In 2021, the global hair extension market was valued at $6.13billion. These figures are estimated to rise with an estimated 8% growth per year, which is why many venture capital investors now see the high growth potential in the hair extension industry and are keen to invest.
Conversely, this high rate of growth is causing the industry to become oversaturated with unknowledgeable hair extensionists and products that are of sub-par quality to maintain high standards of work. This is why in-depth knowledge, skilled techniques and high-quality hair are crucial to separate yourself from other hair extensionists and become successful in a rapidly growing industry.
