Hello, dreadlocks, and welcome to the 21st century. Gone are the days where depressed locks simply hung around as a result of neglect. Today, locks can be worn stylishly, particularly when groomed with the help of a stylist.

Dwyane Wade is quite the anomaly—not just for his skillful feats on the court, but also for his trendsetting style choices off of it. The 28-year-old NBA standout, who recently costarred in Just Wright with Queen Latifah and Common, says he’s quite comfortable in the distinguished gentleman role—even if it means getting routine facials.
