As an industry, we have adapted quickly to the changing times and embraced the use of new technology to continue with business safely. Leader of the hair extension market, Great Lengths have launched their brand new online platform for hair extension training, introducing…Great Lengths Virtual Education.
Transforming their traditional two-day certification course into bite size modules, allowing 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 Training 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 and written materials as revision materials. Each delegate will receive their own personal login 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. Louise Jenkins, Creative and Education Manager for Great Lengths UK & Ireland said:
It’s a huge step into the future and we can’t wait to get started with our waiting list of students. We have been working on the platform over the summer months and are thrilled to announce the launch of Great Lengths Virtual Education. We have all had to adapt quickly to the changing norm, and this way we can continue to carry out our training courses for pre-bonded and GL Tapes to many delegates in a safe and cautious manner, whilst keeping the integrity of the courses and keeping our quality and standards high.
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 Courses starting from: £306.00 + VAT
