The Most Important Guidelines

  • Never send your hair off before receiving payment
  • For maximum value and safety avoid cutting your hair before receving payment.
  • We strongly recommend using PayPal to receive the money for your hair sale. Ignore anyone offering cashier cheques, Western Union, MoneyGram or alternative payment methods and report them to HairSellon

Be as truthful and accurate as possible in your descriptions and include as much detail as possible. You will find ‘Helpful Hint’ boxes on the hair selling form to help you along your way.

3. Wait for Contact from Buyers
Once your hair is listed, buyers will be able to contact you through the HairSellon contact system, and you will be able to finalise a deal. Messages will go directly to the email inbox you signed up with.

You can reply to buyer messages directly from your email (make sure you are not replying to noreply@hairsellon). This means even if your advert expires on HairSellon you can carry on negotiations with buyers.
Please report any inappropiate messaging to Hairsellon

4. Sales, Payment, Cuting & Shipping
Once an agreement has been reached with a buyer we strongly recommend you use Paypal to handle transactions, this makes it much easier to handle any potential disputes. You can send an invoice directly to the buyers email address by using your PayPal account.
We advise holding on to a small portion of your hair in the unlikely case of any issues/disagreement with buyers down the line.

Before cutting make sure your hair is brushed and aligned properly.
-Secure the hair with elastic hair bands and cut the hair in ponytail form if possible.
-Avoid disturbing the hair once cut, and package into an sealed bag/padded mailer to avoid any external dust or contaminants getting in.
-Send using a postal tracking number service so you have proof of postage and the buyer can track the delivery.

NEVER send your hair off to the buyer until the money is confirmed in your paypal account.
We also advise not to cut your hair off until you’ve received payment.

5. Managing Your Advert
Once you’ve registered at HairSellon, you can manage your Ad(s) from your Dashboard. Here you can see your account information, views counter and the status of your ads. You can also edit your adverts and upgrade your listing(s).

Please remember to mark your ad as sold in your dashboard once the sale is completed. Access Your Dashboard »


How Much is My Hair Worth?

The price of hair varies hugely and is dependent on the market at the time. It is graded by quality and length/weight. In terms of quality, highly cared for hair that hasn’t been dyed, or been subjected to ironing/curling or other treatments is worth much more.

Imperfections such as split ends would have to be cut off and the value will drop respectively, this is why accurate descriptions are so vital. One of the key factors in hair pricing is whether or not it can be classified as virgin hair, find out What is Virgin Hair?

We’ve recently launched a new tool called the Hair Price Calculator. This unique tool is designed to give you a personal quote for the value of your hair, taking the effort and confusement out of pricing.
Try out the Hair Calculator below. Remember; due to the individual nature of people’s hair, prices can only be estimates and often represent the maximum amount you could sell your hair for.
