This service is for the installation of temporary, synthetic dreadlock extensions that are braided into “normal”, brushable hair or otherwise tied into natural dreadlocks. They are a great way to get the look of dreadlocks without the commitment, and can be used to add extra volume, color, or style to pre-existing natural dreadlocks.
Currently we offer two different installation methods:
Braid Install –
Extensions are installed by either a braid OR using the “blanket stitch”. (Blanket stitch is better suited for when clients have very long hair.
Braid & Wrap Install –
Extensions are installed either with the braid or blanket stitch method, but additionally hair is wrapped around the visible natural hair. This is best suited for twisted-style dreads to minimize the appearance of the client’s natural hair.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time Raging Roots Studio is no longer offering temp installs as a service. Thank you for your understanding!
We also encourage folks to read our Policies page before contacting or making an appointment with us.
