The sun is shining and heralding the start of summer!


May is going to be a super busy but super exciting month for me….there is a LOT going on for the beautiful British Woman of Colour!

8th May – 2013 Mizani Afro Look Awards Final.


It was a honour to be asked by the L’Oréal Colour Trophy team to cover the live final of this year’s Mizani Afro Look Awards!

I have written about the finalists and the dream team of judges here

I am really looking forward to the day and will be sharing it with you as it unfolds via Twitter and Instagram!

You still have time to tweet me any questions you would like to ask the judges.  Just use the hash tag #bplasktheexperts

I will be spending more time with the Mizani team on the morning of the 9th as I have been invited to have breakfast with the fabulous British beauty and new Mizani Ambassador Shingai Shoniwa!


The attendees will have the chance to relax in Shingai’s luxurious suite at the Mayfair Hotel and ask her all about her hair and beauty secrets plus award winning stylist Charlotte Mensah will be on hand to advise on how to recreate some of Shingai’s infamous hairstyles and reveal the hottest afro trends. It is sure to be an educational and inspirational morning!

Afro Hair & Beauty LIVE returns to the Islington Business Design Centre on 26th & 27th May and I will be popping down to see what will be on offer!

Long may this trend continue!
