We’re no stranger to jumping on the latest hair trends. Whether it’s the looks taking TikTok by storm or an Ariana Grande inspired ponytail, we like to have our finger on the pulse for the must-try hair trends. Enter the ‘Goddess Locs’ hairstyle – the one that everyone is talking about. This hairstyle was inspired by Lisa Bonet and born from a partnership between stylist Dr. Kari Williams and the actress Meagan God.
Goddess locs stand apart from the traditional loc extensions because of their curled ends and freeform look. What we love about this trend is that it gives you the look of locs without having to make a long-term commitment.
Do you want to find out more about the Goddess locs trend? We’re sharing everything that you need to know about how the Goddess loc trend came into style and how you can give it a try.
The ‘Goddess Locs’ look began to take shape in 2015 when Meagan Good approached Williams to ask about creating a loc extension hairstyle that would recreate the natural locs of Lisa Bonet. The goal was to create extensions that could look as much like natural locs as possible.
It took years of work and Williams’ extensive experience within the industry to create the extensions that have been quickly nicknamed the ‘Goddess Locs’ after originally being called the ‘Meagan Good Locs’.
Though it was not easy, she was able to use her years of experience to create a style that would later become known as goddess locs. The style was dubbed “Meagan Good locs” for a while before Williams coined the new name.
The cost of your Goddess Locs will largely depend on whether you’re installing them yourself or visiting a hair salon. We recommend going to a professional who is trained in this technique to ensure that your Goddess Locs are installed correctly and safely. You can expect to pay a hefty price – anywhere up to $1,000 – for this kind of installation due to the time commitment.
While you may find a stylist who will charge a lesser fee, they’re usually not offering the same quality of work and your hair may end up paying the price in the long run.
While this look was designed to not require a long-term commitment, you can still expect to get three to four months of wear from this hairstyle. It’s more limited than traditional locs extensions as your hair will gradually start to enter a locking process. It’ll be easier to remove the extensions and prevent damage if you remove them within this time frame. Application is also one of the most important steps for non-synthetic hair extensions when creating the Goddess Locs look.
Goddess Locs are a hairstyle that requires more than a little TLC. You’ll want to ensure that your hair is getting enough moisture to prevent your natural hair from starting to break. You want to ensure that you’re carrying for your natural hair while wearing your new hairstyle. It’s worth investing in a hydrating spray that you can quickly apply to your hair every day to keep it hydrated and healthy.
If your Goddess Locs were installed correctly, you shouldn’t have any issues with removing them. It’s best to have a detangler cream on hand to help soften your hair and give it a boost of hydration when you are removing the loc. You’ll also want to use a product to help remove the build-up of oil in your hair after wearing your Goddess Locs. If your Goddess Locs are removed correctly, you shouldn’t experience any hair loss or breakage.
Goddess Locs aren’t a hairstyle for everyone. The main complaint that most people have about this hairstyle is the weight of the extensions and the tension that you might experience for the first two weeks after your installation. Before you invest in the Goddess Locs, you can start out by trying twists or braids before gradually progressing to the Goddess Locs look.
What we love about the Goddess Locs extension is how versatile they are as a protective hairstyle. They’re unlike any other style of locs on the market and are perfect for styling – just like your normal hair. You can do anything from a bun to braid or a ponytail with your Goddess Locs.

Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020. Changing up your hairstyle can be as much a statement of your personality and development as it is about fashion. In 2020, many of us had to do our hair from home and master the art of the box-dye and even cutting our own fringe. We hope that this year we get to return to the salons for a professional cut. With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
Frizz hair can be a nightmare during the summer. The humidity, combined with your naturally frizzy hair, can be a girl’s worst nightmare when the temperatures start to rise. Frizz is when your hair doesn’t align straight and is caused by moisture that swells-up your hair. Your hair naturally becomes frizzier as the humidity around you goes above the level of moisture and water in your hair. Whether you’re indoor or outdoors, your hair naturally absorbs moisture from the air. After your hair has consumed all this moisture, it starts to swell and become frizz.
