The benefits of running a dreadlock salon

Are you sitting and dreaming of another way of living?
Are you tired to work for someone else, of having a boss and feeling that your job doesn’t give you any value anymore?

I totally understand what you’re feeling, 19 years ago I was in the same situation as you, I had a dream, I wanted to work for myself, I wanted to meet more people that had the same values in life as I have, I wanted to be creative and earn money for doing the work that I was passionate about and I wanted to decide when and how much I wanted to work.

What is inside of dreadlocks?

 

How many times have you heard the story about Bob Marley’s dreadlocks and what they found inside his dreads when he died?

The story is that he had several new beetle species in his dreadlocks when they cut them off (or some kind of insects).
The fact is that Mr Bob did not even have any dreads on his head when he died due to that he was to weak to hold them up.

There are so many different stories that are going around, people usually say that a friend of a friend know a guy or a girl that had a spider living in their dreadlocks, or any other kind of insect.

You might have heard that you use dirt or poo to make dreadlocks? Is there any truth in this?

Simons dreadlock with extensions

 

Simon had been dreaming of getting dreadlocks for the past 14 years, when he was younger his mom was against it but now Simon had grown out his hair and felt now is the right time.

Simon found me thru the internet and decided to take a flight from Kirona in the northern part of sweden to get his dreadlocks made by me.
He wanted his dreadlocks to be about the same length as of his hair so I added human hair extensions for length so that he would get the dreadlocks that he always had been dreaming of. I mixed 3 different shades of brown to create these dreadlock extensions.
From the first dreadlock that I made Simon was super exited and was in ahhhh when I was finished he was so happy and greatfull that I had created the hair of his dreams, he gave me a big hug in the end of the day and walked out with a totally new energy.
