Hair Extensions have become a principal styling demand over the past few years. While in the past, extensions were predominantly left to salon-professionals – an increasing number of celebrities now travel with a selection of hair-pieces that give them endless opportunities to play and ‘switch-up’ their styles. Styling techniques for extensions have therefore become very sophisticated.

Yes! Everyone has embraced the fun & creative freedom to be had with extensions – so it is absolutely vital for stylists to have the necessary skills to create styles that may convey a ‘beyond-natural’ aesthetic, that allow artists to use their hairstyle as a powerful element to their self-expression, image and sense of style. The days when artists, celebrities and brands stick to one signature-look to define their image are well and truly over!

This course module aims to build and nurture your creative versatility by teaching you important core-skills needed to create styles that range from subtle enhancement of natural hair – to creating fashion-forward, artistic pieces that push boundaries and create a distinct aesthetic.
