It took me at least an hour to prepare the yarn before I started wrapping. I used 6 strings to braid my hair and then 6 strings to wrap. I'll probably use less for the braids next time though. Then I just tied the ends multiple times and burned them.
I installed this hairstyle because I have been thinking about locing my hair and I like the look. This is a hairstyle you can have a lot of fun with because yarn can be bought in an array of colours and a lot people also use loc jewelry to accessorize.
