Hair Styling: Loc Petals

I stumbled across a loc tutorial on "loc petals" and fell in love with them.  You really need some extra long locs to complete this loc styling.  The larger locs benefit the most from this technique but even smaller locs can be formed into loc petals.

The larger locs would need to be manipulated one at a time allowing 2 to 3 hours to complete.  Smaller locs wearers would grab multiple locs similar in length and manipulate the petals.

I believe that I am at least another two years away before I would try to sport these loc petals, but for those in their fourth year or more, go for it!


  1. I can't wait when the middle of my hair grow in some more before trying this.

    1. I hear ya! In the meantime, some have used the loc petals in a bun. The buns look elegant with the petals looped throughout it. There may be a loc petal bun tutorial. Surprisingly, some loc wearers have been playing with this styling since 2012. The hair industry is bursting with creativity.
