WHAT OUR GODDESSES ARE SAYING
“As an artist, I wanted a hairstyle that best represented me and knew Goddess Locs would be the perfect fit. I also wanted my Locs to look real, easy to manage and to last! After doing a lot of research, and speaking to others, It was clear that there was no other choice, but Dr. Kari. On the day of treatment, she was extremely kind, professional and attentive to me and my hair. Her quality of work is AMAZING and I couldn’t be happier with the results!”
- Sonhara E.
“When I saw Dr. Kari's creation on Meagan Good it was Love at first sight. I flew from NY to LA to see Dr. Kari and was not disappointed! This style works for me because it's light weight, easy to care for and works well with my lifestyle as a personal trainer. So far, I have had Goddess Locs installed twice and have worn them for about 4 months at a time (with maintenance). I can ‘t wait for install number three in the next few months!”
