Braided Loc Updo: 1 Style, 2 Beautiful Options!

Hi, Lovelies! I want to share a loc style that I did over the weekend with you! I was able to create 2 great looks out of one style!

I added a little color throughout to highlight her beautiful locs. I then shampooed and conditioned this Blossoms locs with Hair Garden’s Cleanser and Mango Punch Conditioner and used the “Herbal Tea” Tree-tment on her scalp and new growth during the re-twisting process with  an occasional dab of EcoStyler. She sat under the warm dryer for about 45 minutes for we began styling.

Look #1

The locs were braided up diagonally and pinned at the crown of the head with some left draping at the sides. I over-hand braided that hair and pinned it at the bottom.

Additional styling option: The braid in the front can be taken down later for a wavy effect on the locs!

Look #2

Look #2 is my favorite! The locs were dampened with water and I added a little setting lotion before wrapping them on small perm rods. We could not find the color pipe cleaners we needed so I went with this beautiful alternative.

She sat under a warm dryer (medium heat) for about 45 minutes. I removed the rods and pinned the curls so they were secure and not dangling.

Additional styling options: Remove the hair pins for longer, looser curls. It can also be pinned up entirely into a curly bun!

Thanks for stopping by!
