Why The Loc Fest
and Where the Idea Came From
In recent years, the explosion of the Natural Hair Movement has spread worldwide, encouraging women of all races to move away from processed hair to natural and Loc’d styles. Creating a new society that exchanges tips, swap products, and share the stories of their journey with the mission for women & men with naturally textured hair. From elementary schools and team sports, to the armed forces and corporate America, natural hairstyles have pushed and gained acceptance as never before. Loc Fest aims to debunk the myths and misconceptions of what Locs’ represent and the comfort and grace of wearing them.
