    hey im wondering if any guys do anything with their dreads. I think pig tails look really cute on girl dreadys but i dont really think i could pull off that look lol. Anything you guys do do make them a bit more interesting but not look too girly.

    Umm try decorating them with some fabric? Or making some funky head bands to hold them back with. If you buy a pair of looong socks (you know the ones you can get in funky colours and stripes) they work cool or just cut offs of fabric.

    Also just pulling a few dreads from the front and sides right back and tieing them either by themselfs or with a band (depending on length of the dreads) looks cool

    Or if you tie all your dreads in lots of knotts (if they are kinda short this is) tie a few of them together in a knott at the roots and the ends all stick up in funny directions. I've tied UV braclets into my dreads and done this before when going raving.

    Pony tail the top half of the dreads and leace the rest down.

    tie them all on top of your head like a palm tree :D

    *scratches head* ummmm

    thats alli can think of right now :)

    I have several guy friends with dreads, and they all pull their hair into pigtails on occasion. It's fun, and it makes people do double takes. I love it, I think it proves that they aren't afraid to do what they want. It's not a matter of being able to pull it off.
    My suggestion is to just play with them. Try to do different things with them, you'll find something that you love. When they get longer, you can have a ton of fun with them, especially if you have really thick hair. You can braid them, pull them back, pull them up, wrap them, stuff them, pile them, stack them. I love to put mine right on top of my head. They stick out everywhare, and it's great!
