I love it! What are your thoughts ladies? Would you rock this? Do you think it can be mod­i­fied for short­er lengths?

Hel­lo, this is a great blog!


thanks for shar­ing my video and for all the com­pli­ments!


I love this braid­ed loc updo.…so cre­ative. Nat­u­ral hair ROCKS!!!!


I love this!! I tried the braid­ed crown on my locs last week so now this is my next style. Can’t wait! And Chesca looks gorg in this video!


I’ll prob­a­bly be rock­ing sene­gale­se twists for the rest of the year, so this style idea is pret­ty hot!!!!


I did like the style…I may try it this week­end. I don’t now why I didn’t think about look­ing for videos on dif­fer­ent hair styles for locs. I was a pony­tail kin­da girl as a kid so I was nev­er into styling much but its nice to have a few up-dos on deck for when I go out. 

Thanks for shar­ing!


I love Chesca! I’m not a fan of loc updos though, they just seem very heavy and bulky and over the top, but it looks amaz­ing on her.


She’s gorg and with all of the that beau­ti­ful hair!! Thanks for post­ing


Cute style and very sim­ple. I could defi­nate­ly work on short­er hair.


That came out gor­geous reminds me of my locs that I used to have :). The style looks real­ly good on you, did a great job on it. I would def­i­nite­ly rock this style if I still had my locs.


On a side note check out this new video from YT “Pret­ty­dim­ples01” called ‘Dif­fus­ing’. I like this and had nev­er thought of try­ing to dry my hair like this esp. after gel on it.


Zyaran, please stop post­ing unre­lat­ed pic­tures and videos to the top­ic at hand, it’s just odd. This post is about hair styles on locs and you post the albeit love­ly Pret­ty Dim­ples01 dif­fus­ing her curls? Rel­e­vance any­one?


to each their own if I want to post some­thing that I may think ladies may like as well.


anon is just say­ing that if you’re going to post a picture/video, post it when it’s rel­e­vant to the TOPIC. It is odd to post a clip about dif­fus­ing curls when the arti­cle is about loc styles. I’m sure peo­ple appre­ci­ate and like it when you post but is it real­ly nec­es­sary or rel­e­vant to post a video about dif­fus­ing curls on a top­ic about loc styles? It’s not an issue of “to each their own” it’s just an issue of rel­e­van­cy, that’s all!


thought this was an open forum…if it refers to nat­u­ral hair it’s rel­e­vant but I guess not


Thank you! That’s real­ly is all.


I think they both look great in the videos, and I don’t mind look­ing at oth­er videos hum this just gave me an idea of a style to try on my hair. TGIF :)
