Dreadlocks Hairstyles for Women

So, you wear “Dreadlocks” in your hair, and you need a more professional or party look? You have come to the right place-we have the ideas and tips to make them happen at home!

These styles all assume medium to long hair. Begin with clean Dreadlocks, following instructions your Hairdresser gave you as to care.

A French Twist like the one seen in the second photo from left above is simple and straightforward, a classic look for the office or a night on the town. Begin by pulling your Dreadlocks back into a ponytail just below the midway point on the back of your head. Start wrapping or rolling hair in one direction, working toward the top of your head. Using either bobby pins or even decorative chop sticks to secure your French Twist. You should use bobby pins every few inches in order to anchor hair. If using chopsticks, you will want to use them in the middle of the roll. Make sure to keep Dreadlocks tucked tightly as you work your way up-when you reach the end, you can either tuck them or make more rolls on your crown-for a fancier design.

Half up- Half down such as the one Pink is wearing in the first photo above left-pull your Dreadlocks back and secure at crown. Let the rest fall down your back. This is a nice style for a fun and flirty, casual feeling.

Another dressy style is the Side Ponytail such as the one worn by Naia Kete, above center. This is a very easy one in which you pull all of your Dreadlocks back, position them over the shoulder you prefer and secure-letting ends fall over your shoulder.

You might also like The Free Form Up do for Dreadlocks as shown in fourth photo from left above, for this interesting style, take two, two- inch sections on each side of head vertically, just above the ear. Clip these forward and out of your way. Pull remaining hair into a ponytail and begin twisting it or braiding it-finally start coiling it on the back of your head in something like a figure eight. Secure with bobby pins or decorative chopsticks. Once that is in place take pins out of the sections you made over your ears-bring those sections around to the back and tie in a single knot over the figure eight bundle you just made. The loose ends can be positioned in an interesting way, or you can tuck them under the bundle.

For a formal occasion, this Traditional Up do is just the ticket-as seen in photo on far right above. This style just needs to be pulled back into a ponytail high on the head and secured with a band. Separate into very small sections ½” to ¾” then you can do coils or loops; put them on rollers or any number of things depending on the volume you are looking for.

    A couple of these pictures are not of dreadlocks. Two pictures are of singles braids and the other picture is of a two strand twist style. Also, the one with Shakira is definitely not dreadlocks. But I get the concept, these styles can be duplicated by someone with actual dreadlocks.

  • Jenna

    I do. I like rasta empresses they’re so beautiful

    I’m getting rid of my dreadlocks, and that means short hair (I’m cutting out the extensions I put in, so I’m not cutting it all off)… I thought it would be really cool to have Chiana’s hairstyle from the show Farscape, but I’m at a loss as to what to tell my stylist in terms of what hairstyles are normally called… anyone know what it’s called? Thanks!

I don’t have a printer to take the picture in to the stylist :( Thanks!
    sorry, for some reason it copied my earlier details… I don’t have a printer to take the pictures to the stylist… which is why I’m looking for the name of the cut :P

  • alberto s

    hey guys I’m a white,blonde girl with blue eyes and I always had a passion for the big,african hair-dos and I was wondering whether I can do my hair like this : http://www.ida.com/images/cms/Image/curls_12.gif ….or do they look good only if you’re african? I so envy curly african girls,they’re so preety…

  • maskills24

  • Salam

    would you date a white woman with dreadlocks? well maintained dreadlocks at that, not sideshow bob looking locks…i have dreadlocks because it is a natural hairstyle, i love the look i dnt want to be looked at as trying to be black or a hippie, because im neither. i also dont want it to hinder me getting a job… any opinions?

  • skillz

    I was born n raised in Africa and moved to Canada about 9 months ago, got a “thick” African accent, (not like Nigerian accent, more Zimbabwean or Zambian) and wanna stay true to my culture. I’m thinking of getting dreadlocks, do you think the accent and dreadlocks will help me seem even more African?

    And ladies, do you find that look attractive, (I will wear normal jeans and clothes of course) I’m tall and kinda handsome and black.

    (I for sure know that women find the Italian, Portuguese and Spanish men attractive, cause of their “swaggers” and accents, does that work with Africans?) please help

    Enough of the stereotypes about women with dreadlocks being dirty… some of us are very high maintenance and well-put together like all other women. Let’s say she kept them clean and gorgeous and like your dream woman, had a beautiful face. Are we absolutely disgusting to you? I am asking this of course because I assume most people here are from the US – in the Caribbean and other places this would be a ridiculous question, since the hairstyle is accepted as beautiful, but I’ve heard many people in the US say they thing locks are disgusting so I’m interested to know.
    Obviously I am speaking about a black woman here. I think white women look crazy with locks.

  • Brody S

    A lot of people say that white people should not have dreadlocks since dreads originated as an African tradition. Well if that is the case should all black woman stop having their hair relaxed straight? My hair is super nappy for a white girl and I never wear it down, so getting dreads is the option besides shaving my head bald. I have just been reading different blogs and forums and I am really sickened by the way society thinks and talks about one another. I am not trying to be black or offend any black people, I am not trying to emulate black culture or history. I am simply choosing a different hairstyle. Jeez.
