About Sophie N.

I'm a self taught professional master braider. At the age of 6 I remember creating my first braid on my baby doll. I can do all kinds of braids from Knotless Braids, Feed-In Braids to Freestyle Braids. I've Styled hair for all kinds of people from Celebrities to athletes and so much more. I've also worked side by side with some great people who taught me a lot along the way.

Now I'm taking my skills that I've learned along the way and passing it down to those that are willing to learn how to braid. I discovered how to teach each individual how to understand their braiding fingers in order to understand the concept of braiding.

Braiding is an amazing art. It can be taught and mastered if you have the passion for it and if you put your mind to it.

Omg this was the best. I was so skeptical about how you can learn to braid online but Sophie literally watched how I was braiding and taught based off how I was comfortable. She made adjustments to my technique and now with a little more practice I feel way more confident and ready to try more styles!

Sophie is spectacular! Any questions I had she answered politely and in detail. I learned just what I need and now my knotless braids are neat and flawless! For any additional training that I may desire in the future, I will not hesitate to book another session with her. I'm sooo happy I got to meet her! It was online so someday I hope to meet her in person. Either way, I'm on a new level now because of her.
Thanks again Sophie if you ever read this!

Sophie is an excellent teacher. She’s so patient and willing to stop and start over until you are comfortable. Her delivery to detail when teaching is impeccable. I learned new techniques like stitch braids, feed in’s and knotless easily with her direction. I started to make money MY VERY FIRST WEEK after taking Sophie’s braiding class. Invest in yourself and take her class you won’t regret it, i didn’t 🤗
