We’ve all had to adapt to the changing times and learn how to embrace the use of new technology and luxury hair extension market leader Great Lengths is no exception.

In response to COVID-19, Great Lengths has introduced its brand new online platform for hair extension training called Great Lengths Virtual Education.

What is Great Lengths Virtual Education?

Transforming their traditional two-day certification course into bite size modules, it allows greater flexibility for students to work in their own safe space. Each aspiring hair extension student will work one-on-one with a dedicated Great Lengths educator throughout their training, working through each module together for an even more comprehensive education experience, with scheduled time to discuss theory elements and receive practical demonstrations, tutorials and hands-on experience via video call.

Great Lengths Virtual Education allows aspiring hair extension artists to have full access to a virtual hub which includes technical application videos for pre-bonded and GL Tapes application, colour matching as well as manuals to use as revision materials. Each delegate will receive their own personal log in which will be bespoke to them, allowing them to see how far they have progressed with the course to keep on track and view their educator’s diary to book in sessions.

Training no longer needs to be days booked out of the salon, students can manage their own diaries and time and work at their own pace. It truly is the next innovation in hair extension education.

What else does the course include?

To complete the certification course, each Great Lengths student will receive:

  • A theory pack which includes a manual covering everything from consultation, application, cutting and blending, pricing and business start-up information.
  • A Practical pack which includes a head block, training hair, application accessories, salon and training equipment.
  • Business Kickstart Pack – with the latest POS items to help promote Great Lengths.

Any questions?

Louise Jenkins, creative and education manager for Great Lengths answers some of the most-frequently asked questions …

Why you should you sign up for GL Education?
Great Lengths Virtual Education offers the student a personalised one on one course which is safeguarded against COVID-19 and is completely flexible for the student, allowing the course to be completed in the students own time.  This means no time booked out of the salon or travel expenses.

How does the online education vary from the usual foundation course?
We’ve had to adapt quickly to the changing norm and continue to provide training to salons across the UK and Ireland without compromising the quality of our courses.  The courses are now broken down into bite-sized modules which the student will work together with their educator instead of our usual 2-day Foundation course based in a classroom. All students will have the same dedicated time to them and have the opportunity to ask questions without a pressured classroom setting which can be intimidating to some stylists. We’re fully embracing new technologies and adapting to these new ways or working.

What can you expect to take-away from the training?
Apart from becoming a confident certified Great Lengths hair extensionist, students will leave with a vast knowledge of the Great Lengths brand and our key messages. Many of our students have told us that the training has opened up their eyes to the benefits of using Great Lengths as a brand and clients love to hear about it. The theory training goes through the journey of Great Lengths hair, proving its ethicality, traceability and sustainability which today is more important than ever to clients.

How can the training potentially help your business?
Offering hair extensions as a service can open the salon up to a whole new demographic of clients for the salon which will create additional revenue.  Being able to provide the solution to clients’ hair concerns and transform a client’s hair whether it’s just for adding thickness or dramatic length can set you apart from the competition, it is an art and with the correct training and support, as many of our stylists can testify to, you can grow an incredible extension business.

Great Lengths Courses start from £365+VAT for GL Tape Only and ​£2,190 for Pre-Bonded Training.
