Dread locks have been a thing since forever or maybe since Bob Marley, Lucky Dube and the other Rastafarians rocked the music scene with their super chilled and outta this world vibe, originally considered thuggish and irresponsible (Nigerian parents still do), the only people who rocked it were musicians and artists in general.
I still remember how Juliana Rancic and the rest of fashion police mocked Zendaya’s faux loc hair to the red carpet, of course she got hit by black twitter in outrage and I’m certain would never ever diss or say anything even the tiniest bit offensive ever again.
But these days, as the world becomes a little more diverse in how we view other people’s culture and it’s acceptance, plus with good-looking stars like The Weekend and Amine are rocking it (chicks dig it), I think its safe to say it’s here for the haul. Now it’s not so strange to see a cute guy in a suit with locs.
And it’s not just the guys, as ladies are making dreads more and more appealing than they have ever been, such that faux loc had to be re-invented as the stand out style of 2017. This year saw Rihanna, Zendaya, Meghan Good, Ciara, Taraji P. Henson, Tyra banks and a host of others jumping on the faux train.
In no particular order here are 5 dread bombshells who would make the most unbelieving atheist cry Rasta man;
Chloe and Halle
Sister songbirds Chloe and Halle have to be first on this list because a look at them would have you screaming Hallelujah, moving to Jamaica and turning completely bohemian. it doesn’t hurt too that they have skin so beautiful and voices that would melt the hardest of hearts.
Ciprian Quann and Tk wonder
The real urban bush babes themselves come next with their impossibly full locs. These sisters are always a delight to watch especially when they cause traffic, yhup because when they cross to the other side you can’t help pausing to catch a glimpse of the twins with the massive hair.
The Dread Bombshell
Though her locs are relatively shorter and less fuller but they aren’t any less as beautiful as the others. Perhaps her skill with makeup make it easier to be the dreaded bombshell that she is, all we know is she definitely is a beauty.
