5 stars. I did some training on 02/12/19 with Mel who was absolutely fabulous. The information she gave us was very interesting and she explained everything in such away it was extremely easy to grasp. Mel’s teaching techniques are relaxed and friendly which makes learning easy. I was extremely pleased with the whole experience and will be recommending Architect hair extension academy to anyone who will listen. Thank you and look forward to doing some more training in the future. More...
Brilliant training syllabus and atmosphere. I felt confident in asking many questions. Mel has a really down to earth flare to her teaching style, showing you how to get the best out of your course.
Today I had my hair extension course in 4 different methods, it was amazing and enjoyed every minute of the day. Mel is a true professional and is full of knowledge in and around the hair extensions industry but she also kept it light hearted and a truly fun day. Not only did she teach me about hair she also gave me business advise for my new salon opening, which I will take with me. Thanks mel for all you have taught me today, cant wait to come back and learn more with you and your beautiful company ❤ More...
Mel came to the salon today. She explained everything in great detail and I couldn’t ask enough questions (thank you). What an amazing teacher - never picked something up so quick. I have learned so much today and can not thank you enough. ❤️ More...
Absolutely brilliant, fantastic experience and so friendly really felt at ease!
Booked in last minute and Mel fit me in the day after, removing my nano rings I had in far too long which had really ruined my hair. She was really informative and knew so much about the industry. She took so much time to patiently take my hair out without damaging it further. She is the best most professional I have been too.... and that’s a lot! Thank you x More...
Thank you so much Melanie for a fabulous training day. I’m so excited to start the easiring Method on my clients. I had a lovely day at the academy learning a new skill and meeting lovely people. Thank youuuu I’ll be back ❤️
Awesome place. Wonderful testimonies from students. It’s an amazing training academy
I would 100% recommend Theta to anyone! Mel is fantastic at what she does she has some much knowledge and experience! I’ve come away feeling like I’ve learnt so much not just how to fit them but much more background on the hair, different methods, and much more! I can’t wait to return and learn many more methods! I’ve found a new love to add to my hairdressing career thanks so much Mel!x More...
I work with Mel at THETA and it’s been the best experience so far. No two days are the same. Every day is different at THETA and you can learn so much about the company by talking to Mel. Mel is an amazing manager
I trained with Mel earlier this year after training elsewhere and not feeling satisfied with their work. Mel was professional yet approachable and we ended my training day with a hug - special. Mel has given me, and continues to provide, ongoing support in all areas whether it be client queries, advertising or even photography. This lady knows her stuff and you will not be disappointed if you choose to train with THETA ❤️ More...
Amazing place. Mel is as professional as they come, and has a lot of offer on a personal level, she genuinely wants the best for those that cross her path. Cannot recommend enough
The reviews speak for themselves, a professional, welcoming, fun environment is created by Mel and her colleagues. Would 100% recommend to anyone I meet! Thank you
Thinking of hair extensions? Try this place first. The passion and commitment they put into making your hair look good in the most healthiest of ways is unrivalled. You won't regret it. Highly recommended!!! More...

I visited Theta for som training in regards to the Nano taped and micro loop extensions Being a technician in hair extensions now for 15 years and I found the training really useful and really well presented lots of information and very professional x
I will recommend The Hair Extension Training Academy to anyone and everyone. Outstanding training - very detailed information, excellant delivery and content. I loved Mel's energy and passion and knowledge about the hair industry, which came across in her delivery of the course throughout the training days. I wanted to be trained in one method because I didn't realise there was so many different hair techniques or methods and I ended up learning 3 methods. Mel knows her stuff when it comes to hair knowledge, you won't be disappointed - Highly recommended. More...

I started at Theta as a student in 2014 learning the 3 entry levels techniques, the training was fantastic and as such I returned on a regular basis learning new methods and up skilling to offer more to the clients in my salon. The training with Mel and her knowledge and passion for all things hair extension rubbed off on me so I quickly enrolled onto the Theta teacher programme. This now complete I can not recommend this course enough. The support from Mel and everyone involved in the academy has been astounding. The variation in practical content to make sure your equipped for every training scenario has been invaluable. Throughout the course with the continued support from Mel my confidence has grown and I have not only learnt huge amounts in knowledge but also about myself and my capabilities. Working at Theta is not only rewarding but no two days are the same and every single one is fun. Educating, supporting and empowering individuals to make a career, business and better life for themselves is an amazing job. Thank you Theta and thank you Mel. I love my job!!! Xx More...
Just finished my nano, micro and hot fusion bond with Mel and Sarah. Absolutely awesome day, the tutors themselves were more than helpful and I can't recommend them both enough. If there's anything these girls don't know about hair and extensions; it's not worth knowing. The length of the course was perfect and the techniques were taught wonderfully. They've made me feel confident to start up my own business and now I can add 3 techniques to my services. Thank you again ladies �� More...
Have done on site 121 training today with Mel. Wow! She is a genius - I learnt so much - a true professional. Can not wait to get working on more live models to perfect my technique. Did believe would feel as confident as I do I all 3 techniques More...
