This one day course is available for beginners and hair dressers

Why is this such a popular course with our students?

You do not need any previous experience.

Students' feedback indicated that they were surprised and happy that it was very easy to apply the hair extensions, much easier than they thought it would be.

Why choose the Nano Ring and Hot Fusion hair extension system?

NANO RINGS and HOT FUSION HAIR EXTENSIONS (in our opinion and feedback from students) are by far the best two systems on the market for hair extensions... Why? NANO Rings use No GLUE, No HEAT, No DAMAGE! Earn up to £575 for a full head application! And Hot Fusion is the most commonly preferred method by clients for security and long lasting results.

Why learn with us and not with another school?

These two systems are very easy to apply, students are contacting us who have not been happy with other training schools who have trained them in more than two methods when they have larger classes as they did not feel they got enough one to one training.

We have learnt from this, so here at GATEWAY we only take up to 6 students so it is easy for you to learn in one day so you can easily learn them effectively giving you a lot of one to one tuition. This gives you the confidence to use what you have learnt with your clients right away and charge the general public.

About this course

Learn the best method of hair extensions in just one days training!


NANO rings are the smallest and most discreet hair extensions in the industry to date.

The NANO ring hair extension system is specifically engineered to provide the smallest reusable rings that won’t slide out of your clients’ hair. They are up to 90% smaller and less detectable than any other ring system.

When a good quality human hair is used with the NANO ring system, the hair can last up to two years.

There is no glue used, no wax, no fusion or weaving, which means there is no mess.

Good quality hair will last 6 weeks -3 months before your client will have to have maintenance.

We also teach the popular hot fusion method which is also really easy to learn and very much in demand by clients.

Do I need to bring a model with me


You will be working on dolls heads during the course and will also have the opportunity to apply a row of nano or micro rings to each others hair so please come with clean straightened hair on your course day.

Products Used

This course is not brand specific; it is training in the application and technique. This therefore provides students with more options re purchasing stock and equally their insurance. The tutor will go through all of this within your training but if you wish to use another brand they will tell you where to get these, however the technique is the same for all brands.

The course fee includes the Materials/products used on the day so no hidden extras to pay.

Certificate - Insurance - Brands

Why is our course so popular?

This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.

Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Who do we train?

Every year we train thousands of therapists, from Champneys Health Resort, large professional salons like Dior, leading hotels like the Mandarin Oriental Spa at the Knightsbridge 5 star hotel, the Sanctuary, John Lewis Spa, Bobbi Brown, Channel 4 as well as training therapists and complete beginners who come to us at one of our many venues.
