Mr. Bob Marley pulled this look off very well, Shakira... not so much. Honestly when I see a caucasian person with dreads they don't always pull it off, they just look like a hippie or pot head. Dreadlocks look best with dark hair, blonde doesn't work as well, brown works and black definitely. African Americans pull off dreads the best. I know it sounds stereotypical but it's true, there's something about their skin color with that hairstyle that just mix so well.
