One fun way to accomplish this is to simply grab a hold of your locs and twist hair to create a single loc braid.

LENGTH

If you have short hair or none at all, you can always add hair long hair. With new sizes and better attachment techniques the choices of sizes are limitless. Click here for more information on short faux locs, medium faux locs, and long faux locs
