With three decades in the entertainment industry, several brand ambassadorships, and two best-selling books under her belt, Meagan Good is the true definition of Black excellence.
And while she’s just a year into her 40s, this leading lady still looks as stunning as she did in her teen years.
She serves face (with an ageless, radiant, and gleaming glow), body (we don’t know anyone else who’s managed to still look as sexy), and hair (she’s got a whole repertoire of timeless hairstyles).
From pixies, fluffed and feathered bob, and undercut loc twists, Meag G has inspired some major #hairgoals.
So, if you look up to this Queen, or just want some loc style inspiration, here are some of our favorite Meagan Good loc’d up looks over the years.
Prepare to be wowed!
Undercut Loc Twists
For something regal but edgy, make like Ms. Good, who gets creative with her goddess locs by adding a cool undercut. It’s a real head-turner!
Barn Red Faux Locs
Faux locs are an incredible way to add some length and volume to your natural strands, a la Ms. Meag, G. Plus, with a bit of color, you’ll have yourself a flirty yet sophisticated look.
One of Meagan Good’s favorite styles is the goddess locs (she actually rocks them in Harlem, the latest comedy series created by Tracy Oliver and in which Ms. Good plays Camille).
The golden brown strands scream saucy and give you that modern carefree style that we’re still not over.
And do we really have to describe the curls? Muy bieno!
Half-Shaved Long Locs
Take a cue from Ms. Good – If Ya Nasty and make a bold statement with this half-shaved locs look. No matter how you rock this style, it’ll always look out-of-this-world.
On those days where your brows are just too sexy to be hidden behind your locs, opt for this Meagan Good-approved topknot.
Simply loop your hair up in a twist, and then lay those bay hairs with a super-incredible gel like the African Pride Extra Hold Braid, Loc, &Twist Gel ($8) to help smooth out and rock those edges.
Half Up, Half Down Locs
The half-up, half-down style is fall’s best look, and Meagan Good shows us how to rock it with locs. To wear it, twist half of your hair up in a bun and then leave the other half down for a cute but messy look that looks incredible on almost everyone.
Fully Wrapped Locs
Wrapped locs will forever be a mood – it’s timeless, beautiful, and oh so elegant. Plus, it’s the ideal way to make your locs look adorbs while furtively deep conditioning it on the go.
We also love that Ms. Good chose a neutral tone like this one, but you can always mix it up by selecting a fabric that represents your personality and sense of style.
Half-Wrapped, Half Down, Top Knot Bun
Yes, this sounds like a messy tongue twister, but you must admit – Ms. Good owned this look. She rocked it during the premiere of Netflix’s latest thriller movie, Dayshift, and it really flattered her look.
The curve-caressing Dolce & Gabbana dress, dramatic opera gloves, gold metallic platform sandals, Weisheng Paris dangling stunners, and signature smokey eye with a neutral pout, hot damn. Ms. Good – If Ya Nasty killed it!
Famously known as the Lisa Bonet locs, this loc style is legendary. Plus, it’s the edgiest cousin of the messy bun – and gives major ‘bih I’m stylish vibes.’
To rock it, pile your hair into a messy bun and leave a few face-framing pieces for good measure.
On The Up & Up
Topknots get a bad rep for being a ‘lazy girl hairstyle,’ but this look is not lazy at all. Unlike the messy bun and half up, half down look, this style works double duty to give you the edgiest and most flirty look.
To keep your hair moisturized, lightly spray some leave-in conditioning mist and then oil those babies for a healthy-looking sheen. Afterward, flip your locs, gather them at the crown, and secure them with an elastic band (or a cool silver or gold string/) to accessorize – it’ll look like you dropped a sweat while doing it (even if you didn’t).
