Kath and Kim have been running Dreadscapes in Melbourne since 2007. They originally met in London where Kim had been working as a professional loctician for over a year, after several years dreading in her home country of Canada. After introducing Kath to the amazing dread ways of the crochet hook she became hooked. They then spent some time dreadlocking back in Kim’s hometome of Vancover, Canada before making the big move south and setting up in Melbourne, Australia.


Kim has over 13 years working professionally as a dreadlocker or ‘loctitian’ and is currently sporting her second set of dreads. Kath has 9 years experience with Dreadscapes and just has the one set which she has loved and learnt about for the past 16 years.
Together we have over 25 years combined experience with dread life and over 20 years experience as professional lockticians –We have worked on thousands of heads and literally tens of thousands of individual dreadlocks.


We live and breathe dreads – and love what we do.


We are a professional and registered business.


The Space: Dread Oasis


We work from home in a relaxing peaceful space with views of our garden. We do not operate like a hair salon with loud music and a mirror stuck in your face. Working in a chilled and comfortable space we like our clients to feel relaxed. When you visit us we can chat, play music or watch films – whatever you like.


We are located in the beautiful Macedon Ranges in Woodend which is about 80 km north west of the CBD and if travelling by public transport we can pick you up from Woodend Train station (V Line)


Our Clients
We have clients who hail from all over the world, from every age and all walks of life. Ranging from school kids to grandmothers, clients include tradies, nurses, students, scientists, musicians, teachers – we even have a client who is a rocket scientist!! At the heart of it all and what brings us together is our love of the dread.

Got my dreads re-attached last weekend. As most people know after having dreads, unless you know people in the know that have had them for years,you don’t know the best method for maintenance, it took me 5 years to get onto someone that knew to use a hook, and I think Dreadscapes have this down pat. Awesome job and 2 days later my head is pain free, all worth it. I’ll definately be coming back in the future and pointing people in the right direction!, oh and that shampoo you sell is great! Jules.
