I've a MAJOR dilemma resolved!!
WOAH 6-700$ for DREADS!? that's insane! IMO i would try and use your position to teach people about healthy dreading methods and not wax/crochet or otherwise. there are plenty of professional hairstylists that refuse to use certain methods on hair because it's too damaging etc... If you use a method you KNOW to be bad then no matter what you say to the customer they WILL blame you when it goes wrong. Plus you probably don't want to be part of the problem, so be part of the solution!! Many Blessings (((oops just realized i replied kinda late to this so how'd it go??)))Alden said:
So, I just spoke with the owner of the salon and found out exactly what they're looking for.
They need someone to come in once a week to teach the stylists how to dread hair properly, and they need someone daily to dread customers as well.The owner told me that the last girl was charging $100 an hour, flat. Sometimes more, depending on hair length and thickness. And of course it can take in excess of 6 or 7 hours for one head. I thinks that's absolutely ridiculous. Scamming people out of $600-$700 on average for something they could do at home.I can't even entertain the idea of charging that amount of money for the work involved.So I'm going to the salon tomorrow to really talk shop with the owner and get this ball rolling.
