Have you every tried curling your locs or making them wavy? Hands down, this is one of our favourite locs hairstyles, which is why we had to put it at number 1.

Editor’s tip: To get the look simply pin up your locs into twisted knots and leave them that way for a day or two and voila, you have curls or waves, depending on the size of the knots and how long you leave them in.
