Step 1 - The Consultation
The Consultation fee is $25. Your hair should be washed at least 48 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. During this session, the following will be covered: We will discuss your personal hair care history, your styling preferences and your lifestyle in order to determine if Sisterlocks is right for you. You will also have a cluster of approximately 8-12 "SAMPLE LOCKS" put in your hair to see if they will hold, check sizes, verify the amount of scalp showing, settling-in time, etc. This consultation is essential for both you and your consultant to ensure you get your Sisterlocks done in the most suitable way.
Step 2 – Locking Session
This is when your Sisterlocks ™ will be installed. Prices start at $750 for 4 inches of hair, then it is calculated at $50 for each additional inch. Hair that is longer than 10 inches is automatically calculated at $100 per inch. Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 16-20 hours or even longer in some cases. The average Sisterlocks customer will leave this session with an average of 400 locks and a whole new attitude! After your session is complete, you will be provided with a "Starter Kit" that includes the proper shampoo for starting your locks, tiny rubber bands and "tip sheets" on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle in. Be sure to schedule your follow-up visit before you leave. Good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks over time.
Step 3 – The Follow-up (first retightening)
The follow-up visit is a free service and is included in the initial installation price quote. You will need to schedule your follow-up visit after at least two shampooings, which is usually with a month from the time you first get your locks put in. 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.
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.
