We offer three different methods of attachments, depending on the type and condition of hair as well as the clients life style.

The fusion system which lasts 3-6 months, lasts the longest and looks the most natural, The bond is a protein polymer patent which mimics the human hair’s molecular structure. The bond is melted to the client’s own hair and rolled in a perfect barrel shape about 1 cm from the scalp.

The Micro ring system which lasts 2-3 months, can swim in chlorinated pools, use almost any aftercare products and can be re used.

The DIY easy clip-in extensions.

Course contents:

Our micro system and fusion system training is a two day or a full day, one2one class. Our course covers : an introduction to hair extensions, equipment list, client consultations, colour matching hair, ordering hair, application, cutting and styling, maintenance, removal, products and aftercare.This is not simply a dvd or hand book - although you will receive a full in-depth hand book as well!  Applying hair extensions is both an art and a science which requires a balance of theoretical knowledge and practical ability.  For this reason our courses all contain a practical aspect overseen by a professional hair eaxtensionist and hair stylist. 

You also receive the starter salon kit which contains everything you'll need to get you going. We make special arrangements if the dates or area doesn’t suite you.

The training really is a fantastic experience and will give you the knowledge and confidence to apply hair extensions straight away!

At the end of the course you will be presented with our certificate/diploma and be added to our website under accredited salons after completing three full sets of extensions which by then would have paid off your training as well as your kit.

Our trainers are hair extension professionals and are all actively applying hair extensions to customers on a daily basis.

Why choose us?:

Don't be fooled by some of the cheaper courses on offer. Most of them are using systems that are inferior and have given hair extensions a bad reputation. Our system has been in use for many years with regular clients coming back time after time. Numerous times customers have come to us asking us for advice about the condition of their hair and the damage that has been done by inferior systems and badly trained extensionists. We don't blame the extensionist... we blame the people who have trained them incorrectly. You can only be as good as you are taught and we have full confidence in our system because we are actively doing extensions in our own salon and have been doing for over a decade.

Become the best – be trained by the best.

The International Hair Extensions Academy offers training in both the micro ring and fusion systems (together or separately).

We also offer refresher courses to stylists who have certificates from other accredited training institutions.
