If you’re thinking about starting a hair business, this blog post is for you! I’m going to tell you what not to do.  I’ve compiled five things that are surefire ways to fail in the wig world.  If these are avoided, success can be achieved! 

1.  Not doing research 

So you’re thinking about starting a wig business? Not doing research is not a good idea. Research will help you start the right way with the right supplies, which in turn will make your business more successful. You can’t be that person who buys things they don’t need or doesn’t know how to use! I want to help you avoid this situation by providing some insight into what’s involved in researching an industry before diving in head first. 

2. Don’t put in the work

Remember nothing comes from nothing, so if you want something do something. You have a business idea, you’re excited to start it. But before you can even get started, there’s a million things that need to be done and the thought of doing them all is overwhelming. So what do you do? Put in the work! Exactly, the more time and effort put into your new hair enterprise, the better off your business will be.

3. Not understanding your audience 

For many people, the thought of owning their own hair business would be a dream come true. The truth is that it requires dedication and hard work to succeed in this business. Take the first step and start understanding your audience. Without knowing who you are targeting, how can you know what they need from a business like yours? Every girl who wants bundles and wigs is not your audience.

4. Not asking for help

5.Wrong business model

Starting a business can be difficult, and there are many pitfalls that could cause your company to fail. One mistake entrepreneurs often make when starting their own endeavor is choosing the wrong model for themselves. I’m here today with some advice on how not to! Ask yourself this: does my chosen business reflect who I want as clients? If they don’t match up then maybe it’s time to think about rebranding.

Rebranding can help you out in more ways than one. Picking the right person who knows what they are doing to help you is extremely important. And let me tell you that the wig coach knows her shit and that is why she is offering the bundles to bills mini workshop to help other women rise up and become the best hair entrepreneur they can be.

 So, you want to start your own hair business? Don’t do these 5 things. You need research, understanding of the market and audience, dedication to put in work for it, and ask for help when needed! And don’t forget about a solid business plan that includes all the necessary components: target customer segments; marketing strategy; product development process; pricing model or structure.
