On the topic of power, forget power dressing it’s all about power hairdressing as we explore the significance and substantial influence of how we choose to sport our crowning glory.

September 24th this year is Afropunk London, aptly dubbed ‘Power to the Party’ it will explore the black punk; from voguing to disco, and we’ve got the inside scoop on what to expect at this festival of free expression.
