Dreadlocks for Women
Dreadlocks are more of a non-formal nature but today even exquisite bridal hairstyles with dreadlocks are not a rare thing. Everything depends on how you want to look and what impression you want to make. Here is your inspirational gallery on the topic.
1. Coral Reef Updo

2. Messy Lattice Crown
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!
3. Not Your Grandma’s Locks
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.
4. Elegant Dreadlock Bun Updo
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.
5. Thick Twist Dreadhawk Sculpture

7. Dreadlock Updo with Extensions
Updos are not the first thing most people think of when it comes to dread hairstyles, but they should be! Most dreads can be molded into eye-catching shapes with relative ease. This spiky updo just requires strategic twists and a few hair pins.
8. Candyfloss Pink Woven Dreadlocks
Welcome a cute woven style that looks no less complex than a maze, but the one you can wrap around your head! It’s one of the more difficult styles to master but it’s worth the effort.
9. Fake Twisted Dreadlocks
These small dreads use tightly twisted synthetic hair to create a sleek black mane with bright highlights. For women with thin strands, fake dreads are a great way to get tons of hair. You just need the help of a professional with plenty of hair extensions!
10. Dreadlocks with Wraps, Beads and Braids
Calling all women with dreads who can’t decide on just one style! Give each individual dreadlock its own personality by using different colored dread wraps and beads. Then, take your dreads style one step further by braiding some locks from the top of your hair.
11. Faded Blue to Purple Dreads
This colorful dreadlocked look features electric blue roots washed to pink lengths that are almost colorless at the very ends. Colorful dreadlocks are commonly synthetic, and it a great solution for trying some wild colors.
12. Twisted Dreadlocks Bun and Undercut
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.
13. Tamed Dreadlocks
This is one of those dreadlock hairstyles that are recommended for dreads that need some rejuvenation. Style the top half of your locs as cornrows, and you’ll have a neat front with a crazy back for a perfect balance!
14. Dreadlocks Side-Braid and Undercut
If you have thick hair, it’s worth considering a half dreaded look so you aren’t drowning in dreadlocks. This style has a heavy undercut with just the top section in locks. Add a side plait and you can give this punk look a feminine edge.
15. Navy Blue Spiral Dreads
The spiral dreads are here to showcase that having dreadlocks doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy beautiful curls and waves. This particular style is done with perm rods but you can also use braids, pip cleaner curlers or a curling wand. Don’t forget, dreadlocks can be really versatile!
16. Half Up Dreadlock Braid
Here’s the epitome of noncommittal white girl dreads. When your dreads are not extensions, they are going to live a whole life of their own changing their look as the time passes by and giving you opportunities to experiment with a number of new hairstyles and look each time different.
17. Dreads with Braids
This hairstyle is all about the messy feel and various textures. The hair is made up of thick dreadlocks, some of which have been plaited or twisted. The chunky knitted scarf is also there for a reason – love, love, love the look!
18. Boho Dread Updo
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!
19. Blue Highlight in Dread Half Updo

22. Bright Pink Synthetic Dreadlocks
If you have short hair but want to flaunt long locks, try dreadlock styles that use extensions. Here, fake pink hair has been braided into the roots of the real hair and rolled into faux locs. And, in our opinion, the more different shades, the better!
23. Half Dreaded Bun
This look is a mixture of dreads and messy undone strands, just the right blend of textures for badass styles. A large relaxed bun is the simplest suggestion but it looks fresh and cool, to say the least.
24. Dreadlocks With Undercut
Use the hair from the middle of your head to create a mohawk of dreads. The closely cropped sides and back not only highlight the dreadlocks but also make them appear longer. Choose to leave your bangs loose or dreadlock them too.
25. Wavy Twisted Dreadlocks
