Step 1: Choosing your Length and Colors

I have a blog entry coming soon that will cover length in greater detail, but for now, I will give a crash course version. The best way to know how long your dreads will be is to use a tape measure and measure down from the top of your head. Since dreads are handmade, the lengths are slightly approximate (i.e. 25 inches will most likely vary from 23-26 inches), but this is a good way to estimate how (long) they will appear on you.
