Dreadshop, something special for 15 years!

Renate Meijnders established dreadwinkel.nl - the predecessor of what would later become Dreadshop - in 2004 after being unable to find attractive, affordable dreadlocks online. The motto then is the same as it is now: the standards for our dreads are high, but we think it’s equally important that they remain affordable for our customers. Reliability and a high degree of good, fast service are other core values that Dreadshop pursues. Our passion does the rest.

What began as a hobby in an attic room three stories high back in Amsterdam fifteen years ago has grown into a company with 11 employees that has been the European market for a number of years. Customers around the world wear our dreads and are able to find everything they need for their look in our wide product range. Your Hair, Our Passion!

CEO (Chief Executive Officer)

The slogan “Your hair, our passion” definitely applies to me! With love and passion my “Dreads” hobby has grown into a company that I am very proud of! The hobby began in 2001 and after 3 years of gaining knowledge and expertise I officially founded Dreadshop in 2004. In all the years that have followed I still feel that I’ve made my hobby into my job and what could be better than that!?



CM (Chief Manager)

As Renate’s sister I started out as a sample model so I have worn many different types of dreads! Because Dreadshop continued to grow I also began working for Dreadshop and put dreads on clients in our salon. Seeing so many happy and satisfied clients leave our salon makes this work so much fun! The company has grown so much in the past three years that my work as a general staffer has grown into Chief Manager. This has made me an even more important key to this company!




I work at Dreadshop as jack-of-all-trades (I do a bit of everything) since 2015, and enjoy it very much! I apply Synthetic Dreads, help out with applying Real Dreads and I handle some aspects of the administrative work.The work is very diverse which  makes every day different.By now, I’m dread-crazy as well and I get inspired from time to time, by hairstyles from customers.In short, I’m completely at home here, but how could I not be? With such a great team!
