Loc Love Lives here

Beauty

We take ourselves pretty seriously here at LLLH but that doesn't mean we don't know how to have fun! We love to see Black women and our folks across the diaspora shining. Tag IG photos with #locloveliveshere to be featured on our Instagram. Connect with us on Twitter and Facebook as well!

Culture

Founded in 2013 Loc Love Lives Here is a unique online destination where the intersections of beauty and politics are discussed through a pro Black feminist lens. Our community quickly amassed over 15,000 followers and spawned the annual #BestOfLocsAwards as well as the #ITaughtMarcJacobs hashtag campaign featured in HuffPost

during the Marc Jacobs 'twisted mini bun' fiasco. Moving forward we'll be bringing our community offline and into real time contact. We value sisterhood, authenticity, collectivism and critical thought as methods of overcoming Eurocentric beauty ideals and social norms and welcome you to join the conversation.

Politics

Tired of feeling like YOUR natural isn't good enough or being ostracized for not being 'natural' at all? Bummed about Shae Moisture's drastic changes in marketing? This is the place to talk about it without fear of judgement, ridicule and some of the one dimensional conversations you might be used to. Check out the workshops we offer on the politics of black hair here.

Bring us to your school, job or organization to have some tough but necessary conversations. We have your back.
