The rope like aesthetic creates a distinct textured appearance which is easy to maintain and last for weeks.

Its also quite clear to see how and why this has become his signature look, since day 1 we have continuously seen the streamer style his hair this way.

2 strand locs

When you unravel the twists, they often result in defined curls which outside of being a protective hairstyle is our favorite thing about the look!

2 Strand Twist & Faded Sides

On a consistent basis we get to see Kai’s hair being maintained and that often involves a line up with faded sides.

One of the advantages of dreads with a side taper fade is its versatility in styling. The dreads can be gathered into a top bun, ponytail, so we can see the contrast.

The taper fade’s clean lines and gradual length transition is what gives him a more defined look and yeah maybe the white chalk line helps too, but you get the point.

Styles like this also help reduce the belief that dreads are unkept and messy, we have various examples outside of Kai who sport fresh, clean locs with fades, Lil Durk Dreads & Ja Morant Hair come to mind!

2 Strand Twists & Front taper

Taking the taper fade concept a step further, Kai Cenat can be seen extending the fade to the front of his hair.

This style places emphasis on framing the face, with the taper fade carefully sculpted around the forehead and sides.

This is often done not only for stylish reasons but to ensure that as locs grow and gain length they don’t pull to the point of receding the hairline.

The front taper fade not only enhances his facial structure but also adds a touch of sophistication to the overall look.

It’s a prime example of how intricate detailing can transform a traditional style into a statement piece.

Kai Cenat Dreads in Curls

Unraveling 2 strand twists results in curly locs is one of the best things about the style.

Curly Locs

As hair has been intertwined for days or weeks it forms a new structure, and once unraveled we get to see where has was intertwined together thus creating twists.

Kai will usually do live streams as he unravels the look to show his audience. The style gained a lot of popularity by Lil Waynes Dreads before his freeform locs.

Lastly The versatility of curly dreads allows for various styling options.

We see Kai sometimes gather them into updos or ponytails, accessorize with beads and cuffs or simply worn down, the main thing is he has options!

I mean when you can keep an audiences attention on stream by simply unravelling your locs for curls this should be enough proof of the interest the style holds.
