Pinch Braid Maintenance for SE Dreadlocks

Pinch braid dreadlocks are a technique that was pioneered by Sonia5 of Hairpolice in the late 90's.  This style of application uses a simple base braid to tie in dreadlocks and natural loose hair.

Jonquil (one of our pilot instructor students) is having her hair maintained by Mandie (one of our cosmetology pilot students) at Modified Beauty Academy.

Taking a closer look, you can see the loop of the synthetic dreadlock is bound over the natural hair.  This creates a small braid at it's base and leaving the natural hair loose to create loft and and added dimension of texture.

Jonquil (shown) created these dreadlocks using 36" ShapeShifter in Invasion, Red Auburn and Mahogany.  She further blended in human hair extensions in #33 Mahogany to create wispy tendrils throughout.  

This style took about an hour to install, and will need to be maintained every two months.

Adorbs!  If you'd like to make an appointment with Jonquil for this service, she is taking new clients.  You can contact her directly at
