"I want dreads, but I don't want little stubby ones." (Bummer.)
"I want dreads, but I don't want them to stick straight out." (Total bummer.)
"I want dreads, but I would rather get a haircut from a rusty lawnmower than grow my hair out."
(Okay, that one's a direct quote from me.)
I want dreads, but... But what? All through high school I wanted dreads - but I could never get past the really gnarly 'growing out' phase. That special time when my puffy hair started growing out rather than out. When the celebrity I closest resembled was famous for playing Luke Skywalker. Yeah - that hair. Man, if only I knew then what I know now. So what do I know, anyways?
Human Hair Dreadlock Extensions! I really wanted long hair, but could not get there myself. I even tried regular human hair extensions, but they weren't for me. Too much daily/nightly maintenance for someone's who's essentially a wash n' wear kinda gal. So we pulled out my new extensions, and we kinda recycled 'em. What sounds easier - 5 gazillion pieces of long hair? Or 50? No contest, right? When I started my locks, my hair was about 4 inches long. Really! People who had seen me just days before had to do a double-take, they are that natural. No one could tell where my lock ended and my newly aded length began; not even myself. Long hair and easy styling? Yes, yes, and yes. Please.
How's it work? Well, this is something I usually take on over a couple days - the first one for natural locks, and the second for adding length. Most often, the appointments are roughly equal for time, about 6 to 8 hours (or about 1.5 seasons of Metalocalypse with bonus features. And singalongs.) Your new length is woven in the same method as your new dreads are started (or as I've tuned up your existing locks) using high quality human hair, so the join between your natural and your new long lock will be undetectable. There may be a slight colour/texture difference in the first weeks, but with a few washes and palmrolls, that dread becomes one unified felted lock fast.
This is serious rockstar hair! And it's without a doubt my favourite service to provide in the shop.
