HAIR BRAIDING TRAINING CASE STUDIES

LAURAYNE – LAURY’S HAIR & BEAUTY SALON – ILFORD – LONDON

For years Laurayne worked in the Social Care industry.  She was tired and bored of working for other people and wanted to start her own business.  She however had a passion for hair and had no idea where to start from.  Her immediate purpose was “to learn different techniques in hair styles, to be professional and to introduce new styles”. She had taken a vacation from work and wanted to complete a short course that she could finish before her vacation was over.   She confided in me “I simply do not want to go back to work”. But she also did not want to go to a college and take at least 2 years to complete a Hairdressing Course.

She searched for natural hair training on the internet and found World of Braiding’s Training and decided this was what she wanted.  She came to us in 2009 and had a consultation with us where we explained all the various options in our skills Training Courses and the routes available for her to take after the training.

She chose the Foundation to Braiding Course and completed it in 10 weeks.  She said to me  I will give my training the best effort possible as I have a dream and have no intensions of going back to work. I will start my business immediately I finish my course.” True to her words, after completing her qualification, she worked with an amazing Estate Agent from the Internet who found her a perfect position on the High Street in Ilford, London.  She went straight on to start her Natural Hair and Extensions Salon. This is her testimonial in her own words “When I first came I was so excited about the trainings and worried to get better and professional.  Now that I finished I am so happy and content with what I learned, I feel confident about hair and can start my own business. Joy is a wonderful person, very sociable and patient. I am very happy that I met someone like her and definitely will be missing her, but I will stay in touch.”

Since then she has not looked back.  Today she is constantly busy with unlimited flow of clients and has now added other skills like Beauty treatment to her knowledge.  She is currently taking another course in Beauty etc.  This is one example of what you could achieve in a short period.

RITA – RITA’S HAIR & BEAUTY – PORTSMOUTH

When I met Rita in December 2006 she was already in the business of selling Hair Extensions.  She and her husband John had started a small shop of 8 months old on a High Street in Portsmouth where they were servicing customers who needed hair extensions.  The customers will buy the extensions and take it elsewhere to get their hair done.  She had one stylist who decided when to attend to clients and when not to.  This stylist was in charge of Rita’s shop.  She enjoyed the fact that Rita had no skill and was capitalising on her ignorance.  When Rita hinted the stylist that she needed training to gain skill for the business, the stylist was completely against the idea.  She told Rita that no one will ever be able to train her to braid hair.  She believed it was a natural skill that you were born with and could never be taught or learnt.

John thought about this and decided it was enough of helping other people make money so he searched the internet and found World of Braiding training courses in natural hair styles.  John made the first call to us.  Rita came 2 days later for a one day Course on strand-by-strand extensions using the Glue gun.  When Rita joined the Course, her immediate dream was to gain more knowledge on hair extensions and the skill with the aim to grow her business.  Rita was very hands-on and had no interest in writing notes even when I explained to her that she needed the information to assist her learning.  She explained to me that she did not like taking notes and her brain served her better than paper notes.   Before registering on the course, she had been brave and had booked a client to get her hair done on the Saturday while she came for training on Thursday. She promised me she will practice non-stop on Friday. The outcome of the hair service was excellent and Rita could not believe the skill she had locked away in her hands for so long.

Two weeks after the training Rita and John could see the big difference in the income they were getting in the shop.  Rita had recovered the cost of taking the course from her very first client she booked on the Saturday and thereafter was simply making a profit.  Their intake had gone from about £500 a week to £2000 a week in the same shop.  Since then she has not looked back anymore.  She later came back to World of Braiding to take up another Course in Introduction to Hair Braiding.

Rita now owns a huge shop in Portsmouth on two floors selling extensions, products and adding the skill of natural hair and extensions.  She is desperately seeking stylist and is always asking for newly trained students who are happy to live in Portsmouth.  Due to her amazing presence on the High Street in Portsmouth, Rita has been spotted and sponsored by various international products and extensions companies from the USA and other countries who want their brands to be showcased in her shop.  She is constantly offered short training courses on these products and extensions.

Rita has now enrolled on a Hairdressing Course to further her knowledge on how to work with chemicals and service more clients.

You could be like her success story.

