If this awesome dread hairstyle alone does not impress you, make it stand out from the crowd even more with a splash of color. Mix some chocolate brown color into your head of black hair to stir things up a bit (as if a dread hairstyle needs any more stirring up!). This will certainly give your twisted dreads a more interesting spin.

Get the colored dreads to blend in with the black dreads. Make sure that they’re not just all in one part of the hair, too. Get it on top, at the sides, and at the back. If you want a louder and more eye catching color, you can go ahead and get as creative as you want! (We’re talking red or blue or yellow here!)

We have always wondered what a top knot on dreads would look like. So now, we wonder no more. It’s definitely one kickass hairstyle that we will like to wear someday. If not in this life, then maybe in the next.

The combination of dreads and a top knot is sure to make any person’s toes curl with excitement. It’s double the style and double the sexiness. Sigh, some men just have all the luck.

When you don’t feel like wearing your dreads loose around your shoulders, you can gather up all that gorgeous hair and tie them back in a knot on top of your head. Quick fix for bad hair days.

A dread hairstyle doesn’t require long and heavy hair all the time. Sometimes, a dread hairstyle is short and tight, and even comes with a quiff made of dreads. For this particular dread hairstyle, it’s cut rather short at the sides and at the back. The top hair is long and full, which is actually the hairstyle’s focal point.

We just love how everything looks so gorgeous and well put together. It’s actually a great hairstyle to have for guys who want to cut off the hair for more breathing room, but still keep the dreads in place. It’s certainly a lot lighter compared to other full-length dread hairstyles, but definitely not less stylish or awesome.

When your dreads are long and thick, you have to wear them loud and proud. Let them loose around your shoulders and allow them to breathe. You will look all the more gorgeous for it. Trust us.

What’s great about this dread hairstyle is that it also gives the hair a nice and layered shape. The dreads are long and thick, but they don’t look like they’re raring to fly off from the top of your head. They actually frame the face in a very attractive and flattering way. They look natural and symmetrical, and do not look at all like an ugly wig you can easily buy from eBay.
