Note: Divine Dreadlocks are currently not accepting customers for those seeking to get dreads made due to Ema's travel to Ecuador. You can always try one of our courses to learn the basics yourself or contact one of our trained and certified Locticians by heading to our Locticians Directory.

At DIVINE DREADLOCKS, Ema creates beautiful strong, seamless dreadlock extensions by phone consult and appointment only.
Why wait for your hair to grow just to have long locks? If you have short hair and want some instant long dreadlocks then real hair dreadlock extensions are perfect. These are locked and joined to be permanent, but like all dreads, they can be cut or removed.
Dreadlock extensions are highly recommended for people with hair 8-20cm long. At least 8 cm is necessary to ensure a super firm join.
After a phone and email consultation and viewing photos of your hair, we colour match and order the hair extensions from high quality ethical suppliers. Full payment for the hair extensions must be received first.
The hair extensions are then locked into dread extensions off the head to reduce the time that the client needs to be present. Once ready, the client comes to get them joined to their dreads.
If a client needs new dreads locked, or their dreads maintained first then the process may need to be done over 2 appointments.
If the client has short hair (eg: up to 20cm or chin length) then their hair can be dreaded and extensions joined in one sitting.
This takes about 7-10 hours, depending on the number of dreads.
SHORT= $12 each. This will add about 20cm more length to existing or new dreads.
MEDIUM = $15 each. This will add about 30cm more length to existing or new dreads.
LONG = $20 each. This will add about 50cm more length to existing or new dreads.
(Please note, there has to be an overlap of your hair/dread and the extension to ensure a strong & permanent join. This is about 3 cm)
Add the total cost of your dread extensions plus the estimated hair locking and joining time to get the overall total cost.
For example: Someone with a lot of fairly thick hair would need 50 dreadlock extensions (cost $600 short, $750 medium, $1000 long). When joined to jawline length hair (approximately 15-20cm long) it would take 10 hours to lock clients existing hair and to join extensions = (10hrs x $65 = $650).
So the total cost of thick chin length hair adding short extensions would be $1100 all inclusive. This is almost half the price of standard hairdressing or dreadlock "salons"!
We make an effort to source only ethical hair and always use 100% human hair, not synthetic. We do not not stock hair as it is all custom ordered for you. Your hair extensions will be colour matched after viewing your hair/dreads via personal consult or emailed photos.
A deposit for the hair and extension locking must be paid via direct debit or PayPal prior to ordering the hair. (This may be between $240 & $1000 depending on how many dreads you're getting). This is non-refundable as we cannot sell your dreads to anyone else, so a consultation is very important and vital to ensure a booking.
Fill out the booking form if you wish to book in to get dread extensions. You must book at least 2 months in advance and there may be a wait of up to 6 months. Ema must see your hair or dreads first, either in person or from a good photo sent via email, to work out how thin or thick to make each dread extension and how many dreads you need.
Ema takes a lot of pride in being one of Australia's most thorough dreadlock artists. The join of her extensions (with a 'spot on' colour match) is virtually seamless & they're made to stay joined forever using a super strong 6 cm overlapped interlocking method.
Please note: on rare occasions due to difference in hair type between the client's real hair & extension hair, the odd extension can fall out (it also depends on the client's lifestyle and what they put their dreads go through). There is a 95% chance this WON'T happen at all, but we can't guarantee it. If it does happen without reason, keep the dread and we will re-join it for free. If it has been messed with, over washed, conditioned or pulled there will be the usual hourly rates charge to rejoin it.
All hair locked into extensions must be paid for even if the client changes their mind and decides they don't want them joined. Therefore it is best to be 100% sure before going ahead.
