Dreadlock styles may seem super expensive and difficult to maintain, but that’s not the entire truth.
There are several loc styles, from low to high budget, that require little to no maintenance.
Dreadlock styles for men
If you’re a guy who’s thinking of upgrading your hair game, here’s a list of styles you should consider.
Long twisted locs
A cool option to try if you’ve grown out your locs for a while. You might also want to throw in some colour for extra pop.
Cornrow dreads with a side cut
For clean dreadlocks and fresh cut combo that always gets the baddies going.
Mohawk locs with a bun
The thing with mohawk locs is that you can go as wild as you want with the sides. A side cut and parting is always a winner.
Short twisted locs
This is the shorter variation of long twisted locs. A cool choice for those who’re still training their locs.
Jumbo spiky locs
You might have some difficulty sleeping properly, but this is a top-tier style that’ll easily set you apart.
Side-swept short locs with fade
Throw in some dye to the tips, and you just might cause trouble for people in relationships when you step out.
Men can also rock macro locs and look fire in it.
This can last for weeks or months depending on what suits you.
Bob Marley locs
Trying to get into the Jamaican Rastafarian vibe? Here’s your stop, but it’s high maintenance.
Braided locs with ponytail
One cool advantage of having long locs? You can style it into a ponytail.
Blonde spiky locs
It doesn’t even have to be blonde. You can try other interesting colours like honey brown, burgundy, or whatever suits your complexion.
Long blond locs
Just look at this and say it’s not a hot serve. The only downside is you’ll spend all your coins on keeping it clean.
Side-swept spiky locs with a fade
A bold look if you like to do many things with your hair and still keep it clean. Four things going on here: Blonde colour, spiky locs, hard-parting and a fade.
Jombo twisted locs
Unlike the spiky jombo locks that’ll disrupt your sleep, this is a much more convenient option. And you’ll still look like today’s Agege bread.
High-top locs with strands
Another nice option if you want to enjoy a clean cut.
Dreadlock hairstyles for women
Locs are a perfect option if you’re a lady who doesn’t enjoy the weekly run to hair salons. You might spend money and extra hours on maintenance, but will you notice if you only go to the salon once a month? Whether you’ve made a decision or are still considering, here are dreadlock styles that should be on your radar.
