Two-toned locs are a great way to show off the two sides of your personality so why not? You could go for more neutral, rustic tones like this dark reddy-brown and gold combination, or you could go a little bolder. It’s a great way to reinvent your current style.

14. Curly Faux Locs

You can’t talk about faux locs without having a mention for these beautiful, bouncing curls. A great way to glam things up and easy to wear, you could even leave your locs to curl overnight giving you more ways than ever to wear your new hair.

15. Pop of Green

Green isn’t a color that many would have chosen when picking faux locs but just look at how beautifully this chick rocks it! You will need to find the right shade of green for you, and we’d always recommend going for a darker green rather than a brighter, toxic green, but it certainly brings a little something different to the table.

16. Braided Half Updo

For those lazy days where you need to do something very simple with your locs, this braided, half updo looks great and takes just moments to do. It’s basically a french braid but with more strands of your locs. It looks great!
