10-minute hair-up techniques

Kirby Blythe Great Lengths education courses hair up

If you’re looking to boost your skills as an extensionst and stylist, Great Lengths has a new educational opportunity you may love. The brand announces a new course teaching four 10-minute hair-up techniques using GL Tape hair extensions. The new looks could be useful in the salon for clients wanting fuller, longer styles. 

Kirby Blythe, Great Lengths Gold salon owner and Great Lengths master, created the 10-minute techniques to share her knowledge with professionals looking to develop their skills. The one-day course will show the versatility of GL Tapes, allowing stylists to create bridal and festival hair in just 10 minutes. We love the sound of this. From braids, waves and updos, Great Lengths promises this course will help you boost your skillset…and your business.

About 10-minute hair-up techniques

Great Lengths has split the course into two sessions. In the morning, students will listen, watch and learn as Kirby goes through each look step-by-step. Students attending the afternoon class will also learn the basics of each look on a live model with guidance from Kirby. 

Here’s a great way to boost salon business; students will learn to incorporate each look into a service menu option for clients. Great Lengths will also share placement patterns for each of the four looks and a digital advert to share on social channels.

‘10-Minute Techniques is all about mastering flawless updos and occasion hair, using GL Tape hair extensions’ says Kirby. ‘The course really showcases how easy it is to give clients a different and exciting service at the end of their appointment, not the same look over and over again thanks to the transformative effect of GL Tapes. I can’t wait to share and teach all my tips and tricks and to help stylists perfect their skills and boost revenue’.
