QUESTION about: Jamaican Hair Patterns - Is This A Part Of The Culture
I have 12-year-old grandson living with us from 12 hours old, his mom, our daughter, met Jamaican a Leighton Gardener.


We tried to locate him in May Pen but Ashton mom remarried a Justin Hart also of may pen, who does not want Ashton so, he probably will never get to meet his father or family. We tried hard to give him education Jamaican birth right.

He excels in martial arts. His chosen name is “Jamaican boy” he tells all that’s what he is.

At school, he now excluded because he wants hair style with patterns I told school it his cultural and identity he should be allowed.

Can you tell me if indeed it is a hairstyle used by Jamaican males? He not in gang, pure just his id. school say we need to prove. Can you help respectfully George Gale snr

ANSWER: by Wellesley, November 2016

Hi George,
So sad to hear that your grandson is 'excluded' like that.

You did not say what exactly the hairstyle he is wearing is, except that it has patterns, so I cannot assume that it is Rastafarian. That, as for as I know, is the primary differentiating factor in terms of Jamaican hairstyles; there are many other hairstyles worn in Jamaica but most are just that, styles.

Is it possible for you to share a picture with us, without showing his face?

That said, I'll invite you to read this article I posted that speaks to the most popular Jamaican hair styles, plus a bit of history and culture.

Let us know.

I am so curious, regarding this young man, where are they living, are they in the states? This is very sad...Seems to me he is requesting to have dreadlocks...I can tell right off the bat, he is missing Jamaica maybe if he get's a chance to go home, his spirit will be lifted again, I'm assuming he is not there.
