Why is understanding the basic elements of design so important to my success as a braider?

The answer is as simple as cooking! If you've ever created a masterpiece in the kitchen or even observed a great cook like your mother or grandmother in action, you know that it takes a great deal more than just knowing what the ingredients are. You must know exactly what quantity of each ingredient is needed. You must know at exactly what point each ingredient is added. You need to know things like cooking temperatures and how to use special kitchen tools such as knives or wire whisks. The exact same principles apply in hairstyling. You must attain a thorough knowledge of all the tools and implements required in creating a great design. In addition, you must know the principles of design and also understand how the client's face shape and features impact the chosen design. Once you have gained a solid working knowledge of all these parts, pieces, and principles, you will be able to provide quality services to each and every client.

Don't believe us? Here's what our customers have to say.

This was my first time taking a braiding class, honestly it’s a lot YouTube teaches you, but it’s nothing compared to the class. A few things that stood out were how patient the instructor was, how hands on and very detailed the lesson was and much more! This helped me in many ways due to the fact that I am left handed, I struggle with a lot of detailed work. Spots filled so fast I am thankful to have been able to attend the class. Definitely recommended.


I took my first braiding class with that's her beauty & Briona was on time very professional and took her time with answering everyone questions and demonstrating. The class was 4 hours and it was filled with so much information.


Briona is VERY professional. I recently attended her braiding class and I gained so much knowledge of hair and braiding techniques. I came in the class without any knowledge of braiding and I left the class VERY confident in 3-4 techniques. Her work is also very clean and crisp; one of the best braiders I’ve encountered personally. I would definitely recommend her and can’t wait to start my journey with braids.
