About The Directory

What is the Locks & Links Business Directory?
The directory is where visitors to the site can search for and access the contact details of businesses and freelancers within the black hair and beauty industry.

It is a powerful marketing tool for businesses. As shown on this sample entry registered businesses can display:
  • Business contact details
  • A summary of services
  • Directions to the business location
  • Opening hours
  • Any offers they are running
  • An image (a hair style they've created, their salon etc.) and it's related description
Businesses can also upload hairstyle images for inclusion in the Style Gallery.

Register/Login/Passwords

Why should I register my business on the Locks & Links Business Directory?
For no cost and very little effort you get to market your business and services to a large number of targeted visitors to the site.

How much does it cost?
Nothing at all, it is completely free to register a business on the directory.

Can the same business be registered twice?
No, we will remove any duplicate entries.

How do I change my username and password?
It isn't possible to change your username. If you've forgotten your password (or you have a reason to change it) then fill out the form on this page.

Directory Content

Am I allowed to upload content that does not belong to me?
No, you must hold the copyright or have permission to use any content (images or text) that you upload onto the site.

What should I do if I see inappropriate content on the site?
Contact us and we will remove the offending piece if necessary.

I've filled in my business details but they are not appearing in the directory
Unless you are a freelance stylist, your business name and address must be filled in order to appear in the directory.

I'm having problems uploading an image
Make sure your image is the right format (.jpg or .gif), that it is less than 50KB and that it doesn't exceed 300px (width) x 400px (height).

Images greater than 300x400px will be automatically resized but you will need image editing software to meet the other requirements. Your scanner or digital camera may include such software.

Freelance Stylists

I'm a Freelance Stylist, I want to appear in the directory but I don't want to give out my personal details
We positively discourage people from disclosing their home address or phone number online.

Freelance Stylists need only fill out their trading name and city in order to appear in the directory. We would suggest setting up an email address on one of the free services (gmail, yahoo! mail, hotmail) dedicated to receiving enquiries from the directory.
