With free consultations, hair products that only contain natural ingredients, Jojoba-based shampoos, herbal rinses, scalp massages and steaming to ensure a complete chemical free visit, Locks of Nu Natural is the place for you. Founded eleven years ago by Ebony Tynes, who is a certified locktician, natural hair styling savant and dancer, the hair spa is “a body and spirit beautification temple celebrating one of our greatest assets: our natural beauty.” Tynes and her dedicated staff are bent on making sure that clients are not only more informed about their hair and hair care, but that they experience the highest level of quality service possible.
With many hairstyles to choose from like molocs (Mohawk with locks), short natural hairstyles and dreadlock up-dos, it’s no wonder that Locks of Nu Natural is also an award-winning outfit, that has been featured in numerous trade magazines including Essence Magazine and Hype Hair Magazine. In 2003, they took home 1st and 3rd place in the Philadelphia, PA Locks and Natural Hair Styling Competition. The salon has also participated in The International African Arts Festival Natural Hair Shows and many others, organized hair shows at Wep Ren Put (the African Kemetic – Egyptian New Year Celebration presented by Health Thyself Holistic Center & Queen Afua and, in 2005, co-produced a revolutionary production titled Style Through Movement, which showcased the connection between, music, dance, fashion and art.
At Locks of Nu Natural, Tynes and her staff understand the history of natural black hair and trace hair locking and sculpture as a tradition with roots in ancient Egyptian culture. Locksmyths at the salon use these ancient techniques, developed for our modern world by Tynes’ mentor Ona Matt, to create a hair locking experience that has made Locks of Nu Natural a force to be reckoned with in the natural hair styling world. In order to successfully perpetuate the technique, they tease the hair with the fingers, while wrapping the remaining loose ends around the lock. This method allows both the stylist and client great flexibility when styling the hair.
