How Do I Choose the Best Hair Extensions Classes?

If you are a stylist or a salon owner, hair extensions classes can help you and your staff learn how to provide hair extensions to your customers. Your choice of classes can depend on a number of things, including the vendor you work with to provide your extensions, the availability of an instructor, or your own ability to travel to a class. Other factors include the reputation of an instructor as well as the cost of his class offerings.

In some areas, beauty schools may offer hair extensions classes either as a part of their curriculum or as a continuing education program. If you are a hairdresser and you live near the cosmetology school from which you graduated, you may wish to ask if the school is offering hair extension courses and whether you might be entitled to a discount as a former student. Even if you don't live close to your old beauty school, you may wish to ask some of the local schools if they offer training in hair extensions.

Other options for taking hair extensions classes include attending seminars that may be offered during trade shows or by other professionals. Classes can take anywhere from one to four days and may result in your obtaining professional certification in hair extensions. Be sure to ask the course provider about what it will cost you to take class as well as what is included in your course fee. In some cases, you may be provided with materials that you can use to begin your hair extensions practice right away.

If you are unable to find a beauty school in your area that offers hair extensions classes, you may wish to contact vendors of hair extensions supplies. In some cases, they will offer their own training program and may even send a trainer directly to your salon. By having an in-salon class, you can easily keep costs down, as salon employees will not need to travel to get their training. Ask the vendor about what it charges to send a trainer out to your salon; it may be that you can get a significant price break on the training if you make a large purchase of hair extensions supplies. If you choose this option, make sure that you have a chance to actually inspect the extensions and supplies on offer to make sure that they are of good enough quality to use in your salon.

I have heard in some cases of classes like these, as well as beauty schools in general, offering a low cost or even free service for the people who are willing to be guinea pigs in these classes. If you are interested in getting hair extensions or other beauty services cheaply, offering yourself as a model for these classes can be one option.
