I have just finished creating and updating a new section on the website all about ammendments to procedures and new hygiene practices I will be putting into place while the pandemic is going on. Please check out the link below to see what those changes are. I have also added a page to explain what you can expect duing your appointment over this period until things are able to return to normal.
I am pleased to let you know that I have completed the Barbicide Covid-19 Hygeine course to ensure that I am able so work as safely as possible during these times when I hopefully return to work next month.
I hope that you are safe and well. Its been a very long and tricky few months hasn’t it?
I am very much looking forward to returning to work after July 4th in accordance with goverment guidelines as I have missed you all so much!
I am in the process of formulating a plan on how I can work in a way to keep us as all as safe as possible. Things will be a little different for a while as I will only be able work while my son is at school which will be two days a week. I am feeling into working Saturdays as well, but I have to make sure I have adequate rest days so my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome doesn’t flare up again. The days I wont be working, I will be with my very lively son who needs a lot of attention and lots of outdoor time which I find very tiring. As soon as I know which days my son will be at school I will start contacting everybody that needs to be resheduled to get them booked back in.
I have opened a priority waiting list for people who pay a deposit for work over the next few weeks and I will contact them first as soon as everyone that needs to be resheduled has been.
More updates to follow.
Stay safe and stay well my friends!
To all my wonderful clients,
We find ourselves in strange and worrying times. Being in lockdown means that I am sadly unable to keep your appointments. Have no fear though, you will not loose your deposits.
All deposits are still non-refundable but I am being more flexible on my 14 day rescheduling policy. Because times are so uncertain you will have up to three months to reshedule. If you haven’t resheduled after three months you will need to pay a new deposit.
For those of you that were booked in before my price increase on 8th April 2020 do not worry, you will still pay the original price you were quoted.
As everything is so uncertain at the moment this policy will be reguarly reviewed and updated if necessary.
Take care everyone and please stay inside!
Look after yourselves and look after each other.
Due to the rising costs of living I have decided to raise my prices for the first time in three years.
The new pricing structure starts on 8th April 2020.
All appointments booked after that date will be charged at my new rate.
Any appointments that were already booked in after that date will still be charged at my current rate.
Here is my new pricing structure for maintenence :
Root to tip tidy – £90 for up to 3 ½ hours, then £25 per hour there after
Roots only – £50 – for up to 2 hours, then £25 per hour there after
Epic tidy up* – £110 – for up to 4 hours, then £25 per hour there after

I am really happy to announce that I have started learning a new method of creating and maintaining dreadlocks with Ann-Marie of Seienstyle Dreadlocks in Stockholm.
After years of using the method I currently use to create and maintain and dreadlocks I have been struggling with repetative strain injuryin my wrists and the pain of constantly stabbing my fingers with the crochet hook. If I wanted to have any longevity to my dreadlock career and be able to grow my business further something had to change.
Seienstyle has been on my radar for a while due to the amazing dreadlocks Ann-Marie creates – if you haven’t seen them check out her website www.seienstyle.com or her instagram. Then Ann-Marie started teaching her method online and in person and after a lot of consideration and research I decided to sign up.
I am mainly learning online but the other week I was really lucky and went to Amsterdam for the weekend to do some hands on training with Ann-Marie herself. It was an amazing and inspiring weekend. I have never been in a room with so many other Loctitians or strong business women. I came away with so much new knowledge, not just on how to create and maintain dreadlocks, but also how to run and grow my business.
The new technique I am learning is so gentle on my body and on clients heads. I am so exited to be learning with Ann-Marie and to be able to start implimenting the new techniques I am learning into my daily working life.
I am first and foremost mum to my beautiful son and I work around his needs and my health requirements. Because of this I only work part-time and offer appointments on the following days:
Please bare this in mind when contacting me as it can sometimes take a few days to respond to messages. This is not because I have forgotten about you – I promise……it’s hard at times juggling a small person, work and a long term illness.
Today I have updated my gallery with new images and I have even added captions! I am on a roll!

It has been a while since I have added a new post to my website. I am still here beavering away creating wonderful dreads for equally as wonderful people.
Its been a tough few years for me health wise but things are starting to look up. This means I have more energy to put into getting and keeping my website upto date and career development.
Lots of exciting things have been happening over the last few months in regards to my career development and I will create a new post soon to explain all about it. First of all, I am spending some time updating my website. Dreads ‘n’ Threads has grown and changed a lot since I started it and I feel that its time my website reflected these changes.
Keep your eyes peeled for more posts and updated content.
Peas and love,
I have just tweaked my terms and conditions. Please pop along and check them out.
Many thanks x
