2. Issues that many hair resellers face every Christmas & the importance of defining Christmas hairstyles
Knowing that Christmas is the sale season of hair extensions and Christmas hair do or Christmas hairstyles, many hair sellers may think that just sit still and the sale will naturally come. In fact, no sale will come if you don’t have any preparation. The truth is many resellers turned Christmas into their worst sale period due to such typical mistakes. In order to help you avoid such similar regrettable faults, we will analyze all of them below. You can be assured that all the knowledge is accumulated from our practical experiences of being a prestigious hair factory in the hair business for decades.
2.1. Issue 1: Lack of preparation
- Analyzing the issue
The lack of preparation seems to be the most common mistake of hair resellers when referring to a reason for their poor sale during Christmas. They just import and resell hair like a normal schedule with a simple thought that they just need to import more hair, especially Christmas hairstyles to serve more customers. They simply have no precalculation of possible issues such as the added production time or the delay of shipping due to overloaded demands.
In concrete, they do not calculate the ordering time in advance, so when they make a wholesale order with the factory, the hair finally cannot be delivered on time. Just some days of added producing time coupled with 2-3 weeks of shipping delay can totally ruin the Christmas sale! When the hair comes, the festival already ended, and the customers already chose other sellers. What is left to do is just thinking about how to sell up that huge number of hair extensions!
- What is the solution?
So, what can be the solution to issue number 1? Remember that the solution of an issue always originates from the reason. The only way is to prepare for yourself a careful plan before ordering hair for Christmas. You should write down the plan with all the possible risks like delay or factories selling out hair or so on. Then, an important step is to list all the possible solutions to make sure you work well with the factory. For more specific suggestions, you can read the third item.
2.2. Issue 2: Wrong choice of distributor factory
- Analyzing the issue
As many hair resellers suddenly realize that they really need a big number of hair extensions with Christmas hairstyles for the Christmas sale, they start to be worried and rush to find a wholesale hair factory. They are, of course, usually attracted by factories which can offer a variety of hair at quite a low price together with a guarantee of producing time. Then, they hurry to make an order in bulk, to make sure they get the hair as soon as possible. However, that rush prevents them from doing one important task – it is checking the factory! The result is, many unreliable factories just break the commitment. They may deliver unqualified hair, delay the delivery, or even refuse to ship the hair and disappear! This not only makes resellers miss a big sale occasion but also causes a big loss of money.
- What is the solution?
What all resellers need to do is to check the factory carefully before making an order. So, how to check, or how to initially realize whether a factory is unreliable? You can follow these simple ways:
- Make a quick check through video call
- Make a sample order if it is still possible
- Check authenticity of the information provided on website
The earlier you find the factory, the more time you have to check it. Therefore, don’t forget to start your plan at a suitable time. For more specific signals of a fraud factory, you can check out this post: How to identify a fraud factory
2.3. Issue 3: Wrong Determination for best selling hairstyles for xmas, leading to slow sale
- Analyzing the issue
At Christmas, the choice of what to sell is also of importance. While during normal daily sales, you can import a variety of hair types and persuade your customers to try, for Christmas, your customers will tend to only choose the most trendy hairstyles, especially Christmas hairstyles. If you fail to identify at least one popular style, you will not be able to sell any at all.
- What is the solution?
Researching the market by yourselves to find out the hot trend collections is one way. However, it is quite hard and time-consuming. What is highly recommended is that you find for yourself an experienced hair dealer to give you the answer. To do so, you need to work with a prestigious factory first, then the factory boss will be able to mentor you on what to choose for your Christmas sale.
One suggestion is the factory boss Cherry of K-Hair Factory – top 1 wholesale hair factory in Vietnam. To check the reliability of K-Hair, you can check out its official website here: K-Hair Factory

3. A detailed plan to get ready for Christmas sale season – disclosing Christmas hairstyles
After all, the most concern is to find out a practical plan for all the issues above, right! Please keep reading and you will know when and how to make a proper order as well as what to order for the upcoming Christmas!
3.1. Plan a timeline for hair order
You should remember that, usually, no one will wait until Christmas to beautify themselves with Christmas hairstyles. In fact, they tend to have everything well done about 2-3 weeks beforehand. This means you as a hair seller have to get your goods ready for Xmas sale before or right at this time. Don’t hope that anyone will come to you for hair on Christmas Eve!
So, to have the hair ready 2-4 weeks before Christmas, when is the perfect time to order the Christmas hairstyles in bulk? You need to consider the timeline very carefully. Normally, the suitable time to make an order is in October or at the beginning of November. The reasons lie in these 2 factors:
- The normal time needed for a factory to produce a hair in bulk order is 20 days
- The shipping time to US UK is about 3-5 days and to African countries (especially Nigeria) is 7-10 days. When there is a delay, the number can rise to 12 days or even more
Let’s do a calculation. If you order the hair in mid-October, assume it is October 15, then the hair will be done on November 5 or later. To ship the hair to US UK, it takes 5 more days, so resellers will get the hair in mid-November. To deliver to Nigeria, the coming day is later, at the end of November. This is the best time to receive the hair, as you do not get the hair too early or too late, and also have enough time to classify and advertise your hair as well as to reorganize the store.
What if you wait until December to make an order? Then, if luckily, you’ll receive the hair on New Year Eve – when people all get their hair done!!! Therefore, remember that having a sensible timeline is very important, don’t wait until Christmas for Xmas sale when every effort is just too late and useless!
