Faux locs. Temporary locs. Loc extensions. By now, you’ve seen them all over Instagram on some of hottest natural hair personalities. My first introduction to this style was through Saleemah Cartwright founder of Hydratherma Naturals Hair Care who paved the way with a unique take on protective styling and versatility. Before long,the locs look-alike took on numerous techniques, with various materials and hair types including marley hair, yarn and bulk kanekelon braid hair.
The style can range from funky, glamorous, to straight up hottttt. If you’re planning on rocking faux locs this fall, here are a few style tutorials that will have people breaking their necks to check you out.
