HISTORY

HOW WE BEGAN

It was all a dream…she used to read Word Up magazine….

Our story started with the simple dream of one woman and a sewing needle. Mobile hair-stylist and self-confessed “weaveologist”, our creator and CEO Aaisha Knights was driven to create Dream Tresses by popular demand from her clients and online following.

As a regular contributor to various Black hair care forums  since the early Noughties (i.e. BlackHairMedia.com, LongHairCareForum, Hairlista Hair Community and Fotki pages), Aaisha has sourced  high quality hair extensions for her own personal use for many, many years. Most recently, after countless  queries from those who had seen the quality and variety of her hair in person and online, she realised that there was  a growing need in the UK and Europe for the kind of  quality hair that she took for granted; and so Dream Tresses was born.

Our mission is to be a “one stop shop” for Virgin and Remy 100% high-quality human hair extensions, wigs, closures, custom wig-making services and weave installing that caters to all hair textures.  Our customers come from a wide-range of backgrounds from  Afro-Caribbean to European so in essence, we are an equal opportunities establishment! Thank you for stopping by.
