Q:

What do Sisterlocks look like?

A:

Sisterlocks look like thin dreadlocks. Sometimes they can also look like small individual braids. Women who are locking their hair often get Sisterlocks to transition their hair into a dreadlock style.

Sisterlocks were created by Dr. JoAnne Cornwell in 1993. To create Sisterlocks, a special tool that creates grid-shaped parts in the hair and a twisting device that shapes the hair into locks are used. Sisterlocks are considerably thinner than traditional dreadlocks and can be styled in a number of ways, including up-dos and French rolls. Sisterlocks is a trademarked company, and the hair can only be installed by stylists who have been Sisterlocks-certified.
