To choose the best wholesale headbands, first identify which types you would like to sell. A few available options include elastic headbands, decorative headbands or flexible plastic headbands. Create a list of manufacturers and wholesale companies that specialize in the types of wholesale hair accessories you intend to specialize in and carefully compare the cost of purchasing from each one. Choose the wholesale headbands that offer you the best profit margin and that are the most popular with the customer base you intend to target.

When choosing wholesale fashion, specializing in a certain type will help you determine which wholesale clothing purchases to make. This same idea applies to purchasing wholesale headbands. Several different types exist and it is best to decide what types you are interested in selling before you begin shopping for a wholesaler. For instance, you may choose to specialize in headbands that feature decorative items such as flowers or feathers affixed to a plastic or elastic headband. Perusing fashion magazines and paying attention to the types of headbands people are wearing will help you in identifying which ones are likely to sell the best.

After deciding on one or more particular types of headbands to offer your customers, search for vendors who specialize in those wholesale products. Sometimes manufacturers will sell directly to you or you may need to find a wholesale distributor. Attending trade shows and paying close attention to online auctions held by wholesalers may also help you find wholesale vendors offering the types of headbands you prefer. Researching the reputations of each vendor you consider may help you determine which one is the best to purchase wholesale headbands from.

Whichever vendor you decide to purchase from, be sure to carefully compare the total price you will pay for wholesale headbands against your budget and against what other wholesalers are offering. In addition to the price of the headbands, you should also factor shipping charges and any other applicable fees to the total price. Most wholesalers prefer you to buy bulk quantities and prices are often lower when you agree to do so. Prior to purchasing, however, it is a good idea to discuss specific terms with a vendor, such as return policies on damaged merchandise. After the terms of your purchase have been decided upon, select wholesale headbands for purchase according to which ones offer you the best profit margin.
