Get certified in Zen Hair Extensions

At Zen Hair, we believe that our extensions reach their biggest potential when our hair professionals gain expert knowledge about our product history, application, maintenance, and removal. That is why we offer certifications for professionals who have attended one of our training days. Led by our UK educator, Simon Stainton,  attendees experience a full day of an entertaining mix of demonstrations and practical application across all of Zen’s product ranges.

The day starts with an orientation, classroom style brand presentation followed by a demonstration by Simon on either mannequin heads or a live model. Students are then invited to apply some extensions on the model and on each other under the watchful guidance of Simon. This is an exclusive opportunity to pick up techniques and learn innovative ways to pave the way in our lucrative industry.

Simon Stainton has been working in the hairdressing industry for over 40 years! In that time, he owned and ran salons and salon groups for 25 years! Simon has been in the hair extension business for two decades, working with different manufacturers, and fitting extensions both in a commercial and creative sense in session work.

Simon has worked exclusively with Zen Hair since 2016 and is the head of our training programs. Simon still works as a session hairdresser at shows and photo shoots for Zen Hair.  Simon runs the Zen Hair UK Education Program and supports our distributors in the South of England visiting academies and salons.

We are continually striving to offer support and guidance to salons after training and visit many salons more than once to refresh and update new staff members and launch new products.

What’s in it for you?

A training day enables you to learn the ins and outs of Zen Hair products and lines. Our UK educator is there to answer any questions you may have and to offer expertise in a classroom setting with live demos. We offer you professional advice about how you can maximise the life of the extensions with detailed explanations of care and maintenance. You are also guided on how to conduct client consultations to ensure your client is aware of the commitment they are about to make and what it entails, ultimately providing the best possible service they can get. Attendees have the chance to get their hands on the product and learn the most efficient way of applying and removing the hair.  Every training day includes a Zen Hair Trade Account and Tool Kit. Most importantly, trainees will obtain a “Zen Luxury Hair Extensions Certificate” to showcase to their clients that they have completed the Zen Hair extensions course.
