Men’s protective styles have long been a thing, even when met with discrimination as a result. From locs to twists to cornrows and more, men enjoy embracing their hair texture. But the freedom to wear men’s protective styles has not always been so “free”.
Before a Texas wrestling match in 2018, a Black teen was forced to cut off his locs. And in 2020, another Black teen was told he couldn’t wear his locs to graduation. Why? Because his hair “would be out of dress code”.
Don’t trip, just breathe. Thanks to the CROWN Act, we’re moving closer to ensure Black hair can no longer be discriminated against. Although the CROWN Act has only passed in seven states thus fair, we WILL prevail.
Vip House of Hair is doing its part to ensure our Black men have the goods they need for proper hair care. In fact, we sell human bulk hair for locs. Premade human hair locs in all colors. And synthetic locs for anyone or any culture who wants to achieve men’s protective styles look. We’re also fully stocked on loc gels and accessories.
