The Only Method That Consistently
Delivers The Best Results
Invisible Bead Extensions® was specifically created to solve 3 major problems encountered
with the different types of hand-tied methods available.
to the client’s hair and scalp from tension, over-direction and haphazard installs.
due to the contact of beads on the scalp and the common “clamp and crank” beading approach.
which means no more exposed beads, bonds, or braids when wearing hair up.
With our patented method and an industry changing education model, Invisible Bead Extensions® has solved all three of these problems and has helped stylists across the world to do the same.
If you have ever attended an extension certification class, you can without a doubt relate to the common practice that was frustrating—if not infuriating. Without fail, at the end of each class, I left being “CERTIFIED” yet still had so many questions regarding the method or how to apply it behind the chair. I wasn’t ready! I had no mentor, no community, and nowhere to turn for support.
In creating the IBE® certification program, I vowed to change the way stylists were educated and bring something NEW to the industry. I developed a program focused on the stylist and setting them up for success. As an IBE® Artist, you will earn a real “CERTIFICATION” in the original Invisible Bead method that has revolutionized the extension industry. You will understand the how, what, and why behind the method and be fully confident in correctly applying these skills behind the chair….Without ever having to travel anywhere.
IBE® brings a hybrid of technology and one-on-one mentoring to your education experience. All IBE® modules and training sessions are shot in high definition and broken down into 3 different certification sections. You can pause, stop, rewind and work at your own pace and always have a front-row seat. Once you are accepted into the program, you will begin the one-on-one mentorship with your hand selected IBE® Master Mentor. This Mentor is DEDICATED TO YOU! Finally, that personal coach to answer every question and explain every detail.
We did not become the most requested extension method and brand by chance. That has come from creating an education program that works and a method that women across the globe can’t live without. The social proof is everywhere!
“Mentors are cheat codes sis.
Get you one!”
The IBE® Certification program is one of a kind, greatly due to our unique one on one approach to your education. You are paired with a mentor based on your interview and who we feel you’d best connect with. Your mentor is your “ride or die” throughout the entire training process. She will guide your learning and move at a comfortable pace that you establish. As you move through the training modules, she will be there with you every single step of the way.

The Road To Becoming an Elite
Artist and IBE® Platform Artist
Our biggest request from certified stylists was, “I want to grow with the company!”
So with this request we launched the IBE® Masters Program.
- This program is for the serious stylist that is wanting to take their IBE® and extension career to the next level.
- Master Stylists will earn a higher designation and education levels as they pass from IBE® Certified to IBE® Master Stylist to IBE® Elite Artist and Finally IBE® Platform Artist.
- Master's sessions are held 3 times per year in January, May and August. No application is needed but you must already be IBE® Certified to enroll. Seats are limited to ensure the education is intimate and elite.
- Once a stylist has completed all 4 Masters courses, they have the option to become an Elite Artist. Elite Artists are then qualified to apply to become part of our Global Platform Artist Team.

Career Changing Education
The stylist locator and your outstanding efforts on marketing via socials just makes me want to cry! Grateful tears, of course! I was worried that with most of my clientele being color and color corrections, that it would be hard to to bring in new IBE clients. I was SO wrong. The stylist locator and IBE insta page have done almost all the work for me and I am so grateful.AMANDA PERKINS
I have only been back to work for 9 days and 4 of my clients already want IBE. YES!!! Thank you. Almost every night I have been rewatching videos. Every time I watch I learn something new again. I haven’t been this motivated to start something new in a very long time.RYAN ROBERTSON
Hey McKenzie! I’m exhausted and in pain from standing so long, but I wanted to say thank you. Because of IBE I can help my family financially AND only work two days a week! I only 3 clients in the last two days, but I made more money that I would have if I worked an entire month doing other hair services! I will never be able to say thank you enough.BONNIE SHOLOCK
Seriously having a blast! This is by far my favorite, yet most challenging method I’ve ever been certified in. I love going to work! I worked 3 days last week and made $4,557!Michelle Moore
I am SO beyond happy you created the literal best method out there! I stopped doing extensions 2 years ago because I couldn’t find a method that I felt confident letting my clients wear in their everyday lives. Then I found IBE! Thank you, thank you for sharing your knowledge and your brand!IBE stylist
I just have to say that I am so so happy to have joined the BOOST program. This has helped me so so much. Amazing tips and tricks. Yesterday I reached out about pricing and quickly had a response. Can’t wait for the Masters Program!IBE stylist
I never would’ve thought 7 months after certification I would be an extension only stylist! I have at least 4-5 women reach out every day. At least 1-2 new deposits per week! I definitely need a full time assistant!Leah Carerra
Thank you so much!!! I have to say that I have taken MANY extension “certifications” over the last 13 years and this one was by far the best. Most companies don’t actually care if you can truly do the method. I really admire and respect your education model because I know how much work it takes and am thankful to have found you!!! ❤️❤️❤️Carly Zanoni
