Your Practice Day is Invaluable

Hair extension course
This also allows your model to be become your first client. We find students feel more comfortable working on someone you know, maybe a friend or sister. You source your own model.

Hair extension is a highly practical subject which is the reason our Diploma course allows you to learn what you need to know on the first day and then fit extensions on the final day, under your Tutor's supervision.

The models pay for their own hair and order it directly from the suppliers, hair will range from €70 to €150, depending on lenght and how much hair is required. The tutor will do a colour match and consultation with models on the first day of the course so models know how to purchase the hair and microbeads and where to purchase it from.
