Go online and you’ll find hundreds, if not thousands of hair extension courses. 

But how many actually prepare you for working with real-life clients?

How many of them will help you develop your skills and confidence?

What about giving you advice on setting up on your own and earning money doing something you love?

At Hot Locks Training Academy, you’ll find hair extension training that goes above and beyond what is taught on other courses. 

What makes us different?

My hair extension training courses are fully accredited and suitable for complete beginners, and not only that, they are taught 1-2-1 or in very small groups, so you can learn at a pace that suits you. 

Get real salon experience 

I know that doing a training course doesn’t necessarily make you skilled and confident enough to work with clients, so everyone who trains with me is invited back for a Professional Development Day in the salon where they can:

  • Get salon experience working on a model

  • Carry out a client consultation

  • Order hair 

  • Arrange a fitting 

  • Carry out a fitting and put their skills into practice 

  • Get professional pictures for their portfolio

  • Get feedback on their work

How many courses offer you this?

How many training providers then send you straight out of the door to work with clients when you might not feel completely prepared?

Not us

If you feel confident in your skills and ready to work on clients after your training, that’s great. If not, I’ll work with you and offer further training, free of charge until you do. 

What will you learn?

On my hair extension courses you’ll learn:

  • Health and Safety guidelines, and guidance on other legislation you need to know about when you’re working with clients

  • Hair types, Hair Origins, and the Hair Growth Cycle

  • The Science of Hair 

  • Carrying out a Client Consultation 

  • Contraindications to fitting extensions 

  • Preparing the Client’s Hair

  • Hair Extension Methods

  • Hair Sectioning and Hair Extension Placements 

  • Cutting and Styling

  • Aftercare Products

  • Aftercare and Maintenance

  • Refits

  • Good, Bad, and Ugly Fittings

  • Trouble-Shooting 

  • Business Advice

What else is included?

A full hair extension kit for the fitting method you have chosen is supplied as part of the course. You can opt to get a life-size mannequin head with thicker hair than the one supplied in the kit, at extra cost. 

You will need to bring hairdressing scissors with you and any electrical styling tools you’ll need (hairdryers, curling wands etc.)

Will I get support after my training?

Yes! I don’t believe in ‘hi and bye’ training courses, I want every student who comes through my doors to leave feeling confident in their skills and ready to start making clients look and feel amazing.

Once you’ve completed your course you can:

  • Join my private Facebook group which is exclusive for students who’ve trained at the Hot Locks Training Academy.

  • Have telephone, email, or text message support from me whenever you need it. 

Sounds great, how do I sign up?
