Hair stylists who perform dreadlock services are also known as loctitians. Methods used to create dreadlocks vary depending on the stylist and the client's hair, as different types of hair require different techniques. Stylists can form dreads naturally or perm the hair specifically for dreadlocks. Since dreadlocks take time to grow, some stylists offer synthetic dreadlocks, which are pre-dreaded hair extensions. The client must have the synthetic dreadlocks adjusted as the hair grows.
