Great Lengths Virtual Education is here

Aurore Caboche Great Lengths

We are so proud that as an industry, we have adapted quickly to the changing times and embraced the use of new technology to continue with business safely. Hair Education has been adapted and reformed in a great way as well; as the leader of the hair extension market, Great Lengths wouldn’t have stayed behind. The brand has launched their new online platform for hair extension training, introducing… Great Lengths Virtual Education.

Training, reimagined

Transforming their traditional two-day certification course into bite size modules, allowing greater flexibility for students to work in their own safe space. Each aspiring hair extension student will work one on one with a dedicated Great Lengths educator throughout their training, working through each module together for an even more comprehensive education experience, with scheduled time to discuss theory elements and receive practical demonstrations, tutorials and hands-on experience via video call.

Great Lengths Virtual Training allows aspiring hair extension artists to have full access to a virtual hub that includes technical application videos for pre-bonded and GL Tapes application, colour matching as well as manuals and written materials as revision materials. Each delegate will receive their own personal log in which will be bespoke to them, allowing them to see how far they have progressed with the course to keep on track and view their educator’s diary to book in sessions.

Training no longer needs to be days booked out of the salon, students can manage their own diaries and time and work at their own pace. It truly is the next innovation in hair extension education.

Louise Jenkins, Creative and Education Manager for Great Lengths UK & Ireland said, “It’s a huge step into the future and we can’t wait to get started with our waiting list of students. We have been working on the platform over the summer months and are thrilled to announce the launch of Great Lengths Virtual Education.We have all had to adapt quickly to the changing norm, and this way we can continue to carry out our training courses for pre-bonded and GL Tapes to many delegates in a safe and cautious manner, whilst keeping the integrity of the courses and keeping our quality and standards high”.
