For Faux Locs, Braids, Twists, and Dreadlocks
Dreadlocks are a specific culture-driven hairstyle with faux locs allowing all ethnicities the opportunity to be a part of it. It’s a hairstyle worn with pride, exuding the confidence of a QUEEN or KING (WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE).
BUT YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT…
CHINS UP, BACKS STRAIGHT, CHESTS OUT.
Let’s talk FAUX LOC ACCESSORIES.
3 TIPS ON HOW TO ACCESSORIZE YOUR FAUX LOCS
When it comes to accessorizing, it really doesn’t matter if you have dreadlocks, faux locs, crochet faux locs, crochet hair braids, or twists. Why? Because there are three main ways to accessorize your hair and all hair types can utilize these to their fullest extent…
ADD MORE HAIR
Hair extensions are a beautiful thing and loc extensions are lifesavers. There are many reasons one would want to add more hair, and here are the reasons why:
If you have curly hair, add in some straight crochet braids! If you have straight hair, don’t be scared to throw in some volume by adding a few kinky twists or passion twists into the hair mix.
If you have short hair, you can hair long hair in a few hour’s time.
FOR A DIFFERENT COLOR
Another idea is to add in different hair colors to achieve a new trending look resulting in faux loc highlights; this goes especially for those with black hair. Let me tell you, men and women with dark black hair just have it made. They don’t have to get their hair dyed, and all they have to do is add in a few colors to obtain an entirely new look/hairstyle.
Can you feel our passion for black hair?! 🙂
Our favorite loc color combinations when working with dark or black hair are the following:
In the end, you really can’t go wrong because the contrast of black hair with any other color just… pops… it always looks so splendid.
STYLE THE NEW LOCS WITH A NEW UPDO
One fun way to accomplish this is to simply grab a hold of your locs and twist hair to create a single loc braid. Braiding hair is very easy to accomplish, ESPECIALLY if you have crochet faux locs.
ACCESSORIZE WITH LOC JEWELRY