MAGDA – FREELANCER – POLISH

Magda came to us in 2009 with her husband.  She had no idea what hair braiding was but loved to look at the intricate styles in natural afro hairstyles. She had amazing fingers that could pick up skills easily she explained to me as she confided that she had taken lessons in musical instruments as well.  She had amazing passion for hair and wanted to use this skill on a freelance basis so as to free up time to be with her 6 year old son who needed her attention after school.  After our consultation, we agreed on a Foundation Course to give her at least 10 different techniques in Braids, Weaves and Extensions to help her have various choices while working with clients.

She was nicely surprised to find that she was the only one in class most of the time as we work with individuals as well as workshops.  She gave the training 110% as Magda still remains one of my favourite students.  She was creative, tried different styles whenever she completed a technique, practiced her styles on her husband and son and was overwhelmed with the knowledge she gained.

Her testimonial – “this course is one of my best experiences in life.  I still need more confidence to use my skills and start working from home, but even after the course I am always getting support from Joy and encouragement when I need it.  You can study for years and learn nothing, but when you have a master (like Joy) you will get where you really want.  It was brilliant!”

When she completed her training, her immediate worry was where to start practicing her knowledge so as to perfect her skill and gain life experiences.   We sorted this easily.  I contacted another student of mine – Vicky – who had set up a salon in the city where Magda was based – Hemel Hempstead and we agreed that Magda could come in and help out on Saturdays.  This helped a lot as she told me amazing experiences that she encountered.  She explained to me that the hair on the training head was a lot more difficult to work with compared to the afro hair on her clients.  She also experienced that when clients noticed that she was not black, they were usually a bit sceptical about allowing her on their hair until they see her work.  She also advised some of her colleagues on how to work with Caucasian hair as I had taught her in class.  What an experience she had.

Magda to this day produced one of the best portfolios I have ever seen which I still show to other students who come to make enquiries.

You could be like her.

VICKY – SALON OWNER (BRAIDS’N’ WEAVES) – HEMEL HEMPSTEAD

Vicky came to us in 2008. Vicky like other students was unique.  She was an immigration lawyer and had taken on the reality that the economy was changing.  Immigration issues in the UK had taken a different turn and she was not prepared to wait until her business crashed.  She had a passion for hair and knew she will be better off getting ready and prepared in this industry. But the issue was where to start from.  She went on to the internet and searched for training in natural hair.  She was also not prepared to spend years getting a new skill.  We needed to get her started on a Course that will give her a lot of skill to enable her start her salon.

She chose the Foundation to Hair Braiding Course.  Since then Vicky had finished her Course and set up her salon.  In addition to natural hairstyles, she added another short course in working with chemical relaxers so as to give her more grounded approach to servicing her clients.

Vicky has also sent her 16 year old daughter and her cousin for training in Introduction to Braiding Course so they could help her in the salon.

Her testimonialtaking on the training is one of the best decisions I had to take.  Joy worked with me to ease me into an industry that I was not sure where to start from.  I will recommend this training to anyone who knows what they want in their lives.  Do not wait for things to overtake you before deciding what you want in life.”

Vicky’s salon is doing great and she is a great resource for students who need practical experience from World of Braiding and live close to her location.

Vicky gauged the economic situation and did not want to be held back by the changes in the industry she was serving at the time.  Now she is happy she took the plunge at the time.

You could learn from her experience.

FRANCESCA DE MORI  – OWNER FREEDOM BRAIDING COUTOUR – AUSTRALIA


Francesca came to us in August 2010.  She is still one of our star pupil as she was only 18 years old when she started with us and celebrated her 19th birthday with us.  Francesca was an established name on YouTube with a huge followership.  The amazing thing with her was that she was self-taught in all the different styles she was uploading on YouTube.  She found me on Facebook.   A great thing about Francesca is she is very inquisitive and is constantly on the lookout for the latest information or knowledge.  She will search the world for whatever she wants and go the long mile to get it.  This is a quality she has which I can relate to easily as I am like this in various ways.

We had months of consultation by emails, inbox etc from various sources – Facebook, YouTube etc.  We concluded on what she will need.  She wanted every knowledge she could gain as in her own words “I want to be the best in natural hair in the whole world”. We chose the International Braiding Course.  This course gave her over 22 techniques but based on her hunger for knowledge, I gave her more than was planned and made it 28 techniques.

