At Nurture Academy we teach how to master the techniques required for braiding and the elements it takes to achieve an intended style.
We have taught people to braid for many years, and it’s our experience in doing so that has helped us to package our courses/workshops to meet the needs of our learners.

We deliver this through:

Level 1:

This level is for individuals who have little or no experience with braiding hair. It introduces the learner to the fundamentals of the art. This consists of the methods, tools required, different techniques and an introduction to basic styles.

Level 2:

This level are for people who have passed Level 1 course above or already have a basic ability to braid hair.  Our intermediate course will be right for people who already have the ability to braid but want to develop their standard and achieve intricate styles.

Level 3:

This level has been carefully prepared for professional braiding stylists who already know the fundamentals of braiding and have perfected braiding techniques and styles.

This is the Business element of our courses; it is where the professional is put through business training in order to go on to work in a hairdressing establishment or run their own hair business. Trainees are put through a series of tuition focused around all aspects of running a business. This consists of customer care, pricing, legal requirements and much more.

Courses run all year round consecutively so that learners can go through all three levels if they wish.  We also run regular one-day workshops.

After these courses, learners will have accreditation which can go towards further hairdressing education, to begin their own businesses or simply harness a lifelong skill to develop, continue and pass on. Learning this skill can really save individuals a lot of money and can potentially make professionals a lot of money.
