Now, you are probably wondering what is that in the picture above? It is "Loc Clippings."
I performed my first long layered haircut on a loc client. I used the same procedure that I use for regular loose long hair. It turned out gorgeous. I hope to get some more loc haircut referrals from this client.
All of her locs stayed in tact and condensed. Nothing frizzed up nor exploded. I cut between 2 and 7 inches off. That was a year's worth of growth. I used shears for control, but I did consider the clippers if she wanted a straight bob.
Based on the success from this haircut service, I believe year six is when the loc length and settling period should be safe enough to get a precision layered haircut with the shortest loc length in the crown area being about 10 inches.
This client is due for a full retightening within a few weeks, I will try to get a picture of the haircut at that time when the roots are all neat and groomed again.
*****Update**** As promised, a picture of my client's cut with some curl to it!
