Tell us a little about yourself: Aaliyah, but everyone calls me Babes. I’m 25 years old, born in Atlanta, raised in Virginia. I was actually in school to be a nurse when I thought I’d give hair a shot, it was all or nothing for me, so I turned my hustle on and haven’t looked back since! Best decision I ever made in my life.
Best known for: My clean signature “Free parts”.
Favorite hashtags: #goodlocday #loctician #dmvloctician
Who I'm following: I’m following all the fire locticians all over the globe, it’s so dope to see other stylist killing it in this loc game.
Tips for best results: ENGAGEMENT, ask questions, take polls, talk to them they’ll talk back!

How social media has changed my life : Social media changed my life because I was able to reach new heights and gain new exposure quicker and to a broader audience. I now have clients and people following from the 757 to Africa to All over the world.
What I love most about being a loc stylist: What I love most about being a loc stylist is seeing people feel good about themselves. That’s what it’s about for me, no amount of money can replace that.
The first time I was featured on a Good Loc Day: On March 24, 2019, I did some barrel braids on my client with orange locs! They were the first blog to give me any recognition. Forever thankful for them!💜
