Top 6 faux locs Afro hairdressers in London
In the previous blog post, we looked at the top knotless braids hairdressers in London which has hopefully helped you find a braider near you that you like. Similarly, this post is here to also help you find the top Afro hairdressers in London, but more specifically faux locs hairdressers near you! Like knotless box braids, locs are a great style to opt for as it provides versatility and is also protective. These days people are changing their hairstyles more frequently and are looking for an alternative to traditional box braids, locs are becoming an increasingly popular option that many people choose to wear.
Locs themselves have been around for quite a while and exist in many variations. From faux locs to butterfly locs to soft locs. Locs exist as a temporary protective hairstyle and can take many different forms.
How do locs differ from dreadlocks?
Remember, what I am talking about here is the faux locs that are meant to imitate locs and are to be taken out after a period of time. However, dreadlocks are meant to be a more long-term hairstyle that could last for decades. Both are great hairstyles that people may choose for different reasons - from religious to looking for a short temporary protective hairstyle that meets what they are looking for. As previously mentioned, this post will be focused on the latter. So, sit back, enjoy and take it all in whilst I walk you through some of my favourite Afro hairdressers in London who do faux locs as a hairstyle.
Tips before booking your Afro Hairdressers
Once you have found an Afro hairdresser near you, click on the style and you will be taken to a page where you can see photos, read reviews and fill out a few simple details to confirm your booking. These may include (but are not limited to) your location, the date you wish to get your hair done, and the time of the appointment. You will then send a request to book a hairdresser - it is that simple!
Each hairdresser is an independent hair professional, so ensure you check out their terms and requirements before making a booking. Everything you need to know will be available on the hairstyle you are wishing to book. For any additional questions that you may have about the hairstyle, you can also always speak to your hairdresser directly by using the messaging function on their FroHub business profile.
