I’m preparing for a fun month of 29 natural hair styles. In case you haven’t heard, I plan on doing a different natural hair style for every day in February, and I will not spend more than $29 on hair accessories. You can find the rules of my 29 styles, 29 days, $29 challenge here.
To get ideas, I have been combing the Internet to find simple yet creative hair styles. Remember, I don’t have the length that many mature lockers have. To get an idea of the length on my micro locs, check out my length here. I consider my hair to be short.
I have compiled a few inspirational photos that I plan to mimic next month. If you have any ideas for me, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By Terez Howard Twist and Curves so graciously allowed me to post this picture of Asha Mandela, the Guiness Book of World Records holder for the longest locs. Asha’s locs reach 19 feet, 6 inches. While I know that very, VERY few of us will have locs anywhere near that length, I found this creative hair style inspiring. Related Posts:No Related Posts
By Terez Howard When I made the decision to get locs, I knew that a micro size was for me. It was an easy choice. More than 1 year later, I have not been disappointed. I chose micro locs because they give you the freedom to do intricate styling, not to be confused with more styling options. I am not saying that because I have micro locs, I can do more styles than someone with traditional dreadlocks. I am saying that I can do intricate work with the tiny parts. But you might not have it so easy. Some start with Sharpie sized locs and long for pencil thickness. Other start with micro locs and combine to a traditional size.
