Hair extensions are a billion-dollar industry, and you may be wondering how you can take part.
Although many clients might assume that hair extensions training is part of the curriculum for cosmetology school, they’d be surprised to discover it’s not. You can become an hair extensions expert with taking Universal Top Beauty hair extensions course.
As a licensed cosmetologist, if you’re interested in applying hair extensions for your clients, it’s your responsibility to get the necessary training you need before you can provide this type of service.
At Universal Top Beauty, we offer in-salon hair extensions training of various types of methods; fusion, tape-in, nano, and beaded weft to help you become a hair extension expert in your salon.
Fusion hair extensions are single-strand extensions that are applied to the hair using keratin U-tip bonds with either heat or glue.
Tape-in extensions have a polyurethane base that attaches to the natural hair without any special tools or heat.
Nano hair extensions are individual hair extension strands that are applied with a nano ring.
Beaded weft extensions are wefts of hair that are applied with micro-beads
Now that you’re familiar with the different methods, here’s what you can expect to learn from our hair extensions training:
Hair extensions training part 1: Consultation
When it comes to hair extensions there isn’t a one-size-fits all method. In addition a client must consider before choosing a hair extension method, such as budget and lifestyle. With our hair extensions training, you’ll learn the ins and outs of how to conduct the perfect client consultation to understand their wants and meet their expectations.
Hair Extensions Training part 2: Application
There are plenty of YouTube videos that you could watch to learn how to apply hair extensions, but this will only set you up for failure. With our hands-on hair extensions training, you will not only learn about the application process but how to address any issues that may arise. For example, your client may be experiencing hair loss, so it’s up to you as the professional to advise the client if hair extensions are an option for them
Hair Extensions Training 3: Customization
The beauty of hair extensions is that they’re customizable to help your client achieve their desired look. For example, you can use different lengths to give your client’s hair a layered look or blend two different colors to create an ombre. Most of your clients will need some sort of customization for their service, so having this skill in your back pocket is key.
Hair Extensions Training part 4: Care and Maintenance
Each hair extension brand has their own special care and maintenance requirements. With tape-in extensions, you can’t use any oil-based products near the root or you may be at risk for slipping. As a result having extensive knowledge of the specific care and maintenance tips to educate your clients after their service is necessary for protecting your client’s investment.
Whether you want to specialize in one hair extension method or become an expert in all four, our hair extensions training can help you achieve your goals. Interested in learning more? Contact us today!
