Class Information

THE INSTITUTE OF ANCESTRAL BRAIDING IS NOW THE FIRST AND ONLY BRAIDING SCHOOL IN TEXAS TO OFFER NATURAL HAIR CARE TRAINING AND LOC TIGHTENING CERTIFICATION!

Our classes are personally taught by the Master and pioneer braider- Isis! The art of ancestral braiding is steeped with tradition and culture. Practitioners of this art possess specialized knowledge in the care and maintenance of natural hair. 

It is doubtful that traditional licensing agencies can effectively disseminate the spirit and technique of ancestral braiding due to their emphasis on altering the state of natural hair via chemical processes.

Isis has founded a curriculum that will thoroughly teach you all of the intricate details of establishing reputability with clients, setting up consultations, performing hair analysis, and basic techniques of braiding , twisting, and locking with and without extensions.
