18 Women Who are Completely Slaying Freeform Locs on Instagram

Avatar • Jan 21, 2018

Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill, Whoopi Goldberg — many black icons have rocked free form locs, and now the age-old style is coming back on the scene. 

Unlike comb coil or twist locs, free form locs do not require that twisting be done at the root. There are two kinds of free form locs: organic free form, which are started without twisting or rolling, and semi-free form, which are started by loosely twisting or rolling the hair then leaving it to grow out on its own. (Some who have semi-free form locs choose to separate their hair at the roots to keep matting at bay, while others let their roots be.)

Although freeform locs have been traditionally associated with the granola/black hippie crowd they are re-emerging as a chic and inventive style option. These 18 women perfectly exemplify their beauty.

Looks like Auset_ntru aka Taren Guy reinvented herself. I know there were rumblings in the past of her trying to scam naturalistas out of their coins thru different avenues and projects, but in the end no one, not even me can judge one on their spiritual journey. Regardless, all ladies look lovely.
