Ava DuVernay Explains Why She Has Locs
Ava DuVernay explains why she proudly wears her signature locs and exactly what inspired the style for her. The director, screenwriter and film marketer says,
I always loved locs. Since I was a little girl when I would see a lady in my neighborhood with them. I thought they were magic. No one in my family wore their hair in this style. I grew up going to the beauty salon with my Mom or getting my hair pressed in the kitchen by my Gramma. I’ve had every style. Short bobs. Long weaves. Braids of all kinds. But when I saw this picture in @hollywoodreporter this morning, I smiled at the crown that now adorns my head. And hope some little girl somewhere comes across this image and sees magic too. #onward
