Wedding Dreadlock Hairstyles

If a beautiful dreadlock bun wasn’t show-stopping enough, add an undercut too! This hairstyle is perfect for women who find a full head of dreadlocks is a bit too much. Practicality aside, the half dreaded look is also really, really cool.

Wedding Dreadlock Hairstyles

It’s more a question of curly black hair (which is often tight curls or coils), which is not generally seen as acceptable by white and even many black people. In school, people mocked my hair as “kinky” or “coarse” or even just plain “poofy.” In middle school, a boy told me my braids looked like poop, a comment which was devastating to 12 year old me. I went to an all white school and my natural hair (not to mention my skin, my nose, my lips, and this ass which white people can only dream of having) was mocked into oblivion. By college, I was on the expensive and painful road of regular relaxers (to straighten my hair). Eventually I cut off the relaxed hair, accepted myself for who I am, and started locs. I am thrilled to see styles I can wear my locs in at my wedding because my hair type, whether loc’ed or loose, is not pictured in those manicured, white, curled hairstyles in wedding books and I’d have to straighten my hair to do those looks. It’s super thrilling to see examples of black women not having to lose their beautiful, natural hair just to feel ok about themselves as a bride.

Wedding Dreadlock Hairstyles

Being on an attempt at a natural journey, it’s no wonder that I have considered dreadlocks as a hairstyle. But then again, I’ve heard, more than a hundred times really, how boring they get after a while. Assuming, you don’t have as much freedom to play with weaves, extensions, relaxed, cropped and all other different hairstyles, some people are bound to feel stuck to wearing the same style every damn time. First of all, almost everyone hates being restricted to the same style over long periods. Second of all, that is entirely false and mythical. I have seen locked sisters rock the most unexpected and innovative styles that make me want to wear my nappy hair in locks. If you are one of those who is running out of ideas on how to wear your dreadlocks or if you want to start keeping them, here’s a post to inspire you. Here’s a tonne of stunning ladies who I just had to make another list about. While you’re at it, find out how to maintain your dreadlocks. But first, let’s get into these warloc’d beauties:

If you want to try different types of dreads hairstyles then this style will let you do that. The tresses are groomed in dreadlocks of different sizes and textures. The combination of large, thick, natural dreadlocks with salon-styled and braided dreadlocks looks great.

Dreadlocks hairstyles have evolved over the years. This is an intricate-looking way to tame those frizzies at the nape of your neck, while creating a lattice of long dreadlocks that lead to the high, messy blonde bun. Wear anywhere, especially when you want to heat things up!

Red dreads are smoothed and tucked up, creating a space to feature those colorful blooms. Dreading your hair doesn’t mean you have to look unkempt! In fact, you can look very elegant! This updo is done like a Gibson tuck, only with dreads. And, at the same time, it can be associated with Japanese Geishas’ pinned up hairstyles featuring a sleek curve at the nape of the neck.

This style is very simple, yet the accessories dress it up, offering you one of the most versatile hairstyles for dreads out there. As long as the scarf wraps around the base of your bun a few times, you can accentuate it with flowers or other hair clips from your collection. Beads finish off the look perfectly.

Super chunky dreadlocks are perfect for updos and experimental hairstyles. Start at the front of your hair and twist the dreadlocks backwards. It doesn’t have to be neat either, the messier the hair, the more boho chic it looks!

Hairstyles for dreads can also come with a soft ombre effect. These tightly twisted locks are flawless in color, texture and length. As this technique uses hair extensions, it’s up to you how long or how colorful you want to go!
