Dreadmaker Directory: Europe

Here on Lazydreads.com I try to provide all the tools necessary to allow anyone to start dreadlocks. For some people this means guides and video tutorials, but for others it comes in the form of the ability to connect with experienced dreadlock makers in their area.

Starting dreadlocks, especially for the first time, can be quite a scary endeavour and some people prefer the comfort of having the process started by someone who has experience. Below you will find a list of dreadmakers from around the world, along with the methods they use, their level of experience and their contact details.

The information on this page has been provided by the dreadmakers. While I try my best to only include appropriate entries it is up to you to make sure that the dreadmaker you choose is capable of providing the assistance which you are looking for - it's your hair, make sure you're 100% happy with what you're getting BEFORE you move forward. For more information you may wish to check my Salon Vs Homemade video.
