YANNIE THE LOCOLOGIST®
Our Story & Mission
Locs By Yannie started in 1998 on the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad & Tobago because there was and still is a need for natural 'Locs Care’ free of chemicals, dyes, gels, or any unnatural products or processes. Being born into the Rastafarian culture and lifestyle our work is not about techniques for Locs. Though we have a knowledge of five innovative processes designed to manage your locs without the use and harm associated with clips, hair gel or heat from hair dryers and other unnatural products and processes that will cause breakage and damage to your hair and scalp, our passion is to help ALL our clients obtain and maintain healthy Locs, the natural way, the holistic way.
We do not twist or palm roll, or put the pressure or strain on your hair, scalp or follicles that are caused by these methods. Immediately after our 'Loc Sessions' you can Swim, wear a hat or cap, shower, go to the gym and even wet your hair and not worry if your hair will unravel as it does by twisting and other 'temporary' techniques and methods. Most importantly you do not have to get your Locs maintained every 2-3 weeks. In fact we insists that clients DO NOT see us for less than two months.
Yannie is NOT a 'loctician', hair stylist, hair dresser or beautician. She's a 'Locologist ®'. Her work is not on elaborate hair styles and designs but instead she created this business to educate Loc Kings and Queens that having Locs is not "hairstyle" but a lifestyle and to view Locs holistically because our hair are extensions of our body, and if our bodies are healthy, our hair will be also. Yannie will teach you the correct ways to care for your locs inside and out, so that your crown can grow beautiful and healthy.
We will teach you how to "EMBRACE YOUR NEW GROWTH"
