Lifestyle Plaza

The Lifestyle Plaza gives you the opportunity to complete your outfit, or just relax for a bit. A moment of peace and quiet during the bustle of a festival. Here you'll find a bit of me-time. Use it well!

Hats 'n Dreads

Looking for a complete hair metamorphosis? Or looking for something that completes your outfit? Visit Hats 'n Dreads for expert advise and a huge choice of wooldreads in all colours and sizes.

Our wooldreads are made of 100% wool, a wonderful material that blends perfectly with your own hair. They will be braided in, so whenever you feel like something else, they are easily removed. A head full or just a few dreads as a nice detail, it defines your style: wild and free, viking, dark romance or happy-go-lucky colourful. 
You can wash them like you wash your own hair, so don't limit yourself: swimming, skydiving and headbanging: everything is better with dreads!

You can also come to us if you're looking for awesome braiding hairdo's (with and without dreads). From viking breads to a romantic updo. And don't forget to check our extensive bead collection for the finishing touch.
