Afro/Caribbean Hair Stylist

Hiya,

Could you give me some recommendations for a hair stylist that can work with natural afro hair please? I do not want to wear straight weaves or straighten my hair for my wedding and I keep getting these suggestions from stylists which is really irritating. My hair is long enough not to need any additions and thick enough for most styles. I'm hoping someone can recommend me a great hair stylist that works with natural afro hair as I am lost, not much choice for black women when it comes to hair and make up.

 

thank you in advance

    Maybe look for a few nice styles in magazines or online and show them to hairdressers for some inspiration. I'm guessing they're just assuming straight is better if they haven't had many natural brides.

    Where are you based?

  • hi again that's fine if they think that but it's about what I want and know will suit me. I'm based in London x
