Full Dread Creations

Ready to begin your dreadlock journey!?  I do full dread head creations. By using a comb and hook any hair type can be dreaded.

Partial Dread Creations

Not ready to commit to a full head of dreads? No worries, test the waters by getting a few underneath!

Top Knot & Drullet creation

Top knot are a popular choice for the men (not exclusive to men may I add though!) AND Drullets are the latest fad, I create both styles for everyone!

Dreadlock Maintenance

Dreads needing TLC? Whether it's root maintenance, reconstruction, strengthening dreads, combing out or detangling the birds nest that is casually forming at the back of your head, I can help

Dread Extensions

This is a NEW service! Do you have short hair and have always wanted dreads? Keen on adding some length or color to your existing dreads?  I can create synthetic or human hair dreads to add in.

Temp Dread Sets & Partials

These are a popular alternative to committing your actual hair into dreads. I make synthetic dread sets that braid into the hair, these can be worn for up to 1.5 months before re installing.
