Bobbed Twists, Locs, and Braids
The perfect style for the low-maintenance folks. We all love thick and long hair, but sometimes it is good to give the inches a break. Long traditional braid and loc styles can be heavy and sometimes weigh the hair down, causing damage and breakage. Since this is a protective style, you want your hair to be under as little stress as possible to allow your hair to breathe and regenerate. Just cause this style is shorter doesn't mean this look won’t slay.
Like the longer twists and faux locs, the shorter style is also very versatile. You can add beads and jewels for fun and embellishments. Try playing around with different techniques and looks, you will find something that is the perfect fit for you. Styling the hair up differently can also completely change your look; a half up half down style is more casual and playful, perfect for school, concerts, or weekends on the couch.
