Look of the Month
Show off your fab style with this Nappy of Not! Salon creation from Oakland, CA. Ombre locs morph from gold to crimson, adding the perfect pop to this gorgeous design.
The entire head was cornrowed creating a detailed pattern that allows the vibrant hair color to show throughout the braids. And although the finished style is left half down, hair pro Rhonda Glenn shares, “In order to give it a crinkly texture, we cornrowed it first.”
Half of the braids were then released, while the others were secured tight with bobby pins and covered elastic bands.
To finish this style, shake out the loose hair and comb through. Smooth locks over with a bit of oil and you’re ready to go!
Step 4: Finish
You’ll want to rock this ‘do for a while. So to keep your coif in top shape, remember to tie it up at night with a silk or satin scarf. Glenn also recommends braiding up the loose hair at night to prevent frizz.
