Establishing and Launching Your Hair Business:
If you're only trying to sell hair on the side, then I recommend finding a great hair vendor, setting reasonable prices, and taking advantage of free marketing by advertising on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and in your community.
If you are trying to establish a hair business.....
Find out what type of hair you want to sell. From my experience, Body Wave, Deep Wave & Silky Straight are the most requested textures. I recommend having a variety of textures & lengths to offer your customers.
Do want to sell just bundles or other pieces? Most women buy bundles in 3's with a closure, or frontal.
Find a vendor. Find a vendor that has a variety of hair textures, lengths, great prices, and quality hair. This is the tricky part of getting started. You want to be extra careful with choosing a vendor. There are many hair vendors portraying to have quality hair extensions, but the hair tangles, mats, and/or sheds profusely. To have a successful hair business, providing quality virgin hair is a must!
Pricing your products. Keep your prices reasonable. Everyone loves a bargain and if you can offer your customers quality hair at affordable prices, you will surely win them over as loyal customers. Here is a great way of pricing your hair products. Add the:
Cost of hair
Cost of shipping from your vendor (add this if you're using the pr-ordering method)
Your cost of shipping for that specific product (you can offer free shipping on your website, by incorporating shipping in the prices)
Your profit (what you want to make from each sale)
Anything you're using to ship the hair. For instance, bundle wraps, hair tags, hair bags, etc. This is how to calculate those prices:
You paid $35.00 for 100 hair tags. So, divide 35 into 100 which will equal $0.35. You paid $0.35 for each hair tag. This is the amount you want to add when calculating your prices. Do the same for bundles wraps, hair bags, boxes, postcards, etc.
Bank Fees you will be charged a transaction fee from your vendor, and/or your credit card processor. Such as Paypal, Square, or your website hosting provider. Fees are usually between 2.6%-5% of your total order.
Choosing a name for your company. Keep your company name simple, catchy, and brandable. If you already have a name for your hair business in mind, ask yourself "Why this one?" Ideally, you want your business name to be short and catchy so it's easy for customers to remember. It's also a good idea to use basic spelling and avoid acronyms or abbreviations. Try to:
Limit your hair business name to 10-15 characters
Stay away from slang words
Make sure spelling is easy
Keeping your business name simple also makes it easier for customers to find you in Google search results or social media.
Trade name search. When you have a name for your company, you want to see if there's another company with that name in your state. Google search (trade name search for your state) if there is no other company with the name you've chosen in your state, then you can move on to the next step.
Branding your company. Once you have completed the steps above. Now, begin branding your company, with a logo, website address (URL) (godaddy.com is a great website to purchase your URL for your website), website, business cards, hair tags, hair bundle wraps, etc. Canva.com is a great marketing tool where you can create your very own logo, pictures for advertising, business cards, etc. and best of all it's free!
Creating a website. You can choose from Shopify.com, Wix.com, Bigcommerce.com, etc. for your website hosting service. Heavenly Hair by Nicole website is hosted by Wix.com
For each page, you create on your website, be sure to enter metatags & descriptions. This will help your website to have a higher ranking in search engines such as Google. Higher rankings mean your website will be found easily. Each page should have relevant metatags/descriptions (learn more about metatags online blogs). If your website page is about lace frontals your metatags should be something along the lines of "virgin hair lace frontals" body wave lace frontals" ear to ear lace frontals" etc. and your description should be similar to "quality virgin hair lace frontals available in body wave, loose wave, deep wave with 14"-24" available"
Make your company official. Register your company/name and get an EIN (employer identification number). Visit irs.gov to obtain an EIN and google search "register my business in (your state)" Register your business as an LLC.
Start Selling Hair! Now that your business is official you are ready to start selling hair. Launch your website and begin advertising to everyone and everywhere.
