Please contact solah for a quote after reading through the details at the top of this page and responding to the questions below.

Here's what the timing looks like after you get a quote and decide to go for it....

How long it takes to receive your custom locks is based on 3 things:

                    1. when you place your order
                    2. if we need to special order hair for you or if we have it in stock
                    3. how many other jobs are on the table once we have everything to                         begin your locks.

Most jobs take between 3 and 8 weeks to complete from the time the hair is secured for your locks.

Your place in line is secured by placing a 50% down payment. Once your payment goes through, your hair is ordered and when your hair arrives, we are able to give you the due date for your job which is 3-8 weeks from the hair arrival. 

Upon the due date, you will receive photos of your completed locks. At this time the other 50% payment is due. Once that payment goes through, we ship your sweet locks to you. 

Then you rock them and send us photos and let us know how happy you are. :)

          already have dreadlocks or plan to lock up

          before taking out and re-installing after a

We created these temporary dreadlock extensions for Gina and shipped them off to the USA. She'll be able to braid them in herself or to enlist the help of a good friend. 

These locks are typically worn for 2-3 months at a time before being removed and re-installed.

“Best decision 
I ever made! Solah is a dread genius! 
Love! Love! 
"You have been so helpful & wonderful to me through this whole process, Solah, really it's been such a blessing, I really do appreciate all your time and love and effort you put into these dreads. You are really good at what you do, so creative and detailed!" 

Here's an example of just how natural 
                      synthetic Blessed Locks extensions can look......
Here's another amazing looking kinky dreadlock transformation...
...unlike our other extensions, these locks are created on the client while she's in the studio. If your hair is kinky, and you're interested in extensions, you'll need to live in Greater Vancouver and visit us for these locks. They are not shipped.
"I Love Love Love my dreads! They always look amazing!! Thanks to Blessed Locks and the beautiful Souls of creation there :-)"

do you already have dreadlocks?

            if YES  how many dreads do you have?
                 AND are you wanting extensions to add length (how many inches?) or volume (how many locks?)
               i)                                          volu 
             if NO in terms of volume, how thick is your hair  
                      or how much of it do you have? 
                      is it thin, medium or thick? 
                      this will give us an idea of how many locks 
                      to create for you.


          If you live in Greater Vancouver area... 
          would you like to pick them up or have us 
          install them for you?

          If you don't live in Vancouver... where would
          we be shipping your dream locks to? (city            necessary for quote)

Some of our clients like to wear braid-in dread extensions which are worn for a few months at a time and don't cause damage to your natural hair. 

Here's what a set of 60 braid-in synthetic extensions looks like.....
Here's another example...
These synthetic extensions were created to add length to the short natural locks we started up for Mark...
1 color perfect match



blunt ends

attached permanently to natural locks for length
Mark's natural locks were started first. We then took measurements and found the hair color that was a perfect match. While his natural locks were setting in, we made the extensions. then we set up a maintenance appointment and an appointment to attach them. This was a big job  with 90 locks in total so it took 2 installation appointments. More often, clients will have about 30-60 natural locks. 


this was one of the first permanent extension jobs we ever did... about 18 years ago!

Interested in a quote?
It's always helpful if you can attach a few photos of your current hair with your email. ;)

Looking forward to seeing your quote request!
