Hi
Well I currently have very long natural dreadlocks they are past my waist
I am classed more as an alternative model due to my dreads piercings and tattoos
Now I like my dreads but also love vintage so adore 1940's victory rolls and waves its impossible to do these sort of styles with dreads
Without covering them with a long wig and styling the wig
So im getting fed up of doing this
But as im an alt model im unsure of whether ditching them is the right move as they give me an obviously completely different look
Do you think I would get less work on the more alt side if I do get rid?i mean I dont know if they potentially give me an edge and set me apart?ive not seen many models with long dreads-sure they are there though!
What would you do?
Just carry on wearing a wig for certain styles or ditch them?
Ps wouldnt be until end of the year start of next if I do

You cover them in every single image.
Have you got any where you are showing them?

I say ditch the dreadlocks as it will be limiting the people who would be interested in shooting you.

I'd be more likely to book you with them, if I lived in the UK. As an alternative model it gives you something different. You could do with a better shot to sell them though. The one you just put up with the dreads down is weaker than the rest of your port.

I agree with all that... except I am in the UK

Just seen the picture and I think you should keep them. You do a very good job of hiding them if asked to.
How hard can it be?

If you are ever in my area, give me a shout, I would love to shoot you WITH dreads out!
