Hi, I'm Ben.  I've loved working with dreads ever since I got mine back in 2009.  Over the years I've picked up how to make them and keep them looking awesome.  Give me a shout if you have any questions or want to book an appointment.



To book an appointment, contact me by email (ben@capitaldreads.com) and let me know what you would like to have done. A picture of your hair would be useful, but not required. Feel free to ask any questions. We can then work out a time that works for both of us.


Currently I am limited to evenings and weekends, but I will do my best to accommodate your schedule.


  • Know that appointments can sometimes take longer than expected
  • Have a clear idea of what you would like to have done beforehand
  • Send me pictures of your hair if you would like a better estimate
  • Have clean, dry hair that has been washed within the past 24 hours
  • For longer appointments, make sure to set aside enough time not to be rushed
  • I have a collection of TV and movies, but feel free to bring your own entertainment


I am conveniently located in Centretown. Close to major bus routes and city parking. If you would like for me to come to you, that could be arranged depending on the location.
