About the Instructor

Beth has been perfecting her braiding skills for years. She started braiding her own hair when she was in track in high school after she was told that having her hair french braided would make her more aerodynamic and faster. After school she would go to her mom’s daycare and kids would see her braids and ask her to braid their hair. So she became known amongst the kids as the go to person if you wanted your hair braided. Now she’s a mom to 4 biracial daughters and knows the importance of protecting their hair. She braids their hair all the time to keep it healthy and because they’re fun! She’s been teaching people how to braid mixed hair (among other things) on her Youtube channel.
