Wigs - Why some wigs are very cheap vs some are very expensive

Wigs prices range in market from $10 - thousands of dollars. Most buyers wonder why their is such a wide dispersion in prices of wigs. What is the difference between natural looking front lines, or some fancy loose curl wigs. What is the formula for these price differences. 

First basic difference in wigs is the hair type. If the hair is natural virgin hair, it is much more pricier than synthetic wigs. Second price difference is use of natural front lace which is hand tied. If the front lace is hand tied and is natural looking, it adds more cost to the wig. Third major difference is whether a wig is full lace or front lace. Full lace wigs require much larger area to be hand tied. Front lace wigs typically using wefted hair which are stitched in the back portion. Fourth price difference comes from the color of the hair. As hair color becomes lighter, it become expensive as it needs to be bleached. During the bleaching process, hair loses weight so more hair weight is required to do the same quantity. Fifth price difference comes from the curls in the hair. Steam or natural curls both are more expensive compared to a basic wig. 

Another major difference comes when you purchase wholesale wigs or stock wigs or custom wigs. If you are buying wholesale wigs, the prices are lower. Stock wigs are standard measurements and cheaper compared to custom wigs. 

Wigs for specialized purposes like Alopecia etc are more expensive compared to regular wigs. Please write to me if you are looking for Wholesale Wigs and have any more questions.

Platinum Blonde Hair Extensions

Platinum blonde is the finest & most difficult color to produce naturally in hair extensions without using the dye. It is the highest level of bleach refinement that you can do on a natural 1B hair and requires adequate balance between shine and color to make it look extremely nice. Our natural process does not use any dye so the platinum blonde hair can be dyed in future to other colors without a challenge. To make a platinum blonde, we need to very slowly bleach a very high quality, healthy remy hair at a well maintained temperature. The hair progressively bleaches to color 2, 4, 6 .. etc before reaching the final color. Given that it takes longer to bleach a natural black or brown hair to platinum blonde hair, utmost care is taken to maintain the gentleness of bleach combined with a careful observation of the time and temperature. After doing this process, the hair is dried and combed to give it a final shape and is ready for use by the client. It goes through high quality checks to make sure that the properties of the hair are consistently maintained. Stylists and salon owners typically can bleach the hair further to give it an appropriate tone for the client. Given it is a very controlled process of decoloring of a natural hair, the ability of the hair to absorb future color is fully maintained.

How much money is required to start a hair extensions business

Lot of folks want to start a small hair extension business of their own. One of the most important question which I get asked is - What is the money required, and how should I spend it. Should I spend the money in purchasing hair extensions stock, testing hair samples (how many samples should I test), or build hair boxes, or print cards or launch a marketing campaign. My basic advise to all of them is - What you are comfortable with risking. Business has risks, and doing business requires you to be taking that risks. If you cannot risk that money, start small, dont spend money in fancy marketing campaigns but spend it in meeting customers. If you can risk money, spend it in identifying the right vendors and building your customer connects / brands. Dont overspend your money in building the most fancy online store. If you are new, you need to first build your experience by meeting customers physically and than move to electronic channel. If you are a salon and hair stylists, focus on your clients and see what they need. Another very important element is how much inventory should you keep. Firstly, you need to have a good vendor connect who is willing to help you a little bit if you have unsold inventory in particular textures or types. If not, you will be stuck with the inventory in not moving products very soon. And that discovery can be very expensive. So focus on getting the right vendor. Importing cheapest from Alibaba or from some unknown vendor may look like a great business decision, it is also a very risky one as you can get stuck in expensive hair inventories. In Summary, only invest as much as you are comfortable, build test markets fasts, and follow success.

