This 300-hour course teaches students how to care for natural hair without using perms, relaxers, or other chemicals, or hair color. The course includes styling techniques such as braiding, twisting, wrapping, extending, and locking natural hair. It also covers infection control, bacteriology, client consultation, business management, professional ethics, and more.
