Meagan Good’s been rocking the loc look for some time now, trading in her signature shaved pixie for the waist-length extensions roughly a year-and-a-half ago. And last night, the actress debuted a fresh set of the beloved goddess locs in a new blonde hue with dark roots at the Westwood, California Premiere of “The Star.”

Meagan looked stunning in all white with the light blonde locs that perfectly complemented her brown skin. She also looked blissfully in love hugged up on husband Devon Franklin who produced the project.

In an interview with Refinery 29, Meagan’s hairstylist, board-certified trichologist Dr. Kari Williams, explained when she started working with the 36-year-old in 2015 she had just one wish: to make her hair look like Lisa Bonet’s. “She was so passionate and convinced that I could do it, but I told her it literally wasn’t possible,” Dr. Williams told the site. “That’s Lisa Bonet’s natural hair!”

What Dr. Williams was able to do, however, is install beautiful goddess locs which, unlike faux locs, are made using real hair as opposed to synthetic hair, and are lighter in weight and more natural looking. There’s also one other defining characteristic: “The wavy ends distinguish goddess locs from faux locs,” Dr. Williams explained.

As Refiner 29, explained, to create the locs, Dr. williams “attached a base piece of hair to the braid and created a two-strand twist which provided the cylinder shape.” She also advised that “the twist should be wrapped from scalp to end, but don’t wrap the end itself — you want it to be loose and wavy.”

While it will definitely take a lot of work to complete your whole head, goddess locs can last up to four months so it might be worth the four (or more) hours it’ll take to install. You can also always hire a professional and save yourself the stress.
