I came from South Africa and did the 1 week hair extensions course. I now have my own successful business applying and selling Hair extensions. The best part about the course was learning so many different methods all on live models. I also enjoyed learning about all of the different types of hair and the marketing section of the course. I would highly recommend this course.

“I did this course so I could do my three daughters extensions, and already I’ve saved enough to on holiday!  Lovely girls and a very friendly environment – thanks for a great experience.”

Shelia, 48, 4 Methods Hair Extensions Course

“I originally phoned up to do hair colouring, but after telling the very helpful girl on the booking line about my situation decided to do hair extensions instead.  I’m now up and running in hair extensions and the money I’m earning from that I’m using to pay for my colouring course, and then saving for my own salon.  Thanks LHI for giving me direction and business advice I never would have thought of.”
