Look of the Month
Master mesmerizing texture with this loc design by Rhonda Glenn of Nappy Or Not Hair Salon in Oakland, CA.
To begin, the hair is shaded with a copper hue using a 20-volume tobacco color with a 30-minute processing time. Locs are then retwisted and placed into five large cornrows, secured with covered elastic bands.
Leave the braids in for a day or two before taking them out. “The purpose of the set is so the hair can have a texture to it,” tells Glenn. “The texture is normally crinkly.”
When you’re taking the plaits out, finger comb the locs to help break them up.
Step 4: Finish
This perfectly wavy loc style can last up to two weeks as long as you tie tresses up with a silk or satin scarf at night.
STAR STYLE INSPIRATION
Singer Solange Knowles keeps us on our toes with her always-stunning Natural mane moves. Aside from being a songstress, DJ, fashionista and newlywed, she manages to switch up her style often. Solange shares the details about her ever-changing looks: “I actually love my Natural hair when it’s in a twist out and it’s been slept on for five days and revived by the steam of the shower,” says Solange. “A lot of people say, ‘It’s so beautiful. Why don’t wear it like that all the time?’ Well, I’m in all these different places and working with different hairstylists, so it’s important for me to wear it in a protective style.”
