The Krown And Glory Team

Ignite the spark from within...

Behind the Krown

Krown and Glory was originated in 2009, by professional hair stylist Kristen "Kris J" Jacobs. Kris J began doing hair at the tender age of 16 and over the years, her passion for hair styling intensified and her clientele grew. In 2009, Kris's primary services were weaves, cornrows and natural hair up do's.  After making the personal decision to lock her hair in 2010, a whole new vision was revealed and Sisterlocks TM became the new joy in her life. In her pursuit of sharing that joy with the world, Kris completed the Sisterlock Training Course in April of 2012 and was Certified as a Sisterlocks TM Consultant in Baltimore, MD; shifting the services of the hair salon exclusively to Sisterlocks TM . Now over a decade in business, Krown and Glory has aided in the certification of at least 3 Sisterlock consultants while maintaining a client base of over 400 loyal customers and growing.

"Sisterlocks TM is a trademarked company founded in 1993 by Dr. JoAnne Cornwell. The Home Office is in San Diego, California, and there are trained practitioners and Certified Training Associates in over 30 U.S states. The company has developed an innovative approach to marketing its natural hair care system to African American women. The company motto says it all: “Sisterlocks TM is not about a hairstyle, it’s about a lifestyle.” Sisterlocks TM invites women who are interested in self-empowerment and cultural self expression, to embrace a natural hair care system that is self-affirming and truly gorgeous." read more at

Kris J.

Kris J is not only mesmerizing but she is motivating. Whether she is traveling the world as a "Curve Conscious" Caribbean Carnival Masquerader or she is servicing clients as the owner of Krown and Glory; this woman is sure to change the atmosphere of anywhere she goes. She brings a genuine love for humanity, a royal presence, a caring spirit and glittering smile that's sure to light up any room. While she's no stranger to hard work, either in a corporate setting or spiritual realm, perhaps her greatest superpower is that she does all these things while being a full tome mother of three. There is no denying, with Kris's energetic personality and adventurous nature she is truly something magical.




Shadonna is the glue behind the jewels on the Krown and Glory's crown. Shadonna has been the assistant extraordinaire for the salon since 2019. The right hand to Kris, she is always ready to jump in with managing schedules, coordinating lavish events and maintaining an abundant clientele all while having the most pleasant demeanor one could ever encounter. Clients absolutely adore her and so do we at The Krown! Shadonna is a proud wife and mother of two, who's military background lends itself to the advancement in her professional life. She is able to juggle all of her assistant magic at Krown and Glory, while maintaining a full time job in corporate America and a vigorous workout schedule. Yet she still manages to travel, compete in several triathalon races around the United States. No wonder we love this lady, she is our real life superhero!

  • Can I add extensions to my hair?
    Krown and Glory currently does NOT offer extensions as a service.
  • What are Microlocks?
    Microlocks are typically similar in size to Sisterlocks™️. The term microlock became popular by locticians who would do tiny locks that resemble Sisterlocks™️, however they are not certified in the study of the Sisterlocks™️ techniques and have not completed the Sisterlocks™️ Course. Legally, those locticians cannot call those locks Sisterlocks™️ due to copyright infringement laws and trademark protections in place.
  • How long does my hair need to be to start my locs?
    At Krown and Gory, we require atleast 3 inches of unprocessed hair to establish any locs in your hair. We recommend booking a consultation to determine if our services are a good fit for your hair goals.
  • Which products can I use on my Sisterlocks?
    As part of your installation appointment, we will provide you with an Sisterlock™️installation starter kit. Your starter kit will includes Sisterlock™️ Starter Shampoo. Once your locks are installed the ONLY product that you should use on your locks in the Sisterlock™️ Starter Shampoo. This shampoo is designed to help with the maturing/locking process. It is imperative that you refrain from using any other hair products unless prescribed by a physician. We want to avoid any unforeseen issues with your locking process.
  • Why do I have to select High Density/Long Hair Retight?
    Everyone's hair is unique and some of us are blessed in the hair department! If your stylist advised you to choose our High Density/Long Hair Retight option and your hair is not long yet, it is because your particular blessing of hair requires a bigger time slot. The standard time for High Density/Long Hair Retight is 3 Hours, which means that you need a little extra time to bring all of your glory together.
  • What are Sisterlocks?
    Sisterlocks™️ is a patented micro interlocking system for afro-textured hair.
  • Can I start my locs with permed or relaxed hair?
    You CAN start locs with permed or relaxed hair, however we do not recommend it due to aesthetic reasons. Typically relaxed hair needs to be rodded or styled more frequently after establishment to give the appearance of healthy hair. The abundance of styling required on transitioning hair from relaxed to natural can be tiresome and typically does not hold a style and cannot be included in the newly established Sisterlocks™️ (that hair is left loose and will not lock). Making the decision to lock your hair should be a statement of freedom and at Krown and Glory, that is always our goal!
  • Should I color my hair before or after I get Sisterlocks?
    If you are interested in adding color to your Sisterlocks™️, we highly suggest that you color your hair before your Sisterlocks™️ Installation appointment because it will not be possible to color your hair immediately afterwards. After your Sisterlocks™️ Installation appointment, your hair will need a moment to mature before the vigorous coloring process can happen again.
  • How can I prepare for my consultation?
    You do not need to do much to prepare for your consultation! Your hair should be in its most natural state as possible - free of braids, gels or oils. This is a time for us to fully assess your entire beautiful hair. So don't be shy, let that nappy show! Also, bring all of your questions and/or hair crush pictures and we will do our best to answer/address all of your concerns.
  • Why do I need to book a consultation?
    We require all new clients to book a consultation prior to booking services. Our consultation process allows us to gather information about you and your hair needs. A consultation is an informative session in which we will assess your hair to determine whether it is ready for Sisterlocks™️. In addition to our assessment, we also explain the history of our interlocking hair system, the time requirements for establishment as well as total cost of services. While we discuss the history of Sisterlocks™️, we will also create a few sample locks (approximately 6-12 in your hair to determine sizing and overall aesthetic desired.
  • How can I prepare for my appointment?
    All clients should arrive with their hair clean and free from and products. hair should be washed atleast 24 to 48 hours prior to all confirmed appointments.
  • How early should I arrive for my appointment?
    Krown And Glory allows clients a 10 Minute Grace Period before a $25 Late Fee applies. After 15 Minutesm the client's appointment will be cancelled and the applicable Cancellation Fee will be charged electronically to the card we have on file.
  • Why was my appointment request declined?
    We are sorry that your appointment request was declined! The most common reason for declined appointment is due to selecting incorrect services for your hair. Krown and Glory has a strict time policy for all services. If you are unsure of which service to book, please reach out to us at 443-388-2873 and we will assist you. Please check your email for decline explanation and reason for declined appointment, as your text confirmation will not explain reason.

You will be given the option to choose an alternate date/time or give us a call at 443-383-2873 for assistance.

  • What if I need to cancel my appointment?
    Krown And Glory requires 24 hours advanced notic for all cancelled appointments. Request for rescheduling a confirmed appointment has the same 24 hour timeframe to make changes. Failure to notify without proper notice will result in the client being marked as a no-call/ no-show. The client will be charged for the full amount of the service booked to the card on file. Krown And Glory and each of its staff members reserves the right to refuse service for any bad vibes.
