This gorgeous updo on Dominique Fishback looks complicated, but couldn’t be any easier to do. The feature of this high, secure bouffant is the gorgeous wave pattern. Faulk suggests putting your locs into eight to 10 braids and leaving them braided for one to two days.
“No need to wet your hair before, locs will create textures even when dry if held for long periods [of time],” she explains. “Take the plaits out right before styling.”
For the beehive, “put a large ponytail holder around either of your wrists and lean your body forward, gathering all your locs to the top of your head. Twist them (like a towel) to the left or right all the way to the tip. This will force a coil with all your locs,” Faulk advises. “Bring them down to make a bun on the top of your head. Carefully, pull some of the locs in the bun outward to make the bun fuller.” Leave out a few locs to create a gorgeous, face-framing moment.
Micro Locs Bob
Lupita Nyong’o’s sisterlocks era produced a handful of screenshot-worthy looks including this elegant side-part bob. Here, Nyong’o proves you don’t need long hair to pull off cute loc styles. Camille Friend — the actor’s hairstylist — previously told Allure that Nyong’o began a sisterlocks (a form of micro locs) journey while filming Black Panther, which ultimately influenced her character’s hair looks in the movie. Tiny locs like these take a long time to create, but if you’re looking for an easy-to-maintain hairstyle, this is for you.
