Hair Replacement training for professionals
As well as providing high-quality hair replacement and hair extension services to clients, I also train hairdressers and extensionists in hair replacement systems and extensions. For women, In particular, the hair is a symbol of feminity and beauty, and it’s tied up with self-esteem, so when they lose their hair, it can be devastating and it really affects their confidence.
These ladies are going through a very tough time emotionally, and there’s a definite need for hair replacement services that are not only high-quality, but that offer them the empathy and privacy that they need.
What qualities do you need to be a hair replacement specialist?
The first thing I would say is that you need to have empathy for what these ladies are going through. Helping them get their confidence back should be your passion, it shouldn’t be about making money. Clients should never feel taken advantage of and you should treat everyone who walks through your doors with the same levels of respect and discretion. Remember that by the time they come to you, they’ve probably exhausted a lot of other options.
My hair replacement courses
I pride myself offering some of the most in-depth and informative hair replacement courses that you’ll find anywhere. I don’t offer courses that claim to teach you multiple methods in one day, as I don’t believe that anyone could feel confident on how to fit a hair system safely and correctly after that amount of time. I’ve had to retrain people who have gone on bogus 1-day courses where they have come away with nothing and didn’t feel confident enough to fit a hair system.
On one of my courses, you’ll be in a class of no more than 3 people so that everyone gets the best out of their learning. I spend as much time as you need on one method until you’re 100% confident in your skills, then you’ll get to work on real clients. You’ll get to spend a day with Stephanie Moore, a trichologist who teaches at the Institute of Trichology, and you can come back and shadow me whenever you like. Every course is a completely rewarding and immersive experience.
