Registration Transfers and Refunds

Online training registrations cannot be transferred to another individual.  All online training registrations are non-refundable. Refunds will not be provided for registrants who do not complete their class; cancel their registration; are ejected from their class; or do not have the internet service, computer, and/or speakers that are needed to complete the training (see below for equipment and internet service requirements). Any coupon codes must be entered at the time of course purchase and cannot be applied after you have already registered for a course.

Equipment and Internet Service Required

The systems requirements for our online classes are very modest, and the vast majority of computers, phones, tablets, and internet services should be compatible.  Our online classes require a reliable computer, phone, or tablet with reliable high-speed internet access. These days, almost all internet services are fast enough for these classes. DSL internet through your phone line and cable internet services should be fast enough. Your computer, phone, or tablet will also need speakers OR a port where you can plug in headphones so you can hear the audio that goes along with the videos.  We also recommend that you have a printer if you would like to print out your certificate of completion or print a copy of the course notes. If you do not have a printer, you can download a digital copy of your certificate and the course notes to your device.  HairDirections does not supply you with paper copies of certificates or course notes.  You do not have to use the same computer, phone, or tablet to finish your entire class.  You can use any device and switch between devices as long as they meet the requirements listed on this page.  If you have questions about your connection speed, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and they should be able to tell you your minimum connection speed.  The minimum system requirements are listed below.  Unless you have a very old computer, your computer should easily meet these requirements.
