What Our Goddesses Are Saying


I absolutely enjoyed your workshop and the knowledge you had to offer! It was most definitely worth the trip from Detroit! It was such a pleasure meeting you! What shocked me the most is that the class size was so small and how HUMBLE you were for a celebrity stylist! 

You are truly a beautiful person inside and out! I can honestly say that my twist skills, especially with extensions has really improved. They look much more neater and uniform. You really helped me pinpoint what I was doing wrong and what I needed to improve on. 

I loved how hands on it was. Learning about the different types of hair was also very helpful. I took away not only tips and tricks for twisting, but trichology and business information. I have always been interested in trichology and you gave me a lot of valuable information, and cleared up some things for me. 

As far a business I can't thank you enough for reiterating establishing your value offerings so that we may be fulfilled while servicing clients! We all have to start somewhere but the sky is the limit! Thanks for sharing your time and your knowledge. I really look forward to working with you in the future! 


This bootcamp has literally changed my life! From the first moments of meeting Dr.Kari and Nadra I knew I was supposed to be at the Bootcamp. I am forever grateful for this opportunity and am beyond excited about the future. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Melina C.

I have learned so much more than expected. I would go on to YouTube to learn things, but now that I've taken the bootcamp I've learned the correct ways to style hair. I had so much fun. Thank you for pushing me. I needed this! 

Erica M.

This was the best learning experience I've gotten as an adult within my field. There was hands-on training, lots of information and techniques from people who care to see us succeed. 

Briel W.

This bootcamp was life changing for me mentally, spiritually and for my career. I think stylists who truly love what they do need to experience the spirit and expertise of Dr.Kari. I can't wait to see what the future has in store. 

Courtney E.

My favorite part of the Goddess Locs Certification Program is the support received from the incomparable Dr. Kari Wiliams. She really cares about each stylist, and does her best to ensure the success of each student. I also love the product education received in the course. The program is extremely educational, thorough, and fun! I love Dr. Kari's down to earth personality, understanding, and level of excellence!

Now, I take even more care to make sure the look is entirely finished/polished. I looooove the standard of excellence Dr. Kari ensues. I've also taken time to re-evaluate my pricing, especially for traveling. Dr. Kari helped me see my OWN worth! It's an amazing program....definitely worth the time and the money

Lady K

Since I started receiving referrals from Dr. Kari it has absolutely helped increase my business as well as my income. I was able to raise my prices because I was being referred by such a reputable source and because I acknowledge the quality of my work was worth every penny. In 6 months I went from 12-15 new clients to an average of 25-30 new clients per month, with more than half becoming repeat clients. I thank God everyday for this referral blessing.

Jessica M.

My clientele has doubled! I'm so grateful to Dr.Kari. I've saved so much time. I no longer have to go out and advertise on my own or rely on walk-ins. If you are on the fence about joining this program I'd say stop concerning yourself with growing your clientele on your own. Let Dr.Kari do that for you, and the rest is up to you. 

Kelsie L.

I have gained a very loyal client because of Dr.Kari. She found me through Dr.Kari's website as she originally lived in California and relocated to St.Louis. She has also referred friend and family to me. Working with Dr.Kari is SO WORTH IT! I have gained so much knowledge from different braid techniques to marketing.

Dr. Kari’s Goddess Loc Certification Program teaches and guides you “to Unlearn so you can Relearn.” Touching on self confidence, proper technique, consultation,  managing our finances and how “Repetition makes the Master.”

Everything I’ve learned in the course I have applied to my every day routine from personal uplifting to making sure my clients have an amazing experience.


The best part of the Goddess Loc Program is working with Dr.Kari. I can go on all day about how amazing she is, because she is very passionate when it comes to supporting hairstylists around the world.

I have been keeping up with Dr. K for years and I never thought I would have the opportunity to work with her. I'm thankful that she is willing to share her creation with us, because you won't find what she's offering on Youtube. She's humble, down to earth, and patient. I'm a GREAT braider, but I wanted to learn a new skill and that's why I took the course. Dr. K was able to train me, (with no Loc experience). Even if you do Goddess Locs really good, this course is still for you. This course is for anyone who wants to level up and is willing to put in the work.


Since I have completed the course I feel more creative, and confident. I have all the tools I need to be successful and if I need to, I know I can reach out to Dr. K for advice. I have met a few other Goddess Loc Masters and I couldn't help but notice they are very talented, and professional. I still can't believe that I'm a Goddess Loc Master! The Goddess Loc course is worth every penny, great investment. I value myself and it was the best thing I could have done for my business. THANK YOU DR. K, you really inspire me.

The best part of the training is the accessibility we have to Kari. If there is a question, she’s there to provide a solution.  My client said that she would definitely pay $1000 for this style. It’s lightweight it said it did not hurt. Now she understands why it’s priced the way it is. As a stylist I would not charge a penny less because I to see the value now that I’ve done the process.

Kelsie L.

Dr. Kari was so gracious sharing her ups and downs which made me feel a lot more comfortable. She gave me great counsel and shared relatable experiences. You can talk to Dr.Kari about anything and get real and honest feedback. Make sure to carry a pen and paper because you can expect nothing but great advice to apply to your business and life.


The best part of the Goddess Loc certification program was the interaction with Dr. Kari. She has a love for teaching, encouraging and supporting fellow stylists. She’s not only giving us a new skill set with a specific and well thought out processes but a technique that will assure you are just that “a goddess loc master”.  


She taught on everything from the history of Locs and the importance of a consultation to the way should we should stand while working. She even taught us how to stretch so that we can preserve our bodies and have a longevity in our career.  


I also love that she equipped us with reassurance by not only telling us we are the authority but also referring different books and resources to reaffirm all of this. 


The Goddess Loc class was one of the best decisions/investments I have ever made and I highly recommend it.  One last point, although this is just the beginning for me I haven’t received any clients yet from this platform; I truly believe in what we are doing. I am so much more confident in myself and the class has  made me a better stylist over all.  I am excited to be a part of this team.

The Big Mental Roadblocks

holding you back

  • I currently work out of my home, people won't pay me more for my services
  • I don't work with celebrities or have celebrity connections
  • People won't pay me for my services
  • I don't have a lot (or any!) clients so this won't work for me
  •  I don't have a lot of followers on social media
  • I'm a self-taught stylist and I worry I'm not good enough to charge more
  • I don't have a support network or anyone who can help me
  •  I'll have to figure it out by myself and it's too hard

If you've tried creating content and posting hair styles online but NEVER get a client who found you on social media, it can be disheartening. You might think you have to resort to discounts to get new clients. But that couldn't be farther from the truth!

I started doing hair out of my home. I'm a self-taught stylist and built my business from the ground up. No matter where you are starting from I get it! I understand your struggles and I'm committed to seeing all my stylists achieve great success.
