Simplicity Hair Extensions is passionate about education and creating a top-notch certification program for stylists and educators to become expert in the application of Simplicity extensions. Who better to teach them than Vivienne Mackinder who, along with her artistic team and other top educators, conducted a recent three-day intensive Train the Trainer event for the company.

The training event included future educators and stylists eager to become certified in the application of Simplicity extensions. The training included not only application techniques but a curriculum that included client consultation, managing the client’s expectation for extensions and the art of blending, styling and presenting the array of options offered by Simplicity extensions.

Vivienne and her Train the Trainers team will represent Simplicity Hair Extensions as the brand launches with exclusive distribution partners. They will also conduct in-salon training and classes at trade shows.

Judi Meola, vice president of sales and marketing for Simplicity Hair Extensions, says this about the recent training event. “ We are so pleased to team with such a talented group of hair stylists in bringing our education efforts to the next level.”

Vivienne Mackinder and her team have created fantastic style collections using Simplicity Hair Extensions and with her Hair Designer TV, the team can bring Simplicity Hair Extensions’ education to an ever-increasing group of professionals.
Simplicity and Vivienne Mackinder’s Hair Designer TV will launch an online educational program in 2012.
