Allo NaturalSelection naturalistas! I’ve got an exciting week of posts ALL ABOUT LOCS coming up for ya! I always seek to include all members of the natural community on this blog, but since I don’t personally have locs, loose natural hair tends to get a bit more love on the site. But not this week! I’ve reached out to some amazing contributors to share with us some LocTalk! My hope is that we with the loose hair can learn a thing or two from our loc’ers as well as give loc’ers a chance to learn new things about their own hair (and have a platform to share their unique natural journeys)!
Kicking things off is NYC-based blogger and vlogger Miss Franchesca Ramsey aka Chescaleigh with the fantastic Youtube Channel Chescalocs. I’ve long been an admirer of her blog because of her gorgeous and innovative loc styles and eye for design so I asked her to put together a couple tutorials for us here! I too have been eyeing the partial shaves and I love that this style that recreates the drama of the look without the commitment of the shave! Enjoy!
Faux-Shaved Style Tutorial
Major hair confession: I’m secretly obsessed with the half shaved hair look, but I’m way too chicken to do it! The style got major attention when Cassie boldly debuted it in 2009, but after seeing it on Natural Hair guru Chime “Hair Crush” Edwards (http://www.youtube.com/user/HairCrush) I knew I had to find a way to replicate this style with my locs. Check out my step by step photo tutorial to learn how you can rock this look without taking out the clippers!
