For Everything Related to The Academy


In the Academy, each phase encompasses lessons in both NBR and BMS. We highly recommend following the order of the lessons, as it ensures a comprehensive learning experience. However, in some cases, a specific order is mandatory.

The structure of each phase may vary between Linear and Free Form:

  • Linear: This structure requires you to progress through the course in the designated step sequence. Each lesson builds upon the previous one, allowing for a logical and structured progression of your skills and knowledge.
  • Free Flow: With this structure, you have the freedom to move through the course at your own pace, without adhering to a strict step sequence. This flexibility allows you to explore topics and areas of interest according to your preferences and needs.

Below, you will find detailed information on what to expect and how to progress through each phase, ensuring a smooth and effective learning journey!



  • At the beginning of your Academy journey, you will be introduced to the tools and basic principles of NBR and the core business lessons inside BMS.


    In the NBR video lessons, you will be taken through an entire NBR installation process from start to finish, and a quiz will follow each lesson to ensure that you have acquired a solid understanding of the content.


    To further reinforce your learning, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge in practical assessments. By submitting your NBR work, whether it's on a doll head or a human, you will receive personalized feedback on areas that can be improved. Depending on your comfort level and experience, you can choose what’s appropriate for your submissions.

  • The introduction to BMS will cover vital aspects of establishing yourself as a successful stylist in the niche hair extensions market. Although you will complete all the steps, you can move freely between the BMS lessons and assignments.

    After acquiring the knowledge, it's crucial to commit it to memory. By joining us in person for your first Academy Intensive, you can solidify your understanding through real-time coaching and feedback from your NBR Educators. This invaluable experience will prepare you to advance to the next phase confidently.


    STRUCTURE: NBR = Linear // BMS = Free Flow



  • Complete the NBR and BMS Theory portions by watching the video lessons and passing the quizzes.

  • Complete the NBR and BMS Practical Assignments by submitting your work for feedback.

  • After each Practical Assignment is graded, review your feedback and implement what you are learning.

  • Attend your Phase 1 Academy 2-Day Intensive (in-person).



  • Now that you’ve learned the basics, it's time to strengthen and solidify your foundations for success. Phase 2 will intensify your learning by focusing on areas for improvement and developing habits that support consistent progress and skill mastery.


    As you consume the foundational curriculum inside Phase 2 you will continue to implement your discoveries both in front of and behind the chair.


    The focus here inside NBR is to hone in on areas for improvement, ensuring you are fine-tuning your skills. You'll now be required to submit your NBR work on a human, and while you've made progress, it's common to redo Practical Assignments to apply your learning.  Perfection is not required, but being open to feedback is.

  • Dive deeper into BMS to master consultations, create professional contracts, and develop a killer marketing plan that will keep you booked months in advance with NBR Clients. Standing out in the beauty industry requires more than just technical skills, so we'll also teach you how to capture stunning photos that attract more clients and showcase your work.

    As you progress, you may encounter new pressures and stresses. In Phase 2, you'll learn to utilize a powerful tool called the Stack, which will help you process situations and explore new possibilities. By focusing on these aspects, Phase 2 will further enhance your skills and prepare you for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in your journey.

    In Phase 3, the lines between theory and practical assignments blur as we adopt a more integrated approach. This allows you to advance one lesson at a time, focusing on fine-tuning specific skills with precision and mastery.


    With a solid foundation in NBR, it's time for the final checks in beadwork, hair placement, stitching, and ensuring flawless start and end beads. Embrace this opportunity to learn and evolve from each client interaction. What valuable insights can you learn from their return visits and feedback?

  • As your NBR skills continue to flourish, you will notice an increased need to cultivate your business mindset and enhance your entrepreneurial skills.
