Beauty with Kelly

   kk1

Locs of Royalty is a fresh new hair salon operated by a gorgeous mother of two, Kelly King. Kelly is a licensed loctition out of Brooklyn with roots stretching back from St. Anns, Jamaica. Recently I went to get my locs washed and twisted by her and experienced the most liberating moment of my life. Kelly is so sensitive on people’s hair I almost fell asleep. She scrubbed my scalp, moisturized my hair and locked me up in about an hour.

Do yourself a favor, especially, if you’re a locked brother or sister and get your locs treated by Kelly King. She even installs faux dredlocs on those not looking for the permanent style but want to try the look temporarily.
Kelly King is skilled in all areas of locology, and wants you to sit in her chair!

Check her out on facebook.com/kdaloctition to make an appointment. Also visit her shop at 295 Livingston Ave.

See ya in two weeks!
