Locing is a process rather than an instant hairstyle. The process begins with palm rolling your hair, requires patience, and commitment to obtain beautiful locs. The idea that locs are dreadful is erroneous.

My focus is to assist you with maintaining and acquiring locs without the use of extensions. I do not latch hook, color, back-comb hair, or work with straight hair. I am proficient at working with coiled hair.

You will receive the benefit of 20 years experience and knowledge of preventing and removing product build-up and starting and maintaining locs.

I respond to request that includes photos within 24 - 48 hours.

    I have been to see Naz twice now and have an appointment to see her again soon. She has been wonderful in helping me start and maintain my growing locs. Her work is professional. Her company is pleasant and her advice has been excellent. I would recommend Locsandtwists to anyone looking to start or maintain beautiful locs.

    Thank you for taking the first step, sending photos of your hair. Photos are required to determine if I could be of service. The research that you did on the locing process served both of us. I appreciate that you've allowed me the opportunity to assist with the care of your locs. See you soon!

    Naz is great. I have always left satisfied. She thoroughly washes my hair and makes sure that my locs are clean which is the most important part. I moved to Phoenix in September of 2012 and I've been to a few loctitians but Naz was the best out of all of them. She's very nice, helpful, and if I have to leave a message she always returns it in a quick manner. I've always received compliments after she retwisted my locs. Thanks Naz!

    If you want your hair done right, please go check at Naz at Locandtwist!! Not only is she very knowledgeable about the locking process, she is also one of the sweetest ladies i know! I've been going to her for about 10 months now, and i couldn't be more happy with my results! My hair looks amazing! Having dreadlocks is a process, and must be done right! And she is the right person for the job!

    Naz...has literally brought my hair back to it's beautiful texture and length. I had braid extensions for years and my hair was starting to thin out. So I took a chance, called Naz. That was was over a 1-1/2 ago. She really cares about the person and their hair. Plus has great prices. I would not go anywhere else.

    Locsandtwists B. from Locs and Twists replied to this review on October 18, 2012:

    Hi Shondra, I just read your review and it's awesome and so are you, thanks
    a million.

  • 5/5 stars October 17, 2012

    I started the locking process just over a year ago! From the moment I talked to Naz on the phone I just knew that my hair was going to be in the Right Hands!

    My Locs are official and after one year of service I couldn't ask for any thing better! They are healthy, and under the best care of Naz!

    Naz is very knowledgeable and skilled in the hair locs business! There are just some people that you are blessed to have come into your life and Naz is definitely one of them!!!

    My hair and my life will never be the same! Naz is very warm and personable, Professional, caring and truly an Expert in Locs! Everything - from the meet and greet, to the thoroughness, the education on loc care, the accommodations, and the gifted hands - has been a positive experience! I have adopted her as My Az Mom! I just Love her!!

    I have absolutely no complaints!! None!

    I love the OVERALLL CARE that is provided by NAZ! She has a very good understanding about HOW to care for and treat hair. In order to have healthy, beautiful and neat looking locs, the hairstylist must know what products and care are needed to get that desired look. I saw a client of Naz' one day and I asked her client, " OOOH, Who does your hair?" and she gave me Naz' phone number and that was the beginning of my journey with Naz. She is able to develop your hair into beautiful, strong, and vibrant locs. Naz conditions the hair with pleasant natural scents leaving the hair feeling fresh and free. I really appreciate her wholistic and natural approach to the care of hair. I have since moved to Atlanta and have not found anyone remotely close to what she has done for my hair. I would whole-heartedly recommend her anytime. jj

    "Miss Naz", as my daughter calls her, has been not only the most skilled loctician that we have found, but also patient (little girl started her locs at 4 and is now 9), kind and a source of great information on maintaining and starting beautiful locs.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common work I perform is starting, maintaining, and separating locs that have grown together. I use the palm roll method, ensuring that each loc is neither to small nor too large as they become thinner overtime. This, along with shampooing is an extremely important part of the journey. Too much hair product will build up and and cause dull and heavy locs. Therefore, I'm conscientious about product usage and shampooing well. During your service, I will provide you with information to assist with caring for locs on a long term basis, just as I'd cared for mine. Please feel free to arrive with a list of questions, if I don't know have answers, I will do the research for you.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Within the last 30 days, I've treated several locs that were dull, had product build up, and that were growing together. Are your locs heavy, dull, and stiff? If there's heavy product build up, I recommend 3 consecutive treatments that may take up to 3 hours. Ask about this service if you want to decrease product build-up, add luster, and achieve free flowing locs.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Contact me to learn why not to use beeswax, Shea butter, or greasy hair products.

Each loc should be approximately the circumference of a number two pencil.

An experienced loctician have started the locing process over 50 times and have maintained locs for at least 2 years to acquire an in depth knowledge of the locing process.

A loctician wants to see your hair prior to providing a quote.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. How many times after leaving a salon did you feel that your locs were not thoroughly shampooed, that too much product was used in your hair, or that your hair wasn't provided the care that it required?

My work stands out because I thoroughly shampoo your locs, use the correct amount of hair products to avoid product build-up, and provide you with the service that you deserve.

We discuss hair products during your visit because the correct usage cannot be overstated. As well, I share what I've learned about locs, having had them for 13 years and for 20 years, I've assisted others during their locing journey.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I enjoy passing on information about how to care for natural hair.

I enjoy knowing that you are pleased with how I care for your hair.

One of my clients said that our visits are workshops because we interact, share information, and find solutions to hair challenges.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Will you start locs with 2 inches of hair? Yes

What about straight and loosely curly hair? I am not proficient at starting locs for straight, slightly straight, or loosely curled hair.

Do you dye, add extensions, or braid hair? No.

My locs are dull and dry, can you help? Yes, my specialty is to help you obtain lively locs.

How much does it cost? My fees depends on the length, the amount, and the condition of your hair. Please send photos for a quote.

After sending a photo of the front, the back, and the side of your hair, when will you contact me? Within 2 days, often sooner.

Would you take a look at my hair? Yes, complimentary consultations are available.

May I schedule evening and weekend appointments. Yes!

Do you have walk-in service? No

How much lead time do you require to schedule an appointment? Typically, 2 - 3 days notice.

Do you offer same day emergency services? Yes, when possible, the fee is $35.00 "in addition" to all other services provided to you.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Everyone who does hair, are not trained locticians.
