Natalie | My Name is…

Natalie has always struggled to get a decent haircut in high-street hairdressers. The reason? She has afro-textured hair. New standards in hairdressing were announced in 2021 which mean trainee hairdressers will now learn how to cut and style afro-textured hair. Will these changes bring the choice that so many black women like Natalie have been asking for? And if so, could this be at the expense of black-owned hairdressers?