Francesca took on her training in her true Leo star sign style – she was bubbly, worked late, asked questions, sought information constantly etc etc.  There was no dull moment with her.  In the end, she excelled in every technique including the Theory workshop where she finished 2 notebooks.  While in training, she was keeping her fans and clients up to date with her progress by constantly uploading pictures of her work.

She was like a sponge and soaked every information she was given.  First thing she did when she got back home was to change the name of her business.  Then she embarked on the photo-shoot I had advised her to do.  This changed everything for her as she had presented to the world her professional side and that she knew what she was doing.  She uploaded her new styles that she had learnt on her YouTube and Facebook pages.  She started getting new bookings.  Her testimonial “I could never have done it without World of Braiding”. Her testimonial is numerous.  See her YouTube video on our channel.

She constantly video her work and her clients, she updates her YouTube account all the time and gives her followers up to date information on everything she does.  They find the work great and call to book for their hair to be done in same style. Her followership has skyrocked on YouTube and Facebook, she now writes for a national magazine in Australia, gets celebrity stylist contacting her, attends meetings and events that concern natural hair styling and there is no stopping her.  We did a Press Release on her progress recently where she confirmed how she is in such high demand and gets over 3 weave clients in a day giving her more demands than she can handle.  She is always seeking experienced and trained students from World of Braiding to help her out.   Coming over to get training changed her view on the skill she had started without direction.  Now she is an expert in her own field and is coming up with her brand of hair extensions.

My experience with Francesca confirmed to me that it is not information and knowledge alone that makes the difference but what you do with it.  There were other people in her class who are yet to utilise their skill. She has used technology to change the way skills and beauty should be seen.

The sky is the limit for this young teenager who at this age has no holdback and fear in the form of children and family tying her down.

Watch this space as she will probably become a millionaire by the age of 30.

You can be like her or join her in Australia.

FELICIA OWUSUAA  – SALON OWNER  – NORWAY

For Felicia, getting training from us was her last attempt at getting a professional training in braiding and understanding her skill.  She had started her own salon and was already attending to customers with some braiding techniques but something was missing.  She realised she lacked professionalism.  Her clients will get her service and not come back again so she needed loyalty from them.  This made her feel insecure and not sure of what was not right.

Being Ghanaian she thought it will be best to go home and improve her skill after all braiding was an African skill.  She left her family and went back to Ghana for 4 months.  This was a long time to stay away from her young family but being determined and staying focused to achieve a great result she took on the challenge.

After 4 months, she came back without achieving the results she wanted and still felt empty as if something was missing.  She now went on the internet for more searches.

She found us in December 2007. I remember very well as this was during Christmas time and her young family was missing her again.  We consulted by phone and agreed on the Foundation course for her training.  We narrowed her training to techniques that she needed and focused to make her understanding clear and professional.

On completion of the Course, we went on to the unique part of our training – Theory to Braiding.  This part to our training is our best part yet.  This is the section of the training that Joy and World of Braiding has perfected and branded specially for her students and is the part that separates our students from experienced braiders who have been braiding in Africa.  The theory encompasses understanding of the industry, professionalism, and running the business of natural hair.  Everything that no one else will teach you is in this part of the training and is based on Joy’s personal journey into understanding the industry of natural hair.  This is the Education and Information part that brings everything together and makes complete sense to our students.  This is the part that differentiates World of Braiding from everyone else.

Felicia however thought  she did not need the theory and was ready to go home to her children.  She said she knew everything there was to know about extensions and products. We insisted to her that to gain her certificate, she needs this theory side of our training.  Luckily for Felicia there was another student in the class – Sheena Daniels who insisted that she needed the training so Felicia had no choice.  We took on our training and on completion, Felicia was in tears.  This was shocking and we wanted to know what had happened.  It transpired that her continuous search and numerous travels to gain knowledge was based on this information that she lacked.  She had not known that this was the part that she was lacking and needed understanding to make her professional and educated in order to satisfy and be confident with her clients.  She now knew why her clients were not coming back and being loyal. She now understood why she felt insecure and her clients were in control of her business. She instantly felt complete and realised that she now had a business to run and no longer a hobby.

Her testimonial “I am now very satisfied because now I have the knowledge that I needed to run my business.  I am happy for the information I got from Joy and all the training that she has given me.  Thank you so much”

On getting back, she sent lots of glowing report about how she had changed everything in her business and how she was now in control of her business.  Everything had changed and she was a very happy business woman.  She remains in touch and lets us know about her progress.