Adding capabilities and product lines to support Salons / Hair Stylists

Prarvi manufacturing of hair and hair pieces is focused on providing quality services, products and income addition to hair stylists and salons. We started with an idea that high-quality products will attract repeated business for our clients and hence we focused on that. We have overtime added variety of schemes and products lines to support the needs of the hair-stylists and salon owners. We have upgraded our quality further and added new capabilities in India for the manufacturing of complex wigs. I come from a background in chemical engineering, so I could understand hair from that perspective. But over time, I developed my deep insight in designing and understanding the hair products and built high-quality net sourcing. I developed clearer patterns of knotting of hairs and precise lines of hair patterns for invisible front lines. I further added manufacturing of front lace, full lace and all other patterns in India when everyone around me said that you should manufacture this in China. It has been a fascinating journey of knowledge, design and capability build out for me to manufacture complex hair pieces. I am still perfecting the art and science of wig measurements, hair loss piece measurements and converting them into the best possible design with right mechanical and aesthetic properties. While purchasing from China could have been a very easy route, I was never sure that I will be able to make a quality promise to my clients. My promise to be true to myself never allowed me to take shortcuts on the manufacturing side and I think that has what has led to the popularity of my brand, my client's businesses and the success that Prarvi has achieved over last 30 months.

Building Salon Business - Growing with Hair extensions

1. How to add Salon Income

Good salons owners are always looking for Niche services to add and provide their customers with unique products which are true to their quality, organic and natural. If salon owners follow the basic rules of business, maintain quality and differentiated services, they can not only make a greatly successful salon but retire as a multi-millionaire when they sell their salons.

2. Choosing right hair extensions to carry for additional salon income and quality

While many salon owners want to offer hair extensions, many of them fall for poor quality products which are either synthetic mix or non-organic hair. Those hair tend to mess with the natural hair and lead to a dissatisfied customer. The salon owners typically end up buying these products on websites like Ali-express, Amazon or marketplaces as well as a lot of overseas suppliers who are fly by night operators. If you want to maintain distinctiveness, and sell true quality to your customers, you need to carry Prarvi Hair products which include the variety of hair extensions and custom wigs. 

3. Why & How to carry custom wig lines

While salons can carry extensions, and customize it for their customers themselves, they can also carry custom wig line. Prarvi provides complete back-end support for Salons to sell high-quality hair extensions as well as wigs, closures and custom hair pieces. All salons need to do is to setup time and take training to learn about measurement and hair colors. Custom work requires finesse and helps salons distinguish themselves from the competition. You are more likely to get a permanent audience if you can provide variety as well as custom work to your customers. 

4. Why Quality is important and how to distinguish

Most salon owners who try to start the hair extensions services are worried about few things. 1. Quality of the products 2. Installation Training. These are both very important and valid questions. It is very important to identify the right long-term supplier - 1. Reliable products 2. Good product range 3. Custom capabilities 4. Shipping and logistics from USA 5. Reasonable exchange/return policies. This requires that Salon Owners should pick local suppliers who can provide all the above. The price premium paid over the overseas supplier is minuscule compared to quality gap and liability risks. For the installation training, it is very important to understand the type of clientele and which type of extension is popular in the area. Based on your need, Prarvi works with trainers to provide such training in your area. 

As Salon owners strive to make a multi-million dollar business, it is very important for them to add hair extensions as a category and work with the right partners. Luckily Prarvi not only provides products, but it also provides a complete support system for salon owners to succeed.

What is Non Remy Hair

 

 

Hair cuticles are very small tiny scales which are invisible to human eyes on our hair. These scales like feather are organized in one direction on our head. They play an important role in retaining moisture in our hair. When we bleach our hair, we open these cuticles using chemicals and than bleach the hair. When we condition our hair, we smooth out the cuticles so the hair becomes soft and shiny. 


The cuticles are always aligned in similar dimension when it remains on our head. However, when we take the hair away from our head, until we maintain the direction of the hair by tying it properly at the roots, chances are that we may end up mixing the hair directions. Once the hair direction is mixed, it can can cause hair tangling because all the cuticles tangle with each other. That hair is called Non Remy.

