Anyway, can the girls have dreds to? Forgive me if this has been ask before. I found a thread with an Afro suggestion already, if that count for anything.

But is that historically accurate?

No, but then again neither are afros. Dreads were around as early as ancient Egypt, and the other styles were obviously common throughout history, so there are only a few styles we're limited on. Here, have a link:

Thanks, it was a genuine question since I have no idea when cornrows were "invented". I dislike the idea of afros or cornrows, but I do love the idea of including the dreadlocks for girls.

People have been braiding hair in various ways practically since there were people. The braids can simply be straght and flat, like a French braid, which was around at the time. We don't need any weaves or extentions in game. I would personally prefer one or many braids, since two braids would look much more "Heidi" than "Pirate".

Re: Hair Suggestion
Most hair styles including corn rows date back thousands of years into prehistoric tribal times. Many styles we think of as modern are really ancient. Corn rows were not invented by Hip-hop artists. They come from ancient tribal Africa. Punk rockers did not invent the Mohawk, the Mohawk Indians did. The age of Piracy was not entirely Euro-centric. Pirate culture was an intermix of many different cultures Including European, African, and American Indian cultures.
