Hair Extensions
This course teaches the use of hair extensions to primarily serve two purposes:

  • Use of hair extensions to add spunk and color: In this part, we cover adding extension highlights or lowlights or unusually colored extensions such as blue or pink. Some people prefer these over coloring, because unlike coloring, hair extensions are not permanent.
