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.
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!!
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!
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
Recently i was asked if i stock ethically sourced human hair for my extensions....i can now say that yes this is currently an option. I currently have dark hair that comes with a certificate and guarantees that no child labour is used in the processing and i also have some great local soft blonde hair. On the subject, if anybody was interested in selling their hair please get in touch i'd be interested to have a look :)
Wow, loving these warmer temperatures we've been getting. and what a beautiful place to be in! If you've never visited the mount i highly recommend it. A great place to visit whilst you're getting your dreads done!
Prepping for the crazy season i've got a new stock of exciting dread beads. Including big hole beads! Check these babies out...
These are handmade so if you have a particular message you'd like made up let me know. They make pretty neat presents. Jump over to the bead page for more new cool beads
I've also done a bit of updating to the photo pages and made things a little bit neater in here, check out the new extensions page. Hope you enjoy!
