By 2026, consumers in North America are expected to contribute approximately $2 billion to the global hair wigs and extension market.
According to a March 2021 report, “Consumers of African descent constitute one of the largest end-user of wigs. Consumers are trying to limit the use of harsh chemical products such as peroxide serums. Moreover, an increasing number of women are preferring natural afro-textured hair. Although most consumers are not ready to embrace natural hair, they are increasingly buying hair wigs of human hair as they feel natural.”
Although this information may not come as a surprise, what may surprise you is the number of Black owned wig and hair extension businesses that have been established over the last few years to satisfy this demand.
