As a hair stylist and an artist, I am always looking for fun ways to express creativity through hair as a medium. Dreadlocks can be made instantly with synthetic hair, wool or other fabrics, even string. They can be permanent, or woven into a weft/hairpiece that can be removed easily. As you can see here, dreads vary greatly in style, from hippy to punk rock. No matter which style- THEY DO NOT STINK and are not dirty- unless the person wearing them already is to begin with!
