Hey, burned out stylist, I hear you!


You’ve tried to offer it all: cuts, colors, men’s, women’s, and even perms! - but ended up stressed out, overworked and with a time management mess.

You’ve tried cutting back and specializing your services, but it only resulted in giving up valuable clients to other stylists.  Talk about backfiring!

You wonder how long you can stay in this industry feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, and underpaid.

You see successful stylists in magazines, but you feel more confused than ever on how to get your life to look like theirs.

You wish someone would just take you by the hand and guide you through a proven success formula that will work in REAL LIFE, and that you had a way you could just ask questions when you need to.


There has never been a better time to become the master of your career.


Imagine what it will feel like when you’re finally making decent money for your expertise.

Imagine what you’re going to feel like when you don’t have to fake a positive attitude, you are inspired to create truly beautiful hair, you have deeper connections with your clients, your life is no longer an unmanageable mess, you have time to relax, and you are loving every minute of every day.

  • Maybe you can finally pay off all of your debts.

  • You turn clients into raving fans - who seek you out and drive hours just to be in your chair.

  • You can take care of unexpected bills without it disrupting your life.

  • Your coworkers are jealous of your results and how easy you make it look.

  • Your friends and family tell you they haven’t seen you this happy in years.


You’re ready to take hold of your styling career, but you’ve got a lot of questions!

question bubble2.png


“I want to make more money, but I don't know which is the best way to get there.”
“I don’t even have time for my clients now, how could I squeeze new services in?”
“This seems really overwhelming, I don’t have a plan to follow.”
“Where do I even start with hair extensions?”


I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you’re looking to add hair extension services for the first time. There is a lot on the line. If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some expensive learning mistakes, lose clients, bruise your confidence, and fall short of a career revamp. Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all!


That’s why I’ve created my step by step course, Hair Extension Artistry.

Melinda is a an unrivaled hair educator.  I have received several trainings and as a result I have watched my business grow into my dream career. I enjoy a stable clientele that LOVES their hair.
I am proud to say that these courses have increased my confidence. They are awesome!  Melinda’s teaching style is clear and easy to follow. She has the unique ability to break down complex subjects into simple bites.  I was able to apply everything I learned in my business.
I have no regrets!  I am grateful for everything I have gained through her courses.

The entire program is completely digital so you can access it from anywhere through our private course portal. And you'll never miss a beat: you can go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule.

During the installation portions, you can follow along and practice on mannequin heads to get your perfect rhythm.  Our add-on kits are optional, but they have all of the tools you need.



The honest answer is, it depends on you and your current situation. Most of our students are able to earn more immediately after completing the course.

Others might take a few extra months to practice and refine their new skills. There is no rush and no right or wrong amount of time, because you have lifetime access to the program and all future updates! Remember, you choose when the time feels right.

The course runs for 8 weeks.  We recommend you set aside 2-4 hours per week to go through the program and implement the assignments.

  • Amplify your income

It’s time to stop dreaming and start planning.

This course will help you transform your client’s self-image and create a career of abundance.  


"Hair extensions are too expensive for my clients."

Don’t believe the hype. It’s a myth. Companies with huge marketing campaigns and celebrity endorsements have to pay for those things somehow.  Unfortunately, their cost gets passed on to the client.  

In this course, I teach you where to source affordable extensions, and how to incorporate ethical pricing structures. I will show you how to do affordable services that range in price to fit every styling need and every budget.  

I will show you gorgeous long hair techniques that will cost your client less than an average hair color, but cost YOU less in time.  This is how we will gradually turn the table on your income.  By replacing low hourly earning services for higher earning ones, your income will shift dramatically without having to price gouge your friends and family.


"But I don’t want to be a pushy salesman."

Gross.  I don’t want that for you either.  This is about having the ability to offer services your clients actually want at prices they can regularly afford.  With the passive marketing techniques that I teach you, there are no pushy sales pitches and no empty promises.

I’m going to teach you how to be an expert hair extension installer.  With these advanced techniques, you will be able to give your clients hair that they LOVE.  Hair that nature and no other salon services could.  You will be able to create their dream hair at rates they can afford and they will gladly rebook every 45 days. Long flowing no-care-hair is addictive!


"I don’t feel confident in myself to learn this."

The things that I teach in this class are not hard to learn when they are broken down into simple components.  You will be able to watch the lessons as many times as you need to.  I will be with you every step of the way, helping you with questions as they come up.  You aren’t alone, and I believe in you.


"Wait...this sounds too good to be true - why doesn’t everyone do this?

Right?!  I think that all the time. The truth is that this isn’t for everyone.  If you or your clients aren’t interested in longer, thicker and more fabulous hair then it's not a good fit.  (Shout out to my barbers!  We still love you!)

However, if you feel a little spark when you think about hair extensions, then it's almost certain to increase your bottom line by a few thousand dollars each month - even with just a few clients. If you can magically transform someone’s short hair saving them the ugly years of grow out, you’ve just become their hero. No joke, these clients will love you - and they talk.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Do I have to be a stylist to take your course?

These systems are designed for working stylists. However, you don’t need to be licensed to take this course. If you are considering becoming a stylist or are still in school you can still benefit from these techniques. In fact, it will give you an edge to succeed. You will need to have a copy of your license on file with us when you apply for your certification credentials but you can do that at a date in the future. (Note: this does not apply to areas where cosmetology is deregulated.)

+ When does the course begin and end?

The course is 100% online. It begins as soon as you enroll.

+ What kind of support is included?

During the course you will have priority email access for any questions you might have.

+ Do I get lifetime access to the course material?

Of course! New modules will come out every week during the course but after that they will remain live for the lifetime that we offer this course.

+ What is the time commitment per week?

You should plan on setting aside 2 to 4 hours per week to review and implement the material.

+ Are there other costs besides the enrollment cost?

Possibly. If you are new to hair extensions, it is likely that you will need to purchase the tools and practice supplies for the three technique modules. If you already have tools and supplies, you may choose to use your own. There will be full course kits available. Supply lists will be sent out in advance.


Hey there!  I’m Melinda (or Doc if you prefer nicknames) and I’m obsessed with hair extensions!

I am the owner and founder of Doctored Locks Hair Extensions.  I am an internationally recognized educator and cosmetologist with over 20 years of extension experience.

Over the last two decades, I have helped thousands of struggling stylists create their dream job and stabilize their income through adding higher end niche hair services to their repertoire.

I created this course because I know that stylist burnout is all too real.  My goal is to keep you engaged, and building toward a career that fulfills you.  I can’t wait to help you get your clients hooked and for you to create your own successful hair extension career.

I’m excited to have you on board!

15 years ago in March, I found Doctored Locks on the internet. My passion for hair extensions started as a hobby.  This has now grown into a fully fledged massively successful business.  The main thing for me is I absolutely love my job.  I branched out into crazy coloured hair and helping people who were recovering from cancer and transforming their very short hair.  Thank you for helping me bring out my inner creativity and realise my dream. xx
