A New Home for Raging Roots

As we continue to grow and evolve, we are looking add a THIRD dreadlock artist to our midst and we need MORE space! Raging Roots Studio is looking to expand into our very OWN studio location EXCLUSIVELY for dreadlocks-only! But we're just a little bit short on start-up funds to furnish it; chairs, stations, mirrors, waiting area furniture, signage, etc.! 

Raging Roots Studio started as a one-woman operation run out of Raging Roots' founder and Senior Dreadlock Artist, Amy's condominium under the name "The Dread Queen". What Amy thought would be a good opportunity to offer a niche hair services starting, maintaining, repairing, and extending Caucasian dreadlocks to an underserved market exploded quickly when she moved her business into a local salon. With clients traveling as far as from Colorado, Arizona, and Canada, Raging Roots Studio quickly earned itself a place on the map as THE go-to destination for dreadlock services not only in New England, but in the country!

Within a year of moving Raging Roots Studio to a salon setting, Amy was so overwhelmed with clients clamoring for her unique skills turning silky Caucasian hair into knotty, beautiful dreadlocks that she quit her day job as a dental assistant to lock hair full-time.

Amy went from booking same-week appointments to now having a four month waiting period just to get in to be seen! The most recent development in Raging Root's continued attempt to offer their cilentele a shorter waiting period and the best possible hair experience, is the addition of Dreadlock Artist, Meg.

To help make this dream a reality, we need a minimum of $3500 to get off the ground, but any over would allow us to make it EVEN better!

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
