ABOUT OUR DREADS

 

My dreads are entirely customisable, from the amount you require, the colours and length, right down to beads and embellishments 
Dreads can be created in pretty much any colour, or colour combination of the rainbow! I am always more than happy to colour match or provide an up to date colour chart direct from my supplier.
Also, I work with various dread textures, smooth sealed being my speciality, but crochet and textured are also totally possible.
Dreads are made from a synthetic plastic called Kanekalon, so nothing that is from real people or sourced from anywhere odd.
I backcomb by hand (none of this machine made stuff), and no nasty glues or anything weird are used when I make your locks, just the pure magic of steam sealing.
I do use other materials for embellishments, usually cotton thread, spun wools, wooden, metal, glass and plastic beads.

I am more than happy to ship worldwide, as a lot of my previous clients choose to either install their new locks themselves, or have someone who is local to them who is able to help them with their installation.

Embellishments
I can provide a variety of embellishments to your dreads, either to compliment or contrast against the colours of the dreads themselves. Usually I choose to compliment with colours that will match, or will look aesthetically pleasing with embroidery and cotton thread wraps and beads (wooden, silver or plastic - depending on my stock available - but don't worry! I will ensure that they look superb!).

Please mention at the point of ordering if you would like embellishments.

Early Completions, No Shows and Holding Dreads
Sometimes I am able to complete an order before the approximate completion time that was stated at the time of an order being placed. In this circumstance I would be more than happy to offer an earlier install or postage date if possible.

On the flipside, If a client is unable to attend their install date or has to delay their final payment without booking an alternative appointment within a reasonable time, I will hold their dreads for a maximum of 6 weeks until they will be advertised as a premade set, sold on and any deposits corresponding to that set will be lost.

If you are unable to attend an install appointment, please let me know ASAP as the time could be offered to another client or I could make alternative plans.
If you do not show for an appointment, one follow up message will be sent to reschedule. If this follow up message is again ignored, any deposits made to the service booked (dread tidy/custom dread set etc) will be lost and any request for my services again in the future may be denied due to unreliability.

About Me.
From an early age, arts and crafts have always been of interest to myself, and inspirations from everything from colour combinations, textures and different forms all influenced my creations throughout my school years and into my A Level Art and Design work.
Once I started to explore the different forms of creativity that can be used to express my personality and appearance, I discovered the art of synthetic dreadlocks. I hired the skills of a local stylist, who transformed my already coloured and chopped hair into a superb  'do with vibrant colours, volume and, well, it was overflowing with creative goodness! I was hooked! After numerous visits to the stylist, I felt that I needed to try this skill out for myself. This proved to be the start of a very special venture.


Soon I was proudly wearing my own creations, being stopped in the street by people who were intrigued by the detail and artistry that had gone into my 'locks, and receiving more compliments as each day went by. Soon after offering my skills to my close friends and acquaintances, I decided to expand into a full time business. Initially my work was promoted solely via word of mouth, but after massive encouragement from my clients, decided to promote more openly and my Facebook page was born, later followed by my website and Instagram.


My online self promotions as model Neechee Neko and my secondary career as a tattoo artist under the name Emily Lovebird Art, have helped to promote my creations, and attracted a lot of attention from characters from all different scenes and occupations.

Now my creations have been shipped all over the world, and are proudly worn by folks wanting to express their individual styles and personalities.
