How the Style Was Achieved?
This beautiful updo was created with heatless curls. First of all, the stylist used or restored the individual extensions on each loc before designing the style. The back is pinned up to perfection in individual rows. The side and front is then put into absolutely stunning barrel twist to accent the models facial features, also. This short to medium style took a few hours to achieve. This is a permanent look but can also be used as a protective style. More importantly, the stylist says; “it doesn’t prohibit your hair from growing.” More women are choosing loc extensions as the style is gaining in popularity.
Loc extensions and barrel twists are also easy to maintain and can last 6-8 weeks with the proper maintenance, therefore the stylist was careful to pay close attention to detail while pinning up the back. A touchup is recommended in between a re-do. You can wash this type of style by focusing on the scalp. If you need to moisturize your hair, the stylist recommends a leave in conditioner. The stylist suggests keeping your hair moisturized in the first couple of weeks also, but not immediately following your trip to the salon to avoid slipping. You’re invited to contact the stylist for details on how to achieve this gorgeous style today.
