Clip in Dreads


This week some new clip in accent dreads made their way to the Black Sunshine shop!


Clip in dreads are a quick and easy way to brighten up your natural hair with zero commitment!

The dreads are mounted onto weft clips. So just clip these into the underside of your hair so the dreads will peak through your natural hair to add texture and colour :D It takes just seconds to clip on or out.


More clip in dread colours will be coming to the shop soon!

Mai Agerlin

A couple of months ago  was lucky enough to work with the wonderful model and artist, Mai Agerlin, She requested dreads in greys, starting with a light silvery grey to match her natural hair.


This was one of my favorite sets I  have ever made, I love the grey gradient! And Mai wears them beautifully. 




You can find more of Mais photos on Facebook and Tumblr
Horns from Nevermora

Mai and I will be collaborating again soon stay tuned for more stunning photos!

Peacock Colours

One of my most recent dread creations was inspired by this beautiful peacock image I found over on Pinterest.
Peacock Print by Brian Stevens
I love the dark shades of blue and purple against the almost neon green and turquoise. So I used several shades of blues, purples and a neon green to create the dread set.


This set is made up of blends, transitionals and splashes plus there are a few chunky knotty dreads along with my usual crochet dread style to create lots of texture.


I will be making more photo inspired dread sets in the near future! Please feel free to check out my colour inspiration board over on Pinterest HERE and let me know if there any images you would like see transformed into dreads :)
