About Maxwell Melia

Founded by passionate specialists in the hair extension industry, Maxwell Melia Academy are committed to providing everything you need to get your new hair extension business off to a fantastic start and provide the best possible service to your clients!

We are much more than just a training academy – we offer the complete course package to help you make your business a profitable success. Our courses have been developed with you in mind by taking feedback from each and every one of you and using this information to consistently improve our training and raise the standard of professionals in the industry.

We pride ourselves in giving high-quality training and attention to each of our students. We have intimate class sizes of less than 5 students per trainer so that we can assist each person individually. Our training sessions are always friendly and relaxed to help students feel comfortable asking for help when required. All of our trainers are highly experienced and influential in their field.

We are the most flexible training academy in the industry, allowing you to choose and mix our most up to date and popular methods to suit your ideal target client base. We offer a payment plan system to enable you to spread the cost of the training so most of it can be paid back once you are qualified.

Our courses are suitable for both complete beginners as well as experienced stylists. We include cutting and blending as well as marketing strategies, pricing and how to launch your new business in all of our courses. A full professional kit is provided for you on the day to take home and get started right away. Free refresher training is available within 3 months of passing the course if necessary.
