I’ve gotten so many compliments all around with this hair style. It’s cool in this southern heat because my hair is off neck and in an updo, except for a few loc’s that my Stylist Tumika left in the front and the back to give my face a few spiral curls at my request.
One of the main things I hear from women who want to go natural but are hesitant is that they worry about the versatility of creating different hairstyles with their natural hair. One of the reasons (among others) for this blog is to showcase the different ways to be creative with your natural hair and ‘how to’s’ for natural hair care. I created an post many moons ago showing off the creative and artist styles that can be created with loc’s in particular. See that post here for more styles by Tumika at Creme De La Creme Hair gallery.
Notice the tattoo there on my neck. It’s the Adinkra symbol Duafe. Surprisingly, this tattoo was not nearly as painful as the one on my foot. This was a style me and Tumika (LaSha) decided to be creative with. In the front of my Hair is Nubian knots, but I explained that I wanted some of my loc free to fall in the back of the Goddess bun made up of the nubian knots in the front. With the free standing locks…I simply twisted them (all in the same direction of the natural twist of my hair) and created a spiky look from the back view.
