New Year, New Locitude!!!

Hello You,

We took our time to wish you a Happy New Year 2017!!!.

The Interweb has certainly become an interesting place this past year. It has helped expand our audience in more ways than we imagined. 2016 was also the year of the "Buhari times" otherwise known as when the inevitable Nigerian Recession finally hit the apparent middle class that had grown in previous years. For us however, it was a time to learn, grow and define who we are as Locitude; and 2017 is the year when we take it to the next level. We thank you in advance for staying with us and supporting us through our journey 'cos it's yours too.

Who we are?

We started out as a "just-for-fun" Blog in 2014 but over the years we have evolved to become a community for people with locs, a dynamic force which depends on loc enthusiasts. We are now more than a blog or hair studio, we are an eco-system, a melting point of diverse individuals; entrepreneurs, workers, students, senior citizens and children; our exchange creates growth, economic opportunities and collaboration.

What we do?

We love everything locs, and help create a positive and thriving community for people with this very special thing in common... Our services are born out of the needs of loc heads

- Salon services at the Locitude Studio, currently located at Suite 44, Dolphin Plaza, Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi.
- Content production that brings the versatility of locs to your daily life, via social media, blog and our magazine.
- Event Organisation; the official host of Loc Appreciation Day, Lagos and Loc Workshop & Stylist competition.
- We build connections and collaborations within our community, you never know who you'll meet or what you'll learn on our platform.
- We try as we can to de-stigmatize locs.
- We are always happy to learn new things.

Why 2017 will be the best year yet.

Grateful for the holidays and the opportunity of kicking off our shoes and relaxing, we have planned a lot for this new year and we are even more excited for all the possibilities and opportunities that we are yet to realize. 

Starting with the obvious..

1. Loc Appreciation Day, 2017 will be an even bigger and wider world event this year. Save the date  - 24th of June, 2017.
2. Loc Workshop and Stylist Competition is coming back in the first quarter of this year.
3. Locitude Magazine is also coming back again and here to stay.
4. I can hear The Locitude Web Series hovering loudly somewhere in the corner.
5. In addition to our signature oils more signature products are in the pipeline
6. Watch out for UYAI - you'll know when you see it.
7. and lastly an even better us.

The Locitude Studio is also getting a face lift over the holidays  *dancing like Sola Sobowale in the Wedding party*... Writing all about it in our next post so please stay tuned.

Happy New Year again and here is to a wonderful year ahead. :)
