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!

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!"

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.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
