Not too long ago, I was in a lot of debt. I had paid for my own hairstylist training and even refinanced my home to pay for my salon. I was working hard and trying to invest everything I could into my business to make sure it would survive. I’ll be honest with you — I was scared. I was selling my clothes in my salon to help make the rent.

When I heard about a hair extensions training course near me, it felt like just the right opportunity to learn a really profitable service. I didn’t have the money right then, so I had to ask my mom to put the training on her credit card. My mom has always been super supportive of me, but when she said yes, I realized just how much she believed in me.

Now, I teach hair extensions training myself. Since that first training, I’ve done countless extension installs and worked my way out of debt. I founded Harper Ellis Hair Co. and teach the Harper Ellis Method across the country and online. I paid my mom back . . . and then some.

I used hair extensions to get out of debt and create even more opportunities for myself, my family, and my business. If I hadn’t taken that chance and invested in myself and my education, I would not be where I am today. My only regret is that I didn’t invest in education SOONER!



I see so many stylists who are on the fence about investing in education and training. Our mission with Harper Ellis Hair Co. is to help hairstylists feel empowered, educated, and able to create their dream lives. That empowerment begins with taking the leap and investing in YOU. We believe that you’re worth it — do you?

Learning how to make your hair extensions services profitable and scalable is something I talk about in-depth at our Academy both in-person and online. If you want to become a part of the hair extensions industry, sign up today! You’ll be wondering why you didn’t invest in yourself sooner.


Cheers to success,

Terra Harvell, CEO + Founder
