I have noticed more and more lately that micro link and fusion extensions are becoming more popular in this area of Virginia Beach. Many stylists I know have paid a fortune to become certified in this technique of extensions, and I’m talking about hundreds of dollars (which is completely ridiculous). I also know of many salons (mostly upscale) that perform these extensions and charge an insane amount for their clients in the range of anywhere from $1500 to $3000. Like, for real????? Sometimes, more often than not, the extensions are not properly applied and it ended badly for the client. I have taken out some pretty jacked up extensions. I have been wanting to learn how to do this, so I did some research.
Technically, you don’t have to be certified to do these type of extensions but as a licensed hairstylist, I think in order to do this service, a stylist should be certified and have the certificate posted in the salon or at the station so that the client can have peace of mind and be reassured that the stylist is trained properly. This technique does not have to be limited to the wealthy and that it can be affordable to become certified and to have these services offered at a decent price for your clients.
There are many different companies that offer this certification from Cinderella, Pure Extensions, just to name a few. There are so many to choose from. I want to talk about Donna Bella Hair, because so far it is the best certification program that is affordable.
Donna Bella Hair offers online education and certification is not just one technique but 3: I-Link (MicroLink), Kera-link (fusion) and Tape-In. Each course is $99, but when you enroll in all 3 the price is only $229. This is a killer deal. The only thing is that tools are not included, but of course Donna Bella Hair has various kits to help get you started.
This kit is only $175 and you have everything you need to get started to include fusion heat tool, color swatch ring, and other fun goodies. Now that I am the manager of a salon, I want to help the staff at Layla Glam Squad get certified so that we can offer this to our clients. I didn’t want to keep this info to myself, so of course, what better way to let the world know than to blog about it?
I hope this was inspiring for any of the hair stylists out there reading this to inspire them to learn a new technique to help expand their skills and services.
Thanks for stopping by and see you in the next post!
