PHASE 2: PRACTICE OF NATURAL HAIR STYLING

Through demonstration and practical work on mannequins, PHASE 2 covers State Board essentials and classic IOBTN techniques. Students demonstrate their knowledge of practical application and theory before transitioning into the salon environment. 

 

PHASE 3: APPLICATION OF NATURAL HAIR STYLING

Students continue to evolve their skills in hair care and styling. They take their skills into a salon environment supervised by a veteran licensed stylist to practice learned techniques on live models/clients.

According to TN State Board of Cosmetology, A Natural Hair Stylist is: a person who uses techniques which result in tension on hair strands such as twisting, wrapping, weaving, extending, locking or braiding of the hair by hand or mechanical appliances, which work does not include the application of dyes, reactive chemicals or other preparations to alter the color or straighten, curl or alter the structure of the hair. The techniques include providing or offering to the general public for compensation any of the following services solely for development or improvement of physical qualities of the natural hair structure: intertwining in a systematic motion to create patterns in a three-dimensional form; inversion or out-version flat against the scalp along the part of a straight or curved row; or extension with natural or synthetic fibers.

The Institute of Beauty offers a Natural Hair course under Tennessee's Apprenticeship Model. With an investment of $3000, this course  is designed to offer you the opportunity to earn hands-on experience within 15 weeks in both the classroom and the supervised salon environment.  In 300 hours our program prepares students with hands on training in Natural Hair Care, Braiding Techniques, Extensions, Natural Hair Care Products, and more.
