Look of the Month
Salon pro Tia Blake of Versatility The Salon in Hyattsville, MD, created a silhouette that’s perfect for day or night!
Tia began by moisturizing the scalp with pomade. Then she individually rolled each loc onto a perm rod, using smaller blue rods in the front of the crown and larger peach rods in the rest of the mane.
Hair was allowed to dry under the dryer for two and a half hours before removing the rollers from the hair. “I untwisted each loc from the top to the bottom,” explains Blake. “I removed the perm rods and unrolled counter-clockwise.”
After locs are unrolled, Blake arranges them into a voluminous Mohawk by securing tresses with covered elastics.
Step 4: Finish
This versatile style can be worn up in a stunning upsweep or taken down for a curly look. Blake advises wearing a silk or satin bonnet for sleeping and use a showering cap to keep this look rockin’ until your next shampoo!
