    For 1, I think that looks completely ridiculous. Second, that looks to be his sideburns. I trim my sideburns and still have a full head of dreads.

    Side burns on the face, dreadlocks on the head. Not sure what you are asking...

    I have to agree I think it looks ridiculous too. It made me laugh. That's definitely his sideburns though.

    Still, whatever floats your boat.....

  6. Looks like you'd do it by not dreading the half an inch around your face and then just shave.

    Are your bangs/hair line dreaded up, is that your problem? Not sure if you'd want to risk removing any dreads to achieve the style, it could go awry. Probably depend on the size of your hair line dreads and how badly you want the look. :)

    if your hair is already locked by your hair line, trying to do this will probably make an uneven mess.

    You would probably have to ask someone with similar hair type to get an idea how that look is achieved. I would assume Lil Wayne just trims off the excess that is not dreaded into the larger locs, but there's no way to be sure. If you're just wanting to clean up the edges, sure you can have it done at a hair salon for a couple bucks, but there's no guarantee it's gonna look exactly like his. I'm all for giving things like this a whirl, though. If YOU think it looks dumb, just grow it back out. For me it only takes a couple weeks to regrow hair fuck-ups. Don't worry what everyone else thinks. I find negativity to be a natural response from people who lack understanding.

    I know girls who love when guys do that...but they are also the girls who like the thin, overdone dreads of pretty boys.

    If you wanna look like a pretty boy who goes to the salon every week to look presentable, then by all means go for it.

    two showers a day seems like a waste of water to me..... :confused:

    To be a smartass, you can't really waste water.

    But I do know what you mean and agree.

    You don't need to shower as much as society accepts.

    i average 3 showers a week, so 2 a day seems a bit much to me anyway..
