To have unruly hair is to indicate …..

“To have unruly hair is to indicate a separation from conventional society, a sign of someone who flouts the rules, whose ideas are different from the norm and whose long hair is a symbol of liberation from the constraints of society. This is not a recent symptom of societal changes but predates the time when people wore flowers in their hair in the 1960’s and 70’s. Traditionally, witches and wizards had unruly and disheveled hair and lived apart from their neighbours, as did the hermit, whose long robe and tangled hair are an archetypal uniform. The ‘mad professor’ who teeters between genius and insanity is given away by his hair, which stands on end.”

“Our hair is a symbol of our individuality, and to make someone cut or shave his hair is to wield power over that person”

Just a few heads I’ve done this year.

Such a busy year, meeting so many inspiring and interesting people, who are either, maintaining their maturing locks or who have decided to begin the hair locking journey. Thank you for making that choice to have your locks croched by me.  Everyone a pleasure, everyone a personal interaction and an exchange of energy and everyone, individual, diverse and mind expanding.

Important Fee Notice

I’d like to begin with saying a huge thank you to everyone who has trusted me with their JataDread journey.  I am sorry that I have to do this but my hourly rate will be increasing to £20 as off 1st January 2018.  I don’t like having to do this but my study fees have also increased and I use all the money I earn from locking hair to pay for my Yoga studies.  I hope you all understand.

My Jatalocks 

Just washed them, they feel lovely. Tomorrow, I’ll do some maintenance, parting, matt roots and hand rolling. I’ll do them all again just before the festive break, when I’ll spend time tidying them up.
