Afro Collection

What’s the most iconic hair look of the 1970’s (that doesn’t involve Farrah Fawcett)?

When we think of the afro we’re immediately taken back to that groovy era, so it makes sense that the Afro Hairdresser of the Year winner at this year’s British Hair Awards, Charlotte Mensah, would take inspiration from that time in constructing her winning collection. However, this collection is anything but cliché, with hair pieces, extensions and natural hair all used in the creation of stunning shapes, contrasting textures and an alluring take on retro femininity.

“For my collection I took inspiration from the 70s and pushed the boundaries further,” said Mensah. “I wanted to create a powerful feminine vibe and showcase different textures and finishes to highlight the incredible versatility and beauty of Afro hair.”
