Can anyone tell me how does Busta wear his hair in cornrows and locs at the same time.

:pop I wanna know too!! My own little theory is the front of his head is full of "New Growth" that is not retwisted.

My son's barber has locs and cornrows in front. The reason is because his hair is thinning. (male pattern baldness) Some of his locs thinned out until they fell off. He cornrows the new growth around the balding area so that it looks better.

Maybe Busta might have this situation too.

whatever it is, i love busta's hair! i thought he just had his locs cornrowed. i haven't seen it up real close so i never thought about him having loose hair cornrowed in front. another aj/106&park situation! :shock

There's no locks around the front and sides.. its loose hair that he cornrows up like AJ from 106 n park.. Very creative and cool looking. But I like busta's alot betta than AJ's.

Now that makes sense. I was just curious. Has anyone seen a up close picture that they could post? I really enjoy the creativity that some people have with natural hairstyles.

I used to have a pic of busta's locs a few years ago when he was grwing out the front of his hair. He used to have locs all over, but snipped the front. :cen I think his style is innovative, and proff of loc versatility.

FAKE?! Really? I remember when his locs were only 4 inches long! He was in A Tribe Called Quest Video "Scenario".....

Busta has been loced for a looooooong time. He started when he was with the group Leaders of the New School. I doubt seriously that his locs are fake. I think he's just cut some and left the ones in the back there.

I really like his hair, i think it very different and i think one reason he might have some cornrows is to be more versitile.

remember that video, the name escapes me at right now...? anywayz he cut ALL of his hair off, then suddenly he had a crap load of dreds again.

i could be wrong... it could have been some special affects, but if he cut them and grew 'em back that quick, i wanna know the secret!

Yeah FeePee, I do remember that video. It was at the end of it and they showed him getting his hair cut off. I tripped out when I saw that and waited to see him appear on something else so I could examine his new doo after his big chop. I saw him on a video show right after the video played and he had a head full of hair! I was like "WHAT THE....! :shock" After that, I assumed it was all special effects. You know Busta is very innovative with his videos.....he's the male Missy Elliott.

He uses a lot of Special FX though. :pop

That was that song he did with Kelis..."Busta, what it is right now?" or something like that.

Now this is an interesting combo. How do you cornrow the new growth without the hair being totally loose :-P I mean wouldn't you have have to pull the hair out of the locs just to do the cornrow?

I saw the making of the busta/kelis video....it was all special effects. That's all im sure about...i'm not sure if his dreads are fake (i hope not) and i'm not sure how he achieves his styles...but i do wanna know.

he had locs since leaders of the new school, i doubt if they are fake now. he does have the front braided with the edges shaped up and it looks nice. a lot of brothas started copying his style, but i do like it.

he did say that video was effects, that he did not cut them off, just special effects. cuz i was like NOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I have a sistah friend who does this w/ her locs sometimes. Hers were started in neat little rows, sort of like when you part the hair for individual braids, so she is able to cornrow her locs all the way to the back of her head.

It looks like poor Busta also has had some breakage, which is probably why it's shaved up front with some un-loc'ed hair braided. Whoever his loctician is is the stuff because most loc wearers w/ these problems would've probably given up a long time ago, but his have been transformed into his own unique style.

that&#39;s how i assumed he achieved his styles. regardless, his locs are fly and they really suit him.

ok, i&#39;m actually glad to hear he didn&#39;t REALLY cut his hair. When i saw the video i was almost screaming cuz i luv dat man&#39;s hair. And i really didn&#39;t lust after him till he did that video with Mariah Carey. For some reason he just looked sexy than a mug and i SWEAR that man was looking at me

&#39;baby if u give it to me, i&#39;ll give it to you, i&#39;ll do what you want, you know i got it&#39;

My friend who started my locs did this with her daughter&#39;s hair a while back. Her locs are a little longer than shoulder-length. It&#39;s nice how she does all the different styles in front. Very pretty.

Don&#39;t you remember when Busta was in Leaders of the New School? If you have paid any attention to him ( like I have) over the last decade you would have noticed the slow progress he has made. Those big pretty loc didn&#39;t pop out of no where. I beg to differ with your extension theory. :smug

Aswadah
02-20-2004, 02:30 AM
I think we are all pretty clear (if you&#39;ve followed the entire thread) that Busta&#39;s locs are not fake and that he&#39;s just cut the front for unique styling options.

NOW.....

End Quote.

SISTA! Busta was just toooooo sexy in that video. I was like LAWD HAVE MUSSY!! I had never looked at Busta like that before. He was putting the seductive eyes and everything down in that one. He has his own unique sexiness going on, on the down low.

THANK YOU NAPPYKAY, im sure people gotta remember leaders of the new school or at least when Busta did the video with Tribe Called Quest, "Scenario".

I LOVE his locks. Yummy. As for him, he&#39;s not a Chris Webber (my fake husband), but he has sex appeal and the locks SURE do add to it. :thumbsup
