Education: I've been a cosmetologist since October 2013. I've been crafting different types of dreadlocks for 7 years.

So I discovered the joys of working with Wool/any other feltable fibers, and I never looked back! I love felting as an art, and I love dreadlocks.

Dread Love

About: There’s nothing quite like the feeling that I get when a client comes to me and is dissatisfied with their hair, whether it’s the color, cut or dreads that are not well done, and I get to fix it for them. When you can fix someone’s hair, you help to repair their self esteem, and I am so blessed to be able to help people on their path to feeling good about themselves.
At Dread Love, I offer a very unique and comfortable experience. You get one on one, private, judgement free time with absolutely no attitude, where I will give you the locks, colour or cut of your dreams.
My space is full of color and positivity, and I love getting to know new people as well as dishing gossip with regular clients. I have almost 15 years of experience as a hairstylist and loctician.

We offer: Dreadlock services, new dreadlocks, dreadlock maintenance, dreadlock extensions and dreadlock extenders, synthetic dreadlocks, dreadlock color, dreadlock wraps, Wool and Alpaca dreadlocks, baldness bridging for dreadlocks, baldness integration systems for dreadlocks and dreadlock updos.

Where? 33 Brookfield street, lower level, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
We are interested in traveling, and have worked doing dreadlocks in Helsinki, Finland as well as Moncton, New Brunswick Canada and Toronto, Ontario Canada. Near future dreadlock travel plans include San Francisco California, U.S.A.

Education: Certified cosmetologist, graduated from Chez Bernard Beauty Academy in 2002. 15 years of dreadlock experience. Instructor and educator for Knotty Boy Dreadlock Education. Color courses with Wella, Schwartzkopf, Elumen and Goldwell. Graduated from the Toronto Hair Extension Academy learning fusion extensions, weave extensions, and bonded weave extensions. Graduated from the Schwartzkopf Academy Toronto in 2003 with a diploma in Multicultural Styling, including weave extensions, cornrowing and braided extensions. Owner of Knot Just Dreads from 2008 until closing it's doors 2016. Current owner of Dread Love. Graduated in 2004 from Vintage and Period Hairstyling class taught by celebrity hairstylist Tyler Colton who has worked with Hollywood celebrities such as Lana Del Rey, Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Swank and Charlize Theron. Self taught bridging technique. Bridging is a technique that I developde to cover up and camouflage baldness. This technique makes a sparse head of dreads thick and beautiful, all naturally. I've also designed a type of semi permanent integration piece to help with baldness as well. This piece in for those with very curly/nappy hair who are balding on top. It looks 100% natural and feels very light. It is permanent in a similar way that weave extensions are permanent.
