Hi I'm Kim Carter, owner of LockZitude, LLC. I am also known as Goldee. I started my personal Sisterlocks® journey in April of 2013 with just over two inches of natural hair on the sides and back and three inches of natural hair on top. After years of multiple hairstyles and frustration, I felt after having my Sisterlocks® established that I had finally found what my hair needed-- a haircare option that allowed my hair to "just be" and do its thing!
I grew to love my locks so much that I decided in 2015 to take steps to become a Certified Sisterlocks® Consultant not only to maintain my own hair in the event that my consultant was not available for services, but to also help other women learn to love and truly embrace the beauty and complexity of their natural hair. As a former English teacher and school administrator of over 16 years, I have the heart for teaching others and empowering those around me with knowledge and I have enjoyed connecting with my new clients and seeing them transition through their amazing Sisterlocks® journey! At LockZitude, clients are guaranteed a professional--yet laid back and relaxing atmosphere when they are in my chair.
In April 2017, I welcomed an offical Sisterlocks Trainee as my partner, Ms. Joyce Carlisle! Did I mention that she was my mom? Joyce has since earned the title of Certified Sisterlocks® Consultant as well! Way to go Joyce! Because Joyce works full time outside the Sisterlocks business, in August she decided to discontinue taking new clients. She continues to service her existing clients and assists me when she's available.
In this business, availability can shift from month to month and week to week! I do this full time and offer mostly weekday appointments with a few evening appointments weekly with limited Saturday availabiity. I typically am closed on Sundays and Wednesdays.
All services are offered by appointment only and a consultation is required before any services will be considered, so if you're looking for a walk-in service provider, another consultant will be a better fit. In this business it is essential that clients and consultants are a good fit for each other because the locking process is very personal and one that takes time and patience. For this reason, I take client selection very seriously and do not accept all requests for services.
