This lady is a very talented, friendly person who is always a joy to talk to and be in the company of when you have your locks done. Go on! Take the step and get them done peeps, you won't regret it. She will be my permanent stylist from now on and I hope to have a few real ones mixed in very soon." Suzanne. S

"I had my first dreads ever installed by Emily at Lovebird Locks and I love them! I was so sick of constantly having root regrowth showing in my hair, so after a consulatation with Emily, she helped to come up with a set that includes my natural colour and will help to blend in with my hair as it grows through.
