When it comes to education, you have many options.

AND With all the hand-tied and beaded things on the market, how do you know which one to choose?​

You've seen words like "seamless, hidden, or flawless" to describe hair extensions only to find out they're not ANY of these things.

But let's be honest, it doesn't matter what sales tactic phrases you use if you genuinely don't understand WHY your system works.

Here at NBR® Education we have targeted training that acts like building blocks in your learning, ensuring you know WHY your method of choice works and how to customize it to each client's unique needs.


Process & materials

No harsh chemicals, tapes, or glues, NBR® is made up of beads, string, and hair. That's it!

This means removal is as quick as 5 minutes, and there is no more worrying about the long-term damage that can happen when removing other methods.

Because NBR® utilizes natural materials, clients can continue with all of the activities they love. That means surfing, hiking, snowboarding, swimming in pools and the ocean, or something as simple as shampooing and conditioning their hair AT their scalp. After all, extensions should not slow down your life... they enhance it!

Speaking of enhancements, the true cherry on top of any NBR® transformation is the use of ISLA® Hand-Tied hair which was created SPECIFICALLY for NBR® Artists.

ISLA® hair fades on tone, so no worrying about blondes coming back yellow or orange, and almost every color is pre-rooted for a seamless blend with LESS work.

Whether platinum blonde, balayage, bronde, or even creative color, you have unlimited options when you pair NBR® with ISLA®!


When we talk about placement, there are two different types.

The first is the placement of the rows on the head.

Where the row sits on the head isn’t just about horizontal or vertical sectioning. No, it’s about the clients unique head shape and their hair density! The training inside our education shows you exactly how to find that perfect spot, so no hair-style is off-limits.

The placement of NBR® allows clients to lead normal and active lives and the ability to choose any hairstyle. Whether it be high ponytails, buns, braids, space buns, or even half-up ponytails, your client has the freedom to choose!

The second type of placement is the placement of the individual wefts on the row. We cover exactly how to layer your wefts to achieve that bold money piece or add dimension to a client whose hair always looks one color no matter how many foils you put in.


What exactly is a point of contact? Simply said, it’s the bead section or the part of the clients natural hair that is secured in the bead.

While NBR® uses significantly fewer points of contact than individuals or some other beaded methods, it’s important not to use too few points of contact.

The number of contact points directly relates to the clients natural texture and density, and inside the Online Course, we show you how to determine the number of contact points and the correct bead section shape and size.

Having the right bead section shape, size and spacing ensure the hair is not caught in the stitch and the weight of the row will remain evenly distributed even during the grow-out process.

The NBR® row is finished using one of three different ways to adjust the start and end beads, ensuring your clients comfort and their hair are protected.

Healthier hair. Happier client.
