"awkward stage" with new dreads? [27 Dec 2007|12:06am]
guys! this site is amazing! I've been reading through the memories all day, I can't get enough.

I want to start my dreads this week while my cousins are in town. One of them got dreads a few months ago, and now I'm super exited to start like RIGHT NOWWW. <3

Here's my main question. I know it's probably going to take a few days to get all my hair dreaded... so what do I do with my hair in the meantime? Should make them in any particular order, so it doesn't look TOO silly with half a head of locks? Am I weird for even caring about this?

Similarly, what can I do during the sideshow bob stage? :)


A couple of other questions:

I'm getting married mawwied in July... I envision using beads, ribbons and flowers to decorate my hair. Any other suggestions on styling dreads to fit a retro, garden-party sort of wedding? It's going to be a relaxed vibe (barn wedding ftw!) but my dress is sort of 1940s glam. I mean really, I was envisioning more of a Marylin Monroe hairstyle (as if I could pull THAT off) so dreads is a whole 'nother ballgame. Ideas?

Do you think it's even a good idea to get dreads a few months before my wedding?

this is my introductory post to this lovely little community, and to be perfectly honest, i'm doing this almost entirely for my own benefit as i am currently at home on christmas break and i am bored out of my skull.
that said, hello.
my name is laura and i am nineteen years young.
i'm a nursing student at a little private university in south florida (speaking of which, are there any dreaded nurses around? i'm beginning to wonder if this will become an issue later on, but i'm not too concerned about it yet.).
i've only had my little dreadlets for two months now, and i told myself that i wouldn't make a post here until they were better looking, but i ran out of books to read, so here i am.

i have a great many pictures to share with you all, so take a gander behind the cut to check them out if you're interested. =]

dread hawk!! [27 Dec 2007|12:26pm]
i FINALLY shaved one in... i love it though now my head is ridiculously cold.
Using the ones i shaved off I extended most of the ones remaining so they have doubled in length.
and tonight i think i will dye em purple...
it was pretty much my uncle Billy and Lish who inspired me to get it....
my dreads are a little over 6 months now...
