Goapele Mohlabane

I have been a big fan of Goapele Mohlabane for years now. When I first started following her, she had the most amazing locs. She would always create these cute styles,  that I would dream of trying on my own. Besides being a singer, she is also a community activist. I’ve had the honor of briefly meeting this very talented lady. It was more of a "Hi" and "Bye" kind of thing at various performances she had done in the Bay Area. But from those few moments, she has impressed me so much with her sincerity and grace.                       

Goapele was born in OaklandCA, and her name means “to go forward in the South African language Sesotho. Goapele now sports a shorter natural style and she's still rocking it!


  1. I am so looking forward to my locks getting longer. Your hairstyles are beautiful. Before locks my hair was long. I did not BC when i got the first set of locks. But when I took them down I had cut the tip and when I decided to get the second set (which is what I have now) I got a professional trim. My hair is in layers so I can't wait until my locks are a good length to try some of these beautiful styles!

  2. I am thinking of getting locs. I have never had natural hair before now, so I don't really know much about styling it. What would I have to do in order to get locs like Goapele's?
