Extension Academy

Milvali Hair Extension Training and Certification

Real Extension Education and what no other class will teach you.

  • Learn 2 DAMAGE-FREE Methods - Micro-links and Tape In
  • Learn PROPER sectioning and weight distribution
  • It's not a class, it's an EDUCATION

  • Let's get real- you can't learn this skill from an online video or a 6 hr class. You also can't be properly educated by someone who isn't an actual extensionist with behind-the-chair, real-life years of experience. Do your research and choose your education and investment wisely.

    Hair extensions are a $2.6 billion dollar industry, and they are a true art form. Unfortunately, statistics show that 65% of stylists do NOT get the proper training and education to master this art. And because of that, they lose their clients. Don’t let that be you! Learn how to apply extensions the CORRECT way and start increasing your clientele and income.


    The personalized teaching you’ll get with Deb Monti is unlike any other Hair Extension Training and Certification available. Deb, co-owner of Milvali Salon - with locations in both San Francisco and Mill Valley - is an award-winning extensionist whose salon has been top rated by Allure, Racked SF, Short Cuts and San Francisco Magazine, and ranks "Best Hair Extensions" year after year in the San Francisco Chronicle's A-List. While running a successful business, training stylists and working behind the chair as a reputable extensionist for the past decade, Deb will finally share all of her coveted secrets about extensions and why it's important to be more educated than your competition!


    Your training with Deb is from the heart. She’s passionate about her work and you’ll get the kind of education that you can only get from someone who really knows what they’re doing. Plus, Deb will share all of her tips and tricks with you that can only be taught by someone who has actual real-life experiences behind the chair doing extensions day after day. Since there are only 4 other stylists along with you, you’ll get the attention you need to become a consummate pro.

    Deb, and her team have gone through great measures to research extensively and curate Milvali's own brand of superior hair extensions, which are only available to stylists that have been personally taught by Deb to assure that their superior quality hair extensions are applied with only the highest quality service.
    Keep in mind: our training has NOTHING to do with extension brands. We are NOT representatives who are trying to get you to buy our brand. Your training is about the METHOD and the TECHNIQUE and how to have long-term success.
