Exactly one year ago I began an amazing journey together with six lovely girls. I decided to listen to what everyone that have been telling me for years that they wanted to learn how to make dreadlocks like me and how to run a dreadlock salon like me and become a professional loctician.
I had been hesitant for years because I had old thought patterns and ideas that it was not something for me and I had to do some soul searching and digging deep down inside of me to heal some old wounds so I could rise up and become the teacher that I always ment to become.
Because when you are hesitant towards something and you might think that there is a lac of something then we always have to look within ourselves and see what is the shift that I need to do within myself in order to thrive.
I remember that I barley could sleep the night before all the students would arrive and I was worried about all kinds of things. What if I’m not able to teach them what is needed?
The first day we went thru all the basics about making dreadlocks and the girls started to work on their doll.
Day two I was fixing coffee and tea down in the kitchen and when I walked upstairs to the salon I found all my students working away on making dreadlocks on their dolls when class haven’t even started yet 😃 HAHAHAHA what is it that I have created.
The students were a bit scared and hesitant because they knew that today they were going to start to make dreadlocks on real life models.
The assignment for the second day is to create dreadlocks on a hairmodel and dreadlocks with extensions on another hairmodel.

Dreadlocks with extensions made by my students on Nadia that also is now a Seienstyle affiliate:
Day two was a long day with two new dreadheads being created and me and the girls were together for over 14 hours to create this magic.
Day three started early again we are going thru dreadlock product knolage and it was time to do dreadlock maintenance on two hairmodels and also extending their dreadlocks and then a synthetic dreads hairmodel. Yes it is going to be another long day.
Dreadlock maintenance and new loose ends to Cecilias dreads made by the students.

The girls are not stopping they are continuing working on eachothers hairs after 12 hours in the salon! =)
Synthetic dreadlocks made by my students:
Day four we are talking about the psychology behind business and how you need to think in order to attract the right clients to you.
I would never image that it would be so fun to teach people to make dreadlocks and if you think that the course is just about doing dreadlocks then I want to tell you that it is about so much more then that. In order to be a professional loctitan then you have to be able to have a strong minde and you have to be able to guide people and help your clients in their every day life. Because as soon as you start to touch someones hair something magical happens and you almost get to become someones therapist. 😃 So I’m also teaching what it all is about and how you can become strong and move passed the things that are stopping you in thriving as a human.
This is what I wrote when we were finished after 4 days of making dreadlocks and one day of making hair extensions.
Five long intensive days of dreadlock making and creating hairextensions has come to an end.
We are grateful to you for letting us "borrow" your hair and for being so patient with having loads of people, at the same time, working on your hair.
The girls will now go home and then the second part of the training will start, and that is for them to do their own dreadlocks (and hair extensions for some) on hair models before they will be a part of Seienstyle's network of professional loctitans!
