These blonde dreads with some piled high on top of the head are by Ammon Carver, Ammon Carver Studios in NYC and are one look from his Collection of sexy hunks Nominated in the Men’s Hairstyling category for the North American Hairstyling Awards ((NAHA) 2017. Are the dreads inspired by Warriors, Tarzan, Game of Thrones? Whatever, the great dreads on nipple-pierced International Model, Alexander Masson, must have taken a few years to grow are best done on thick hair, and on a man who is groomed, the beard too. Carver has just opened a second AC Studio on West Broadway and is a Global Creative Director for L’Anza. Healing Haircare. This photo is from a full page in the July 2017 issue of Peluquerias Magazine, published in Barcelona, Spain.

Congratulations to the Avant Garde Winner at NAHA 2017 –  Chelsea James of the Forma Salon in Engelwood, CO. And congratulations to all the winners.

They are both by Julie Kocanyar, Reverie Salon, Chicago and were nominated in the Texture Category for the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA/PBA) 2017, to be held in Las Vegas this Sunday, July 9, at the Mandalay Bay In Las Vegas.  (Since I posted this, Julie Kocanvar won the Texture Category Award at NAHA July 9. Congratulations.)
