Today’s afro-centric-minded individual doesn’t have to wait years in order to achieve the look of long, thick natural dreadlocks. Now you can achieve the look of a well-seasoned loc hairstyle with the help of permanent loc extensions. This technique is one of the top Black hairstyles for 2020 & 2021. Master hairstylist Shamone Barnes from Salon Planted in Shelby, NC has taken this trend one step further. Shamone created the loc extensions by hand. Shamone understands that each client deserves a look that is specific to them. She handcrafts each loc extension to ensure that all her clients get a truly, “one of a kind”, hairstyle. While this process is more labor-intensive than just choosing permanent loc extensions from a commercial seller, Shamone’s process has a more natural look and feel than most out of the bag loc extensions.
