Hair is gods priceless gift and is important as the other parts of the body. A person without hair on his head is called bald – headed, this leads to inferiority complex.

Bald –headed person always tries to acquire hair by spending great amounts of money on medicines and doctor's visits.

For women, hair is an extremely important part of their total self-image. Many women today find themselves devoting countless hours trying to hide their hair loss problem, while also attempting to maintain their self-esteem. In this regard the human hair industry is offering solutions through hair extension and wigs.

The global market for hair extensions is expanding at an incredible rate, much like the celebrity hairdos in magazines. Hair has been ‘donated’ for use by others for centuries, but the increasing customer demand for thicker hair is prompting suppliers to source more human hair than ever before.

As conscious consumers, it’s important for us to know the journey our purchases take to reach us, so we can choose only sustainably sourced and ethically manufactured goods. But how mindful are we of the hair we share?

Unsettlingly, there are no standards or monitoring of the procurement of hair around the world. As a result, hair may be taken against people’s will or understanding of what will happen to it.

So what do we need to be aware of when it comes to the hair we share? And what can be done to ensure the big business of hair extensions remains honourable as well as profitable?

The global trade in human hair and its products is soaring and becoming a major industry. Celebrities are increasing the popularity of using real hair to supplement their own.

The celebrity culture has made hair extensions more popular and everyone wants hair from India. In the international level the top exporters of human hair wigs are China, Indonesia, Hong Kong SAR, U.S.A. and Italy. The total export value is about 1,168,485,962 US dollars.

On the other hand the top importers of human hair wigs are U.S.A., Japan, U.K., France and Republic of Korea. The total value of world import is about 985,819,210 US dollars.1 As far as the export of human hair, worked; wool / animal hair and other tex.mat, prepared for wigs etc., is concerned the total export quantity in the world during 2011 was 16,194 tonnes which was 12,059 tonnes in 2010 as can be observed from next Table.

http://vcputtur.com/wp-content/Downloads/Project-Reports/HUMAN-HAIR-BUSINESS-INDUSTRY-ININDIA.pdf Newly-released hair extension statistics reveal that almost 90% of women who wear extensions keep them a secret from friends and family.

The research, undertaken by Hairtrade.com discovered that over a third of women (34%) use hair extensions as a regular part of their beauty regime, but 87% of those questioned didn’t tell anyone they were wearing them.2 More than three quarters of those polled (76%) said that they wore extensions to add volume, with other reasons for wearing them including a desire to look more glamorous, the ability to change your style quickly and the fact they could be applied at home.

One woman who participated in the survey said: “It’s not that I keep my extensions a secret, but they’re just so good nowadays that no one can tell it’s not my own hair.

“It used to be a beauty product that only celebrities had, but now it is much more accessible to everyday people and there really does seem to be something out there for everyone.”

So goes the global supply chain for human hair, a market that is growing at an astonishing rate of 40 percent annually. Great Lengths Hair Extensions, one of the largest human hair venders in the industry, reports a 70 percent growth over the past five years.

According to a report by the Professional Beauty Association, the past two years have seen a

28.5 percent increase in the number of U.S. salons that offer hair extensions.

http://www.hji.co.uk/hair/hair-extension-statistics-reveal-90-women-keep-secret/ The boom has been fueled by two major influences: celebrity culture and a wave of new technology for applying the extensions.

While American women once hid the fact that they outsourced their fuller hair styles, a new generation of female starlets, including Jessica Simpson, Brittany Spears and Fergie, openly admits to wearing other women’s hair. Now the long-held celebrity secret of human hair extensions, in which tresses of imported locks are sewn, beaded or glued onto the follicles of hair beside the scalp, is out in the open.

“People talk about having extensions now,” said Genevieve Houle, manager of Barbie’s Hair World in Queens, N.Y. “It used to be a personal thing, like asking someone what bra size they wear. Now people say to each other, ‘where do you get your hair?’ It’s not taboo anymore.” The effect of the extensions is to increase fullness and length. Women with short or thin hair can suddenly have hairstyles they never dreamed of. The added hair looks healthy for an average of four months before it dries out from lack of nutrients, which are replenished when hair is growing.

Until recently, real human hair was too expensive for many women who wanted extensions. They had to settle for cheaper synthetic hair. In both cases, the hair was sewn together in tracks and then attached to the client’s head. But a new technique called “strand application” has made extensions look better and last longer.

With strand application, small bits of keratin, a protein naturally found in healthy hair, are fused to the client’s existing hair, several strands at a time. The extensions look and feel just like natural hair and stay in place for anywhere from four to six months before the hair dries out and has to be discarded.

