Renowned Celebrity Loctician Expands To Philadelphia with the Opening of Second Loc Salon

July 6, 2018 (Atlanta, GA)–Atlanta-based master loctician M. London recently announced the opening of her second salon, Locmama², in Philadelphia, Pa. Having started her loc career in New Jersey and New York, M. London’s 20 years of of natural hairstyling experiences has led her to become a premier loc stylist who is responsible for many of the signature loc styles worn by Grammy nominated R&B recording artist Ledisi. Partnering with Stephanie Devose, who has worked alongside M. London since 2006, M. London will be bringing the Locmamas philosophy of nourishing and protecting hair to Philadelphians starting on July 4th while continuing to service her Atlanta location.
Having started her natural hair journey in 1992, Michelle turned to styling natural hair exclusively in 1995 despite words of discouragement that came from within the industry. Not one to let people tell her “no,” Michelle went full sail ahead, and her career has been blooming ever since. She opened her first natural hair salon in 2002, appropriately named Ethnicity. In 2009 she began working for Grammy-nominated R&B artist Ledisi and was responsible for the iconic styles that were featured on her Pieces of Me and Turn Me Loosealbums. Relocating to Atlanta in 2012, Michelle opened the doors to the original Locmamas a year later in 2013 and has worked her way to becoming one of Atlanta’s top authorities on loc’d styling. If all of her accomplishments haven’t made it clear, Michelle is not one to slow down. In 2018 she launched her online academy to educate fellow stylist and locticians, Locmama’s Academy, which features online classes where stylists can train right from their homes or salons.
Now, the opening of her Philadelphia salon is the newest on M. London’s list of achievements. Offering clients services such as loc maintenance, styling, repairs, sisterlocks installation, loc extensions, twist outs, flat twist, coils, trims, retightening, loc coloring, and conditioning, Locmamas²  is the one-stop-shop destination for all of loc needs.
