I have been doing my own hair extensions for years and would really love how to do it professionally(I would never try it on someone else's hair without really knowing what I'm doing!) I can't find out exactly how to do it. Do I need to go to the full cosmetology school even though I only want to do extensions? I live in Buffalo NY and on the NYS website about this I learned that you need a "Natural Hairstyling License" which requires "Must complete a 300-hour, New York State approved course of study and pass both the New York State written and practical examinations to get a license to operate in this state." or of course do the whole 1000 entire cosmetology license. The problem is that I can't find any where that offers the course! AT ALL!!! And any of the programs that teach you how to do different kinds of extensions by companies, salons etc require you to be licensed first. Does anyone know where to take the 300 hr course in NYS? Thanks for any info

the schools only teach cosmetology not just extensions and cosmetology is way too long and doesn't even cover extensions! No I don't do dreadlocks, sorry!

I'm sorry, i rushed through my last reply... i meant be sure your clients know and agree to the fact that you are not licensed. as far as being certified, the other companies require it for their hair and www.pierrediamondtrends.com does not. there hair is by far better than the other companies hands down. we all love just how the hair performs..that is overall key!! :)

WELL I KNOW FOR SURE THAT THERE ARE 1000'S OF GREAT ARTIST/HAIRSTYLIST IN THE UNITED STATE.....SO WHY IS IT THAT THERE IS NO SCHOOL FOR HAIR EXTENSIONSIST,I KNOW THAT IS NOT A WORD.....BUT THAT IS WHY WE NEED A SCHOOL FOR BRAIDER, WEAVER, SHAMPOO STYIST,AND RECEPTIONIST......WE NEED TO KNOW THE CORRECT TERMINOLOGY AND HOW TO ACT PROFESSIONAL.

YES!!! you must go to cosmetology school to become licensed in hair extentions lol I learned that the hard way. Once you have your license you attend a special class for extentions that last about 3 days and you are certified for extentions.

I'm not from NY, but I think I can answer your question.

Hair extensions are a specialty of cosmetology. Before you can start working towards becoming an extensions specialist.. you have to be a licensed cosmetologist first.

Step 1) Complete your 1000 hour course. You're not just going to school to learn to do hair.. they'll mostly just teach you the basics. You're primarily going to school to learn how to be safe... which is the most important thing a stylist can know. An unlicensed stylist can burn your hair off, burn/stain your skin, or give you an infectious disease... like herpes on your eyebrow. Don't laugh.. it's happened.

If you can't go to school.. you can find a LICENSED stylist to apprentice under. In California.. you have to apprentice for two documented years before you can take your state board exam. Oh.. and btw.. in CA the course is 1600 hours. Be happy you're in NY.

Step 2) Once you've gotten your license, you can find a course that will teach you how to do extensions properly. If you can't find a course, find a licensed stylist who can teach it to you.

Good luck,

i'd recommend brushing up your skills in a seminar given by many of the top salons teaching techniques and styles then go into business for yourself or search for a beauty salon (or barbershop) looking for a braider where you can work under a master stylist and get an apprenticeship license as a cosmetologist after 1000 hrs and take the wash & blow dry classes at beauty school

People are licensed for a reason... would you feel comfortable with me comming at your face with a straight razor if I said it was ok because I read a book and got licensed?

hello,

if you do not want to go to school you can find someone with a senior license and apprentice under them. Usually the person may do it for free but even if it is for a small fee it is saving you a lot of money in comparison to paying for school. You will have to complete a certain amount of hours which will allow you to become a licensed cosmetologist and you will be able to work while you are learning because you dont need a license to do natural hair which is a plus for you. I will say take classes on natural hair care and get your certifications at the end of each class for you validation! i hope this helps.

