// Nandi Zulu @ Hair of Heritage Hair of Heritage started in 2011 as a blog by Nandi Zulu, who is located in Malmö, to create a space where the Scandinavian natural hair community is in focus. The blog covers everything from children's hair care, to events and product reviews. Nandi also does workshops that include hair consultations and lectures.
Nandi will speak about how our hair is a part of our identity and why it is important to teach our children to love their hair.
// Lowé Lath @ Saloon Etoile / United By Hair For Lowé hairdressing is not just a regular job, it's more of a life style. The hairdresser, originally from Aalborg, works in her newly opened hair salon Saloon Etoile on Sølvgade in Copenhagen. Here everyone is welcome and she offers hair cuts for all ages.
As a professional with many years of experience, Lowé believes that beauty varies from person to person. It is important for her that individuality is celebrated and to put emphasize on natural beauty.
Lowé will talk about the concept Dan-Afro Tech, which they use at Saloon Etoile.
// Carriene Rendbo @ I Love Natural Hair Carriene hails from London and because she felt a lack of products targeted at naturally curly hair in Denmark she created the web shop I Love Natural Hair. Here you can buy fantastic hair products with natural ingredients and book hair consultations.
To Carriene it is a 'movement'. She wants to encourage and inspire people with curly hair, in whichever form it comes, to appreciate their hair. Whether you have tight afro curls to kinky, wavy or loose curls, she wants you to heart your hair.
Carriene will speak about the importance of good hair regimens.
We look forward to sharing experiences and reflections with everyone. ^^
