NBR 101 - END BEADS

PASS

  • All correct photos have been turned in

REDO

  • If they do not turn in the correct photos

    • It is borderline IMPOSSIBLE to not pass this on the first try

    • The main point is to see that they are practicing, and they are receiving feedback to address the biggest issues they are facing at that moment

  • If the End Beads are not FULLY finished (meaning hair must be stitched on, and the end beads tied off and glued in order to pass)

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF WHEN GIVING FEEDBACK:

 

  • Are the end beads on base?
  • Is there a gap between the end bead and the weft? 
    • Or are they touching?
    • Or are the wefts laying over or underneath the end beads?
  • Are the end beads laying flat or are they tilted?

CORRECT EXAMPLE OF END BEADS

Below are INCORRECT examples of End Beads and possible feedback to give.

END BEADS NOT FINISHED

When it comes to turning in the End Beads, the photos that are turned in need to be fully finished. Meaning that the hair has been sewn on, ends tied off, and glued. Essentially the row is FINISHED.

END BEAD NOT LAYING FLAT

You always want your end beads to be laying completely flat against the head. If they are sticking out and tilted at an angle then it will be an annoyance to the client and potentially cause damage as well. If your bead is tilted and sticking out of the head then you want to cut it off and redo it.

GAP BETWEEN HAIR AND WEFTS

The end beads and the wefts should always meet exactly. If there is a gap there is a chance a brush or comb could get caught and snap the string if the client is rough enough. If you see a gap then you want to take the bead off and redo it.

END BEAD OFF BASE

In the photos, I can see that your end beads are off base. The end beads should always be sitting directly on top of the section. If the bead is sitting off base that will cause discomfort and potential damage to the clients’ scalp. You would want to cut it off and completely redo it. 

NOTE TO TEAM: The photo on the left is the one that was turned in. The photo on the right I circled in RED is the section the artist chose, while the WHITE is the section they SHOULD have chosen. The end bead should always be sitting in the MIDDLE of the section.

LEFT PHOTO - WEFT OVER BEAD, RIGHT PHOTO - WEFT UNDER BEAD

The wefts should always meet the beads exactly. If the hair is sitting over or under the bead that will cause bulkiness to the end of the row. If your client is a picker they will definitely pick at it, and that always leads to damage or slipped beads.
