If you have shorter dreadlocks, these are quite challenging to style. Styling a shorter dreadlock is challenging since it is difficult to grab and grasp the hair.

Then, you fold the dreadlocks down like folding them into a downward loop. Then, you can coil the end of the dreaded loops and finally tuck the ends of the hair down into a knot.

You can also style your short dreadlocks away from the face. Short dreadlocks naturally frame the face. To do this style, you have to pull back the dreads that rest on the part of your hairline that borders your forehead. Then, you put a pin to secure your hair or you can wrap it with a cloth or wear a head band to keep your dreads away from your face.

You can also style your short dreadlocks in low twists. Low twists are suitable for short dreadlocks that are longer than chin length but shorter than shoulder length. This hairstyle is suitable for formal occasions or work environments.  To do this, you have to gather the dreadlocks on one side of your head, and then twist them inwards moving downwards to the outline of your hair. Use pins or clips to keep it safe. Repeat with the other side. You can clip them together once you have completed the twists if your hair is long enough.
