I agree that you should do both! You can always do hair on the side,, but just in case you have a drag in clientele or something you'll always have the paralegal studies/experience in your corner as well. I believe you have to chase what you're passionate about even if it can't be your primary focus. I also agree that you can hire an assisstant to braid,,but you'll miss a bit of $$. Practice makes perfect,,you'll get it eventually.

Watch people braid carefully and try to emulate what they do...slowly. Even if you feel like you're doing the wrong thing. Cornrowing is basically like doing a single plait and adding more hair to it at each turn. I'm usually a fast learner but when it came to learning to cornrow, boy did I feel in over my head. I kept trying on peoples heads and did rubbish. People refused me to even touch their heads at one point! So I started practising on my own head. I could never do it. I would try once in a while and fail then one day I just did it right. Don't remember how.

You didnt have hood friends growing up OP??? I feel there was always a hood friend that knew and taught all the girls everything while growing up. I'm remembering the days she use to make us practice on eachother and our moms will beat our arses becos the style we ended up with wasnt what we left the house with.
OP practice practice practice.

Having a " hood" friend, or just a friend has nothing to do with braiding. Some people just get it, some people don't. Then there's those that just takes them a while to. I don't know how to braid and there has always been someone around me growing up who knew how to braid. I wasn't into that sort of thing when I was younger, wish I would've. I think if I actually set some time aside and try I could get it. Op I think you should do what ever makes you happy. I think you should listen to some of these ladies on here and probably try watching YouTube vids, and buying a mannequin would be an excellent idea. Good luck

Just believe and practice.  Hairgirl203 is a stylist now and she has only been braiding for maybe a couple of years or a year.  Not sure... buy a mannequin and practice.  You'll get it in no time.


Yes I've seen that a lot they have one awesome braider who does all the braids at one natural hair salon i've gone to
