These range of images showing dreadlocks before and after gives you an idea of how distinctive hair can look with organic dreadlocks.
Awesome team amazing work! Thank you so much
Natural dreadlocks can be styled any way you like. In this case, our client has opted to retain her fringe, leading to a softer look.
Totally Recommend! Not only are Ginny's prices great, but the quality of her dreads are amazing! + She is awesome to talk to whilst sitting there getting your locks done too! Very happy customer!
When it comes to choosing the thickness of your dreadlock you can either go with your hairs natural preference, or your own.
If you're after sweet dreads, Ginny will deliver at a sweet price
Just as super curly hair can be hard to manage, so is very fine hair which tends to lack body and limits what you can do with it. In this next image, our client remedies this by getting dreads and then dreadlock extensions for extra length.
There's no age restriction when it comes to getting dreads. Our youngest client was just 11.
My dreads are going so well thanks so much!
Highly recommend Ginny + Assistant... loving my bro's dreads, thanking you, looks awesome... Aroha!
Having only had her dreads for a couple of weeks, this first image shows a salon job gone terribly wrong. The client went for a softer look with the top half of her hair dreaded and the rest left natural. We have repaired a number of people whose bungled dreads have fallen apart, but never this quickly! The after images show them fixed up and made more colourful after the addition of some wraps and beads.
Here we have a case of a client using an amateur attempt his dreads. As time has gone on most of the dreads haven't locked. The situation was made more difficult by the fact that the dreads are very thin. In this case we repaired the soft dreadlocks that remained, while installing fresh ones for the new growth and dreads which fell apart.
Dreadlock extensions are an easy way to lengthen your hair without having to wait years for your dreads to grow. For more information about dreadlock extensions, take a look at our services section.
This first example gives an indication of how getting dreadlocks can be a great way to tame frizzy, hard to manage hair. Instead of having to keep cutting it short for manageability, dreads first tamed it, before dreadlock extensions gave her length.
I just wanted to let you know how much I'm loving my dreads and how grateful I am for the amazing job you did. For the first time I've had hair that does what I want it to do!
It's easy to maintain another hair colour and still have dread locks - just one more benefit to having an experienced hair stylist working on your dreads! Here we have our clients natural brown hair coming through at the roots, while her dreadlocks are blonde. After giving the dreads some much needed maintenance and then dying the hair, they are good as new.
Some of our clients start off with just a couple of dredlocks to see how they like them. In this next case, our client has gone with a couple of dreads and a wrap to give her a change of style and a dash of colour, proving that dreads don't have to be an all or nothing hairstyle.
If you're a bit worried of what the boss might think of you getting dreadlocks, you can either get professional looking dreadlocks or simply just have dreads underneath your hair in this work-by-day, party-by-night style.
A popular summer option is to shave some of your hair and dread the rest. Here we have some folks opting for a mix of dreadlocks, wraps and beads, to finish up with a more tribal look, ready for the festival scene.
Here’s another example of a client keen to reduce the summer hair sweat. A combination of shaved sides and tying the dreadlocks off her neck worked a treat.
Having the sectioning of your hair kept neat and tidy ensures that dreads won't matt into each other and it keeps your dreadlocks looking presentable. Typically, dreads take time to really mature. We recommend a dread maintenance session 8-12 weeks after you have them done and then every 3-4 months until they are really mature. Here is an example of how dreads can get a little messy and how fab they come up after we have maintained them.
After having my dreads done they soon entered the frizzing stage. Ginny did a great job making them dense and tightened up. It was a pleasure talking with her and I found her experience with dreadlocks showed through her workmanship. Her advice on working with my hair type was excellent. Ginny was able to work around my schedule and I would highly recommend her for any dread maintenance!
With a range of accessories such as wooden or glass beads, wraps and other decorations, we can infuse some creative flair into your dreadlocks. Here our client has chosen an Autumn theme with a mix of coloured (dyed) dreads, a wrap & some beads.
Here we have a client who replaced his faux hawk with some dreadlocks and extensions.
You will notice in some of these next examples that our clients have gone for a softer look, with an equal mixture of natural hair and dreadlocks infused with wraps and beads.
Thank you so much! So happy with the result
