The process

The most important intention of Dread Vibez is to honor your individual dreadlock needs and desires. You and your time are important to me. Just as important as myself and my time. If we respect each others time, let's create dreadlock magic together!

The Process is as follow...

I assume you've already checked out the Price List


A normal root maintenance takes 2-4 hrs. 


If you think you might need more than 4 hrs; perhaps you haven't had maintenance in forever, you need body work, or locks need repair or correction, please send me a few pictures of your hair.

New Install

How much it cost and how long it takes depends on several factors. So I don't accept more than one client per day.

For an estimate, send me:

  •  A few pictures of your hair - in daylight - from different angles.

  •  A couple of inspiration pictures of the loc style you like.

  • Describe your vision to me (full or partial head, colors, length, thickness, blunt or flowy ends etc)

For more information

Temporary Install

A full head installation takes about 3-4 hrs.


Let me know if you are bringing your own dreadlocks or if you want to purchase synthetic dreadlocks from me.


There is a 10 days to 2 month wait time for ordering synthetic dreadlocks.

It is so important to "shop around" for the right artist for you! It is okay if you want to meet and talk before you make a choice.

This is a 30 min appointment - In-person or via phone or Zoom - and we'll discuss all your options and possibilities. 

I don't offer "Free Consultations", because I give you A LOT of info. The $25 non-refundable deposit will count towards your service, if you choose to book with me.

No Strings Attached!


Let's communicate a date and time that works for both our schedules - There is no online booking calendar, all scheduling goes through communicating with me. Once we agree on a time, the deposit deadline required to hold the appointment is 48hrs (no exceptions!) It is your responsibility to honor your commitment, I will not remind you or follow-up before I give that appointment to someone else on the minut after your 48 hrs. expire. 


Make sure you are familiar with the policy regarding Reschedule and Cancellation before you pay the deposit.

Prepare for your appointment...

I will do my part to give you and your dreadlocks the absolute best experience, this is what you ought to do:

The day before your appointment...

I will text you an appointment reminder. PLEASE respond to this text! Simple OK is ok.

If you don't respond, I may assume you won't show up for your appointment and I won't be prepared for you.

Find the Studio...

Please read the directions thoroughly as the studio is in a part of my home in a residential neighborhood with lots of similar looking houses.

I also do travel appointments in Texas a few times a year, for those appointments I will announce where the studio will be located.

After the appointment...

It is a huge honor for me to be chosen to work on your locks. You matter to me and I want to know what your experience with the service I gave you was. If you want something done differently, please don't be afraid to let me know. Dreadlocks are unique and personal and we both learn through experience and communication. 

I would appreciate tremendously if you wanted to share your positive experience with others, reviews and testimonials matter. To thank you for your time taken to write a testimonial, a little gift awaits your next visit.
