Of Fifty Shades Of Dread #2018BOTY

Day 20 of 25 Days of Blogmas celebrating the Best Of The Year #BOTY2018

What do I know fashion and style trends…….

I am Jon Snow. I know nothing

I would guess its something to do with my hair.

The natural hair trend seems to be catching on like wildfire, some say its because its cheaper to keep your hair au naturel, others are about embracing their selves with pride and no additives…….

As natural hair trends are being accepted in the corporate world as well as some education institutions people no longer have to conform to having only particular hair style and length as the acceptable.

I have heard people jokingly quip:

“MaRasta avakuwanda kudarika vanhu….”

Translation: “The are now more rasta haired persons than people”
Ras Caleb the rascal dread 
Ras Beaton
Ras Tere

Funny thing though, it kinda carries an implication that rasta folk aren’t quite regular people, even when someone is describing a group of people they will zero in on that “yeah I saw 4 people and one rasta” instead of just saying 5 people.

Its crazy weird how random people will walk up to you and greet you like you belong to some super elite, socially conscious group and all you have to do is give a vague rasta nod and they walk away happy…….

Should people meet me walking with my fam like this:

The walking Dread
The walking dread

Its On!

People have such a fascination with dreadlocks that I am not surprised the trend is trending, especially in the circles for creatives; where its almost a signature look. Odds are very high, if you spot someone with locks, they are into some creative art…….
