Have you ever wanted a particular hairstyle but did not want the maintenance that comes with it? That happened to me a few weeks ago. I love the faux locs style but did not want to sit in a salon for six hours to get them done. Not only that, I did not want to have spend hours taking them out when the time came. So, I began to ponder. The most logical solution to my problem was to create a wig.
After speaking with my sister she said, “Won’t that be a lot of work?” She was right, but I’d rather do the work up front. After it’s done it will be a piece of cake. Wigs are just easier to me. With a lace wig I’m not restricted to just one style. And the best part is, I can take it on and off whenever I feel like it. Besides after spending a few hundred in the salon to get them done, I would eventually have to take them out and then…there goes my style. It will be over, finito. With a wig however, when I’m done with it I can take it off, store it and still wear it again at a later date. It was a no brainer for me.
First, I began to research faux locs techniques. I decided that I wanted it to look as realistic as possible, so I decided that a frontal would be best. I chose a frontal because I wanted the faux locs in the front to look like individual locs, complete with parting. I customized the frontal by plucking the hairline, bleaching the knots, and tinting the lace to match my exact skin color. For the back I did a technique that was not exactly crochet, but it was similar to it. As always, I decided to make this wig glueless, so I added my favorite Qtipp elastic band.
The result? This beautiful Bohemian Faux Locs wig. I got so many compliments on it that I decided to add it to our product collection for the ladies that have the same problem that I had. If your hair is too short for faux locs or if you suffer from alopecia, we now have a wig for you to still achieve this beautiful, exotic look. This wig can be fully customized with bleached knots, plucked hairline, and tinted lace for the most realistic and undetectable look.
