The Textured Dreadlock Updo

Posted on: June 5th, 2015

Check out this recreation by current Tricoci University student, Jeannette Chavez of an updo that she created and was recently featured on Modern Salon. You’ll definitely need to keep your Redken styling products by your side because this updo has everything… volume, teasing, twisting, pinning, and lots of crimping. If you’re looking for a new updo to add to your wedding and prom toolkit, then this one is for you.

Jeanette Chavez worked at the Mario Tricoci Salon in Bloomingdale for about 4 years.  Jeanette loved being a part of such an artistic atmosphere, watching the stylists work and seeing the transformations from start to finish.  She left the salon to pursue a different career path, and realized that her heart wasn’t in her work.  She went back to the salon and enrolled in school soon after. Jeanette loves that she’s able to express her creativity through her work, and she’s happy to be a part of an environment that supports her passion.
