Another partial dreads hairstyles is to have your hair smooth on top and dreaded at the back. An under dread style lets you accentuate your locs as much or as little as you like. My client has only got about a quarter of her hair locked but with the wraps, beads and colours of her dreadlock extensions, her look becomes quite prominent.

Two Coloured Dreadlocks

My client loves having different colored dreads but prefers not to dye her hair constantly. With a preference for synthetic dreadlocks extensions, we mix up her look by changing the colour of her half dreadlock extensions from time to time. Life as a dreadlock hairdresser is always varied!

Thin dreadlocks or small dreads particularly suit hair types such as African hair which has low volume but lots of hair. Dreadlock Hairstyles, African Hairstyles, Dreadlocks Pictures, Small Dreads, Partial Dreads, Hair Type, Your Hair, Suit

Somewhere between half dreads and full dreads is this three quarter loc style achieved by having a quarter fade or undercut.

By keeping a long fringe, half dreaded hair can be the best of both worlds. You can tie up the dreads in a headband to showcase your normal hair or sport this hybrid look. Wanting a variation of the ombre appearance, my client had me put in blonde dread extensions to boost her length and some light brown loc extensions to mix the colouring.

With more loose dreads, or partial dreadlocks, fine hair doesn’t look as thin as it would with a standard set of locs. Finding the best dreadlocks hairstyle for you is a combination of choosing the type of look you like and matching this with what suits your hair type.

With the ombre hair style becoming such a trend it is only natural that it made its way into the world of dreadlocks as well. This effect can be achieved by dying part of your hair, either at the roots or ends, or in the case of my client here, having me loc her hair and add blonde dread extensions to contrast her naturally dark brown hair.

Half Dreads & Fringe

Partial dreadlocks can add a softer, more feminine look than full locs. Another benefit to having half dreads is that if you want to look professional - dreadlocks can be hidden under a headband so only your normal hair is exposed.