You could be like her and change your situation around.

THANDI SWARTBOOI – SALON OWNER – SOUTH AFRICA

Thandi is one of those dream students.  She was hungry for knowledge and was willing to invest in it without argument.  When Thandi came to us in 2009, she had a good knowledge of braiding and was attending to clients.  Somehow she felt something was lacking.  She needed to perfect her skill as she was going back home for good.  She had decided it was time to go home and set up a professional salon.  We had our consultation and concluded on Foundation to Braiding.  We took her skill to the next level and when she was done her current customers where so grateful that she had taken training to better her skill.

Prior to this stage she was like most braiders charging ridiculously cheap rates for her time.  After her training everything changed.  All her new clients had to pay her new rate while she confirmed to me that the old clients who had remained loyal will still get the best service from her at the same old rates they were paying.  She thanked me and could not believe that she had been so ignorant about the industry.  She was so happy when she started shopping for all the things she needed to get back to South Africa.

Her testimonial “Everything I needed to know and learn I have learnt.  I am satisfied with the way I’ve been taught and have achieved everything I wanted. The course was great; the teacher is very good and makes you feel you are in the right place.”

You too could be like her.

ROSE SISAN – FREELANCER – BRAZIL

Rose turned out to be a friend.  She like the rest of the students was hungry for knowledge and had a great passion for hair.  She had never braided before but knew this was something she wanted to do for a living.  By this time she was working in Social Care and was working mostly at night in a home.  She took on the Foundation Course in 2006 and embarked on gaining as many techniques as possible that was going to help her.

She had let everyone in her Brazilian community aware of her training because she wanted the market to be waiting when she was ready.  She stayed focused.  She gave her training all her energy as she practiced every night at work and while her clients were sleeping.  This was because her dream was to have enough time to be with her two lovely boys and eventually take her skill back to Brazil.

While in training, we attended various events together.  The great thing about Rose was that her hunger for knowledge and understanding encouraged her to be selfless and was always willing to help.  She joined me to every event I attended and assisted in every capacity. We became good friends.

On completion, she let everyone in her community know as well and the most exciting part was when a celebrity musician from her country visited England, she was asked to go and do her hair in the hotel.  She was so excited and could not wait to tell me the tales.  She was chauffer driven to the hotel and was given the star treatment.  She said the lady was so impressed with her work and they paid her amazing amount of money which almost covered the cost of her training.  This was the beginning of great things for her as this has now become part of her CV. She was now a Celebrity hairstylist she told me.  Since then everything had changed for Rose.

MORGAN HUDSON – HOUSEWIFE  – SOMERSET

Morgan came to me in 2008.  She had no idea what braiding was but had a mixed race child. There were no salons in her area that attended to mixed race hair so she chose to train herself to be in a position to cope with her child’s hair.  Her husband was black and never believed that she could be able to ever learn braiding.

We took on the Introduction to Braiding Course and she was very determined to surprise her husband.  She completed the training with the skill completely in her hands.  Her immediate testimonial “I really feel very confident to start braiding straight away and I am so pleased to have learnt a lot about products.  This course was such a fantastic experience for me.  Joy is a brilliant teacher and should be charging so much more.  I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in hair.”

She got back home and sent me glowing reports.  Her testimonial thank you so much Joy for letting me achieve 2 things in my training.  I gained my skill which I now use easily on my son but in addition, you have been able to help me wipe the smug off my husband’s face.” What a great result for someone who never imagined she could achieve the skill.

You could be that person.

SHEENA DANIELS – MOTHER – KENT

Sheena was just a Mum who wanted to be able to do her children’s hair.  Kent barely had Afro salons and she was tired of spending a lot of money on taking her children to the hairdressers.  She was also fed up with the long wait, the too many questions from her children, the cries, the general inconvenience of taking them to the salon and especially the Health & Safety issues.

In 2007 she came to us and we undertook the Introduction to Braiding Course.  All she wanted was just a simple course that will give her the skill to style her children’s hair and get them looking tidy for school.  While in the course she met with Felicia – earlier mentioned and became more interested in the business.  She wanted to know more and was willing to give the skill a lot more attention.  She got really good at creating her cornrows and single plaits and was very intrigued.  She then enjoyed braiding her training head which she had a habit of taking with her to everywhere.

