It's a huge hoolala for this elegant and sleek faux locs style. And if any hair can give you that lovely makeover you're yearning for, this is it! This is a simple yet classy hairdo  that will allow air into your scalp. It's not too long and not too short. Just perfect for a pretty damsel like you.

Another reason we're loving this hair is because it doesn't take as long as most faux locs styles, so that's more time for you to see that movie or hang out with the girls.  This hairdo is also a protective style. Your hair is under loc and key (literally) so that it can grow undisturbed by the harsh weather and dirt. 

You need to ensure your hair is firmly locked though, as that will determine how long it lasts. If it is loosely locked, it won't last long and that would be a shame because we'll love you looking this sweet for long. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to get a professional loctician to do the job.

If you've ever admired reggae artistes with really long locs then this is your chance to fulfill your fantasies. This is an absolutely gorgeous hairdo. It makes you look like a diva through and through. However, there's a price to pay. Don't be scared, we're sure you have all it takes to pay that price. Well, here's the price: it takes a really long time to make. But that's to be expected, isn't it? You can't have this lush and long hair without spending reasonable time on it. This could take you anything from 8-14 hours, depending on how fast your loctician is and how many of them are working on your hair. But one thing is sure, it is worth every millisecond spent on it.  We can bet on that. 

The length of this style is its greatest advantage. It gives you the opportunity to rock it in different ways, making you look like a diamond with different glittering sides.  

A great bonus of this locs is that you can wear it for a very long time, many months actually.  And the older they get, the more natural they look. Don't take our word for it. Just try it and prove us right.

This style is not called goddess for nothing. It's because you'll actually look regal and royal when you make it. And the curls? Heavenly! This hairstyle is best made long. That's how the beauty of the locs and curls will shine through. 

There's a warning though. You'll be needing a lot of hair extensions for this. As you can see, this hairstyle is full and long. Another catch is that it will take a while to make this beautiful style. But if you can be patient enough, you'll never regret it. Be sure to get quality extension as it won't be nice to go through all the stress only for your locs to start changing texture. 

Maintaining this hair is very straightforward. You will need a leave in conditioner and hair oil for the scalp and roots. Natural oils like coconut oil are better. They seal in moisture properly. Castor oil is another option. Not only does it nourish your scalp, it will also keep away bacteria and help maintain the pH balance of your hair.

Whichever you opt for is bound to be adorable. 

You can determine if you want your blonde faux locs to be long, medium or short. It's all up do you. You can also decide if you want it to be really full, average or thin. It's your call. One thing is certain though, and it is this: whatever the length or density, blonde hair will always be gorgeous. 

To ensure your blonde faux locs keeps looking beautiful, you'll need to keep your scalp moisturized. With time, your hair will start to grow and the roots will start showing so you need to keep those roots hydrated so they don't start breaking. Hey, there's one thing we forgot to add.
