Girl Crush: Shakira’s Dreads

August 23, 2010


I tried dreading my hair when I was 15 and it turned out terribly – I ended up cutting them all off and sporting a pixie. But I’m sure no matter what I tried doing to my hair when I was 15 would’ve turned out poorly – that’s just how it is when you’re a teenager. Ever since then I’ve said that dreads are for dirty hippies and gross. But really, who am I to talk? My hair pretty much dreads itself on a weekly basis.

Until I spied these photos of Shakira – I’m totally smitten with her hair! Now, I’m no she wolf so I don’t think I could rock these quite so fabulously… but I’m tempted. (Note: If I were to try and execute this look it would involve professionals and extensions.)

Edit: I’ve got dreads now. Check them out here.
