The Salon

Welcome to The Loc Shop, founded in 1999 by Mama Doris in Washington, DC. The Loc Shop was originally opened as “The Dreadloc Shop”; the name was later changed in 2009 in an effort to remove any negative connotation as related to the wearing of “locs”. The shop was opened to accommodate the community in starting, maintaining and caring for locs. We service men, women and children. We are an APPOINTMENT ONLY salon and we believe in personalized, one on one service. Long waits, unprofessional staff and overbooking will never be found here.

The staff of the shop is highly experienced and skilled in the area of natural and loc’d hair care. Each of us has worn or currently sports locs or natural hair as our style of choice. We do what we know and our goal is to promote clean, healthy happy hair. As we grow, we share with our clients, and for the past 11 years, they have continued to grow with us. We guarantee that each experience will be professional, relaxing and accommodating.

We look forward to meeting you.
