Last year, we shared 10 of the Most Stunning (Loose) Natural Hair Pictorials, and we recently celebrated the beauty of faux locs (although not everyone was feeling that). So here, finally, are ten of the most stunning loc pictorials.
To achieve this curly style, Joymarilie “cut up an old pair of thick tights into strips, dampened her hair with water, and wrapped 4–6 locs on each strip just like a curler.” She then tied the ends of each strip and let her hair set overnight.
Franchesca was inspired by a loose natural to create this gorgeous faux-shaved style. She starts by flat twisting or rolling the back, and then eventually flat twists the sides to give the illusion. You can find the full tutorial — including how she styles the front — on her blog post.
Here is another creative look from Joymarilie and it is particularly useful for after a sweaty workout. Though she does “rock her frizz from time to time, when she wants that sleek look” this is one of her options. She lets her edges air dry under a scarf for about 30 minutes or more and voila! Beautiful natural waves.
Here is another look by Patience but on much looser waves. Just roll the front locs to create a bang and throw on a headband!
This is a third look from Joymarilie called loc petals. Check out her Youtube page for more details on the style.
Check out this elegant updo using just a few simple steps. The style can be modifed for shorter locs as well.
Tamieka Grizzle-Martin illustrates how she created her flowing, crinkled locs with a set of rope twists.
And here’s one more by Tamieka.
