1. Crochet Extensions
Adding crochet hair extensions to cornrows, Senegalese twists, or other braids can create a stunning look with added volume and length.
2. Crochet Twisted-Out Look
Enhance a side-parted twisted-out hairstyle with crochet extensions for more volume and length, especially suitable for short strands like a face-framing bob.
3. Faux Locs
Faux locs offer the appearance of locs without a long-term commitment. They can be created using synthetic or human hair, with more affordable synthetic options.
4. Installing Faux Locs
Faux locs are installed using braid-in or crochet methods. Single box braids are placed around the head, and then crocheted faux locs are added to create a unique faux dread pattern.
5. Styling Faux Locs
Faux can be styled in various ways. Try two top ponytails, and faux locs for an unconventional look like Willow Smith, or opt for earthier aesthetics with space buns on either side of your face like Little Simz.
6. Maintaining Faux Locs
Regular scalp cleansing is essential while wearing faux locs to prevent dandruff or fungus buildup. Shea oil can be used to repair damaged fibers and moisturize the scalp.
7. Crochet Bob
A long crochet bob can be versatile for work and date night. The bob can feature tight crochet twists for volume or a few looser strands for an unstructured feel. Adding crimped texture and highlights can elevate the style.
8. Color Experimentation with Crochet Braids
Crochet braids allow for fun color combinations, such as an asymmetrical style. Tight crochet twists serve as the base, while vibrant magenta highlights add a pop of color.
9. Wavy Crochet Bob with Bangs
Try a wavy crochet bob with bangs for a trendy and fashionable look that helps expand natural locks. The wavy curls add body and dimension, creating an eye-catching silhouette.
10. Crochet Twist Out
Crochet braids can provide a break for natural hair, offering volume and protection. Achieve a loose bob look using Harlem125 synthetic hair braids and a high ponytail to keep the face frame visible.
11. Passion Twists
Passion twists are an elegant crochet look with added length, providing a natural appearance with knotless fixing and no visible clumps of hair. Highlights can also be added for a personalized touch.
12. Crochet Cornrows
Crochet cornrows are an effortless protective style that can be quickly added or removed. The process involves layering cornrows to create a base, and looping hair extensions using a latch hook or crochet needle.
13. Choosing the Right Weave
Different types of weave may be used for crochet cornrows to prevent breakage and damage to the natural hair texture. Stylists can also experiment with curl patterns to add variety to the finished look.
14. Installing Crochet Cornrows
Once the cornrows are in place, a latch hook or crochet needle is used to install the desired style into each cornrow. The hand is slid under each cornrow, and pre-styled hair is hooked into it before the latch is closed and pulled through the cornrow.
