When you see these SUPER-CUTE & SEXY Sisterlocks styles you're going to feel like getting your own (if you don't have yours installed).
I searched the net for the best-looking long, medium and short sisterlocks hairstyles that will give you an idea of how great Black women look while rocking these bad girls!
Back in the day loc styles weren't as popular as they are these days.
You'll see gorgeous women with kinky-textured hair wearing these chic twists everywhere you look, all the way from the corporate boardroom and various workplaces to the red carpet in Hollywood to the dog park in NYC while rocking their "Black mixed with Blessed" fashion tees.
Many women wonder what's the difference between dreadlocks and sisterlocks? What are sisterlocks? The answer is simple:
Sisterlocks are much thinner locs, usually about half the thickness of traditional locs, if not thinner. Sisterlocks are unique because they are created using a trademarked hair locking technique that doesn't require you to use of any natural hair products.

You can still start the sisterlocks process even with permed/relaxed hair, the caveat is that you need at least 1 1/2" of new growth. Traditional locs are commonly started on completely natural hair, that has never been chemically processed.
Some think sisterlocks are the same as micro braids, yes, sisterlocs can serve as your starter locs and eventually become full locks, but when you get your installation they are smaller and more discreet than full dreadlocks.
You gotta love the flair on this sista's blonde sisterlocks.

Just so you know.... Many people think micro braids are the same as sisterlock styles, that's not true.
Micro-braids require a different installation technique and turn out looking different. The thing that they do have in common is that they are expensive like sisterlocks and can also be used as starter locs.
It feels good, when you KNOW you look amazing....
Sis is just basking in her own beauty.
People often wonder if sisterlocks hairstyles can be undone.... The answer is yes, although sisterlocks are intended to be a permanent natural hairstyle, they can be removed with a lot of hours worth of work.
According to some leading sisterlocks specialists, sisterlocks are far easier to take out during the first 6 months of sisterlock development after installment.
Removing sisterlocks hairstyles is basically the same process as that of removing dreadlocks.
For those who like to add some color or tint to natural hair, these cute, red sisterlocs are true natural hair inspiration.

Yes, there are pros and cons to having sisterlocks. The price can be too mush at times, they can be crazy expensive, difficult to remove, so an so on...
At the end of the day though:
There is nothing like wearing your own crown, your own luscious natural hair without any excuses.
Rocking their Africa-inspired sisterlocks show that these women truly LOVE THEIR HAIR.
Make no mistake, Many naturals have been sisterlocked for multiple years now.
Since the early 2000's!
And now, all of a sudden people tell these sisters that they love their hair.
Here's the catch though:
Then they go “it’s such a big commitment “
Some find comments like that SOOOOO weird, Like.....Ma....
It’s.... your.... own.... hair.
It's God's SPECIAL GIFT to you and yours. PeriodT. (See "Black Girl Magic PERIODT" Shirts on Sale Here)
Why is it something "so big" to commit to your own hair? God gave it to us for a reason, right?
It's a BLESSING to actually look like you and then acturally get used to it.
