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.

    Good for you and great for your hair!
    Naz is phenomenal. Not only kind but very knowledgeable about hair, especially locs. Everytime I go i get somemore insight about caring for my hair. Her prices are great and she is very accommodating and sensitive to your needs. Shes even easy to get in touch with (email, phone, or text)! She is also just a good person to get to know. While always busy with her organization (Gift Children books) she still makes time for her clients and always has a great attitude. Definitely worth going.

    A WONDERFUL Experience
    Naz is amazing! I was in need of someone to do some serious maintenance on my locs after having tried to do something ridiculous AND being in the process of growing out an undercut. She took an assessment of my hair, gave me a reasonable appointment time and, upon my arrival, gave me the BEST hair washing I've had in a LONG time. If your looking for someone knowledgeable who actually cares about the state of your locs and their maintenance, look no further. Book an appointment with complete confidence!

    Amazing service and very professional. I went to her to get my locs maintained and the wealth of knowledge alone convinced me she was the one I wanted to go to keep my locs maintained. She was quick yet her work was clean and outstanding. I will definitely will be going back to maintain my locs. Thank You!

    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.
    Replied to Kory B. - Oct 14, 2013

    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!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
A complimentary consultation, inspection of scalp, shampoo, condition, clip/trim, as appropriate.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Wearing locs for 13 years and performing the work for over 20 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?
Doing the hair of countless live models.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common services I've provided are for clients who want locs started, maintained, or separated as when they grown untangled. I also assist clients with removing the build-up of products from their hair.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Re-doing the locs of a client whose hair had grown together, was full of products, and mated. This process took 5 hours. Client was relieved to have the weight of build-up hair products on neck, eliminated.
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 has 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?
What does the professional think of locs and natural hair? Have/do they wear natural hair? How many years of experience does the professional have working with locs, in particular.
