Braids and plaits are still really popular at the moment, particularly with school aged girls. Many can create wonderful styles on themselves that adults can only seem to dream of!
I encounter many parents who are struggling to learn how to create even the basic plaits on their daughters yet the demand on them to be able to achieve lots more is very high. While it is only hair styling we're talking about, it is certainly an area which upsets parents and has even been known to cause tears from feelings of inadequacy.
This is truly what makes the workshops I run so worthwhile for me. Seeing the utter joy of a parent finally nailing the french plait and then flying through all the other styles, filled with such new confidence and joy is wonderful. As I say to all my clients, it really is down to how you hold the hair and once you have mastered the french plait, all those other styles which seem impossible, suddenly become really achievable.
Once you've conquered the basics, there is a whole new world of hair styling ideas out there. It just takes a bit of imagination and a willing head to practice on.
So say goodbye to those hard-to-follow You Tube tutorials and come along to one of my Braided Belles workshops in Wadhurst or Southborough. I can also come to you for 1:1 lessons or to hold a private group lesson and I can visit your school or dance school for a group lesson.
