State License Requirements
N/A

In Georgia, hair braiders are not required to meet cosmetology licensing requirements. The Board defines braiding, weaving, interlocking, and twisting as outside the scope of licensure in this field, so those who practice the art of hair braiding do not need to meet any licensing standards. Attending a training program can provide you with valuable hands-on practice and training.

Education Details

When you become a professional hair braider, you need to be ready to use lots of tools and equipment. As you start your training, you might learn a lot about different types of combs, thread used in braiding techniques, and various types of yarn. You may even learn about using hair extensions. Your hands are going to get lots of work during the course of your hair braiding program, since hands-on experience is one of the core parts of training. It's likely that you'll watch your instructor perform different types of braids, including single braids, cornrows, knots, and hair locking. After watching your instructor and getting a step-by-step tutorial, you can practice the braiding techniques on mannequin heads or on volunteer models. You can work with lots of different models; this helps you learn how to work with different hair types and textures. Knowing how to keep clients and your workplace safe and clean is a big part of being successful hair braider. Quite a few training programs in Georgia include intensive hygiene training. You may learn about scalp disorders, washing and disinfecting equipment, and sanitation.

Working as a Hair Braider

You can choose from a variety of employment opportunities when you enter the field of hair braiding.

Some braiders open small shops, while others work out of a special braiding room in their home. This route require you to obtain a business license and make sure that your workplace is sanitary and hygienic for braiding. You may also be able to work for a salon or spa. Salons may offer braiding services in areas where hair braiding is popular. Working as a hair braider often requires you to work a variety of hours. You need to be able to meet the needs of your clients, which may mean working evenings and weekends if your clients work during the day.

In this field, you can really help people feel beautiful and love their hair. If you're willing to learn more about braiding styles and communicate with your clients, you could build a significant customer base in Georgia.
