Loc Styles: Braided Nubian Loc Crown


Twelve years ago I decided to loc my hair. I was natural for 4 years prior to making the commitment to loc my hair because my wash days were tiring me out. Generally, I wore head wraps, but would do a style on the weekends. I was in college and didn’t have time to worry about my hair. However, I knew staying natural was the only way for me to remain healthy so I gathered my courage and embraced myself and all the kinkiness of my hair. During my freshman year of college, I realized that hair was not that important and if I was going to take 17 credit hours I was either going to study or spend that time on my hair. The choice for me was a no-brainer, I chose my education.

Now 12 years later, I am resolved that I made the best decision ever. To keep from growing tired of my locs.

The choice for me was a no-brainer, I chose my education. Now 12 years later, I resolved that I made the best decision ever. To keep from growing tired of my locs, I like to try new hairstyles. 

Therefore, each Wednesday, I will post a new loc/hair style on my YouTube channel. This week’s style was inspired by a braided crown that was popular in the late 90s. Below is a picture of the style with a modern new millennial twist.

What’s great about this Nubian Loc Crown is:

  • This loc crown takes five minutes or less.
  • Only one product is needed (You Be-Natural’s Edge Tamer)  and it’s optional.
  • No need to use a lot of hair  pins
  • It’s quick, easy, and cute.

  • This hairstyle is really cute. I appreciate a style that last several days. You can accessorize it up and everything.

    I just got some You Be-Natural products, I can’t wait to try them.

  • Becc

    Loving the style. I offen think of locing my hair for the same reason you mentioned. But I am afraid of not having versatility. I’ll be looking forward to your tutorials.

  • Cynthia Williamston

    Loving the style you chose. I’ve been natural for 25 years and love the look. I’ll be watching for your next style.

  • Shantel Turner-Collins

    The little girl style looks very cute. I’m also on the hunt for new styles for my daughter’s natural hair.

  • Shelly

    I love the crown look! While I don’t have locs I am natural. I also use some of the products by You B Natural and I like them. Especially the moisturing cream!

  • What a nice way to change things up. Sometimes people think locs are versatile but as you’ve shown they are.

  • This is a really cute style. I wanted to loc my hair, but was hesitant because of style options. I need to look more on youtube because the same thing I can do with my loose natural hair, I can do with locs.
