You can find me in Whanganui 




Hi I'm Leaf, creator of Twisted Roots

I'm a dreadlock and jewellery maker based in Whanganui, New Zealand. It has been such an honour studying under one of the world's greatest locticians, Ann-Marie Christell of Seienstyle, completing my training at the beginning of 2021.
You will love your visit to my rural studio, just 5 minutes out of town, on our off grid piece of paradise, where we’re growing most of our own food and exploring with permaculture design. We are in the early stages of setting up our own wee village with some beautiful humans and have lots of good energy to share around.
Feel free to explore the gardens, hang out with the animals, and just enjoy the atmosphere!
I’ve had dreadlocks for over half my life now and it’s drawn people and experiences to me in such a beautiful way. I find them such an incredible expression of creativity and solidarity with like-minded people.
At Twisted Roots, I can offer you all things dreadlock related. If you’re after a single loc, a full new set, maintenance or extensions – I can help. I also stock a wide range of handcrafted dreadlock jewellery and decorations.
Please get in touch to talk dreadlocks, I'd love to help you make your dread dreams reality! 

Services- haircuts (specializing in curly hair and short cuts), color, natural dreadlock installation, maintenance, and synth and human hair extensions, dreadlock deep cleaning, dreadlock color, kids cuts, dreadlock special event styling
