How Our Salon Got Its Name!

We are often asked how to pronounce our salon name!  Is it Lock One Go or Lock On Ego or something entirely different?!  While we kind of love the air of mystery surrounding our unusual name, we are happy to share our secret which goes waaaay back to when the thought of opening a salon was just a twinkle in the eye!

Our name is the combination of the founders' surnames - Cooke and Long.  Sure, we could have called our hairdressing salon Cooke & Long or Long & Cooke, but where's the fun in that?  Instead, we started looking into acronyms and while Gecko Loon certainly sticks in the mind, we decided upon Lockonego (pronounced Lock On Ego).  So there we have it.  Mystery solved!
