Dreadlock Installation

Are you ready to take the plunge and have a set of dreadlocks installed in a relaxing and fun atmosphere? Come, enjoy a chai, sit for a bit and have a chat about how you want your dream set of dreads created. There are lots of options available, and I can explain them all in a free consult.

The installation method shapes how the dreads will look once they're mature. It can also mean that a dreadlock needs less, or more maintenance.

There are a few different choices when it comes to sectioning the hair.

This includes:

All give a slightly different look to the end result.
