Happy Holidays!

No matter what you celebrate, I hope your holiday season was relaxing and fun.

With that being said, we are back in the office again after our holiday celebrations. If you’ve been waiting for a response from us, we will be working our way through inquires over the next couple day’s. Seems a few people wanted dreadlocks for Christmas! 🙂

Looking forward to working with you all again this 2020!

We DONOT “crochet”

Just to clarify, we don’t do any “crocheting” of dreads. We use a small tool and weave your hair back into place using a technique we developed in-house.

“Crochet” is such a loose term and is varies from stylist to stylist. There is no “crochet method” other than simply using a crochet hook. The term “crochet” had even been applied to techniques done with a latch hook.

With that said, when you come here you are getting The Wild by Design method not “the crochet method.” We don’t retwist, backcomb, twist & rip, crochet, felt, or interlock. We also don’t use any products other than witch hazel during the process.

The Season is fast approaching

Winter and the holiday season is quickly approaching, and we’d like you to let us help you make your holiday season a beautiful one.

Make sure to pre-book your holiday appointments in advance to save the hassle and heartache of trying to squeeze in before the New Year.

Our busiest times of the year are October-January*, so snag your appointment before they are all gone.

*your patience is appreciated as it can take longer than usual for inquiries to be processed during that time.

Back to it

Thank you all for your well wishes while we were out celebrating our first wedding anniversary! It was a lot of fun, but I am happy to be back.

We are working to get through the emails that have come in while we were away, and should have the lot sorted either today or tomorrow.

As always, we appreciate your loyalty and your continued interest in our unique method.

Forgot an Update

Hey everyone! I totally forgot to mention that we are definitely back in the office since our trip out east. We’ve gotten all caught up on emails, so if you are still awaiting a response please send us another message.

I love technology when it works, but it is a pain in my arse when it doesn’t.

Much love

Dr. Bronner’s is NOT dreadlock safe!

Dr. Bronner’s uses a process called Super Fatting. Super Fatting is a process where additional oils/fats are added after the saponification process. In order to be deemed Dreadlock Safe, 100% of the ingredients need to be saponified (made water soluble). Otherwise, the fats and oils get trapped in the loc in the form of residue and build up.

There is a list of Tested Safe shampoos here in a previous post and on our IG story highlights:

When in doubt wash scalp & locs with Bakings Soda, rinse BS out, rinse again with a 1:4 Apple Cider Vinegar/Water mix, then rinse AGAIN, thoroughly, with cool, clean water.

Inclement Weather & Last minute openings

Good morning everyone,

The weather has been pretty bad. We have gotten dumped with snow over the past week and it is due to continue throughout this week. That being said, we ARE NOT closed, but we are having issues booking appointments.

If you are willing/able to drive up and be on time in the snow, please text or email us ASAP and we can get you in on one of our upcoming cancelation spots.

The weather forecasters do a decent enough job these days that weather isn’t really a reason to miss your appointment. Please plan slower routes and give yourself adequate time to get here. Remember, if it usually takes you about 40min to get here, plan for 80min. If you arrive early, there are tons of great spots to check out right up the road to keep you occupied till your appointment.

Be safe and well!

I’m sorry if I am not able to reply to emails fast enough for everyone or if I am difficult to reach, but I am just one person and I do have a family.

I try very hard to give 100% to each client that comes through my door. Which means that I don’t answer emails/calls while I’m with a client. That only gives me about 2 days a week to answer emails and book appointments. That also means that I work 7 days a week.

Also, if you tell me you are in no hurry, I WILL take that to heart and prioritize other people who are in a time crunch.

Please try to understand.

Thank you so much 🙏🏼
