Did you know that you do not have to be a licensed cosmetologist to perform hair extensions in the State of California?
This means anyone can get certified in doing hair extensions and make extra money from home. Just sign-up for one of our many in-person hair extension classes.
Here’s how it works: According to Section 7316.d.2 in Article 2 of the California Board of Barbering & Cosmetology Regulations, as long as the service does not require haircutting, coloring, straightening, curling, or any other alterations performed on the client’s hair, you do not have to be a licensed cosmetologist. Therefore, you can legally perform hair extensions on clients without a cosmetology license.
Doing hair extensions often does require cutting and styling of the hair after installed. Thus, we recommend partnering up with a licensed cosmetologist who can cut, color, and/or style hair after the hair extension application. It opens up a lot of opportunity for making extra money.
