Hair Classification

Hair Classification 

Some hair types may not be suitable for an extension service; this is dependent on not only the client’s classification type but also whether the hair is weak or has a tendency to be oily.

  • Type 1 – straight hair has a tendency to be oily, due to the sebaceous gland being able to secrete along the length of the follicle. Analyse the hair and scalp, and question the client. Straight hair in good condition can achieve any extension service, as long as you match the correct texture.
  • Type 2 – wavy hair can achieve various types of hair extensions with a variety of styles. Check the hair for areas that can be frizzy as these will need the extension hair matching to the natural curl type.
  • Type 3 – curly hair can be weak due to the lack of natural oils travelling along the follicle from the sebaceous gland. Carry out the necessary tests to analyse this. If you are satisfied with the results, you can proceed but be aware, this classification type can have a combination of textures, so match the extensions to the texture.
  • Type 4 – very curly hair can be fragile and tangle easily. Carry out tests and if you are satisfied with the results you can proceed with the extension service. Take extra care when detangling and sectioning to avoid structural damage of the natural hair

Did the zoom course for Nano brows and my instructor was amazing. A very in depth course. Was certified right away after doing my model. So happy with this school. Also Did the online course for Brow lamination and lash lift online and those courses were also thorough and in depth. Will be taking more courses soon :))

Such an amazing experience. Very quick and thorough course. Very laid back and stress-free zone! They are very flexible and understanding. My model was my dad and he fell really ill the day he came over for his brows. They called me right away and reassured me they'd reschedule and work with me to become certified asap! So thankful. Definitely feel prepared and have resources to look back on!
