Anthony Oakes

Salon Assistant, Loc Lov Publication Editor

Anthony got his first taste of the hair and beauty industry while helping out in his aunt's salon as a child. He developed a strong interest in beauty and hair, from the creative writing perspective. After graduating from UNC Charlotte with a degree in English, he moved to New York City, where he wrote for several publications, including Black Hairstyles and Trends magazine, and was a writer for Fox reality show Ambush Makeover. At Loc Lov, Anthony's clients always appreciate his conversation and the high quality customer experience he provides. He enjoys making clients feel comfortable and learning about their lives. "Loc Lov clients are a lot of interesting professionals who have a strong sense of who they are - they recognize quality."
