Lets Talk 💬: Our next #BlackHairChat with Celai West

Next month on #BlackHairChat, we're talking to actress and runway model Celai West about afro hair in the acting and modeling industry.

Early in 2019, several black actresses spoke up about the lack of representation on Hollywood sets. From having to come to set with their hair already done, to bringing in their own make-up, a host of actresses exposed the lack of thought and care for the needs of black women in these industries.

So, for, our next #BlackHairChat we'll be speaking to Celai West, who is the youngest runway model in the States (making her debut at the age of 8!) about her experience of embracing her natural hair in these spaces.

Don't miss out! We'll be speaking to Celai on the 24th July at 6pm BST on Twitter. Here's a link to our calendar invite: https://evt.mx/1NTdNJvm

Mane Hook-Up + Itoju are joining forces 💛

We want to create a platform that really serves black hair stylists, salons and the people who need them.

And, we've found a way to do that in collaboration with a company whose ideas and values are very much aligned with our own.

So, as of today, Itoju is part of the Mane Hook-Up family.

What does that mean? Our name/brand stays the same and Founders @lifeofaworkinggirl and @zoerck will be working together to create a platform that serves your needs.

As they say:

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together".
