Hair Braiding

Hair Braiding Course - Hair Braiding


As a hair braider you’ll twist and shape your clients’ hair into precise and often elaborate styles. You’ll use smoothing agents and other products, as well as heat, water, and sometimes hair extensions to create cornrows, dreadlocks, box braids, feed-in ponytail braids, natural braided updos, French braids, and Fulani braids—to name a few. Some of your work will last only a few days, but in many cases you’ll create braids that your clients will wear for weeks or months.
