Step 1 – The Consultation
The Consultation fee is $60. Your hair should be washed at least 24 hours prior to any scheduled appointment and free from products such as conditioners, moisturizers, and oils. Please do not blow dry your hair prior to your consultation. Please also make sure that your hair is loose without braids or plaits.
The consultation takes about an hour. Your Certified Consultant will determine, based upon the length, density and hair texture, the amount of time that it will take to install your Sisterlocks™, as well as the cost.
You will have an opportunity to ask questions about Sisterlocks™ and will be given several sample locks.
Once your installation appointment is set (approximately 2 to 4 weeks after your initial consultation), you will sit with your Certified Consultant to start your “transformation.” Bring a good book, magazine and plenty of snacks. Your installation appointment may take 2 to 3 days. After your installation, a follow-up session will be scheduled.
Step 3 – The Follow-up (first retightening)After your Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ have been installed, at the follow-up visit, your hair is checked for slippage. An overall evaluation will be performed to determine how well the Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ are holding. The locks are then retightened.
Please note: Follow up only includes up to 2 hrs of services. After which the fee is $35 per hour.
Maintenance Visits (ongoing retightening)
Your first few retightening visits should be at regular intervals, which allows your Certified Consultant to monitor the progress of your locks. Your Consultant will be able to determine how often you will need to come in for retightenings. The average time between visits is 4-6 weeks, depending on the amount of slippage and rate of the hair growth.
