Green Dreads

A common theme we see from the singer is to only dyed 5 to 6 strands of his hair whilst leaving the rest in its natural colour. Ty Dolla Sign can be seen here doing this with green colour.

Hip Hop and R&B artists have dyed the hair in multiple colours but green still is not the common choice which we believe may have influenced his decision to do so. Anything to stand out agaisnt social norms, Tys in!




We have seen TY Dolla Sign have his whole head bleached blonde whilst also having only a few strands bleached.

Whether its his entire head or a few strands the colour makes him stand out. The colour blonde against black and brown skin creates a contrast that many people love.

Disclaimer: Applying any sort of chemical to your hair is a very risky job as this can lead to breakage or thinning if not done correctly, therefore we always recommend you use a professional.



Braids (2 & 3 Strand Twist)

One of the many benefits that dreadlocks provide are the ability to be styled in multiple ways and in Ty’s case his signature look are his 2 and 3 strand twists.

2 or 3 strands of hair is taken and wrapped or braided amongst each other then closed off with a rubber band.

This is one of the most common protective styles within the dreadlock community and something we have continuously seen him do.


Do your research if you want similar Dreads

While there is a lot of conflicting information with regards to dreadlocks, we still advise you to do research. The most important things at the initial stage will be to watch videos online and make notes of the peoples dreads you admire.

We should also mention that its best you avoid placing any colour or bleach in your hair for the first few months as your hair begins to develop.

Ty Dolla Sign has traditional locks (medium size) with a square grid parting around his head.



Talk to a loctician and get a Consultation

Talking to a loctician is our best advise! They are the professionals who live and breathe hair.

During the consultations locitians will be able to have a closer look at your hair type, discussion process, hair products to use and avoid and parting systems.

Ensure you save the images of your desired style to your loctician and explain what you’re looking for.
