This one is obviously for fellow loc heads in the awkward phase of their locs. The awkward phase is usually sometime around Day 1 - Year 2; when your head is full of scalp after a fresh re-twist and your locs seem too scanty, when your hair unravels after a fresh re-twist before you say can say Jack Robinson; when you think water is your worst enemy because it's preventing your locs from forming; when you are having a bad hair day and you feel like - Oh God if only I could get my hair into a ponytail it would do. I can go on and on... but instead I present you with 7 Style Ideas for short locs.
|#LocInspiration no. 1: Loc loops or Loc petals.|
Reminds me of a cropped hair cut, this style looks classy and elegant. Can be worn to
an event. It's also neat and can help with a more serious/subtle look.
|#LocInspiration no. 2: Pinned Up side.|
Even though it is just pinning up one side of your locs, it always make a difference.
A touch Style. You can use hair pins or make one or more flat twist on the side of your locs
to achieve this look.
|#LocInspiration no. 3: Accessorize|
Accessories alone add style to baby locs, a hair band with a big bow on the side
can help distract eyes from your locs when you are in-between re-twists.
|#LocInspiration no. 4: Curly locs, |
Yes you can get pipe cleaners in your baby/short locs too.
The good news is that your hair dries faster and the look is equally fabulous.

Beauty of the hairstyle is that it is a twofer. Once you let the knots down you get
nice wavy curls.
|Flat Twist into a Patewo Updo|
|#LocInspiration no. 7: Curly up do|
|Just had to add this one of me.|
Sometimes you just have to let those locs down and rock them with a big old smile and some attitude :)

+ It was my birthday last Tuesday :), didn't have time to do anything special to my locs :(. It was a fantastic day all together. TheLocitude.com launched, work wasn't too hectic on that day, tons of birthday wishes, prayers, and a surprise - ish dinner parry. I'll be sure to say some more and share a couple of pictures in that much procrastinated post on the new accessories I got a while back.
Happy weekend everyone.
Your loc head,
