Top 3 Tips on How to Successfully Sell My Used Wig Online
Do you have a wig that's collecting dust in your closet?
Who doesn't have a wig that they've purchased online only to figure out the color just wasn't quite right, or it fit a little big/small, or that in fact, you just prefer a different cap construction?
There are so many different factors that go into finding the right piece for you and (unfortunately) sometimes it just requires a little trial and error.
We know that there's a lot of room for improvement when it comes to the shopping experience for wigs and hair toppers. Heck, that's why we started Silk or Lace!
One way that we lower the risk is to provide our Resell platform for both
sellers who now have the option to sell their lightly worn wigs and hair toppers
buyers who now can purchase discounted hair pieces from trusted brands like Highline Wigs and Toppers, Hair Mama, Wigs by Tiffani, Lusta, Milano, and more!
That's called #winning!
With that said, there are a few things to keep in mind when you are submitting an application to sell your pre-loved hair pieces with us. Not only will following these tips help us approve your application, it will increase the chances of your piece being sold quickly on our platform.
Here are our top 3 tips on how to successfully sell your wigs and toppers!
1. Determine the condition of your hair piece.
Be honest in the application. Are there any alterations that you or your hair stylist have made to the piece (color, trims, thinning, etc.)? Are there any, even the slightest rips or tears in the cap?
These changes could impact the value of the piece and it's important you note them upfront so that we can determine the accurate selling price with you.
Alterations don't necessary mean a decrease in value. Sometimes, if there was a custom coloring done, it may actually make the piece more desirable!
In addition, if there is a minor tear or coloring defect, it may help the value of the piece if you fix them upfront. If there is a way to sew a loose clip or even take a spoolie and touch up overbleached knots, this may significantly help in selling the wig or hair topper!
2. Provide a reasonable price.
We all want the most bang (or return) for our buck. It's our goal to help you sell your piece at the highest price possible. However, it's also important to provide a reasonable price at the get-go to sell.
Most pieces that are listed on Resell: Silk or Lace successfully sell the same day that they are listed.
Once pieces are live on our platform for more than a week, it gets harder to sell. This means, it's essential to get the price right the first time around!
Our general guide to selling a hair piece is 10-15% off the retail price, depending on the condition. If the lace front is cut or if there are any defects, you may be looking at a lower value.
We'll most likely let you know if the price you're asking for is reasonable, but ultimately the price is up to you. If the human hair piece sits on our site for more than 90 days, we'll ask you to pay for the shipping to send the wig or hair topper back to you!
3. Provide some background info!
The more information you can give us on why this hair piece didn't work out for you, the more context we can give to the next potential wearer!
There are so many reasons why a human hair wig or hair topper doesn't work for you, but can be perfect for another person. Sharing the wealth of knowledge only helps another hair sister out!
Selling a hair piece not only puts more $$ back into your pocket, but it quite literally makes another woman's hair day. We hope we can provide you a positive experience when selling your lightly worn wig or hair topper today!
