Starter Loc


Starter Locs, also known as baby or beginner locs, is the first stage of the hair loc process. While there are several ways to achieve a starter loc look, all of them are the primary step when you ‘ re going for a faux locs session at a hair salon.

Starter locs are a great way to check out if these dangling strands suit your style or not. They can last anywhere between 3-5 months depending on your hair type and the maintenance you accord to it.


At Elite Braids, we create starter locs using any of the following methods as per your choice:

  1. Two-strand twists
  2. Braids
  3. Loc extensions
  4. Backcombing

The methods are your prerogative, as you can choose any of the above depending on the length you need and the type of hair you have.

Our experienced hair stylists part your hair into sections, the thickness and length of which depends on you. With these starter locs, you can go on to create advanced braiding and locs styles as per your preference.

Two women braided my hair in box braids and they did an awesome job at the Westheimer location. They were very professional, took their time and did an all around awesome job. They held a great conversation and time flew by. I will definitely be a returning customer and recommend them.

I got the Bohemian Goddess Locs! I love the style but absolutely hate the human hair that was used. Within 2 days of my hair being done it was already looking very tangled and nappy... not the locs but the human hair that was used. For the price of the hair it should be better quality. And I can’t comb it without it shredding really bad.... kind of disappointed how bad the human hair is getting by the day.... BUT other than the hair I would recommend!

They do quality work. Everyone was nice and professional and I was very pleased with the outcome of my hair. They listened to my concerns and gave me exactly what I asked for. I definitely recommend this place.
