This is a pretty commonly asked question. The easiest and most fun way is simply to choose a charity you feel strongly about, raise a heap of cash, have a massive party and make a video. Please take 5 mins to enjoy will's dread shave video.
Well, I'm feeling pretty refreshed after my amazing 7 weeks away overseas catching up with family and friends and generally roaming around aimlessly. But i'm finally back at the needle, i'm sure you'll be pleased to know. In fact I haven't stopped since I landed back 3 weeks ago. Great to meet lots of new faces as well as catching up with my lovely regulars. I am slowly building my stock up again for summer so bare with me and there'll be new goodies soon. Hopefully this summer I will have my own palm oil free dread shampoo bars as well as a dread conditioning balm to help against the sizzling NZ sun.
So looking forward to another great kiwi summer, i'm already feeling the warming bbq vibe. Hope to see you all soon.
Sorry everyone but i'm afraid i'm going to escape the chilly nights for a few weeks. I'm off to catch up with my Whanau back home in possibly sunny Scotland!?
I'll be out the country from the 1st of August to the 20th September but will still be contactable to give prices and information via email and text though email is preferable.
I apologise for any inconvenience this might cause but i'll be sure to bring back some travel stories, keep tuned to my facebook page for photos and updates. And business will be as normal from the 20th september.
Well its been a great long summer here in the mount and all the other amazing places that we've been getting to. Met lots of new dread lovers between Raggamuffin and Womad and I'm sure we will be doing a trip to taranaki again soon. We've also got a new load of large dread slouch hats ready for winter and felted add-ins and extensions if you like to go for something a little less conventional. Also 10% off new sets until 18th of april so get in soon!!
Love what this gisbourne company is doing. www.gobamboo.co.nz
using bamboo to replace little plastic household short life items. Think its time to awaken my environmental consciousness and step it up a notch!
So it's been a while but i'm still here. Was chocka block with Raggamuffin madness but thankfully back down to earth now. I have also been expanding my range of hats so pop over and check them out. There's also new beads and new add-ins instore now., including the much asked after feathers!! I do not stock the genetically modified feathers, which are a longer slender feather. The ones i have are from regular farmed roosters, locally hand dyed and they actually suit dreads better being a little wider. I've had my feather in for 3 months now and its still strong.
As well as that i have a new page that tells you where and when i plan to be around the country so i can bring some needle twisting dread work to your door. Trying to cover all bases here but if you'd like to see something new instore give me a shout and i'll see what i can do.
hope everyone's been having a great festive time, i am going off the grid for a few days if you have any enquiries, please send a email or text and i will reply as soon as possible. next appointment's available from the 3rd of January, daytime as well as evenings and weekends. Looking forward to a new year and making lots of lovely sets of dreads. have a great new year everyone!
wishing everyone an awesome day tomorrow, i hope everyone eats lots and has lots of laughs with great people.
So, you been thinking about dreads for a while; you like them but you're not sure whether they'll suit you. You may be worried about cutting your hair if you decide against them or you might just want a new style for summer....the answer is here...
now you can have the dreadlock look for 2-3 months at a time and at the end still have you hair as it was.
We can attach synthetic or human hair dreads to your hair without any crazy glues and no one will know. The dreads are attached with micro beads which are then hidden inside the dread so can't be seen. They will grow out with your hair so how long they last will depend on how fast your hair grows. These will not damage your hair, your own hair will not be dreaded. It is the equivalent to having braids with extensions or normal micro bead hair extensions.
If you love your new temporary dreads, as i'm sure you will, you can come back and get them re-attached at a cheaper rate as you already own the dreads or if you feel ready to make the plunge you can have them added to a full set of dreads as extensions so they will be an investment into you dread journey either way.
If you are interested and would like to know more contact us to make a free consultation.
prices vary depending on amount and type of hair required
