RiRi hair extension training courses are fully accredited courses and insurable, meaning you'll receive the highest level of training at our Essex hair extensions salon.

Our courses are only led by professional hair extension stylists who have years of experience in the industry and are passionate about providing you with the best hair extension training possible. They'll guide you through your practical training, giving you support and advice every step of the way.

We also offer a range of courses, including hair extension application and styling, so you can choose the course that's right for you – or book yourself in for more than one for even more comprehensive training.


We have designed our hair extension courses to be kept to a maximum of 5 students per class which allows for intimate and intense training. Depending on the course you have chosen, the trainer will guide you through a carefully planned and thorough training session, teaching you the skills needed to be a successful hair extension technician.

After you have completed your course, you will receive ongoing support from our trainer to ensure your career is a success.


On completion of the course, you will receive an accredited qualification, full kit, online and social media promotion, training manual, as well a trade discount on RiRi's hair extensions.

We want you to be the best you can be, so we make sure you get the highest quality training and support.

All courses are led by a qualified and experienced extensions professional.

  • Flat Track Weave, Tape, Nano & Micro Hair Extensions Course – around 6 to 7 hours
  • Nano & Micro Hair Extensions Course – around 4 hours
  • Flat Track Weave & Tape Extensions Course – 3 hours
  • Bouncy Blow Hair Course – 3 hours

This price of our hair extensions training courses depends on the course you're taking. Our longer, more complex courses (like the Flat Track Weave, Tape, Nano & Micro Hair Extensions Course) costs £500, and the more basic training (Bouncy Blow Hair Course) costs £180. We're always running discounts on our courses, so keep your eyes peeled!

We do not offer online training for our Hair Extensions Academy. We believe you need practical, hands-on training to fully get to grips with the skills needed to become a successful hair extension technician. We do have some great hair extension video tutorials you can watch if you need any support installing your extensions at home.

Technically, you don't need a qualification to do hair extensions - but having a qualification will set you apart and make you more desirable to potential clients. Our hair extension courses are fully accredited, insurable and recognised by the industry, so it's worth investing in the training if you want to become a professional hair extension technician.
