What does everyone think about hair stylists selling hair? For example, I saw from IG that Ming sells her Snob Life hair and several other mostly Atl stylists sell hair as well. Is it possible that the hair could be a good quality if the stylist is willing to put their name and reputation on the line?

I think just because the stylist sells the hair doesn't necessarily mean the hair is good or even worth it. My cousin got her hair done in Alt and paid for the hair the stylist was selling on top of the installation that came to 580. She loved her hair she loved her install but after that week she was pissed. She states that the "prettyproperhair" the stylist was selling was horrbile. She said it shed so bad it was ridiculous. I think you should also be cautious on purchasing stylist hair to even when the claim THERE HAIR IS SO GOOD. There also in a business.

It's been this way since mid 2012. New people who own "hair" companies purchase other companies hair to bash them in reviews, on fooltube. The industry is a mess! Everyone was sold the dream lol. Look at any trend, every AM follows the original idea, and ruins it for everyone.

Rant over!

When the market gets saturated that means that there's a lot of people about to stop making money. I think it's good in a sense because we'll be able to find the cheapest people with good quality, and it'll force people like Sassy Mitchell and Bella Dream Hair which we all know have crazy markups to lower their pricing

I'm gonna try Genesis Hair (i've heard bad things but a friend always ordered and never had a problem), or this new girl who is local. This new local girl tho, her site and media looks like sh*t. One of those geocity pages,, i swear is what it looks like. If i'm paying same or less than Beauty Store hair to try it out then i honestly don't mind


How would an over saturated market cause anyone to lower their prices? Just as the original poster said, the majority of these companies are fly by night. Larger companies aren't intimidated by that. Do you think that clothing retailers lower their prices to compete with cheap no name brands? The market is over saturated but I dislike the idea of telling folks how to run their business. With so many options out there, if one finds that a brand is too expensive or not worth the markup, they can choose another brand and move forward.

I know what my hair budget is. If someone has hair that I want but it's outside of that budget, I simply don't buy it...shop around, move on to the next. But I highly doubt that the cheaper companies (who usually offer substandard products or simply don't know the "worth" of what they have) will force the bigger companies who have been around for a while to chop prices.


It's basic supply and demand. If there are only 3 brands of cokes and you like coke, you pick from those 3 brands. One is the lexus of coke, the other is mercedes, and one is toyota. Some people are loyal to brands but many shop around. Those 3 brands are price setters. Now add 100 more vendors, business is taken away from them and they will have to adjust prices or quality to keep the same business. It's like when a wal mart sets up shop next to local businesses

Supply is up, demand the same, prices go down. Supply low, demand high, higher prices. Just google it.

I have seen average women (also men) begin selling hair and make very attractive profits in a reasonably short period of time. I don't understand how they are ALL finding this hair if the reputable suppliers are so hard to find. Maybe those customers who are not well informed on hair and don't want to bother with research...may not care if the hair is actually virgin, remy or something in between as long as it looks good and lasts long enough. ???

Just about every social media site is full of new online hair extension business owners, every week ten more new hair extension businesses pop up, and you can definitely tell that they are new business just by looking at their followers and the activity on their social media pages. 

The hair extensions industry is now saturated it wasn’t as saturated in 2010. I’ve met 70-80 year old women selling hair extensions. I even met a 78-year-old man selling hair extensions from the trunk of his car. There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not flooded with offers on social media to purchase hair extensions. It’s quite obvious the hair extension industry is making a ton of money and there’s a lot more to be made especially with new hair extension trends, but it amazes me how some people can just wake up one day and say “hey I think I’m going to start selling hair extensions” I take my hat off to those people because unlike others they are making an effort to become an entrepreneur, but what I have a problem with is some of these people not doing their research on hair extensions or the industry, these people I’m referring to are in it just to make money. Not all hair extension sellers are like this but you all know the ones I’m talking about and they know who they are as well. These people selling hair extensions just to make money are the ones making it bad for others who are really into this business as a career.
When I see hair suppliers selling hair @ 2 bundles for $60.00 (and various other low prices) claiming that the hair is Remy Virgin hair, I have a problem with that because as most of you hair sellers know there is no way you can get Authentic Remy or Virgin hair at such a discounted price from the wholesaler that your able to sell it basically for $30.00 a bundle.
Here’s my thought and a suggestion, either you actually believe that your wholesaler is telling you the truth that they are selling you Remy or Virgin hair and you’re not knowledgeable about hair extensions or the industry and you believe whatever your wholesaler tells you about hair extensions, or you just don’t care and you’re in it to make money. My suggestion is, make yourself knowledgeable about the industry and if you do know your hair extensions brand is not Remy or Virgin then just say it to the people who are buying from you. Just because your hair extensions aren’t Remy or virgin doesn’t mean no one will buy from you. People use certain hair extensions for various reasons. Some people may only need hair extensions for a day or week or maybe they can’t afford the most expensive hair extensions but they still want to look good, you never know what someone’s reason for buying your hair extensions are unless you ask. Instead of lying to or deceiving your customers talk about the benefits of using your hair extensions. Like how long they will last (the truth) how they hold heat etc etc. People will respect you more by telling them the truth wouldn’t you rather have a customer coming back to you or referring you instead of not coming back and spreading the word about how bad your extensions are. You can keep selling the same hair extensions but you should invest in authentic hair extensions as well. People will buy both but at least they know they’re getting the truth from you about which brand is best for them to purchase.
If you’re going to be in the hair extensions industry, keep it real otherwise the industry will get a bad review. If you’re looking to get into the industry do your research first.
