Toupee and HairPiece Wholesale Business in South Africa

As the hair piece market in South Africa has become much more active, the same is true with the wholesale hair piece market. Most of the hair piece wholesalers are located in South Africa’s economically developed cities, such as Gauteng, Durban, and Johannesburg, and they work with toupee and hair piece manufacturers from China and India. Most South African hair piece wholesalers choose to purchase hair systems from China. In this issue, the focus will be why they buy from China and what kind of hair pieces do they prefer?

Due to the geographical environment and physiological characteristics, the hair of South African people grows very slowly. As it grows longer, it  will curl and becomes very fragile. Usually real hair is only one or two centimeters long and very frizzy. When their hair grows to a certain length, it will automatically fall off and grows back. It does not stay long. In South Africa, due to the characteristics of their hair, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish women from men without wearing hair products. As a result, South Africans love toupee and other hair pieces. Notably, having wonderful hair is benefit for their daily life and career.


In this specific market, natural hair systems having a modern stylish appearance and made of synthetic and real hair are in demand. These new and exciting hairstyles need to be taken care of by professional styling salons. Hair pieces in South Africa can be called “just need,” as long as the men, women and children in South Africa have good economic conditions, they began to wear hair products from their youth. Additionally, those desiring a professional appearance, especially office workers, has at least three to four toupees.

The market in South Africa can be divided into two sections. One is medium grade, the other is high grade. Depending on economic level, purchasers buy the quality toupee they can afford.

The reasons why the people of South Africa love hair systems is clear, but let’s return to wholesale toupee market. South Africa has 9 provinces and Gauteng is important financial center. It is tropical savanna climate so it has long period wet season, and another is hot. Most of wholesales prefer to purchase toupee and wigs with a lace base. New Times Hair has developed the HS7 model hair piece to fit this need. It is made of full lace and has hand-sewn stitching for better shape contour and extra durability. The bleached knots are undetectable and natural. Most importantly, it is breathable so it is comfortable to be worn in the long wet and hot seasons. It can usually be worn about 3-5 months, depending on individual activity. The HS7 comes with 8”x10” base size and 5”-6” hair length with slight wave. Moreover, we offer both med-light density and medium density.

The HS7 is strongly recommended for your customers living in a very wet and hot climates.


Similarly, the HS25-V is also a natural-looking base design and is always in stock. The HS25-V has a 0.03mm ultra-thin skin base. Due to the thinness of the skin, it is very soft and undetectable. Many customers living in the far south of South Africa like this stock model. But the HS25-V also has some distinct disadvantages. Because it is ultra-thin, it is very fine and delicate and, as such, the HS25-V 0.03mm’ does not have the same durability and will last a shorter time period than thicker skin and Lace hair pieces and based on use. Its lifetime can be as short as only one month. If the customer is careful and takes good of it, it can last a little longer. Thus, if your target customer is from the south of South Africa and they care more about the most natural appearance more than durability, the HS25-V 0.03mm ultra-thin skin may be a great option.