Interestingly she went to a salon one day to buy some materials and while there a Mum walked in with her daughter who needed her hair braided.  The salon had no idea how to go about attending to the needs of the client and were thinking what to suggest.  Sheena promptly brought out her training head and asked the woman if she wanted a style like she had on the head.  The little girl was excited and Sheena was asked to braid the hair.  On completion, everyone was happy – Sheena had discovered the use she could put her newly acquired skill to while also working on her own children’s hair, the salon were excited as they could not wait to sign her on as a staff, the little girl and Mum were excited as their needs were met.

From then onwards, Sheena never looked back as she now came back to take on a Course in Hair Weaving and now became fully professional in natural hair designs. Her testimonial “Simply the best training ever.  Absolute value for money and now I am looking forward to a better life.”

You could be like her.

ALENA HORNICKA – FREELANCER – SLOVAKIA

Alena came to us in 2009.  She had travelled the world for a period and had decided to stop and do something she loved.  She had passion for hair, had never braided before but knew she could use her hands to achieve great results.   We chose the Introduction to Braiding Course as she did not want anything very complicated.

On completion of her course,  her testimonial “I am very happy with my training course, information, knowledge and skill of hair braiding.  I have gained a lot.  I had a wonderful teacher who is willing to teach, share and help others to start their own business in hair braiding. Thank you.”

On travelling back home to Slovakia, she sent amazing testimonials “Joy I got back home and as you had advised, I marketed my braiding skill to the Council and offered to do children’s hair for the Children’s day celebration.  They were excited and offered me the contract to braid over 1000 children on the day.  What do you advice?” This was amazing.  She had taken on the advice she was given.  At this stage I advised her to work with other braiders in the area but this was one of my favourite cases.

You too could be like her.

CELESTE WITHFIELD – SALON STYLIST – USA

Celeste came to us in 2010.  She loved braiding and had been doing this on her clients.  She was self-taught and was very curious about the skill of braiding.  She was married to a black man and this made her more curious about the skill of braiding.  She had researched about training all over the USA and no one offered her the type of knowledge she was seeking.  She found World of Braiding and contacted us.  She was detailed and knew what she wanted.  She was one of my favourite challenges. Luckily for her she had negotiated a training plan in her workplace and they had agreed to share her training cost.

We consulted and because she was coming from a long distance and had major interest in braiding, we agreed on International Braiding Course.  She loved her skill.  She concentrated and perfected every technique she was taught.   My best student in Ghana cornrow was Celeste.  She gave an amazing impression and I was very pleased with her training.

On completion, this is her testimonial “All areas of my training exceeded my expectations.  I feel so much more confident and well equipped than I did before.  It was an amazing training. I was given so much feedback and encouragement. It blew me away.  Joy teaches on such a PROFESSIONAL level and is extremely in-depth.”

What a glowing report.  She was good and since returning home, she had taken on a lot of projects including working in Los Angeles with the celebrities.

UJU OZUMBA – SALON STYLIST –  LONDON

Uju only just completed her training this year – 2011. She just missed one of our Weave workshops which was what she wanted.  She then contacted us and wanted to be part of the next course.

She has been working in the salon but believed her skill needed to be made more professional and taken to the next level.  She had a chat with her boss who completely disagreed with her. Explaining that she was okay and did not need any more improvement.  She was naturally very curious and knew that an investment in a good training will change the way she was offering her service to her clients.

We consulted and concluded the Weave Workshop was good for her.  Uju like most of my favourite students was hungry for knowledge.  It excites me to see students who have done some research, have a lot of questions and want answers.  Uju never stopped asking questions.  She wanted to understand every style and every reason why a style is created in a particular way.  She took on her training with one of the most amazing vigour I have ever seen.  We completed a full cornrow weave and she got home and replicated the same style on another training head the same night.  She came to class with the new head all completed and showed me what she had done in the night.  I was in awe of her.  She had sat up all night to understand what she had done the day before.  What a woman.

Uju has 6 children and is a single Mum but she has refused to let her personal circumstance stop her from excelling and achieving her dreams.  I absolutely respect her as in my many years of meeting many women who want to better their lives by gaining a skill that equips them to take control of themselves. However, Uju is different.  She comes across as one of the people who not only wishes but takes action to make the changes she requires in her life.  She did not only take on the Weave Workshop, she came back to perfect some of her braiding skills.  She saved money and paid weekly on some of the techniques.  She always came to the class with something new she saw in the shop as she loved sharing ideas and information with me.   She made me see the good in human existence again. She never asked for anything but knowledge to better her life and in return gave back so much.