Upscale salons, which always offered human hair, often processed in Europe, which is pricier, still charge a premium for extensions. Alexander Maud, stylist at Mizu Salon in Boston, says he charges anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000 for a full head of extensions. His clients can spend over $1,000 on hair alone, he added.3 But now low-end salons are offering human extensions using the old weave technique with packages of human hair sourced from Asia that are much cheaper. Discount beauty supply stores market full heads of “100% Indian Hair” for $60.4 With the market for human hair growing so quickly, some worry that the boom may have a hidden human toll.

“We don’t really know how all this hair is being taken,” said Susie Smith, chief executive of Hollywood Hair Extensions, a salon and distribution company. “We have heard small bits and pieces about people being attacked for their hair or selling it to feed their families, but we’re not really talking about it.” While there is a huge profit to be made on Indian locks, there is no monetary compensation for the Indian women who donate their hair to temples as an act of faith. Many women have no idea they are part of an expanding industry that crosses several international borders and is nearly impossible to regulate.

According to trade figures released by the United Nations, between 2009 and 2011, China tripled its imports of Indian hair, from 363 kilograms (800 pounds) to 1.1 million kilograms (2.4 million pounds).5 In 2013, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported an annual median wage of $23,140 for all hairdressers, hairstylists and cosmetologists. Employment opportunities were predicted to grow 13% for this occupation from 2012-2022, according to the BLS.

Based upon the growing interest of people (women and men) in hair extensions or wigs, one can see the interest in hair is nearly 3 times higher today than in 2005 while the interest for wigs has slightly decreased. This growth in interest for extensions is one of the positive factors for the business; it is still a growth market. The most important countries where people are interested in Hair Extensions are: the United Kingdom, Australia and The United States, but also in South Africa there is a significant interest.

Where for Hair Extensions the interest increased in the UK this year, in the USA and South Africa the interest declined. With respect to wigs, the absolute no1 country since 2005 are the United States, But South Africa shows an increasing interest for wigs the last three years!

Of course you need to perform a more detailed market research for your own specific situation, but this data shows there are still interesting growth areas. And the interest for products is not the same in all the countries. If you use this knowledge, you can still enter the market and earn a fair share of income.

Your clients are less and less looking for hair extensions in general, the offer of hair extensions is huge and you need to differentiate yourself. Good chance you will not be able to serve all 2.4 billion women, but if you focus on a certain niche, a special place of the market, you will have a great position. This niche can be in products, for example only clip ins or only genuine Brazilian Human Hair extensions.

But you can also differentiate yourself in the service you offer, like next day delivery or service at home. Perform your research, take note of the offer from your competitors and talk with your clients. Know what they want and what they miss in the product or service offer from your competitors. And focus on this part. You will build up trust and a happy customer base!

This refers directly to the previous item, if you keep on investing in the products and services you offer; you will be able to outperform the competition. Do not follow a copy paste tactic, but be original. Adapt existing concepts in the way your clients are looking for. For example, instead of before and after pictures, make a short movie (60 seconds) and let the client comment on it. Know everything and everybody who is of importance in your niche and make sure they know you also!

The growth of the population will not stop, but in some areas the elderly people will outpace the young ones. So check how the evolution of the demographics in your geographical market. Benefit from this knowledge, by or shifting away to a younger market, or adapt yourself and offer solutions for the elderly.

Today, hair is more than just a symbol: it is big business. From India to Peru, the human hair trade has spread across the globe, and it has the UK in its grasp. Last year HM Revenue and Customs recorded more than £38m worth of hair (human, with some mixed human and animal) entering the country, making the UK the third biggest importer of human hair in the world.

Despite the recession the UK extension industry is booming, with hair extension companies claiming it is worth between £45m and £60m (according to London based industry research firm IBISWorld, revenue from hair and beauty salons will be £3.64bn in 2012Great Lengths Hair Extensions, who supply more than 1,000 salons in the UK, report a staggering 70% growth in the past five years. And according to Dawn Riley from Balmain Hair, which sells extensions to thousands of salons and hundreds of wholesalers, this is only the beginning. "It's still an emerging market. We are now seeing the growth that colour [hair dye] saw 30 years ago."6 In the upmarket central London salon Inanch, a full head of Great Lengths extensions costs around £900, and lasts up to six months. And while profits from cuts, colouring and blow drys have remained static, in 2012 the salon's hair extension business has grown 60% year on year. Owner Inanch Emir has well-known clients including Cher Lloyd, Mischa Barton and Saturdays singer Rochelle Wiseman, and when I visit one weekday afternoon her small salon is buzzing. "I do about two or three hair extensions a day," she says. "I used to do that a month."
