In the first of a series on the country’s leading loc salons, we feature Jahzin’s House of Locks in Brooklyn, NY.
JAHZIN HOUSE OF LOCKS opened in April 2006.
Today, Jahzin Goodluck Werq’s salon hosts a variety of services for natural hair. Her specialty is locs.
Jahzin started her career at the age of 13 by braiding and twisting her friends hair on her parents Brooklyn, NY porch. At 17, she was offered the opportunity to work in a natural hair salon also in Brooklyn. By age 20, she decided to pursue her dream of opening a natural hair salon. She wanted a place “where customers are welcomed to relax in a ‘spa-like’ environment.” Jahzin House of Locks seems to fit the bill.
As a Rastafarian woman, Jahzin wants to change how others view locs, and to show how versatile they are. Her creations include updos, and twisted locs. Says Ms. Werq, “Locks was always a natural art I wanted to master in this lifetime.” From the look of these styles, her mastery is well on its way.
