Ways to style Female Viking Dreadlocks

Female Viking dreadlock hairstyles are a striking symbol of strength, independence, and cultural identity. Reflecting the fierce and adventurous spirit of Viking women, these hairstyles combine practicality with a bold aesthetic. Dreadlocks, also known as “locs,” are formed by matting and twisting sections of hair, creating a distinctive texture and shape. Viking women often adorned their dreadlocks with intricate braids and beads, adding a touch of artistry to their formidable appearance. These hairstyles served not only as a means of self-expression. They were also as a practical solution for keeping hair out of the way during long voyages and battles. Embodying both femininity and resilience, female Viking dreadlock hairstyles continue to be a sign of ruggedness and power.

Further Styling Natural Viking Dreadlocks

For those who have committed to ‘dreadlocking’ your real hair there are a variety of ways to further style the dread locks to achieve a more Norse-inspired look. Shaving both sides of the head and leaving the remaining dreadlocks on the top of the head to achieve a ‘Viking Mohawk look’ can provide a dramatic Viking hairstyle. It is thought that Vikings often either shaved or braided the sides of their head for practicality. For example, shaved/braided sides prevented a bow and arrow getting stuck in hair. For those not wanting as dramatic a look, you can try tying the dreadlocks back in a ‘ponytail’ with a Viking-inspired hair tie. This can add more Norse inspiration to your look while being practical.
