    I loved the Updo class! We learned 5 new hairstyles during the class and had time to practice with the help of the instructors. I plan to add 3 of the hairdo's to my regular routine. Very fun!

    The class was a lot of fun. The timing of everything was great. I loved the instructors -- they were helpful. I left feeling more confident about an updo I'd want to repeat and also got bonus make-up tips!

    I came into the class not knowing how to do a SINGLE THING to do with my hair, and left having mastered not one but two awesome updos. Teachers give good clear demonstrations and are super-patient, and there are tons of supplies and mirrors around so you can try it all out yourself. I really appreciated that they were willing to spend one-on-one time with you to help you figure out how to master each style. If I can learn this stuff, anyone can.

    This class was so fun! We learned four different updo/braid styles, then got to try them out ourselves. They have sparkling wine and refreshments for attendees, and all the teachers were so nice and helpful. I could barely do a ponytail before class, and now I can actually create a braided updo that doesn't look like a complete mess.

    I had a great experience at this event. the staff is very welcoming and went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. As the hairstylist was demonstrating the hairstyles, she was happy to answer questions and more then willing to repeat a step. After the demonstrations, we we're given one on one time with the hairstylist. I had very much enjoyed my experience with this salon and I highly recommend this class. I've signed up for their hair curling lesson and I can't wait!

    This was a really fun class, with plenty of time to try out some demonstrated braid styles with opportunity for one-on-one correction and advice. All the ladies at Goldplaited were super nice and helpful. I even got to try a fun bold lip color and try out their brow highlighter - which I purchased and LOVE! I feel like it makes my eyes look brighter and I look more put together every morning. I've even rocked a few braids this past week, as have the friends I brought to this class.

    This class was fun and insightful, though I probably wouldn't rate it a beginners' class. If you already know how to braid and french braid well, then this class is probably great for your skill level. I unfortunately didn't have enough of a base level of braid knowledge and skill to take much away from the class. In addition, most of the class is demonstration - there isn't a ton of hands-on learning.

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful Mal, Co and the rest of the staff at goldplaited are. I am hopeless when it comes to doing my hair for special occasions, but after the braided upstyles class not only was I able to recreate everything later at home, but I had several people ask if I had my hair professionally done! I would 12/10 recommend this class.

    This class was great! First, they offered the participants white wine upon entering, which was both unexpected and welcomed! There were only six people in my session with three teachers, so there was a lot of one on one help along the way. It was well-paced and differentiated; some people caught on faster than others, and the instructors were able to help everyone. They even stayed past the end time to teach people any braids they hadn't covered in class. They were all very kind and helpful. While most of the other participants knew each other, I went in alone. However, I never felt awkward or left out, in large part because of the instructors. I hope they offer an intermediate braiding course of some kind to keep going!

    I appreciated the "do on yourself" training. I can do lots styles on others, but this class focused on tips on how to do various braids on your own hair, which was great. I also liked the tips on how to do styles I normally do (side bun) in a new/ more interesting way. Good "101" class.

    This class was so fun and Mal and her team were so helpful. I went in with little confidence in my braiding abilities, but the instructors broke it down step-by-step. We had plenty of time to sip wine, practice on our own, follow along with the instructors, and work and with the teachers one-on-one. I left knowing how to do a Dutch braid, a fishtail braid and a French braid, plus two alternatives to ponytails. I look forward to being the envy of Instagram with my hip braids, and I look forward to more classes at goldplaited!

    Had a great time at the braiding class! We learned three different braids and then how to do something called festival hair (I think that's the name - it's where you use an elastic headband around your head and tuck the hair under). They had lots of staff on hand to make sure everyone unferstood how each style worked AND the staff was super friendly and patient for hair challenged folks like myself. I've been able to duplicate all of the braids outside of class and have been getting compliments! I would definitely take another class.

    Braids 101 was another fantastic dabble class at Goldplaited! Sydney and Krista were amazing teachers -- clear explanations, demonstrations, and individual attention. My hair isn't super long, so I appreciated that they focused on starting braids high, and then we were able to finish in a way that worked for our hair lengths and textures. We learned several different braids: underhand, Dutch, rope, and fishtail, as well as how to style braids into cute up styles. This class was so fun, and I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about taking it!

    I really enjoyed the class and strengthened my braiding skills. Krysta was our instructor and was very helpful and thorough. She covered products to use, tips and tricks and went thru 4-5 different braid/hair styles. I liked the structure of the class . The instructor would demonstrate on a dummy head and then allow students to practice on themselves. Instructors walked around, gave feedback and provided assistance. French braid was not covered but Krysta did show me how to do a French braid during the second half of the class, which was open format and students were encouraged to practice what was taught in class or ask about a braid they wanted to learn :) Salon was close to Brown/Purple line so getting there after work was a breeze. Would recommend this class :)

I can do lots styles on others, but this class focused on tips on how to do various braids on your own hair, which was great. I also liked the tips on how to do styles I normally do (side bun) in a new/ more interesting way. Good \"101\" class.","teacher_response":null}

I went in with little confidence in my braiding abilities, but the instructors broke it down step-by-step. We had plenty of time to sip wine, practice on our own, follow along with the instructors, and work and with the teachers one-on-one. I left knowing how to do a Dutch braid, a fishtail braid and a French braid, plus two alternatives to ponytails. I look forward to being the envy of Instagram with my hip braids, and I look forward to more classes at goldplaited! ","teacher_response":null}

We learned three different braids and then how to do something called festival hair (I think that's the name - it's where you use an elastic headband around your head and tuck the hair under). They had lots of staff on hand to make sure everyone unferstood how each style worked AND the staff was super friendly and patient for hair challenged folks like myself. I've been able to duplicate all of the braids outside of class and have been getting compliments! I would definitely take another class.","teacher_response":null}

Sydney and Krista were amazing teachers -- clear explanations, demonstrations, and individual attention.

We learned several different braids: underhand, Dutch, rope, and fishtail, as well as how to style braids into cute up styles.

Krysta was our instructor and was very helpful and thorough. She covered products to use, tips and tricks and went thru 4-5 different braid/hair styles. I liked the structure of the class . The instructor would demonstrate on a dummy head and then allow students to practice on themselves. Instructors walked around, gave feedback and provided assistance. French braid was not covered but Krysta did show me how to do a French braid during the second half of the class, which was open format and students were encouraged to practice what was taught in class or ask about a braid they wanted to learn :) Salon was close to Brown/Purple line so getting there after work was a breeze.
