Perhaps you are unaware that wigs and hair extensions are not only a fashion accessory that enhances human beauty but also a business. Along with the rise in demand for wigs and hair extensions, Vietnam’s hair industry has begun to flourish and is gradually asserting its position in the international market. And also following that development, many questions were raised about the origin and development process, as well as the hidden corners behind this industry in Vietnam. As one of the top manufacturers of hair extensions in Vietnam, AZ Hair will walk you through some of the significant milestones in the development of the Vietnamese hair business.
I. History of Hair Industry in Vietnam
Wigs first emerged in ancient Egypt about 2000 years ago. However, wigs were not widely recognized until the 16th century, thanks to the first Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, who had a significant influence on the fashion world. However, wigs were still considered a luxury item at the time, and only the nobles could wear them. Wigs were still regarded as expensive until the 19th century when music stars began to use them, and from there, the trend of using wigs grew rapidly. The hair business in Vietnam – at that time still in the French colonial period – was also born. The beauty needs of the wives of French officials have partly spread to Vietnamese women. There is demand, so there is supply, and that is when the Vietnamese hair industry officially started the development stage with the introduction of a variety of hair care services and products, as well as hairdressing tools.
It wasn’t until the end of the 20th century, when international cultures began to interfere, that Vietnam’s hair business entered its most profitable period of expansion, with the introduction of wigs and hair extensions. Although just entering the development period, Vietnamese wigs have been gradually asserting their importance in the international arena to compete with other major wig exporting countries such as China, India, and Peru.

- Virgin Hair is obtained by purchasing directly from women, who are mostly from high mountainous places and ethnic minorities. Because of the healthy lifestyles of the locals, the hair is always of high quality and is the best version of virgin hair. Vietnamese virgin hair is hair that has never been styled, colored, or bleached. It signifies that the hair is silky, smooth, and supple, that the cuticles are well maintained, and that the restyling capability is exceptional.
