    Default Style possibilities

    Hi,
    While I love all the pics of people with long locs, I was wondering if anyone has ever cut their long locs into a style. I think it may be a good alternative to cutting or taking down my locs in furture and provide more ideas than curls or up-dos for new loc wearers. If anyone has pics of short loc haircuts, please share!
    Thanks,

    Also, you can look at thierry baptiste's work. Just google him. He does a lot of creative cuts and color for locs.

    ya~akua, Your styles rock! I was just on your Fotki page. I see that you had yarn in your hair at one point. Was that a "protective style" How did you do it?
