About Me

Hi, I’m Ashleigh and Locked in Dreads is my baby!
Growing up I had a awesome mum that juggled full time work while raising three full on children, and then 13 years later decided to complete our family with another two brothers. In my teens I became an independent teenager and wanted to take life on myself. A bit more than the average teen though.
When I turned 17 I left home and jumped from job to job for a couple of years. My self-confidence, morals and values were challenged and I sank quite low in myself. I hit rock bottom.
There was a light that came through at this time which gave me direction and hope. Someone I knew got dreadlocks and I fell in love with the look and freedom that they gave her. It was then I decided I wanted to give people the feeling of confidence and freedom to be who they want to be. I started to take control of my life. I decided to that I would become a hairdresser so I could properly look after and treat peoples hair while having a thorough knowledge on what i was doing with the intention of creating amazing dreadlocks. AND I AM FINALLY THERE.
It has taken years of studying and working hard on myself to build up my confidence but with the support of my mum dad and grandma I have been able to take the necessary steps I needed to to get to where I am today. Through the years of training and building myself back up I am the person I need to be to support others in their dreadlocks journey with confidence, freedom and success.
I cannot wait to meet all of you amazing people and be a part of your journey.
