To be fully insured, you’ll need to complete a separate extensions course unless they were covered in your (level 3) training.
Your insurance will only cover the units you‘ve passed an assessment on. For instance, not all hairdressers will have completed training on Perming or Chemical Straightening either. It depends on what course options you’ve taken.
On my level 3, you could choose either advanced perming or hair extensions, so I did advanced perming. You can pick up a short course in hair extensions much more easily afterwards, but I’ve not seen any advanced perming courses offered as a separate course.
Thank you once again!
Was wondering as many hairdressers seems to offer hair extensions, but I don't feel like they all know much about extensions (not questioning at all their job as hairdressers), so just wanted to confirm are they free to offer extensions just because they are hairdressers without doing a course for extensions, like if you are a hairdresser are you free to go on and offer extensions without any additional courses etc.
Just to go back to my own experience, there were only two of us that opted to do advanced perming, everyone else chose the hair extensions unit. So chances are, most hairdressers completing level 3 courses have completed a hair extensions unit as part of their course.
