Faux locs in Chicago

With most protective hairstyles, it’s a matter of sitting in the salon chair for a few hours as your stylist installs your braids, weave, or wig—and while a few hours may seem like a lot of time, it’s nothing compared to how much time dreadlocks take to complete. Achieving dreadlocks can take from several months up to a few years to fully attain, so if you love the look of locs but don’t want to commit to the lengthy installation process, faux locs will be of interest to you!

What are faux locs and how are they done? Faux locs are basically a way of achieving the appearance of dreads, without the commitment and hassle! This type of protective hairstyle that is done in a fraction of the time is also known as synthetic dreads or dread extensions. Faux locs take around only around four to nine hours to install on average, and they tend to last around four to six weeks before they need to be redone or touched up. There are a couple of different methods of creating faux locs, but the most popular way is using the wrapping method—which we’ll explain below. But before jumping into the installation process, your faux loc appointment will first begin with prep that includes washing, conditioning, and drying your hair. Like all protective hairstyles, faux locs present best when working with clean hair that’s free of debris and buildup. Once your hair is prepped, your stylist will first braid your hair in sections and feed extension pieces into it if you’re looking to achieve faux locs longer than your natural hair. Then, when your natural hair is braided, they’ll begin to wrap more hair extension pieces around your braids to create a dreadlock-like look. Finally, once everything is tightly wrapped, the ends will be secured, and the process is complete. As an optional last step, you can also opt to level up your faux locs by having your stylist add decorative elements like beads or hair charms.  How do I choose the best service for faux locs in Chicago?  If you’re looking for an amazing salon to visit for faux locs in Chicago, then Booksy will show you the top options for all of Chi-Town!
