Private Label Extensions
Mikey started Private Label Extensions in 2013. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Private Label Extensions?
At lunch, one day my business partner was telling me about his girlfriend who was spending almost $700 at the hair salon to get extensions. I instantly thought there could be a huge opportunity here because someone is making a lot of money off hair clients. After digging a little deeper, I found out the insane amount woman was paying for hair extensions.
As a product guy, I quickly learned everything I could about hair extensions. Where the best places to source and manufacture. I have worked hard to bring the best quality products for the lowest cost to the USA market. My previous experience selling online gave me a good background in E-Commerce which helped a lot.
Now I spend about a month a year working with manufacturers in China to ensure we are on top of production and standards. Building relationships has been a huge part of our growth and success.
When I first got into the industry I was broke, recovering from a previous business failure. We invested only $28,000 in total to get started. I borrowed my half from my mom and have since paid her back. As of recent, we have sold over $20,000,000 in the last three years. Things are better now.
