the refinery method 

"Refined work, relaxed luxury"

The Refinery Method was designed for both the stylist and the client in mind.  Our goal is to help take away the fear and help change the way artists look at hand-tied extensions.  

The creators, Christy and Nicole, have been specializing in hand-tied extensions for over 6 years.  After countless hours of education in various methods they realized that one size does not fit all.  Despite learning and offering different methods they were finding gaps within each method depending on their clients and their needs. The Refinery Method was created to help bridge those gaps and offer our guests another solution.  

Christy and Nicole wanted to share what they found with their fellow artists!

  They realized that every hair artist learns differently and that in-person, hands-on education is crucial when learning a new skill.  Add to that, small class sizes and opportunities for one on one education is also a must.  Catering to each artists learning style helps speed up the learning process!  


Education Opportunities 

We offer hands-on, in depth education, in a small group or one on one setting depending on your preference and learning style. In addition to our in person learning, we also have included a 30 day coaching program.  Each artist will have access to our coaches for a more personal and in-depth experience. 


 Our group class is a two-day hands-on class. Space is very limited in order to give each student the ultimate experience.    

One on One class is one day can be customized to the artist's needs and goals.
