Training & Certification
The specific training and certification to become a dreadlock professional varies between states across the country. Some states require locticians to undertake a full cosmetology course through a registered beauty school, while others do not require any formal education to become a practicing loctician. Some states require only hygiene and safety courses to be completed, and/or braiding units from a larger course. Regardless of the individual requirements of each state it is always a good idea for any professional to improve their skills in a competitive market. By completing a cosmetology course or other registered beauty course, or by taking online or face-to-face dreadlock courses, you will only help to increase your chances of becoming successful in the industry.
