How much would you expect to pay to have dreads done by a professional, someone who is experienced with beginning dreads? Or how much have you charged or paid if you've got experience with this?
Also, how would you usually go about finding someone who's experienced with dreads? I get the impression that salons and other professional hair places are usually not the place to go to... I'm in the Portland area, so if anyone can recommend a place or person in that area, it would really be appreciated.
I cut my first set off because they had a lot of problems and I'm rather sure that they were related to not being formed well to begin with... so I want to find someone who knows what they're doing next time.
