Top 3 Popular Florida Lifestyle Trends

Dreds (Wicks)

The Wicks hairstyle is a modern and trendy style of dred locks that began in South Florida and has expanded throughout the entire state. Originally popular and mostly worn by West Indians, Haitians in particular, but as the Zoes (Haitians) influence and popularity grown throughout the streets of Miami and Broward County, this style expanded from South Florida to Central Florida to North Florida, and beyond.
