Braid Apprentice Program

The Braid Apprentice Program is a two-year program that allows an individual to harness their braiding and loc'ing technique, as well as build a steady clientele under the guidance of the master loctician/braider. There is one year of full guidance where you will learn an array of business acumen, such as scheduling, marketing, structure, self-discipline. In this first year, the apprentice will be able to take walk-ins and assist the master/braider loctician. The second year will entail full-independence in scheduling appointments. At the completion of two years the apprentice will then graduate and be released to work independently in their own suite, shop, or wherever they so choose. 

This program starts out as a part-time position of 20 hours per week and will develop into a full-time career. 

In order to qualify for this program, you must adhere to the following:

  • Must be able to braid with hair added

  • Must be personable and professional

  • Can be the age of at least 16 years old

  • Must have reliable transportation
