    When did dreadlocks become popular with hippies? I think dreadlocks are the ultimate hippie hair style, but whenever I see pictures of '60's hippies they never have dreads... why?

    Jamaican influence hadn't begun yet. The late 60's wave was basically white, middle class, Beatle inspired. The late 50's wave was known as beat, also white, colleged class, Kerouac inspired. Jamaican influences arrived in the mid 70's

    dreads came in with bob marley and other jamacan singers. before that, hippies generally wore their hair long, sometimes in braids, ponytails etc.

    My dad loved dreads, and even though he was a white boy;) , he had them back in the 60's, much to the dismay of his family. I had them in the 80's, and dyed each one a different color. I miss my dreads! But, my hair is knee length now, and I'm happy with it. Love men with dreads!
