what's the deal?

does anyone regularly watch dread_ru? i've recently been looking through the posts there because i'm always sort of fascinated by people who choose to have things done to themselves that i find appalling - in this instance, "dreads" so crocheted that they always look plastic & braidy.

anyhow, my point is not to get into another don't-flip-your-roots conversation, as you all know how i feel on that, but more to ask why the hell so many posters there get 7-8 long-assed fake dreads attached to the nape of their necks. i keep seeing this, & it seems somehow cultural as i never see it in any other non-ru dread communities. i'd ask there, but 99% of the posts are in russian & i'm not our resident sexy russian chick, so i figured i'd get a dialogue started here. so, any ideas, anyone?

Okay, I want really badly to post pictures, but I can't figure out how to do a lj cut. Usually there's a little button that I can hit that makes the cuts, but it's not there. Maybe I sound like a moron, but if somebody could explain to me how to do it, I'd be really appreciative.
