Protective style - High Bun



In an effort to retain length and to protect our ends from the freezing winter weather, a lot of us natural girls do protective styles.

Protective Styles are those that requires little manipulation, protects the ends of the hair by keeping them tucked away.

Most girls do styles such as mini twist or braids, braid extensions, weaves, buns, flat twist etc. My all time favorite is the High Top Bun. To me, its the easiest and quickest to do and almost anyone can do it (as long as you are past the TWA stage).



Needed: Brush, Gel/Styler with hold, Thin Headband, Bobby pins and a Satin scarf.

How to:

  1. Brush Hair up and using a headband (wrapped twice) push it up as high as u can can (while the hair is intact). You are basically just doing high puff.
  2. Use 4 bobby pins and secure the headband (4 sides) to prevent it from slipping.
  3. Add some gel or styling product to your edges and brush around your hair leaving the top/puff out. (we want those edges to be laying flat and sleek).
  4. Grab Random medium sized pieces of hair and two strand twist loosely (say 6 or 7 or more if you like). Pin the ends of each twist either under itself or over the headband. Using your fingers fluff to make sure there are no big gaps.
  5. Remove the headband when your ready to leave and Voila! Perfect sleek up-do that did not take long.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
