Well I don't need to get a job here in China, I have my own business for exporting machinery to Middle East and North Africa, I have people working for me here so stop saying get a job! Plus I am doing my PHD.

 

Thanks for your unprofessional answer!

Here is the complete list of 'my' saloons in Beijing:

I posted listings of all 'my' dread-Bj-joints on Yahoo, and all are 'visible' through Yahoo-gle search with key words: 'Dreadlock salons in Beijing, (capital of) China'angel.

It looks, I'll need new suitcase soon, for all eChina pending raincoats.....

You need someone to dreadlock your hair? Pussy! Real dreadlocks take time & effort, your effort! Having them done at the hairdressers is just fake man!

ScotsAlan:

Good answer. dreadlocks are a statement of alternative identity. Your question puts you into a fashion aspect of identity.Rastas do it themselfs. Wanna be rasters, pay.

Dreads are a great idea. You will get much more respect here in China with dreadlocks and it will certainly help your job application to whatever kindergarten you are applying to. A few "tribal" tattoos on your full sleeve artwork will be a bonus. "Please start Monday!"

Iron12:

I doubt that tatoos are respected. But i think dredlocks are an excellent gimmick, the kids will like that!

I heard that Majesty Hair Salon is the longest-standing African salon in Beijing offering a full range of services, from braiding to relaxing. You might find it worth a try. Another popular brand is called Pauma Hair Salon which claims itself as an official Afro American hair salon here. Staff there could speak English, French and Chinese.
