Look of the Month
Show off your fab Naturalista style with a sassy hair design by Ebony Nichols & Chevron Miley of Locks of Nu Natural Spa in Brooklyn, NY.
After Natural hair was double-strand twisted, twists were allowed to set under the dryer, before being let out resulting in tight, springy curls. Next, the side was braided into cornrows, which were secured near the center (where the cornrows join the rest of the mane).
To give it a fuller effect, filler pieces of hair were added in between the rows of twist-outs. The stylists trimmed the extensions and shaped them to fit the face shape for a natural look.
Nichols & Miley fingered through the curls to loosen them up, and polished the look off with an olive oil sheen spray to finish.
Step 4: Finish
The pair says this this versatile look would work for both day & night. “You can do a few things with it. You can play with it, you can pin it up and have an updo with the cornrows on the side,” Nichols describes.
STAR STYLE INSPIRATION
Singer Ledisi is always on top of her loc style game and she looks amazing! The Truth singer dishes on her gorgeous locs and what she why she went Natural: “I wore Bantu Knots in 2000, so it’s been over 13 years! They are past my shoulders now. People are afraid to loc, but I started doing it because [my hair] just naturally went there. There wasn’t anything ‘deep’ about it, I did it because I loved and it just seems to be part of who I am. And I love my hair!”
