Warrior Dreads and Styling
The warrior style is by far one of my favourites when I’m dreading. Through the years I’ve collected some great photos of people that I dreaded with the warrior style and I’d like to share it with you.
You can use them as inspiration for your look, or if you are potentially thinking of having dreads, these styles can give you ideas. So let’s go and dive into some warrior dreads and styling.
My Warrior Ladies
Women with dreads are figures that your eyes will catch straight away on the streets. The shaved sides, the undercuts, the dread fish-tales, the french plats, they make their dreadlock styles just amazing!
I do love them all! They are so strong and different. Each single one of them. It’s funny how they all said that after they got their dreads, they have a mad connection with them. Something that keeps them connected to their hair better than before and more connected to them selves as well. That just makes my heart open! ❤️
Warrior Woman with Maori tattoos and dreads:
Rachel has visited my studio in Manchester to get her dreadlocks. A lady who has a body almost full of tattoos now. She always loved dreads and finally she decided to get her hair dreaded with some natural dread extensions added to them. Her style now looks even more fulfilled, looking like a warrior 🙂
The Maori tattoos on her, along with many others just make her look stunning (even more than what she is) and the dreads just complete her look. The shaved sides and undercut are matching the warrior look perfectly and the decoration with beads is a playful addition.
Other things you can add on dreadlocks to achieve the style are hair wraps and feathers to support the look. You can find a great selection of Dreadlock Beads on my shop. Or you can book an appointment with me to install some hair wraps on your dreads or hair.
Viking Dread Styles on Men:
Now these guys are super warriors. They have that viking warrior look that no one can resist. I love men with dreads, I adore the viking dread style 🛡️❤️⚔️
Dreadhawks, dread fish-tales, and let’s not forget the beards! It’s all about that hair at the end of the day 😉
The first man in the photo is a real Viking man of the North of England, Garth Urlicson a great creative who works with wood and creates up-cycled furniture because nothing should go to waste! Love his style!
The last one in the big picture is Lord Ryan Merga who brews his own mead, beers and wines! He has one of the most iconic Viking styles with his ginger hair and very long beard!

If you would like to get dreadlocks installed you can always get in touch and we can discuss the look your envisioning. I’d love to do more warrior styled dreads!

After 8 years of making and fixing dreads I’ve met loads and loads of people who love dreads, have them for different reasons and they want to keep on having them. When they are at my studio in Manchester we get to meet each other and have all sorts of interesting conversations about different subjects. We get to find out what is good and bad or better to do with their dreadlocks, how to style them or change them a little bit to make them funkier and healthier. So here are some tips and stories of what we’ve done in our recent maintenances:
Alannah, a beautiful lady form Heaton Moor. I met her a few months ago and gave her a deep maintenance. Her dreads where growing wild and they started connecting with each other, especially at the back.
So I’ve chopped the connected bits and sectioned properly the dreads so they are not overlapping with each other.
Rock on lady, her dreads are looking fab again 🙂
Tip: trimming your dreads is not a bad thing. Really long dreads can sometimes pull the roots and make bold patches. Long dreads can also create neck pains due to their weight and become a little uncomfortable to handle.
So if you can get over the emotional attachment you can chop them a bit 😉
For this young man, is the 3rd time he is getting a set of dreadlocks. The previous times, different reasons made him cut his dreads with the last set being quite badly made. So he decided to get a 3rd set, made knit and tidy by CrafterElena. He says ” Dreads are easy to have. Every morning I can get up and go to work with out thinking of how my hair looks, cs it looks good 🙂 They are not just flat hair.”
Tip: Dreads can give a nice volume to your hair and you don’t have to worry and stress about styling your hair every morning. You can if you want, but you don’t have to 🙂
This young lad has just finished school. The day after his last exam he came to get his dreads done.
Time to go free and wild right???
Tip: Dreads have been for years and years a sign of liberation and freedom in different cultures and forms.
And so for Tom, who has just turned 18 and he is ready to rock the world!!
After almost 5 years of dread life he felt a bit too hot. So on a really sunny day he goes to me: “Hey dude, shall we shave the sides today? I want a change and I’m fucking hot lol”
So there he goes, he went for a more viking look now and heeeey, he can get some extra air 😀
