You can’t really do a lot with the hair that you are born with, but you can definitely choose to make it better now! When the trend is to look natural, women are actively choosing natural-looking extensions to get that new style in just a matter of minutes. Thanks to Mckenzie Turley, founder of Invisible Bead Extensions, who introduced beadless extensions that became a game-changer in the cosmetology industry.
When we talk about traditional hair extensions, it often comes with telltale beads and an itchy scalp that is not only one of the nightmares for your look but also limits your styling experiments. With seamless hair extensions, women loved how they could switch their looks while enjoying an itch-free scalp. Furthermore, Turley aimed at creating methodologies and innovation that would have a unique stitching technique and equal weight distribution to combine a groundbreaking result. So when someone is hoping to get glammed up with quality and natural-looking extensions, beadless extensions have everything that would ensure you that you never have to suffer a ‘bad-hair day’ again!
With extensive experience in the industry, Turley rolled out IBE certifications that have been empowering young stylists with exactly the education and training that they have been looking to learn invisible bead extensions. She says, “With IBE, we changed the way stylists look at an extension install.”
Turley’s personal experiences in the field drove her to launch this certification. “This industry is full of ‘noise’. There are so many stylists that proclaim to be extension educators, but really are just looking to gain social media followers. They push content out that is “clickbait”, looking to be an educational reel, but the real intent is to try and have something go viral”, she says. While she was familiar with the flawed tutorials and horrific hair extension techniques of the industry, she channelised her passion to create an authentic medium for stylists to learn and grow.
Her training is fueled by the idea of getting the stylists acquainted with candid insights about the industry and the practical intricacies of the seamless extensions. Furthermore, her stylists love how virtual training does not limit their learning due to geographical boundaries. The comprehensive sessions also pair stylists with a mentor for personalised training and guidance. IBE has a lot to offer to the young stylists and most importantly, it is the imparted confidence and learning that ramp up the growth of stylists in no time. Unlike “1-minute extension tutorial” or “Easy 5 minute YouTube session”, learning an invisible bead extension install isn’t a cakewalk, and IBE makes sure that the stylists leave no stone unturned to understand the real world of cosmetology.
The methods and comfort of invisible hair extensions are equivalent to magic in the cosmetology industry. Today, when women want to glam up with a voluminous look or a long twisted tail, they do not have to commit to revealing beads or undue tension on their scalp. While this method has popularly made its space in the industry, it has equally elevated the opportunities for budding stylists. Amidst such opportunities, it is all about learning the techniques the right way and with ideal trainers, and IBE promises its approaches to prepare stylists entirely to hit the ground running.
