You’re going to want to take notes for this one, because we’re seriously trying to copy Justine Skye’s latest hair look.
We stumbled upon a pic of Justine rocking long faux locs on the Toyokalon Instagram page. It looks like Justine’s faux locs were created with the crochet method, an easier and faster alternative to other methods that require a head full of single braids as a base, with wrapped hair on top to create the look.
The crochet method involves braiding your hair into cornrows, then using a needle tool to tie in individual faux locs. Sounds complicated, but it’s not. What would normally take eight hours with single braids, can be done in about two hours with this technique.
To start, you’ll need a latch hook needle tool ($1, here) and a few packs of faux locs.
Here are a few brands that have faux locs available in purple!
