Courtesy of Preston Phillips. Summary and Review Natural hairstyling which uses no chemicals or dyes, and does not alter

the natural curl or coil pattern of the hair, has become popular with people of all ethnicities who can appreciate the beauty and versatility of their natural hair texture. Braiding the hair is an art form and it can take many hours to complete but these complex styles; with proper care, they can last up to three months, with six to eight weeks being preferable. The investment in time and money is high for both the client and stylist. After you spend hours braiding a clients hair, the last thing you want is to have the client reject it and demand that all the braids be re-moved.

All professional cosmetologists should be prepared to work with every type of hair texture and hairstyle trend. Working with braid extensions exposes cosmetologists to the fundamental techniques of adding hair extensions, which is another lucrative service for the stylist and the salon.