On completion of her course, this is her testimonial “I achieved perfect closure for my weave.  This is the best investment I have ever made. I am so lucky to have had this opportunity.  My confidence has improved and Joy is an amazing trainer and lady.  God bless you.”

Since then on getting back to work, she has sent more testimonials I just want to say thank you sooooooooo much for all your help. The teachings were all on point and there was no reservation. i couldn’t have asked for more. You have given me the confidence to believe in myself and to know that i can do it on my own. You are an inspiration and a great teacher and doing the training was the best investment i have made. There is a great improvement in my work and i can now say am proud of my work, thanks to you. Thanks again for everything and keep up the good work. God bless you x.”

ALEX BROOKS – FREELANCE – WALES

Alex joined our training in 2007.  She was young and had a passion for hair.  She loved wearing braids but realised that there was no one doing braids in her local area.  This meant she had to pay a lot of money to get her own hair done. Alex saw the opportunity in this and decided to train so she could set up her own natural salon.

Her immediate worry however was the money to use in joining the Course.  She spoke with her job center who was more than happy to sponsor her training.  She took up the Introduction to Braiding Course and immediately picked up everything she was taught.

Her testimonial “everything was explained clearly and slowly which made it easy to pick up.  I found the experience very educational and would recommend this training to anyone.”

Alex now runs her own natural hair salon in Wales, starting from home she created a lovely website and gets orders from the net.  Breaking braiding to strands of single plaits, cornrows etc, highlights, lowlights etc.  She has been very happy she took up our training as she now has her own independence.

MOTHERS IN BRAIDING and INTERNET MARKETING FOR HAIR BUSINESS

20th November 2010

Internet Marketing for the Hair Beauty Business

Participants were introduced to the advantages of using the Internet to market their services.   Some of the major points noted were:

  1. 1. Showing the statistical growth of the Internet and how it has developed over the years.  The effect it currently has on business generally and the hair beauty business in particular was emphasised.
  2. 2. The need to explore the Internet for growth was discussed.
  3. 3. Using World of Braiding experience, Joy explained the various hurdles she has had to overcome in order to use the Internet for her business development and growth.  She gave advice on various ways to cut the hurdles in order to achieve great web sites using her experience.
  4. 4. Creating a great web site was not enough but adding value that clients will find useful was important in the hair and beauty business.  This went beyond showing amazing hairstyles and how to achieve them but also including on your websites what your clients should expect when they do come to your shop.  Noting some of the customer care service you offer, environment to expect, value of your service including effective consultation etc. Others included using a variety of various Internet media to stay in communication with the clients.

There were amazing discussions, experiences shared and inspirational talks.

Participants were grateful for the amount of detailed information and clear explanation of what to expect in the industry from the point of view of using the Internet.

Below are some of the participant’s comments.

Vicky – Salon Owner – Hemel Hemstead. “I am glad I sacrificed my day to attend this event.  I now know what to say to my web designer and how he can provide me with a web site aimed to attract more clients to my business. Joy teaches from experience and this makes learning down to reality. I will recommend this training to anyone who wants to grow in their business.”

Yeno – Beginner Student – London. “I cannot believe this training was free.  I would have paid any money to attend this training and gain the knowledge I have acquired.  I am about to start in my business and with the knowledge I now have, I will cut out any form of confusion when building my web site.  I am glad Joy is open minded about sharing her experiences.  Anyone who wants to grow  in their business should attend this workshop.  The knowledge to be gained is invaluable.”

MOTHERS IN BRAIDING WORKSHOP

Our young Mums were excited to gain as much knowledge as possible to be able to take control of their children’s hair. They were given information and skill in abundance among which were the following:

1 A clear understanding on how hair grows.

2 Foods that children need to eat to encourage their hair growth.

3 Things to avoid while working with children’s hair.

4 Products that are healthy for children’s hair.

5 Hairstyles that bring out the best looks of our young ones.

In addition to all the above and more, they got their hands deep into gaining the skill of some of the hairstyles – Single plaits, add extensions to single plaits, Cornrows, add extensions to cornrows

It was a day packed with information and skill and our lovely Mums were equal to the task. Some of their comments included:

“I never knew I had the skill of braiding in my hands.  I have always looked at anyone who can braid with amazement.  Now people will look at me with amazement.  To imagine I did this in one day is beyond words. Joy is an incredible teacher. Her patience is beyond explanation.” Phoebe – London.

