Microlocs Specialist Hunt: What to Keep in Mind

As a specialist in natural hair and microlocs, I've witnessed both positive and negative experiences that clients encounter when searching for a skilled microlocs expert. In this post, I aim to focus not on the negatives but on the factors to consider during your search. While there are excellent microloc stylists available, it's important to invest time in locating them. The microlocs industry lacks strong regulations and is rapidly evolving. Some stylists claim professionalism after watching a few YouTube videos. However, I'll guide you through a few simple tips to help you find the right microlocs stylist for your journey.

Cheap is not Better.

If a microloc stylist is always fully booked, they're likely not the cheapest but very skilled at what they do. Waiting for an appointment with them is probably worthwhile. When it comes to natural hair care, most women are particular about their hair. So, finding someone who can deliver what they want makes the price less of a concern. However, paying a high price doesn't guarantee the best results. Just be cautious about prioritizing low cost.

Things a microlocs or natural hair stylist must have.

Social Media Presents

Having an active social media presence as a stylist is a bonus. It lets you observe how they interact with people, how they handle clients, and how skilled they are. It's also helpful to follow the groups they're part of and see what others say about them. This way, you can tell if they're trustworthy or if they might be trying to deceive people. Unfortunately, some people create fake pages to trick others and it's surprising how many clients I've had who were scammed. But in these groups, if someone does something shady, they'll call them out. On the other hand, if a stylist is honest and does good work, the group will always praise them.

Microloc Agreement Form

This form helps you understand your responsibilities and those of the stylists. When you see a stylist with a contract, you know they've faced challenges and want to avoid them in the future. It also indicates their dedication to the craft and they respect their time. I once had an incident where I explained to a client the expectations for maintaining their microloc braids, including keeping their hair dry. However, they went swimming against the advice and forgot our conversation. This experience highlighted the need for contracts, to benefit both parties.

They Come Highly Recommended

This is by far one of the best ways to find a Microloc stylist that you can trust is by getting a referral from someone that you trust who uses that natural hair stylist. This will give you more confidence because you can see the growth and care. That it is more likely that you will receive the same thing.

Must Offer a Microloc Consultation

A seasoned and professional microlocs stylists would most likely want to see your hair before the commit to doing it. So if a stylist is head bent on just taking you without a consultation be cautious. Before you let a microlocs hair stylist work on your hair, make sure to request a consultation first. If the stylist you're considering doesn't offer consultations, be cautious. Think of the consultation as an interview – it's worth paying a fee to learn all you need to know about the hairstyling process. It is much better to pay a small fee for the consultation than paying full price and not getting the beautiful locs you wanted.

Not An Anxious Microloc Hairstylist

When a hairstylist seems very anxious, it's a warning sign. Especially if your hair isn't in great shape, and they tell you it's fine. This could be a problem. A good hairstylist prioritizes your hair's health over their earnings because they consider the consequences. They understand that if they install certain styles of locs, and you encounter issues later, it could mean redoing the work for them. And a good hairstylist's time is very valuable.

Must Be Able To Accept Credit Card Payment

Don't pay with cash, Cash App, or Zelle until you trust the microlocs stylist. Use your card for payment. Your card offers protection against potential scammers. Learning this lesson the hard way can be painful.

Red Flag Alert: Stylist Warning – Deposits Before Proper Consultation"

Beware of Hair Stylist Requesting Installation Deposits Before Providing Proper Consultation. Don't Pay Any Stylist a depends until your consultation is done and you receive an appointment date. And make sure you pay with a credit card for your own protection if that turns out to be a fraud and doesn't show -up and give you the run around you can dispute the charge and get your money back. I provide test locs for all my Microloc clients so they can see the size and the method they would like.

Side Note: Things I Do In My Consultation

Depending on your hair's texture and chosen installation method, I'll create a few microloc braids, micro-twists, or micro-interlocks. This lets you preview how Microlocs will appear on you. Seeing a few installed locs can ease your mind, showing the stylist can achieve your desired look. It's a bonus to find a stylist offering this service.
