Thinking of getting dreads? The Electric Chair is your Dread  solution. Mandy, Jordan & Brandi are our Dread specialists. They have 25 years combined experience. They prefer to use the crochet/back-combed method as it tends to lock the dreads in better. Here's a few examples of their work. We also do Dread Extensions using synthetic or real hair. (See examples below).

We take dreads out should you grow tired of them. (See before & after below). Our prices for Dreads or Dread maintenance is $75 hourly. Should you want a more precise estimate of how many hours would be involved a consultation is needed. Call (619) 223-1112
