Understanding Hair Loss – Courses for Stylists

Understanding Hair Loss - Training Courses for Hairdressers


Hair loss can be sudden or gradual and there are many reasons why someone may be experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. The most common reasons for hair loss include male or female pattern baldness, alopecia, stress, genetics, side effects from medications, cancer treatments, hormones and simply getting older.   

At Postiche Academy we offer training courses, advice and support for hair professionals and hair extensionists who want to offer hair loss solutions to their clients. While it's always great to be able to offer another service such as hair extensions or mesh integration systems for hair loss, it can also be incredibly rewarding when you can offer people the solutions and support they need.

The first step for stylists interested in learning how to fit hair replacement systems is to understand the fundamentals of hair loss which we explain clearly during our cost-effective training course.

Our 1-day Fundamentals of Hair Loss Course is suitable for stylists who want to offer their clients the best hair loss solutions. You will find out more about trichology, the factors that contribute to hair loss, how to recognise hair loss, and how you can help clients with thin hair and hair loss.
