5 Locs Salon you should try in London

Sharing is caring!

For all our locs people, we know how difficult it can be to find the right place to get your beautiful hair washed and maintained. Here are 5 salons we personally tried recently.

 

Adornment 365, the classy experience

Situated in the heart of trendy Brixton and managed by Margot Rodway-Brown, Adornment 365 offers a full, delicate, salon experience with excellent customer service and well-trained staff.You will always leave the salon feeling like a Queen or a King. Prices are a bit above what you can find around but the overall experience is quite amazing.

Tia’s Hair Salon, the cool one

If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere to get your locs maintained, then this is the place to go, just few minutes’ walk from Streatham Hill train station.
The owner Tia is very sweet and always tries to make you feel like at home. Waiting time and transition between Hair wash and styling can sometimes be lengthy as the salon is not huge but staff knows it all about locs.

Morris Roots, the big name

If you have locs you have probably heard about Morris Root! Owner Morris Aberdeen opened his first salon back in 2002 after moving to London from Trinidad in the 90s. Morris Roots has now 3 branches in different locations (Tooting, Highgate and Fulham). Although they cater for natural hair, the main focus is on Locs. There are loads of stories around staff being far from being friendly but as far as we are concerned, we never experienced such an attitude.


Purely Natural, the East London Salon

Purely Natural is situated in Stratford, so this is perfect for all those living East London. The salon itself looks professional, clean and airy, and staff very welcoming. They are usually on time when it comes to appointment. According to comments, they are struggling with natural hair but their locs squad are on point.

 

Locstafari, the little hidden gem

Locstafari is a great little spot located in Catford that caters for Locs and Natural Hair. The staff is very friendly and you will certainly feel amazing. Other very good surprise: there is a sauna, hot tube and steam room! You should definitely check it out.

  • Loctafari not as good as you think left my locs damp and not locked right had to take it out and wash again as it never smell right offered nothing as a form of compensation just said the stylist do her best

  • Got mine started at Morris Roots. My hair is so thick and the woman did the locs really thick, didn’t like them so asked for them to be taken out on my next visit, she was quite grumpy about it but hey ho, they were going to be permanent so I needed to like them.

    Stopped going to them about 7 years ago when they switched stylists on me mid style despite me saying I wasn’t happy about it – the difference between stylists was noticeable in my hair and I was really upset. (Plus, Morris just seemed a bit full of himself to me, his wife is lovely though!)

    Learned Tia had opened a shop in Wandsworth (knew her way before) started going there, followed her to Streatham and have been with her ever since – although now I need a mobile loctician as I have mobility problems which means I can’t always make it to the shop.

  • Started my locks off with Morris roots… It was a beautiful experience, it lasted 6 years until I decided a change was needed so wore my crown short and cropped. I went back to Morris roots to restart my journey again… Highly disappointed… I went online to check their prices and booked accordingly, had my hair done only to be told that I’d have to pay £10 extra… When I told them I checked the prices on line they still refused… Long story short… It’s not the customers fault if you don’t update your prices!
    Anyway… I found me a mobile locktition AND she’s an old friend from school too. Talented and blessed! Check her out for yourself! Facebook Naosheas or http://www.naosheas.co.uk

  • I stopped going to Tia’s as my stylist was away & they gave me another stylists who I had never seen before, cut out my locs with a razor comb, I was very upset & angry as you can imagine..I was not even offered treatment, cover up nothing…..never been back since!

  • I’m not sure what it is but I feel like due to locstafari being so busy they don’t have the time to deal with their customers properly. I’ve been going there for 3 years and at first they were good, but as my locs gave gotten significantly longer I’ve noticed problems with the last 3 appointments i had. My hair is really thick and they have complained (slyly) about it when they wash, twist or style my hair. Recently I noticed white stuff in one or two of my locs and was told it’s fluff or lint, since then every time I’ve been there the amount of white stuff on my hair is increasing and not just on the two but others as well. I’ve been brought to this page because I’m trying to find a person who can help me confirm that this is not dust etc but instead build up from the products they use. It’s embarrassing to have someone behind me looking at my locs as if they’re dirty, and they have never smelt damp or bad so I’m sure it’s not me that isn’t maintaining them properly.

  • Hey, I started my locs with Morris roots and after a few months they started breaking and when I asked the stylist all they could say was it must be medication or hormones but did not offer any solutions. I then started going to Tia’s but left due to having too many people in my head talking to themselves while doing my hair. I now go to a lovely lady called Lima in Streatham but thinking of using a mobile stylist as my mobility is not good anymore.

  • I used to go to Morris Roots between 2003 and 2007. I was really happy with the overall service, especially when Morris himself did my hair. As I lived some distance away I decided to use the branch in Highgate, which immediately regretted that decision. Customer service is an issue at Morris Roots , which I believe Morris must try harder to address. He has family members that he has placed in prominent positions to head up the three branches and I believe they are letting him down by not instilling the great customer service that I know is so important to Morris. Although I no longer go there ( due to medical reasons) I do find it upsetting to still be hearing these negative feedback from people I know who still go there and I’m sorry to say it is still around customer service. My advice to any who attend Morris Roots and is not happy with the service should complain in writing directly to Morris himself! He cares about his business and wants him business to do well. He has a big heart. If you complain in writing , he will have something to work with.

  • I have also been to Locstafari. Never against ! After a not very good living session with someone I had not booked to see. I was then given a poor hair cut !My friend said I looked like Worzel Gummage!!!! All for the pleasure of £150. I went back and could not get a refund .They just offered to do a better cut. However, the attitude was so naff as I dared to complain that I walked out!I did not want those bad vibes on my hair or near me. I went down to a guy in Vauxhall and he rescued the mess on the same day and did not even charge me! He said he was sorry for me paying all that money and the hair wasn’t even loxed properly.Not good.He’s good at cutting too! Oh and I stopped going to Morris Roots too. Customer service ..RANK!

  • Locs4life….ummmm. First I called calling but got no reply so texted. Got an appt but had to cancel with ample notice due to an emergency. So I rebooked. All appeared well.

    After waiting 6wks, Locs4life decided to cancel my appt with no notice due to a mixup of client details? Very professional….NOT. Worse was she came recommended via 2 longstanding clients.

    Lociticans please, please remain professional there is no excuse because we are the same hue. I work too hard for my money to be insulted and treated poorly.

  • I had sisterlocks in 2004, too small. Twisted them, created medium locs. Now that they had grown just under 14 years, I decided that because of hair loss due to MS medication..I had to cut them off. No regrets, kind of like my hair texture but, I want to start a new journey of locs. Good salons? Everything is money orientated now. Where are the ‘good hands & good heart?’ loctitans located in the UK?
