Look of the Month
Combine fierce locs with a simple bun to create a high-fashion finish with this style by Rhonda Glenn of Nappy Or Not Hair Salon in Oakland, CA.
Pull lengths into high pony. “If you have long enough locs you can use that as a base to wrap your locs around,” tells Glenn.
Wrap the locs around each other in a donut shape. Continue in this motion until the ponytail is secured by the wrapped locs at the base.
“Use a few hairpins (or a needle and thread) to secure the bun when you finish,” tells the hair pro. “There is no need for an elastic band—the locs do it for you,” says Glenn.
Step 4: Finish
The look can last for two to four weeks, as long as you keep it tied up at night with a silk or satin scarf to prevent frizz. “Add some shine spray to the locs if they get dull, advises the hairstylist.
STAR STYLE INSPIRATION
NATALIE LA ROSE
With her gorgeous style vibe and mane of curls, Natalie La Rose is definitely one to watch. The “Somebody” singer is known for her voluminous ringlets and here she shares how she achieves the look: “I curl it with a curling iron and when I do, it usually stays good for a while. It keeps the shape that I give it so that’s the good thing about my hair. I don’t want to have the ‘pageant’ look—I like when it’s fixed with a little bit of frizz.”
