” How to Become A Natural Hair Stylist?” Online Course Was Created Why?

I’m always asked why did you stop doing hair, Denise you were so good?

You see I am a third generation cosmetologist.

My grandfather was a hairstylist. Many of his clients were national celebrities like Nate King Cole, Yes he styled those finger waves.

Being that Jim Crow and segregation in the south required Blacks to spend their dollars with each other for many of the industrialized service jobs my grandfather owned his beauty salon in St. Louis, Missouri.

My mother was a kitchen beautician. She styles everyone in the neighborhood since her father owned the local salon. She became known as the girl with the curl. Her skills at perm rodding  Jerry Curls for her friends later advanced her into the health sciences.

As for me, I became a cosmetologist just because I saw both of my mother and grandfather work behind the chair.

Both of them complaining about the Chair of Cosmetology Board and the constant changes and challenges of licensure.

After becoming a licensed cosmetologist, instructor, and school manager but somehow still unemployable. I decided to return back to college. While attending an advanced social media course. The assignment was to interview a person on social media utilizing one of the platforms taught in the course.

So, I reached out to a young lady on Craiglist with ads for Natural Hair Styling services mainly sew-in weave extensions hairstyles.

So I booked an appointment for a full head sew-in.

At the appointment, I wanted to learn how she posted the ads, were the ads working and if she agreed to the terms of the platform?

Well, what I walked away with was mind-blowing.

She began to ask me about a large tattoo I have on my neck of a blow-dryer, comb, and scissors.

She asks if I was a licensed cosmetologist?

She went on to gather paperwork for an application to Minnesota’s Hair Braider Registration.

Then she challenged me by saying” if you really licensed then apply for approval to teach this course so I can open my shop?”

More importantly, she showed me an auditing letter from the Minnesota Department of Revenue capturing her Working Family Credit (WFC) the equivalent of the IRS Federal Earned Income Credit (EIC) stating without a registration form the Board of Cosmetologist Examines she would NOT be receiving her tax credits.

I know that the WFC and EIC is the largest WEALTH builder for women of color.

So, I immediately took action.

And that’s why the online course on “How to Become A Natural Hair Stylist?” was created.

How to Get a Natural Hair Braider License in Alabama?

In Alabama, before one can become a hair braider, cosmetologist, shampooer, massage therapist, auctioneer, pest control worker, and so on, one must first jump through a variety of hoops—attending classes, taking exams, and paying costly initial and recurring fees—mostly set at the state level and throughout the course of one’s career.

Here are those hoops:

First the Application Process for a Candidate who applies for licensure with the Alabama State Board of Cosmetology is at http://www.aboc.state.al.us.

Second the Candidate schedules and passes theory examination with PSI.

Candidate reviews examination requirements in Candidate Handbook available at http://www.pcshq.com

Third the PCS receives Board Approval for you the candidate to take Practical Examination.

Fourth, you the Candidate registers with PCS for the Practical Examination at (888) 822‐3272.

Fifth, the PCS e‐mails candidate a Practical Admission Notice 10 business days prior to examination.

Sixth, you the Candidate takes Practical Examination.

Seventh, the Alabama Board Office Forwards Score Notice to you the Candidate.

Last, if you pass both test the AL State Board issues license to you the candidate. Click here for the Candidate Hand Book 📚The Institute of Justice references September 1, 2013, hair braiders in Alabama have been regulated as “natural hair stylists.” Previously, the legal status of braiders was unclear, though braiding may have fallen within the state’s definition of cosmetology (and required 1,200 hours of training). To become licensed, natural hair stylists must be at least 16 years old, have at least a 10th grade education, and complete 210 hours of coursework.



The Hairstylist and 420

With all this talk about 420. I wanted to see how Natural Hair Licensing and Cannabis compared.

This article on the difference in stock investment for both Regis (NYSE: RGS) and Cannabis Sativa (OTCMKTS:CBDS) both are small-cap retail/wholesale companies, but which is the better investment?

This article will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their risk, valuation, analyst recommendations, institutional ownership, earnings, profitability and dividends.

Traveling Hairstylists

Here is a great article on why you would WANT to legitimize your business and be licensed.

Without licensure the public has no protection against your running off with their money.

Because you are licensed you name will be registered in the state portal as a “real” business.

This client blindly sent $150 to a hairstylist for hair braiding services that she almost DIDN’T get because of a dead phone battery. So if you want to know more about the crackdown on Peer to Peer payments on apps like PayPal, Zelle, CashApp and others click here.
