SECTIONING - It’s the foundation of NBR®,

And in the NBR® Online Course, you’ll learn all the in-depth nitty-gritty details on the unique sectioning that allows the client ultimate versatility in everyday or special occasion styling!

BEADWORK - Creating a beautiful structure with only beads and string.

Learn how to correctly do NBR® beadwork and how it supports the weight of the row while protecting the hair inside the bead.

PLACING HAIR - It's more than just pinning hair!

Here we'll focus on perfectly placing wefts of ISLA® Hair for a seamless feel. Part of a flawless NBR® installation is ensuring there is no unwanted bulk, so your clients leave with drool-worthy blends and hair that feels and looks like their own.

It doesn’t stop there! You’ll learn all the minimums and maximums when it comes to placing wefts on each row and how to create weft patterns for a customized look for every client sitting in your chair.

STITCHING - Get ready to place, pinch and pull!

Here you'll learn how the unique NBR® stitch keeps your client's row feeling secure until their next appointment.

START & END BEADS - Because no one wants their row flapping around unfinished.

Learn the theory and technique behind the three different options you have for finishing your row that will leave your client feeling confident and comfortable as they leave your chair!

CUT - The cut will make or break the end result in every extension transformation.

Over-cutting or under-cutting, will affect the outcome for your client and determine how good the blend really is. The classic NBR® cut is the ideal framework for you to create an effortless blend for any client and give them the stunning results NBR® has become known for.

STYLE - Not only does the style complete the NBR® transformation…

It’s also a huge contributor to the number of leads you get. Think about it, styling plays a major part in creating looks that can be used for your marketing.

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to create stunning beach waves for a look right out of a magazine so that you always end up providing your clients with a finished result that makes all their friends jealous.

REFRESH APPOINTMENT - Because not everyone gets a new install at every appointment!

If we have to say it, the above is a joke! The ONLY time you would do a full new install six weeks after the first one is if your client wanted to make a major color or length change.

Otherwise, we refer to the appointment in between as the tightening, refresh, or maintenance appointment, and inside the Online Course, you'll learn the flow of a 5-minute removal, the re-installation process, and how to replace hair with a quick, effortless ease that creates a truly luxurious experience for your clients and zero stress for you!