Kinyetta in Brooklyn, New York said: The man knows that most people that do hair extensions are Black and they want to keep people from making money. This forces you to take 1,000 of cosmetology school so they get their money though. I'm in the same boat and we need to organize, organize, organize and petition for this certification to be added to the State licensing. Why would they have a bried grandparenting stage and then take it away? You only take away something that there isn't a demand for and Natural Hair care is presently in high demand, which leads me back to my former statement.

i dont understand, r u saying that because the majorty of people that do exstentions are black, they r tryin to make it more difficult for u????? if so that is nonsence/and not fair to say. its because people work there butt of going to beauty school and if ur going to be in the beauty industry (weather it exstentions or anything else) u should be licened. PERIOD.. and i think that if ur good at doing the extentions u would be good at other things as well and u would probley enjoy beauty school. it is expencive but i got two grants that helped pay for half my schooling(witch is huge) i dont know u sitituation but maybe u could get that as well........but for me the moral of the story is it not a black, white, yellow, purple, there are rules and they should be followed.

It's nuts!!
I live in Florida and can't find a school just to get certified in doing weaves along.
I don't want to do anything else. "It's my choice.. and I'm not interested in color, nail, facials, etc. I got 200 hrs. and it's not my cup of tea.
I'm an aspiring "Weaveologist". Rules should be followed, but we shouldn't be made to take out a freaken loan to go to school. "They give us no choice" Gov't B.S.

Most stylists or aspiring stylists must look outside of their area to train. If you are serious about training then you must venture out and seek professional training from schools or training centers that may not be in your particular city or state.
Here is a highly reccomended trainer and school located in MD.

PLEASE! THIS PERSON IS TOTALLY MISINFORMED! YOU MUST BE LICENSED IN NY TO PERFORM ANY SERVICE ON A PATRON IN NYS!!! People like you advising unlicensed operators to go get a job in a shop should be banded from even getting a license!!! NY has a Natural Hair license and a cosmetology license. Any one working on hair in a salon in NY state w/out proper licensing is operating illegally. While NY state doesn't have any schools currently offering this course, and that is why I have commissioned the state to accept a natural hairstyling proposal, which is very difficult. I worked in one of the natural hair styling schools that was in Brooklyn NY, and it closed for lack of enrollment, back in the early 2000s. The woman who wrote the grant to get the license for natural hair ran the school until it shut down. Her name is Nzingah and she owned the school and salon in Brooklyn on Greene and Broadway near the J train, Nzingah's Hair Gallery, it's closed now. Cosmetology is a honorable career. I encourage you to become fully licensed so that you can have more doors open for you. WE NEED TO RALLY TOGETHER TO GET NATURAL HAIR SCHOOLS OPENED, NOT ADVISE OUR TALENTED STYLIST TO PROSTITUTE MY INDUSTRY FURTHER AS MANY ARE DOING WITH THEIR ILLEGAL "HAIR BRAID" SHOPS! Get a license and become a professional with integrity!

Wow all you guys bring up valid points on both sides of the spectrum. I would have to say though like a couple of other post , if I don't want to take cosmetology because I simple want to do weaving techniques and blow out " natural /chemical free " hair, then why is that a problem? It seems that " licensed cosmetologist have the hang up that if you don't go to school for it and pay those ridiculous fees for the things that they are not going to teach you in cosmetology school, then you are doing somethin illegal. Smh that doesn't make sense or is it fair. And the fact of the matter us a lot of these "schools" are not even preparing "some" of these students other than how to pass that state board test. They come out of school still messing people head up because " some"
of these students still didn't learn how to do a chemical process correctly. And speaking of chemical processes, some people don't want to inhale those poisonous fumes that the gov. Knows is dangerous to peoples health! Stylist and client! If I or whoever does not want to take those chemical classes because of health reasons then that should be a legal choice ! A natural hair stylist is considered to be a cultural thing in most states in this country, therefore making it almost impossible to get recognized in that state as a stylist. I think that cosmetology is a good business but if a person does not want to take those courses because that is not their field if interest then other courses should be offered. Don't say that what a natural stylist or weavilogist who is not "licensed" because the state has no courses to offer or course curriculum is not a legit business! It's just recognized. And that's mainly because there is strength in numbers and there simply is not enough numbers to cause these state boards to reevaluate natural hair stylist and extention specialist. Smh this subject will be a debate until something or sone one stands up and includes the natural hair stylist and weave specialist.