Thank you thank you thank you Mckenzie. I can't believe how much time you took and how many thoughts you shared. Most people are just happy to grab your money and be done with it and I've never experienced a program before where you had to in a sense audition to be accepted and then you had to work really hard under strict guidance to be able to get certified. This in my opinion is how all classes should be and the fact that you take so much pride in your product makes me very happy to be a part of it. It makes me realize that I could recommend my clients to any other certified stylist if I was unable to take care of them because I was going away on vacation for example and I know they would be taken care of correctly. It definitely makes it seem more like a family. I am really excited to use this wonderful method and I really look forward to meeting you in person in the future. Your method and your classes are truly perfect and I have really enjoyed every minute of it.Chris Rosenthal
I can’t wait to see where my career goes with these extensions! I just announced I was certified last week and I have already had 7 consultations!IBE® stylist
I have been absolutely loving this method I cannot thank you enough for your detaIls and all the hard work that went into creating this and making it as amazing as it is. My clients have absolutely been loving the transition and have been more than willing to to pay a little more for it. I have gained quite a few new extension clients and I would say about 5+ have been from the IBE stylist finder.IBE® stylist
I know you probably get these a lot but I was curious how it would be for me. WOW! Officially certified Friday and 4 clients now have IBE and 6 others booked and deposits down. My heart is full! So glad I took this new route in my career.Whitey Cullen
Girl, I just want to say thanks for being you and creating something only you could have perfected. Since I started training with IBE in September, I’ve been able to move from booth rent to opening my own salon in November. That was in two months. It’s now July and I’m booking out the rest of the year and am closing my books for new clients until I can get an assistant. Do you realize how much growth that is in such a short time?! It’s crazy. I’m finally financially stable enough I feel like I can breath. I’m caught up on bills, working on my credit and building a fatter file. I’m adulting and before I was just surviving. Thank you.Jasmin Khan
I love the IBE system, best investment I’ve made in the past few years for sure, and having the stylist locator has been a goldmine for me! Very happy girl right here, keep up the great work, its a blessing!Tina Roberts
I can’t even express what this method and training has done for my career! I am give my clients THE BEST extensions for their hair, scalp and their confidence! I’m so grateful you have shared your talents with the world and I cannot even begin to tell you what this has done for my confidence as a stylist... But most importantly my clients are happy! Period. There is nothing like invisible bead extensions and the result you get when you take the time to master your craft. Thank you for that opportunity. Thank you for showing me how to be a student and reteaching myself out of some BAD HABITS. If girls need a reason to take this course .. do it for yourself because through this method I have found what I’m really capable of... and it’s lethal ???Christina Ditri
IBE paid for itself in less than 2 months. The increase in my business has been out of the roof. The IBE education difference is the fact that the education never stops! I’ve got continued support from engagement groups and through the BOOST app I can ask questions at any time with immediate response.IBE® stylist
I just wanted to say I’m so glad I crossed paths with you and learned IBE. Thank you for months of frustration for it lead me to this week. A good week for me before was about 2500. Double booked and exhausted. I did 6700 this week! Not double booked and even though I work the same hours I’m not as mentally drained. There’s something about the sewing that is weirdly calming for me! I can’t wait to see what’s in store once I perfect this! Thank you and you’ve changed by professional life for the better!Rachelle Daniels
Thankful for you and IBE… in the middle of a pandemic, not being allow to double book, I had my best month of my career in June. My savings is back to where it was before the first shut downs so I’m ready for the next one!Amanda Wolfe
I just wanted to let you know that I’m obsessed with IBE. I NEVER had any interest in doing extensions until I researched this method. Since getting certified my business is booming. When i say booming, I’m literally having to refer out other services to get my extension clients in! I already have a waiting list thru August for new installs. I jsut can’t believe the response I’ve gotten and the REVENUE it’s bringing in! Thank you!!Courtney Jackson
Thank you for establishing such a stylist positive brand. I have gotten so many requests for new services from the stylist tracker! Worth every penny!Anonymous
IBE® paid for itself in less than 2 months. I was one of the first 100 people selected to take the IBE® course and now officially 11 months in. The increase in my business has been out the roof and I've slowly been transitioning to color, IBE®, and eyelash clients only.Brianna Vinson
I love the IBE® system, best investment I've made in the past few years for sure, and having the stylist locator has been a goldmine for me. Very happy girl right here, keep up the great work, it's a firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for the best extension course EVER!!!! I have so many new extenions clients coming in soon and more messaging needs it's totally insane!! This changed my career in the best possible way.Anonymous
This community is so much more than an extension class. I truly feel like everyone is helping each other and lifting each other up, my only regret, is not starting sooner. So thankful for this new family!Jamie Diamond
