Juice Wrld dreads have become a topic of interest due to the cultural impact he left after his death! Having passed away in 2019 we have multiple images of music fans across the world styling their hair in similar ways in homage of the rapper.

Our editorial will highlight the evolution of his dreadlocks, his hair type, and their appearance before his death.


How & When did Juice Wrld Dreads Start?

How: He began his dreads through twisting with gel and these were regularly maintained for the first year. After which we can see he began to semi freeform his hair evident by his locks being different variations, short, long, thick, and thin.

In addition to this his hair type being a 4B allowed his dreads to mature faster due to the tight coil pattern. Jay z dreads would be a perfect example of having the same hairtype as Juice Wrld.


When: Through our research we can see his starter dreads journey began in 2015 during which his sides were kept shaved creating the hightop dreads look.
