One style that is often overlooked for short starter locs is an updo. I know you’re probably thinking your hair needs to be really long to get a decent updo, but you’re wrong. Even when your baby locs are only a few inches long, you can create an intricate updo with the addition of some Afro-textured hair.

You want to be sure that your using quality afro-kinky hair for the clip-ins so that your locs are not damaged while wearing this style. And a great trick for less stress on your edges while wearing the clips-ins is the use of a headband to camouflage the clips-ins over your locs.
