Hey, loc fam!
Locs are a hairstyle that can be maintained and styled in various ways. There are some critical factors to consider when choosing a loctician for your hair. Do you want your locs in a particular style or natural? Do you have a budget for your locs? Do you want to use heat? How long should your locs be? Do you want loc hair extensions? What kind of products should they use? These are all valid questions to have when searching for a loctician to care for your precious locs.
Whether starting your locs from scratch or getting them retwisted, you want someone highly skilled to do the job. Finding a reputable loctician who can effectively style your hair isn’t easy, but today you’ll learn how to properly vet your next loctician.
Tips for you to consider when searching for your loctician:
Ask friends, family, and/or coworkers whose opinions you value highly for a referral. Knowing someone who has worked with a skilled loctician and seeing examples of their work up close and personal should reassure you that you’re in good hands. If you trust someone enough to ask and have seen the fruits of their labor, there’s no reason to believe you won’t be a fan once you get in their chair.
Check their social media. When considering a loctician, always view their work. Almost all hairstylists, locticians included, will display their work on some type of social media.
Search for reviews online and read the comments on their social media accounts. When people love a stylists’ work, they will likely leave a positive review or comment.
Schedule an in-person consultation with a loctician to see if they will be a good fit for you. Always trust your gut in these situations. If it doesn’t feel right, keep looking.
- Pay attention if the loctician is a good communicator, especially if you’re starting locs from scratch. They should be able to educate you on the entire starter loc process thoroughly. If the loctician acts as if your questions are annoying, they may not be the right loctician for you.
Search the loctician directory on the Locsanity website. Not everyone is aware that Locsanity boasts a loctician network and thoroughly vets the locticians listed in the directory. You always want to ensure that whoever you entrust to care for your hair is knowledgeable, skilled and professional.

It’ll be a match made in heaven!
