Another old favourite of protective hairstyles, Faux Locs are definitely the new sexy! Having said that, there has always been a misconception that you can’t do much with short locs. Well, we are here to bust that one out; pulling out cute and easy modifications for your short faux locs, bound to get everyone to stop and stare!
Hair-raising? Hell yeah! Undercuts are without a doubt the most daring attempt at making a statement. Parting all your short faux locs to one side, shave off the other side or cornrow it to give it an illusion of an undercut. Strike ’em bold!
Coiled Faux locs will add some fun to your edges. Just braid in Darling Soft Dred Black locks with your regular hair and open it out to the ends. Unraveling your previously tightly coiled locs will leave you with loose spirals. You can even choose to keep the length of your locs as is and open up just the ends to lend further uniqueness to this style.
Talking about variations and we do not mention updos? Well that just ain’t possible! Divide the front portion of your locs and twist them to the top towards the crown of your head, forming a bun. Leave the remaining section of your hair loose. Choose to do one bun in the centre or two like in the image above. Either way, always remember that thin, neat and tidy locs are easier to play with for such hairstyles. Short faux locs are more stable & controlled when styled into an updo.
Short faux locs will give you a stylish look which is very different from your regular hairstyles. These locs are easy to style and do not require long-term commitment.
