Ciara Debuts Crazy-Long Dreadlocks: Should She Keep Them?

07/07/2014 at 03:16 PM ET

There were quite a few celebrity hair happenings this Fourth of July weekend — Alyson Hannigan’s fiery color swap, Lance Bass went aqua and Nicole Richie switched things up from lavender to a bold blue hue. But Ciara’s dreadlocks might be the most dramatic mane move of them all.

The bride-to-be added waist-skimming dreads to her curly ombré style, and showcased her new look in a series of Instagram shots. But it might not be a permanent thing — it seems like the new do was part of a photoshoot. “Back 2 Work and Im Obsessed…:) Thanks @italozucchelli and @CalvinKlein,” she captioned the below photo.

The new mom is a total hair chameleon, so it’s not surprising that she went for such a bold, beautiful look. But we would be surprised if she kept the distinctively dyed streaks for her wedding — the blonde, copper and brunette tri-tone look doesn’t seem to quite jibe with the mood she’s planning to set.

Ciara recently opened up about her nuptials to fiancé Future, and revealed the event will be a very elegant affair. “Indoors and black tie,” she said of her vision. “For the palette, I’m not into loud colors. I like black and white, classic and clean.”

What do you think of Ciara’s dreads? Do you hope they stick around? Share your thoughts below.

“Ciara recently opened up about her nuptials to fiancé Future, and revealed the event will be a very elegant affair (another reason we think she’ll ditch the dreads).”

So is this your way of saying women with locs aren’t elegant. Plenty wear them on their wedding day.

So…you’re saying locs can’t be “very elegant,” huh?

Major fail, guys. MAJOR FAIL.

Wow so locs are not elegant now? Way to be racist, guys. Good to know you’re still keeping up the idea that our hair and hairstyles are something to be ashamed of.

Locs cant be elegant now? Overtly racist opinion, people like you are the reason microagressions exist, I hope you know this.

Nice that you deleted the comment but you could also do a quick Google search and see a bunch of ways Locs are styled for weddings. Why not feature some Stars with locs in your next article.

What makes locs not elegant? Please explain.

Some white girl wrote this right? Excuse me but ANY style can be elegant and appropriate if done right. Please stop pretending to understand “our” hair. Many beautiful things can be done with black hair. I bet if Miley Cyrus or Some other “can’t for the life of me understand why she’s even famous” white girl chose to rock this same hairstyle on her wedding day, it would be in all the fashion mags and trending the next day about how awesome it was. If Ciara wants to wear dreads on big day, that’s her choice and pretty sure it will only enhance her looks because girlfriend is already gorgeous.

What’s wrong with dreadlocks? And why does the writer call the style ‘crazy’? I love the look… stop the racism!
