Locs Updo Hairstyles are Part of a Statement

Locs themselves are so much more than a hairstyle. They are a tribute to our African heritage and they signify the freedom and independence that is instilled from our ancestors. Historically, we have always designed intricate updos with our locs also. Today’s loc updo hairstyles are fashionable examples of the beautiful hairstyles worn by our ancestors for generations. This particular hairstyle brings the client’s hair up into a bun with a small pompadour that covers part of the client’s forehead. Nivi Grimball used a small amount of synthetic, crochet hair additions to add a little flair in the front.

The Perfect Hairstyle for Those New to Their Locs Journey

This particular client is only two months into her locs journey. Initially, Nivi used the comb method to start her locs. Now that they have grown out some, Nivi used a re-twist method because the client was in-between lengths and she was too short for the two-strand twist method also. Nivi’s main concern is ensuring that whatever technique she uses doesn’t create too much tension on the scalp and creates hair loss problems for her client. Her professional techniques and understanding of her client’s hair condition allow her to create the perfect blend of show-stopping style in a hairstyle that keeps her client’s hair healthy also.

At-Home Maintenance Routine for Locs Updo hairstyles

Nivi Grimball is a professional hairstylist from Samiyah’s Hairstyling Salon in Charleston, SC. She created this locs updo hairstyle to be beautiful and easy to maintain also. To take care of this look, Nivi suggests using a silk or satin bonnet or scarf at night to secure the hair. Every morning, you should use some type of organic oil sheen for shine and natural oils to lock in moisture. Nivi points out that once your locs start to mature, there is a natural process that takes away the shine.  The organic oil sheen will help to replace what is lost.
