Dreadlock specialist Patrick Molobeng has been successfully running his hair business during the pandemic, but said that he had to go back to the drawing board after his first hair salon project failed.

Molobeng now owns Pat Locticians Salon that offers natural dreadlock installation and deadlock maintenance services. He started the business last year after the first lockdown as a way to put the skills he acquired at school to practice and create a source of income in the midst of the pandemic. He did a hairdressing course at the Gaborone Technical College in 2004 after which he got an opportunity to specialise in dreadlock installation and maintenance at Gemstone, a South African company that specialises in Caucasian hair.    

“After my time as a Gemstone stylist I opened my first salon, which failed and I went back to the drawing board, which is why I came up with the same concept, but with a different approach to the business model,” Molobeng remarked. On starting a business during the pandemic, he pointed out that it has been a challenge as businesses had to close for an extended amount of time during the lockdowns.
