About this pro

How does your service stand out?

How many times after leaving a salon have you felt that your locs were not thoroughly shampooed or that your hair wasn't provided the care that it required? My work stands out because I thoroughly shampoo your locs. When starting or re-twisting, I use the correct amount of hair products to avoid product build-up. I'll provide deep conditioning when necessary, clipping and/or trimming, and information to assist with maintaining your hair. We discuss your plans for your hair. As well, I share what I've learned about wearing locs for 13 years and servicing others for 20 years.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I take pride in my work, environment, and ensure that you are comfortable prior to providing service. 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.

    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!

    I am in the Tucson area and from what I have seen, Locs and Twists is where I want to go to start my locs. I would like to make an appointment in the next few weeks and am trying to connect with Naz directly. Any help with that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    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!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
A complimentary consultation, inspection of scalp, shampoo, condition, clip/trim.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Wearing locs for 13 years and performing the work for 25 years.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Individual basis! Fair prices!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Training
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common work I perform is starting, maintaining, and/or 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. 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.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Contact me to learn why not to use beeswax, Shea butter, or greasy products in your hair. Each loc should be approximately the circumference of a number two pencil. An experienced loctician have started the locing process over 30 times and have maintained locs for at least 3 years to acquire an in depth knowledge of the locing process. A loctician wants to see your hair prior to providing a quote.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How much experience does the professional have working with locs and natural hair. Three years plus, is best!