“I will simply recommend this course to any Mum who wants to take control of their children’s hair.  The explanation on hair products, extensions types and equipment to work with has solved all the problems I have been dealing with working on my 5 year old daughter’s hair who always cried because I had no knowledge of what to do. To imagine I can call Joy anytime to ask more questions makes it even more interesting and satisfying.”

I have lost faith in hairdressers; they damaged my hair beyond repair when all I asked for was a perm”,

Hairdressers did not consider my feelings when they started slapping chemical relaxers into my hair.

I lost all my hair in addition to losing my confidence; now all I do is wear wigs!” “African hair braiders are the worst.  They are ignorant, have bad manners & attitude and are also uneducated. They are anti-virgin Afro kinky hair type as they insist you relax your hair before they can braid it. Their customer service is non-existent.”

”Hair braiders do not listen, they braid your hair too tight and this causes headache – sometimes the scalp bleeds, they do not give you new ideas, suggestions or information.” Etc etc

Testimonial from some of our Graduates: “The training was fantastic, informative and also an eye opener for growing my salon business. I had been to many places including 4 months in Ghana but nothing worked until I got my training with World of Braiding.  My client’s are now happy and my business has grown tremendously” Felicia(Salon owner – NorwayThe training gave me the opportunity to understand the business of hair and extensions.  I am now fully set up in my extensions business” Marie – Lace Front Wig & Extensions specialist – IrelandThe training was absolutely useful to my requirements.  I gained a lot of knowledge and now I work from home with a web site on the internet.  I feel fulfilled.” Alexandra – Braid & Cornrow specialist  – WalesI have never touched hair before joining the course.  After a Foundation course with World of Braiding, I was amazed at the skill in my hands.  Now I take my skill everywhere.” Magda –  PolandI decided to take a Foundations course to take up Hair Braiding business to my country South Africa. Now I have my skills which has changed my life” Thandi – South AfricanI was tired of traveling the world and decided to settle back home with a course that will pay me as well as release my creativity.  World of Braiding gave me that chance and now I am settled in my business at home.” Alena – SlovakiaI am a lawyer by profession but when the economic recession came in and my business was changing, I knew it was time to start a new career that will give me a skill.  World of Braiding helped me to make my vision clear and now I run my own salon.  ” Vicky – Hemel Hemstead (Salon Owner) ” I am an accountant by profession but I work with a private firm.  I noticed the economic changes and knew it was time to tap into the skill in my hands to add to what I know.  Now I have started working in a salon and I do this part time.  World of Braiding showed me the skill in my hands.” Loveness – Slough”I come from Salt Lake City in Utah in the USA and I came to England to learn detailed Braiding as it was the best full course I could find.  I took up the International Braiding Course and on completion; all aspects of the training exceeded my expectations.  I feel so well equipped and confident to take my skill to the next level.

I am very happy as I have achieved the skill I wanted to start my business.  The rest is now left to me” Laurayn  – Ilford – London

”I am a mother with 3 young girls.  It was getting quite difficult to take them to the salon every week to get their hair ready for school. My children hated going to the salon as well because they could not run around and had issues with the braider who always pulled their hair too tight and combed it too rough.  I had to gain experience in hair braiding to save myself this problem.  I took up the 3 days Introduction to Braiding workshop.  Now I braid my children’s hair, save myself money, have peace of mind as my children are at home and my husband is very happy with the savings we have made from spending on 3 children’s hair every week.” Sharon  – Devon
After completing Introduction to Braiding and a course in Extensions everything changed for me.  With the skill in my hands, I changed my small salon into a big shop in Portsmouth.  See the picture of my shop above. I combine skill and sale of hair extensions & products. This has changed my life as I am a different person and a lot better than I ever dreamed. I cannot begin to quote my weekly earnings.Rita.  PortsmouthTaking a braiding training is one of the best decisions and investments I made.  Since completing my training, now I run my own International business  shuttling between England and Barbados. I have my own team of mobile beauticians and making money is no longer my problem.Shannelle Gill – Ellen Extensions Hair & Beauty
