Hi there, everyone!

I just started in on dreading my hair--so I know they're still very loose and fuzztastic (Oh, Jersey summers, it's like pea soup every day) but I was quite excited so I thought I'd share. They're only a couple days old, and any tips on getting them looking good is appreciated.

Hahaha, my boss didn't even blink an eye about them--I think he was just glad I didn't come in with big ass gay pride flag on my head like I did last summer. My friends were all kind of surprised, I usually go for bright hair, but to be honest, I'm getting older and maybe growing up, and I didn't want crazy colors anymore. Plus I'm totally neurotic about matching, so it drove me crazy--every time I got a new color, I couldn't wear half my wardrobe. But dreads go with everything~!

Hi everybody!

I'm currently in Paris, studying photography with Parsons School of Design. My final project is a series of portraits, and I'm choosing to have the central theme be people with dreadlocks. And while I'm finding plenty of people here to photograph, they're all pretty candid since I'd feel bad about asking someone to give me thirty minutes of their time. Sooooo, are there any dreaded people in or around Paris sometime between now and the end of July that would like to model for me? I'm crossing my fingers!!

Thanks, sorry there aren't any pictures.

8 month update

Greetings and Salutations!!
I hope everyone is having a great summer!! The world is beautiful out!!
My dreads are around 8 months tomorrow so I figured the obligatory update was due.
I've been swimming a lot since summer has began and my dreads have tightened up and shrank like no ones business! They're also crazy as ever, and I love that they make me look like a caveman.
Well, here they are.
