This updo is a slight variation from our Simple Dread Bun tutorial. First take 3 dreadlocks from each side underneath and make 2 plaits. Leaving the 2 plaits out put the rest of your hair up into a simple dread bun. To create a simple dread bun start to put your hair in a high ponytail but don’t pull the hair all the way through, so it’s doubled up with the ends hanging out.

Dreadlocks with Wispy Ends

Whether you're creating dreadlocks, or trimming exisiting dreadlocks one thing to decide is if you prefer the ends to be blunt or wispy. I've personally had dreadlocks for over 10 years, and in that time I've needed to trim the ends of my dreads a few times to deal with the length and weight of all that hair.

In this blog post I'll explain the process I went through of trimming my dreadlocks and combing out the ends again to create ..read more