Different types of hair

Hair texture, the starting edge of everything related to “HAIR”. Today I will like to quench the thirst of my readers about “What are different types of hair texture?” The texture of hair is determined by the thickness of hair strand or its circumference or the condition of the cuticle.  One of the basic differences is that the circumference of fine hair is small and has a closed cuticle. Whereas coarse hair has a large circumference and the cuticle tends to be more open, making the hair to be more porous. Now we will study the three main type of hair texture in detail.

 Fine hair:

 * Fine hair looks almost translucent when held in the light.

* When a strand of fine hair is rolled between index finger and thumb, it is hardly felt; it would feel like a strand of silk.

* Fine hair has only two hair structures, namely the cuticle and the cortex.

* They look thin and tend to break easily.

*They can get damaged easily.

*They have the smooth consistency and are shiny, thus cannot hold hairstyles.

* It’s usually oilier than other textures and can often be over-moisturized as a result.

 Medium hair:

 *This hair texture is neither coarse nor fine.

* When the hair is rolled between index finger and thumb it feels like a cotton thread. It is neither tough nor stiff.

* This hair has two layers of hair structure, namely the cuticle and the cortex and might have medulla as well.

* They do not tend to break easily.

* They also have a bounce.

 Coarse hair:

 * Coarse hair strand when rolled between index finger and thumb, feels wiry and hard. We can actually hear hair as it is rolled back and forth.

* It is considered the strongest of all hair textures as it has the largest circumference.

* It has all three layers of the hair namely the cuticle, the medulla, and the cortex.

* They are rough and heavy; they tend to hold several hairstyles quite well.

* It contains lots of protein which can make it brittle/dry.

 Knowledge of hair texture is very necessary as if one knows about their type, it is very easy to choose any product, style, and various care methods for one's hair. PRARVI have hair extensions for almost all types of hair so that one can style themselves in the most natural look.

BRAZILIAN HAIR VERSUS INDIAN HAIR

 

 

When it comes to hair extensions there are varieties of options available in the market like Indian, Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian ………………..so on. Every company throws a phrase claiming their hair to be the original, but as a layman, everyone has the right to know that they are getting a product worth their money and is best for them. Today, I felt like giving you the details of two main type of hair type, and to educate my readers so they can differentiate between two and choose.

 

INDIAN HAIR The 100% Remy hair from India, which is used by PRARVI itself, is legitimately gathered from ethical sources. This hair is highest on market nowadays. Indian hair is the natural choice for many because of its versatility and ready availability on the market. It also has a very fine density. Not only is it naturally airy, bouncy and light but can also be styled and curled very easily. Even with just minimal hair products, this type of human hair is still able to move effortlessly. Its other property is the ability to blend perfectly with other hair textures. Naturally being a dark brown, it blends in with virtually all hair types, especially African American. Indian hair is available from the silky types to those that are slightly coarse.

BRAZILIAN HAIR It is the most counterfeited hair on the market. Generally, Asian hair is dyed to give Brazilian look. Brazilian hair is durable, but it also very dense, so it poses some limitations in terms of movement and styling. Curly Brazilian hair holds tighter curls, making them stiff and almost impossible to flat iron. Brazilian hair has a natural shine and low-to-medium luster. The texture of this type of hair also makes it less frizzy. For its durability, it is also very easy to maintain.

Who wins the race? If we compare both the two type of hair for better compatibility with African American hair, we will notice that they both blend well. Therefore, the Brazilian hair battle versus virgin Indian hair finishes with a tie. However, according to experts, Indian hair is much easy to maintain as it is naturally airy, bouncy and light. Moreover India is the only place in the world that has commercial quantities of hair from one billion people, and they as a ritual donate it to the temple (Donation of hair in front of God is a symbol of religious devotion and surrender of ego in India……that has turned into an extraordinary economic resource). While it is not the case with Brazilian hair, it is in limited quantity, so it is counterfeited most. PRARVI deals in the ethically collected unprocessed Indian virgin Remy hair.
