Locks are stylish on their own but for many people who wear them, searching for locks styles to refresh their look won’t hurt. Regardless if you had them for two decades or just two weeks ago, you have plenty of options when it comes to styling your locks. All you need is a little creativity to get started. Imagine how you would look or get some advice from loc experts. Be resourceful, experiment and have the confidence to wear them! Below are five tips to get inspired and tickle your creative juices when it comes to locks hairstyles.
1. Curl – Curling instantly adds glamour to your locks. It gives your locks a fab look without much ado. After all, curling rods, soft curlers, etc are often easy to use and inexpensive and if you need help, you can always check out video tutorials all over the web. As a matter of fact, many fabulous styles for locks make use of grandma’s good old curlers so if you want a fuss-free way to pretty locks, get those curlers working.
2. Cut – If they’ve always been long, cutting you hair short is the shortest route to a completely new look. However, consider one that frames your face nicely. For others, an afternoon with hair shears is no big deal but there are those who need to think things through before getting their locks chopped off. Whatever category you’re in, it helps to have an experienced stylist around to guide you in making a decision.
3. Clip – Use pieces that compliment your hair and outfit. Try hair accessories, put on a head wrap, wear a head band, earrings, dazzling beads etc. Clip whatever you have as long as they match your get up. In short, accessorize but learn how to mix and match. Accessories can greatly enhance your locks hairstyles but the trick is to not overdo it. Some pieces can help radiate your feminine appeal, give you classy look or show your fearless, fashionable side.
4. Color – A new shade can definitely perk things up in the mane department, dreadlocks or not, but again, find the hue that suits you. Remember that a shade that looks amazing on someone else may not yield the same result for you. Go to a reputable salon or a trusted colorist instead of going for a DIY as locked hair is more challenging to dye. If you just had your hair locked, wait for at least twelve weeks before coloring. In case you haven’t, it’s recommended to dye your hair first before locking them.
5. Change – Little changes like a new angle of your part or creating a part if you have none can make a huge difference. Play with your bangs, put your locks into a bun, create a Mohawk and if you are a bit more daring, you can even shave a side. As a matter of fact, various styles for locks are available especially to those who are not afraid to experiment. If you welcome changes, you will not find yourself lacking in options.
