Loctician license do I need one?

Uncategorized Nov 05, 2018
One of the most common questions that I get is if you have to have a special license in order to be a loctician and run my own dreadlock salon, every country and if you are from America then there might be different laws depending on what state you are from. So I’m going to list information about places thru out the world what is needed if your dream is to become a loctician.
Please contact your own government in order to really know that this information is accurate at this moment. If you find anything that is out of date please email me at [email protected] and I can update this list! Thanks! (It is hard for me to keep track of what is happening in each country at all time phew…..)
