If anyone knows of a good directory that lists salons who offer dreadlocking services, please post it in the comments of this post. I will included it – many people have requested this.

Thanks!

  1. Hair Police in Minneapolis is awesome for dread perms, maintenance, and extensions. I had my dreads started and maintained by Satya for more than 5 years. However, all of their stylists are trained in dreads.

    • There is a salon called “Salon Sugar” located in Philadelphia that does an amazing job with dreadlocks. I live in Baltimore Maryland and I traveled all the way there to get mine done. They are such nice people also and very professional. It is definitely worth the time and effort it takes to get there.

There are a number of stylists who are ALL talented but I have been going to Lorin (so ask for her if you wish). Good luck!
