Employment W/Dreads


dreads jobs employment issues

Im a hair stylist in a upscale salon :) apart from being a regular stylist i am able to do dreadlocks aswell and educate people on proper ways to get dreads and how to keep them healthy. I actually got this amazing job right after i was finnished with my locks so i geuss it was meant tobe. One thing i love most about having dreads in the hair industry is some of the most conservative women come in and almost everyday i hear from them "Oh wow I love your hair! ive always wanted to have dreads but could never do it" and that defintly suprised the hell outta me geuss thats whatcha get for sterotyping

How to Convince Parents to allow Dreads? Any Ideas?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

show them pictures of attractive dreads, while having a serious set down talk about it.give them the facts and a good reason why you want them. parents can be tough, how long have you been trying to convince them?they may think you are just going through a fase and will get over it sooner or later. unfortuantly some people will always hate dreads. that is their own oppinion..im not telling you to not obey your parents or isrespect them in anyway . but if you really want them wait until you are out of highschool out of the house then get em.

Might need to say goodbye to my dreadies!


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

hahaha! ok wear you tam good idea..basicly if they like you they like you. with or without dreadlocks. comming from being a mom the only thing i would care about with the person my daughter was dating is if he was kind, put his effort into the relationship, didnt make her do all the work, and genuinly cared about her well being. He could be a troll for all i care as long as he treats her right

@ Personal Jesus - No, it doesn't matter what they think. IF I do do it it's out of respect! I mean it's bad enough that I don't have a real job and on disability for the 2 rods and 6 screws in my lower back and have been trying and fighting to keep my business up and running!

@ Chels - No, I'm not sleeping with them nor her at the moment since we just started dating! I mean when I do meet the parents, I could always wear my tam to hide them for a little bit!

@ SE - I played the game before with my 2nd set by shaving them off for a woman just for the relationship to last maybe 5mths! 1st set came off for a job for lousy pay then they laid me off permanently after 4mths! And there's NO WAY I'll wear a suit and tie and go to church! Played that game too and while sitting in church I realized that it went against all my beleifs! Hell, I'm not even wearing a suit if/when I get married! I'm wearing my patchwork pants, dashiki and going barefoot!

She did tell me that the only 2 things keeping her from dreads are 1. her parents and 2 her job!

IDK I'll see where things lead before I let them go IF I let them go!
