Some of the best cornrows hairstyles are also called African braid styles because many of them are done from a skilled individual from Africa who owns a shop here in the United States.
It can be a bit of a stereotype though.
Years ago this was a heavy conversation but going past the year of 2010 many African American women have opened shops and can braid hair very well. Most of them specializing in intricate designs. Some of the women can catch hair as short as 1-inch and that’s CRAZY good.
Being a braiding expert will NOT keep you competitive in today’s market though. You have to be educated on healthy hair care as well. Just styling hair for clients is rapidly fading out. Women want healthier hair, so if you are a hair braider we urge you to educate yourself or you WILL lose business.
