a track (or base).
This weaving technique creates a full head of extensions that can be worn up or down depending on personal preference. For example, if someone wants long, flowing locks they can opt for long tracks woven throughout their existing natural hair; whereas if someone wants a more subtle look they can opt for shorter tracks that blend in seamlessly with their existing hairstyle.
Which Hair Extensions Wear The Longest?
Choosing a type of hair extension to start a brand with also depends on how long you expect your product to last. This prevents complaints, returns, and negative social media feedback.
Consistently, clip-in hair extensions seem to tick all the right boxes for best non-damaging method, most time-saving and easiest method, Here are a few more methods, as well as how long they’re expected to wear once put in place:
- 4-8 weeks: Tape in hair extensions
- 6-8 weeks: Sewn-in hair extensions
- 3-4 months: Fusion hair extensions
- 3-4 months: Microlinks
- 3-6 months: Clip-in hair extensions
- 10-12 months: Wigs
Taking Care of Your New Hair
In addition to weaving processes, there are other steps involved in creating quality extensions such as cleaning, conditioning, cutting & styling:
- Cleaning ensures that all dirt and oils are removed from the strands before installation.
- Conditioning restores moisture levels.
- Cutting & styling allows clients to customize their look even further.
- Installation makes sure that everything fits perfectly on the client’s head before wearing them out in public.
It’s important to note that all these steps must be done carefully as not following proper procedures could lead to damage or breakage over time!
