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.

I am shine struck. I was wowed by Donedo’s locs. There’s so many things you can do with locs. It’s addicting.


I really, really wanna try faux locs, but the time, man. THE TIME! You’re doing your head over twice. Put the braids in, then wrap them. Will someone come and install them on my head overnite while I sleep please? lol


What I do is twist my hair first, wear it like that for a week, and then do a Friday Saturday Sunday install for the locs. No one can really tell the difference if you start with the front


Faux locs give me life! I wore them back in April for two months and when I took them out I was shocked to find that my hair grew two inches. I have them in now and plan to keep them till December to see how much inches I can grow. Bsl here I come!


I bought naturally dyed, wool yarn — feels amazing — from a local farm and am going with bold color.

YTer Shey “DIY Ombre Faux Locs” and a gorgeous pic of a woman with vivid blue locs and smokin’ cat eye make-up was enough to encourage me.


I thought wool yarn would lock with your hair? Be careful if that’s not your intention!


I really like donedo. She’s one of my favorite youtubers.
