Dreadlock Styles

The possibilities are endless!

Here you will find easy steps for creating many different lock styles, including tutorials from members of our own Knotty family (see page bottom to show us yours). Or, get designing, and submit your own style photos to our Lock Styling Ideas Gallery!

Don't forget to finish off with a little Knotty Boy Tropical Tightening Gel or Dread Wax to smooth frizzies and hold that new super 'do in place, without flakey, gummy buildup.

Please note: If you're looking for photos of different types of dreads, please visit our Dreadlock Gallery to see thousands of locks in all hair types.
