Option 1: Partial dreads or half dreads. Half head dreadlocks can be done with either shaving an undercut or leaving some of your natural hair.
Option 2: Dreads on bottom half of hair. Partial dreads underneath. This style suits people who want to retain a more professional look at work or who like the flexibility of having natural hair or locs depending on their mood.
Option 3: Partial dread extensions. Partial synthetic dreads. Partial dreadlocks might be your preferred style but you’re after the extra length that dreadlock extensions offer.
Option 4: Single dreadlock. Getting one single dreadlock suits people who want to get a feel for dreads. This option is ideal for people after a temporary bit of flair as it can more easily be brushed out than full dreadlocks.
One way to half dread hair is to leave the top of your hair natural and just have dreadlocks at the back of your head.
The alternative option is to have a blend of dreads and natural hair.
Having just the bottom third of the back of her hair dreaded allowed my client to achieve this unique look.
These dreads can be worn loosely or tied in a ponytail. Letting out her hair allows the locs to be covered up if desired.
