A San Francisco expert extensionist perfects the art of teaching stylists by creating Monti Extension Academy. 

Deb Monti, 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, Mane Addicts 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 share all her coveted secrets about extensions and why it's important to be educated in the details. 

 Her home is San Francisco but she travels far & wide to certify stylists in the #MontiMethod

Quote: “I was seeing so many women with extensions that were applied wrong with low-quality hair. Or extensions that were painful and causing damage. The extension industry was getting such a bad reputation and 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.”

About Monti Extension Academy

Monti Extension Academy is focused on teaching you the correct way to apply extensions so you can increase your clientele and income. The personalized teaching you’ll get with Deb and her team is unlike any other Hair Extension Training and Certification because the classes are small. Your training with Deb is from the heart; that is why are only 4 other stylists along with you. In a smaller, more intimate class setting you can be sure you'll get the personalized training you need. Deb and her team are so passionate about teaching damage-free extensions, and they will share with you all the coveted tips and tricks that can only be taught by someone that has actual real-life experiences behind the chair doing extensions day after day.

Our training videos go into extensive detail in Theory and Installation. They allow you to learn at your own pace while following along with a detailed workbook.

All education courses come with a starter kit filled with tools, hair, scripts, workbooks and love.

Deb, and her team have gone through great measures to extensively research and curate Monti's own brand of superior hair extensions, which are available to licensed stylists to assure that their superior quality extensions are applied with only the highest quality service.
