Meet CQ® Chrystal Hunter

My name is Chrystal Hunter and I am the creator of CQ® ACADEMY. In creating CQ® Academy, I vowed to change the way stylists were educated and bring something NEW to the industry. I developed a program focused on the stylist and setting them up for success.

As a CQ® Academy student, you will earn real “CERTIFICATIONS” using the original #CQ methods that have revolutionized the extension industry. You will understand the how, what, and why behind the method and be fully confident in correctly applying these skills behind the chair….Without ever having to travel anywhere.

CQ® Academy brings a hybrid of technology and one-on-one mentoring to your education experience. All CQ® Academy modules and training sessions are shot in high definition and broken down into different certification sections. You can pause, stop, rewind and work at your own pace and always have a front-row seat. This Mentor is DEDICATED TO YOU!

Finally, I am your personal coach that will answer every question and explain every detail. The social proof is everywhere!

"Chrystal is the TRUTH!! I purchased some bundles, a silk closure and had her installed the hair! I walked out feeling like the baddest woman on the planet! Put me in a room with Beyoncé, Kim kardashian, and Rihanna and I’m still going to feel like the baddest woman after Chrystal does her thing with my hair! She is the truth!! Recently just purchased her hair growth oil and my scalp is in LOVE!!! Definitely a life changer! Cannot wait for my next appointment and I haven’t even left her chair yet!!!"
