    i do not think corn rows and braids are made for guys when they turn 21. it’s no professional at all and you would never get a professional job, never in the corporate world

    it just looks low

    Dreads well maintained and styled, maybe but once your in
    there is no discrimination. Freedom of expression is a right and
    you cannot be denied! Black is beautiful. There is a time and
    place for all styles it’s just a matter of taste and tact.

    I disagree with jermain. If a male has his hair braided past 21 they can still obtain any job in the world. It only looks bad if they don’t keep their hair in braids and know when to let the head breathe. Not many but in the nursing field their are men who have their hair braided. Its how u present yourself
