our story

Redefining the Loc Experience

In 2016 Erica Williams-Parks was just a loctician at a local New Orleans salon. She wanted more. Under the advisement of her girlfriend at the time, she llc’d her business Headliners NOLA thinking of the future. She started to think of it as a business not just a side hustle. 

Since the inception of Headliners NOLA, it’s been dedicated to enhancing the clients’ expectations and experience when sitting in our chairs. Specializing in locs, Headliners was born out of passion. The passion of being a loctician, doing it the right way. 

Headliners NOLA offers its clients the possibility to have an experience that is not just getting your hair done, it is a place where you’re comfortable to be yourself fully.

In December 2018 Erica courageously left that salon and ventured on her own at Sola Salon Suites. Yes, she was scared and nervous about that move. 

But her popularity as NOLALocstar and her business grew. Erica was totally booked and busy. She was turning away clients. Then, Erica hired a shampoo assistant to add waiting list on Fridays and Saturdays.

Meanwhile, our daughter, Victoria Williams graduated from Aveda Institute

In March of 2020 COVID shut us down for about four months. Yes, the uncertainty loomed large, but Erica used the time at home to think about the future of Headliners NOLA. One thing was for sure. She knew she needed to add a stylist. 

Our daughter, Victoria Williams started as a shampoo technician while she studied for the cosmetology board.

Victoria passed her cosmetology board and started as a stylist at Headliners NOLA. 

Headliners NOLA is open seven (7) days a week.

Victoria traveled to Orlando and took her Sisterlocks training class. She’s now a Sisterlocks trainee. 

Headliners NOLA has a new logo. We just launched our new website. Just wait! There’s so much more to come.
