Education and training are the cornerstone of the British hairdressing industry and when it comes to a technical product like hair extensions, and the many application methods available, hairdressers need to be fully educated in order to achieve the best results for their clients.

Here at Zen Luxury Extensions, we have been training and educating hairdressers on Zen extensions since our UK launch. We offer full in-house or in-salon training courses over 1 or 2 days. Our training is headed up by Zen UK Lead Trainer Simon Stainton.

Simon says, “Our 1 day courses are for up to 4 students at a time to learn 2 application methods from our Tape, Micro Rings, Nano I-Tips and Pre-Bonded systems. Alternatively they can have a full 1 day course on our Weft extensions.” Simon added, “Our 2 day courses allow up to 4 students to learn all 5 application methods.”


Additionally we also run regional education days where we can train up to 8 students per time. This year, these are currently planned for London, Birmingham and Manchester.

BRIDAL COURSE – New for 22

The demand for extensions in conjunction with bridal hair is growing rapidly, as brides seek to transform their own hair for the big day. We sought the training services of bridal and braiding hairstylist Laura McPhee of VersaStyle. Simon said, “Laura has been using Zen hair extensions for a number of years with her own bridal clients, so knows our brand really well.” He added, “When creating this new bridal course to add to our education and training portfolio, Laura was the obvious choice and perfect fit.”


Successful students who undertake and pass any of the Zen training course receive a Zen Certificate displaying all the application methods, and will collect an embossed sticker to attach to the certificate for each application method they pass.

This certificate can be displayed in the salon so that clients are reassured that the technician applying their extensions has the most up-to-date training currently available. Prices 1 Day training courses start from £495 and include up to 4 students. Additional students can be added at £50 per student.*
