Do you recognize this?

  • You are not happy in your current work life, you are no longer motivated and you may even see your work as a routine.
  • You are very creative, but you cannot express your creativity in your current work.
  • You would really like to work for yourself, so that you can schedule your own time and you are no longer tied to 9 to 5 working days.
  • You really love Dreads, but how do you become a pro? Where do you start? For example, how can you make beautiful Dreads yourself and how do you reach your own customers?
  • You are very insecure about how you can start for yourself, you are actually looking for guidance so that you can ask questions and be helped.
  • You are already familiar with Dreads, but you want to optimize and improve even further.
  • You find it extra exciting in uncertain times like these whether you will 'make it' with your business, but you are determined to do everything you can to achieve your goal.

What if I tell you there is another way?

You can keep trying, you can watch even more Youtube videos, you can read different books or download freebies.

I can tell you that in 3 months you will still be in this tight situation.
Or you can set the foundation of your company right in one go, so that you can realize your limitless ambitions.

I know my clients and I know you're thinking "I'll be back as soon as I have more money to spend". Realize that this is the biggest pitfall of every starting student. I'm not a saint either, I was also in your shoes 20 years ago. However, I didn't earn a cent because of this way of thinking, because I simply didn't know how to set up my company. And that was still at the beginning of the internet era...

But thanks to my perseverance and investments, I am now, more than 20 years later, one of the largest specialists in the world.

And you know what's so nice, during the online course you can even earn back part of your investment! You soon learn to make good quality Dreads, so you can start selling them right away.

So now you actually have two choices: either you continue with what you are doing now and you realize in three months that you are still in the same circle of working hard and earning little or you invest in my online course in which you can be guided by me as a specialist. I've already walked the path, so you don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I don't have to tell you that this is the fastest route to success :)
Let me help you!
If we start working together, I will teach you the proven successful strategies.

"So much more than just a technique”
In the process of getting more experienced in making Dreadlock Extensions I already have tried other courses.

But this course of Dreadshop is so much more than learning a technique. It gives a total package of skills on how to build a business as a Dreadlock Extension stylist.

On top of that you can become a part of a worldwide community which supports you and can give you feedback if you need it.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in setting up a business as a professional Dreadlock Extension Stylist.

I used to wear synthetic dreadlocks while waiting to get my permanent locks, and I loved them.
After I finished my previous dreadlock education and I did a couple of synthetic installs on other people, I quickly realized there was more to the story than to just braid them in. That is when and why I signed up for Dreadshops Synthetic Dreadlock Stylist course.
I wanted to offer the absolute best service to my clients and take my creative work to the next level. And that is indeed what I have done! Dreadshop has taught me a lot of details that makes the biggest difference. It is a very comprehensive course that teaches you everything you need to know to start thinking like a professional dreadlock stylist. It gives you the tools to do the work.
And believe me, it’s a lot of work! But it is so worth it, and the reward? The reward is game changing!

I would definitely recommend the Synthetic Dreadlock Sylist course with Dreadshop to anyone considering it! Although I was already making dreads before starting the course I would class it as being the best business decision I made so far.

The course was high quality and professional and definitely exceeded all of my expectations, delivering knowledge on making Dreadlocks, installing dreadlocks, and the business side of being a Synthetic Dreadlock Artist.

I signed up to the course because I wanted to perfect my craft but also because I wanted to achieve a more consistent diary of orders. This has already happened and I am usually fully booked 2 months in advance now. I also wanted to learn some techniques I didn't previously feel comfortable in offering, such as ombre dreads, longer extended dreads, and blunt ends. I learned all of this and more!

My main concern before committing to the course was the financial investment and if it was going to be affordable for me. However, I actually exceeded the guarantee of being able to make this investment back within 12 months, and managed to do it even before the end of the course.


What will the Course bring you?

After this online course you will have the foundation for your own salon. You have a lot of valuable information that you can use to attract your clients.

You can also use our community. We will refer customers from your area to your salon. This will give you more peace and security.

You can make and install high-quality Dreads with different techniques.
You know how to attract the best customers through social media. How to charge good prices for your work.
And you receive a Dreadshop certificate that you can hang in your salon, with which your clients see that you are certified.

You can get creative and determine your own time and of course the most important thing, you enjoy your work!

YES! I want to start my own Salon!

This acadamy is only suitable for you if:

  • Decisive and ambitious are two words that describe you well
  • You want to take responsibility for your own life and to organize your work in such a way that it really makes you happy
  • You want to make the world a bit more beautiful with your qualities and you are very hungry to really do something for this.

I’ve been doing synthetic dreadlocks professionally for many years, and joined the course because I wanted to be a part of the community and to maybe be able to give some peer review to the content.

I was part of the pilot group, and for me to join was a great possibility to have students in different levels.

It has been a great experience to follow the development of the course and I loved seeing the other students develop their skills. It’s amazing to be part of a learning community and the energy in the group has been very inspiring.

Even though I already had a business and knew how to do synthetic dreadlocks, I still learned so much in this course.

It has been great to see how the stylists at Dreadshop work and has been an amazing insight into the Dreadshop business. I loved to get to know the people behind it even better, and how they share all the things you need to know to be successful.

I would recommend this course to people who are serious about getting a professional business in the synthetic dreadlock profession up and running.

The course takes you through all steps of the way, and if you’re dedicated and put in the time and effort, then you will have all the tools you need to run your own business.

And you will have your “classmates” as sparring partners both during and after the course. This is really valuable because being a solo stylist sometimes can get lonely and you just go into routines.

This course has given me the great opportunity to review all my techniques, materials and how I run my business – and on top giving me colleagues.