I've contacted that americanhairacademy on 39th St in NYC. They offer the course but CANNOT get enough ppl to enroll. I went in to meet with the advisor on 3.17.12. Now I wear my hair naturally & see the shift towards natural hair care. I'd LOVE to open up my own salon in order to focus on braids/twists/dreads/weaves. This $300 hr course isn't being offered in a lot of places b/c folks want $10K for the 1,000hr course.
I'll be contacting the Beval school in Suffolk county. This is WAY out of my way & I drive, but I need to make a move b/c waiting for something else to open will leave me in a lurch. I hope this school has flexible courses. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

Hey folks! Here's an update! I've enrolled in the Beval International Natural Hair Stylist 300hr course. I'm making a major sacrifice of time/gas/tolls but happy I made the choice. The director/owner of the school, Beverly Chambers, is VERY pleasant and knowledgable. Once you pay your deposit you pay on a weekly basis. I work full time so I take the evening classes & all day Saturday. So far so good for my 1st week :) I can only see finances as being an impediment for folks since the school does not have a financial linkage to Pell/Tap and loans tha traditional colleges offer. However, if you live in Nassau Cty you can almost go to school for free. Ms. Chambers will let you know more about that. I feel as though I'm learning a lot & happy for a patient instructor and good classmates. Call Beval and just make the sacrifice. You've got to invest in yourself, better then investing in anything else :)

So glad i ran into this forum. I was in search of beauty schools that have natural hairstyling programs to become licensed in natural hair care. I live in NYC and the schools I contacted either required you to complete the entire cosmotology program to become licensed or the school and staff itself did not appear professional so i started to give up hope. I will DEFINITELY contact Beval on how i can become a student. It will be a mission to travel there but I reeeeeally want this! Thanks!!!

Natural Hairstyling is only limited to "natural hairstyling", meaning no heat, chemicals, dyes, haircutting, or adding hair extensions.
You need a full cosmetology license & then a heat-extension application license.
It is well worth it & you can pay it off within a year if you need a loan. Don't say buffalo doesn't have cosmetology schools, because there is a trade school in every city & they all offer adult-ed courses.

Has anyone actually been a student who successfully completed their certification for natural hairstyling from The Hair Academy on 39th st in NYC? I REALLY want to enroll in Beval International Beauty School in Baldwin LI but it is waaaaaay to far out for me and I do not have a vehicle. The Hair Academy is the next best option for me because its much closer and the only school I found in NYC that offers the 300 hr natural hairstyling course. Has anyone been a student or graduated from there? How can I find out if this is an accredited institution before I take the first step in enrolling? Thanks for any helpful feedback.

As a former cosmetology instructor, It is NOT necessary to be licensed in the state of CA to do Hair Extensions, but, there are guidelines. Some schools offer to teach it, and it will cost you more, but it is NOT a part of the state board licensing requirement.

Receiving any kind of education or knowledge to learn Hair Extensions from a reputable company such as Jon Renau, may require you to be licensed. Once you go through their course, you will then be 'certified'.

Once you pay your deposit you pay on a weekly basis. I work full time so I take the evening classes & all day Saturday. So far so good for my 1st week :) I can only see finances as being an impediment for folks since the school does not have a financial linkage to Pell/Tap and loans tha traditional colleges offer. However, if you live in Nassau Cty you can almost go to school for free. Ms. Chambers will let you know more about that. I feel as though I'm learning a lot & happy for a patient instructor and good classmates. Call Beval and just make the sacrifice. You've got to invest in yourself, better then investing in anything else :)
