Learn why Monti Methods are the safest, most versatile extension techniques in the industry. Tight tension, over-direction and unequal weight are giving the extension industry a bad hair day. With so many classes out there, it's hard to know what to invest in. Do your research when choosing education. Monti educators are successful stylists with behind-the-chair, real-life extension experience. LEARN MORE
Monti Extensions & Academy was established in San Francisco in 2016 by award-winning extensionist & salon owner Deb Monti. After seeing too many women with improper extension applications, Monti knew it was time to share her coveted methods and techniques.
Learn with Deb and her team in our Academy- designed for classes or practice with the assistance of Monti's talented educators.
I-Tips are one of the most versatile methods in the extension world and a favorite of Monti Extensionists.
They can be worn up to 12 weeks, they have 1 : 1 equal weight ratio, they are safe for fine hair, there is full rotation of each individual extension, you can use any products, you can run your fingers completely through your hair from scalp to ends, there is no heat, glue or solvents used to attach or remove them and they are lightweight and comfortable.
Tape-In extensions are one of the quickest extension methods around which makes them one of the most popular.
Just a few "sandwiches" give tons of volume. They can be worn up to 6-8 weeks and are reusable many times. A great choice for gals with thick hair. But, don't worry- Monti Extensions offers a single sided method for those with fine hair, but prefer a Tape-In installation. It's all about equal weight.
HAND-TIED and MACHINE WEFTS
Wefts are one of the trendiest methods right now because of how undetectable they can be
. At Monti Extensions, we preach no tight tension, no over-direction and equal weight, so we modified the application method to give your clients a comfortable, damage-free installation. Monti's Waterfall Beaded Weft method creates a stronger foundation and better support than other weft methods.

Monti I-Tips are ethically sourced from 100% Indian Remy hair with cuticles intact.
Our individual extensions come in 2 sizes and are engineered with a shielded, reusable tip that will not crack or shed. Tips revert back into a cylinder when heat is applied allowing for easy reinstallation, which sets us apart from the competition and makes them a better investment for you and your clients.
There are 3 things to consider when choosing Tape extensions: the hair, the tab and the tape.
Hair: Monti Tape-In's are ethically sourced Indian Remy hair.
Tabs: Our tabs are created to be flexible yet sturdy so they don't fall apart when old tape is pulled off for reinstallation.
Tape: Our tape is secure, not sticky, and removal is clean! A real time-saver!
Rarely do we meet a stylist who has but one trick up their sleeve. Usually there’s a tint brush, an arsenal of brushes and a scissor collection in their repertoire, but Deb Monti has one thing on her mind- extensions.
As a salon owner, Monti has seen her share of botched extensions over the years that are not only ruining women’s hair, but the extension industry itself. In the extension world, she was ahead of her time. Fast forward to the here and now, and you will see almost every salon doing extensions, but the education isn’t catching up to the demand. “I just got really tired of seeing so many women with extensions that were applied wrong with low-quality hair. Women were coming to me with painful extensions that were causing damage and the extension industry was getting such a bad reputation- I felt I needed to do something, so I created Monti Extensions & Academy, an intensive education program for stylists and a superior line of extensions for clients.”
Deb, co-owner of Milvali Salon - with locations in both San Francisco and Mill Valley - is an award-winning extensionist whose salons have been top rated by Allure, Racked SF, Short Cuts and San Francisco Magazine, and ranks "Best Hair Extensions" year after year in the San Francisco Chronicle's A-List. While running a successful business, training stylists and working behind the chair as a reputable extensionist for the past decade, Deb will finally share all of her coveted secrets about extensions and why it's important to be thoroughly educated.
Her home is San Francisco but she travels far & wide to certify stylists in the #MontiMethod
