Beauty Rituals


How Black hair salons keep community alive

Since London's first Black hair salon opened in 1955, stylists have played a central role in creating safe spaces where punters can gossip, relax and get a new 'do. We visit three salons that are keeping that spirit alive, moving with the times to compete with Insta stylists while forging lifelong relationships.
