Introducing some of the newest Sisterlocks Consultant Trainees!


I had the absolute best time at the Consultant Training class. I met some amazing women and learned a great wealth of knowledge. We got to speak with Dr. Cornwell over the phone which was a nice treat. This picture is from our third day of class. That's me with the blue scarf in the back with my head peeking up!

At the end of day four, we had the pleasure of being shown some styles for locked hair. Check out these beautiful Sisterlocks in a pretty style. My classmates nicknamed me "mega locks" because of "my massive amount of hair". It was funny. I wore my hair down one day and everyone asked if they could play in it. Our live models didn't show up so we had to volunteer as models. Everyone was eyeing my hair for practice, but I had a retightening recently so I had to decline. They were disappointed :-)

The picture below shows the completion of my first 4 rows, yeah for me! I need a lot more practice on my mannequin head, but I'm getting the hang of the technique more and more.

I took this class to learn everything I could to better maintain my hair. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to be certified, but I think I will pursue it now. By the way, for those on the East Coast (and other areas too of course), one of the Master Trainers will be sending out information on having a gathering in our area (possibly Philly) and having Dr. Cornwell join us for a meet and greet. In addition, they are are going to see if they can get approval to possibly have the Sisterlocks Homecoming planned for the East Coast in an upcoming year. No promises yet, but I'm hopeful that they will pull it off. I think this would be great, although I admit I am biased living in MD :-)

I'll be sure to pass along all info I receive!

look at you!!! awesome!! Congrats on your cert!


But ok, why is your mannekins hair straight? Is it supposed to resemble people with permed hair?? Hmmm.....

n'Drea said...

Congrats girl. I'm so proud of you. Go on with your bad self :-)

Hmmm, Sunsail posed a very interesting question. Is is that they don't have any with natural hair? I'm thinking that you would want to practise on that type hair as well.

Hi sunsail and n'drea. I was a little dissapointed when I saw the hair on the mannequin, but the saying was if we do the technique on this hair, we could do it on any type of hair. I guess that remains to be seen. One of my goals this weekend is to find one with a different texture. I believe I've seen them before but don't remember where. If anyone knows, please tell me!

Hello, been following your blog, glad to see you doing the certification. Congrats.

I too was wondering about the straight-haired mannequin.

I've taken a retightening class in the UK and we did not have the "dummy heads" to practice on but had to practice on our own hair. Are the heads provided with the kits in American classes as all we got was a mirror, the 2 tools, note book, leaflets, and a few clips to separte the hair.
