PLEASE NOTE: ALL LIVE COURSES ARE NOW 4 DAY ADVANCED LOCTICIAN COURSES. EM IS NO LONGER RUNNING THE NATURAL LOCTICIAN CERTIFICATE LEVEL 1 ON IT'S OWN DUE TO MOST STUDENTS DESIRING TO
LEARN THE LEVEL 2 SKILLS OF DREAD EXTENSIONS AND WRAPS AS WELL. THE INFO IN THE BUTTON ABOVE LEADS YOU TO AN ENROLMENT PAGE FOR THE ADVANCED LOCTICIAN CERTIFICATE.
The information below is all about the Level 1 part of the course.
* If you have already got experience as a Dread Loctician, Dreadlock Artist or Dreadlock Maker and you wish to learn how to offer a professional dreadlock extensions and wraps service you can ENROL in the Natural Loctician Certificate Course level 2 online or join us for the Advanced Course and gain professional development in all skills.

NB: It is a private certificate. There are no government accredited certificates in "natural dreadlocking" as the government doesn't recognise it as a trade skill outside of the hairdressing industry & we feel it needs to remain a skill separated from the hairdressing industry to keep it 100% natural and unrestricted. The "accredited" hairdressers method still uses harmful chemicals and wax. We do not!

As more hairdressers and dreadlock lovers are preferring to begin their new dreadlocking businesses by offering the full range of dreadlock services I have now added a LIVE LEVEL 2 option to the CURRENT NATURAL LOCTICIAN CERTIFICATE COURSE LEVEL 1 (LIVE).
So from June 2018 each of the Natural Loctician Level 1 Courses that I run FACE TO FACE will involve 4 days of full study to gain an ADVANCED LOCTICIAN LEVEL. With Level 1 in the first 3 days and
level 2 on the final day.
This course will include 3 days and 21 hours of study on Level 1 skills Monday to Wednesday 9-4pm (which includes natural dreadlock creation and maintenance with the Divine Hand & Hook Method, all dreadlock and hair theory and how to set up and run your dreadlocking service) with 7 hours of training 9-4pm to learn the vital Level 2 theoretical and practical skills involved in offering a seamless dread extensions and dread wraps service to clients.
Level 1 costs are $2100 including the full Locticians Kit which contains a hairdressers mannequin & all the tools you'll need to get through the training as well as operate your business, so if you set up a studio from home, then there's no more costs involved.
Level 2 costs $700 and includes 2 hair extensions to practice your hands on skills of dread extension creation.
TOTAL COST OF BOTH LEVELS IS USUALLY $2800 but when you ENROL IN THE ADVANCED LOCTICIAN CERTIFICATE COURSE and bundle both levels together you get $300 off and only pay $2500 if you enrol 6 weeks before the start date.
PAYMENTS PLANS ARE AVAILABLE:
PAY it off in 5 weeks: 5 weeks of $500 per week.
PAY it off in 5 fortnights: $500 per fortnight.
PAY it off in 5 months: $500 per month.
NB: ALL PAYMENT PLANS MUST BE CREATED VIA PERSONAL DIRECT DEBIT FROM THE STUDENT. THE FIRST PAYMENT SECURES YOUR PLACE IN THE CHOSEN COURSE. AND PAYMENT MUST BE MADE IN FULL BEFORE THE COURSE START DATE. So if you can only afford the 5 month plan, choose a course 5-6 months ahead.
**COURSES ARE RUN 3 - 4 TIMES A YEAR SO THERE'S ALWAYS A COURSE AHEAD TO BOOK INTO.
DUE TO LIMITED NUMBERS & POPULARITY THIS COURSE FILLS UP FAST.

