My Experience | Goddess Locs

At the end of 2016, I told myself that I wanted to do more, be more, explore other things, and be unafraid to do so. I've always had a love affair with dread locs on men and women. The style has always been so beautiful and unique to me. When the idea of getting them first popped into my head, I googled them to see what they looked like on other women. The first photo that I saw was of Lisa Bonet. And babyyyyyyy... let me tell you as soon as I saw how beautiful, elegant, and sexy she looked, I knew that I wanted them.

*Insert low self-confidence here* Even though I wanted them so bad, I never really thought that I could pull them off. Simply because I was afraid of society's standards of what fits who and that I wasn't "black enough." Another story for another day. 

Fortunately, all of my friends and some family members told me just to go for it. They thought that I would look beautiful with them. With their encouragement and the idgaf attitude that shortly developed after their encouragement, I decided to take the plunge!

 My style inspiration: Lisa Bonet
I'm so obsessed with her!
