This may have been the day I lost the source of all my powers. But it was worth it!
I had around twenty-one inches of hair cut off which was apparently enough to make three wigs.
Using the £1070 I raised Little Princess Trust will have these wigs produced and then delivered to three young sufferers of chemotherapy induced hair loss.
And a special thanks to Uffizi in South West London for kindly cutting my hair.
Angela is a braid stylist to the stars. Wayne and Cyndia are the leading junior stylists at the UK’s biggest chain of Afro hair salons. George and Apple are a Thai couple obsessed with Afro hair. Michael is Birmingham’s leading Afro stylist who is out to beat the all-powerful London salons. Afro-Saxons is a sharp and funny observational documentary that follows all of these stylists as they enter the Black Beauty and Hair awards – the biggest Afro hair competition in the UK.
On October 10 2008, Afro-Saxons premièred at the Ritzy Brixton. This is how it went down. The film is released on October 17 2008 in selected London Cinemas.
I worked as a production assistant in many capacities extensively on this production.
