Ignoring the question of whether men with long or way-out hairstyles are less disciplined than their colleagues with short hair, it does highlight the fact that dreadlocks and rasta hairstyles are perceived as rebellious and unruly, if not unkempt, in much of the world.

Over the coming months we’ll try and show you different ways of wearing your dreadlocks and natural black hairstyles.
