HairDirections Has Closed

HairDirections has closed and no longer offers CE classes. We would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the thousands of loyal customers who have been with us since the beginning! Your encouragement and kind words over the years fueled our passion for creating quality education. This was a very difficult decision for us, especially after having an extraordinarily successful 2021 where we saw significant growth. However, after being involved in Cosmetology education for more than 25 years we are ready to move on to a new chapter.

Per the course registration rules, all classes expired on January 1, 2022. If you completed a class before this date and would like to download or print a copy of your certificate, please scroll down this page and follow the instructions below for PRINTING YOUR CERTIFICATE.

What a ride it has been! Our early days holding live educational events really helped us to craft our style; blending visuals, humor, and practical information to create a useful and entertaining educational experience. We then applied all that we had learned from offering live events to venture into the online education market. HairDirections is proud to have been one of the first companies to offer online video Cosmetology CE Classes, and to help set a new standard of excellence for distance education in the industry. Your response and support of this new way of providing Cosmetology CE let us know that we were on to something! In the end, the most rewarding aspect of all of our hard work is hearing the stories of how our classes have helped people elevate their life and career to a new level.

When we founded HairDirections we couldn’t have imagined the places it was going to take us. We are truly thankful to our wonderful customers, and to those that have helped and encouraged us along the way! We wish you the best of luck in your career.
