What is Weirdsistas and what do they do...?
The Weirdsistas is a niche business that is everything dreads, we use a two part process, The first being the Sista System, a weaving technique that helps to bind the hair, and a second a product company called Lock Stock and Apparel, which is a dreads only range, designed to work with your follicle to help establish dreads as quickly as possible.
Once the dreads are formed, they require maintenance every 4 weeks to 3 months depending on their age. our database contains over 2000 returning clients, and it is growing at a rate of 30% every week; of this, a majority will need 2+ hours of base and length maintenance 3 monthly. The maintenance is a big part of the Weirdsista business, it can take between 1.5 and 2 hours to maintain someones locks. We suggest a good scale is 40 to 60 dreads for base maintaining requires 1.5 to 2 hours. Of course their is allot of difference in the amounts of dreads people have, and this determines the amount of time they stay in the chair. Most clients will pay between 140.00 and 170.00 every 3 months, for maintenance alone.
Dread extensions are a very big part of this industry, with both male and female clients asking for extensions. We also perform dread surgery, which requires us to bulk out hair to give those with thin or lifeless hair extra volume, adding a fabulous look to even the finest of hair. We have a good relationship with our wholesalers and we source only kosher hair suppliers.
FULL INSTALL . The Weirdsistas are celebrated for their unique triangular sectioning, resembling the flower of life, used in the Full install process. This process, allows for each dreadlock to maintain its cylindrical shape whilst giving the scalp a natural base shape. this technique eliminates most problems associated with dandruff and dry skin, which are common issues that can be exacerbated by dreadlock installation.
