What do you have in common with Rachel McAdams, Jessica Alba, and Katy Perry? Your hair can be braided to look just like theirs! From straight to curly hair, there’s a braid for every person and every occasion – for running to the shops to walking down the red carpet.
Learn how to do complicated braids you’d never thought you’d be able to manage, and leave with a brand-new hairstyle that will wow your friends.
From the fishtail to the waterfall, the French braid to the Dutch braid, you’ll learn myriad ways to plait your hair. Braid around your head, upside down, just the top – go wild! Even curlies can rock the braid action
But first, we’ll take a look at braids through history, and see how celebrities showcase them on the red carpet. We’ll touch on a few inspirational websites for braiding tutorials – and you’ll see how to do some braids on models.
Then we’ll start off practising on one another. Make sure you have plans after class so you can show off your spectacular braided hair.
Like many young girls, Theresa Winters owned Barbie dolls – on which she taught herself how to French braid. With the resurgence in braided styles, she’s once more become intrigued with all sorts of hairdos, and is thrilled that her degree in Classical Civilization is coming in use: those Ancient Greeks and Romans sure enjoyed a good braid or two.
An American transplant to the Antipodes, Theresa co-founded The Plus Ones, a website dedicated to telling people about events. She also manages to win quite a few competitions (join the Facebook group WinWinWinters for more). Find out more about her braiding workshops or book her for a private session on Braidiance.com.