Finally dreadlocks, dreads or locs are becoming more popular and are rising up out of their previously stereotypical background as perceived to only belong to African's Rastafarians, hippies and
surfers. Due to Dread Locticians who use the Divine Hand & Hook thorough crochet method of dreadlocking and other artisan dreadlock makers who work thoroughly with the crochet hook dreadlock
method - there are more and more beautiful well made dreads out there, which means more and more people are wanting them.
This means there is a huge need for more top quality, all natural, dread locticians in the world. There are now a few options for studying to become a Dread Loctician, professional dreadlock maker or dreadlock artist, so which dread loctician course will be best for you and help you to learn with ease and full support?
Firstly, the most important factor in choosing which dreadlock training is best to complete to enable you to become a top dread loctician - is select the right dreadlocking method. There's twist and rip, palm roll and wax, backcomb, palm roll and wax, twist palm roll and wax, backcomb, latch hook and wax, backcomb perm solution and pal roll with wax, a loopy braid style with a bit of hooking, backcomb and needling and wax OR there's the crochet hook method. Then within the world of the crochet hook method, there's dread locticians who do a 10% lock, a 20% lock, a 30% lock etc etc all the way up to an 80% lock - but the only method that teaches a 90% lock (100% crochet locked is akin to a steel tent pole and actually overlocked) is the Divine Hand & Hook crochet method of dreadlocking.
Other than all other methods, the Divine Hand and Hook Method (DH&H) is the ONLY method that requires very little maintenance. Crochet dreadlocking under 80% is still great, much better than any dreadlock method that doesn't use any crochet hook locking, but if the loctician has done less than an 80% lock on your hair it means there are sections of unlocked hair that may bulge or loop out after a few swims or washes & need maintenance within the ideal 3 month time frame.
So essentially the DH&H method taught by Em from Divine Dreadlocks creates neat, tight, NO shrinkage, NO product, NO string, NO wax, NO chemical, low maintenance dreads, which are definitely the MOST POPULAR dreadlocks when people are choosing to invest in them by seeing a Dread Loctician. Seriously, unless you want to go the natty al la natural dread creation, aka neglect method, then if you are paying to get dreads you want them to be awesome!
That's what Em teaches you to do: Make the highest quality dreadlocks, dreadlock extensions, extension installs and perform the best dreadlock maintenance around. So we can guarantee you've got the best method of dreadlock training when you choose to train with Em & Divine Dreadlocks.
Another important factor when choosing a Dread Loctician Training Course or a Dread Loctician Certificate to complete is to look at the trainer's teaching ability. Many people have excellent skills but can't transfer them if they had an iron on print to use.
So check that your dread loctician trainer has some teaching experience or credentials. If they don't then you should read all the reviews on their training or ask around in dreadlock groups what people think of their training.
Em is a natural born, passionate teacher. She studied a Diploma of Education in 2009 and became a teacher that year, working in Steiner and state high schools teaching Visual Arts, Design and Technology, Textiles and occasionally maths and science. She wrote a professional curriculum for her Dread Loctician courses to ensure that all the various learning styles were met in both the live and online course. This means that you will not get bored, or get stuck when you are studying the Natural Dread Loctician or Advanced Dread Loctician Course with Divine Dreadlocks. It won't matter if you're a visual learner, a kinesthetic learner, an auditory learner or a logical learner, Ems' got your personal learning intelligence covered to ensure that YOU will learn the different dreadlock practical skills and vital dreadlocking theory from her dreadlock certificate courses.
Another really important factor when choosing a dreadlock certificate course or dread loctician training is to check on how much support you'll get. Is your trainer just going to sell you some videos to watch and answer one or two emails? Are you going to attend a live course and never get any more info on dreadlocking again after you finish? Or will your dreadlock trainer, be there before during and after the course to ensure that you can apply your skills, set up your dreadlock business and actually earn money from your skill?
With all training from Divine Dreadlocks you get full support before, during and after your Dread Loctician course, whether you study your dreadlock course ONLINE or LIVE in studio with Em. You can join her private Facebook group where all the other dread locticians she has trained hang out and offer support to you. Em will check a few times a week and is also available to support you through private 1 on 1 phone calls, messenger video calls and emails. In addition to this you will receive 6 months worth of support emails designed to help you to set up your dreadlock business and become successful.
Almost of the feedback that Em gets from her students includes positive comments on how supportive a dreadlock trainer she is and how good the after support is.
If you don't want to take our word for it, just read her reviews on Facebook and Google!
