Passionate About Afro/curly Hair
Hi, I'm Gege
Natural Hair Expert with
14+ Years of Professional Experience.
I have always loved everything about hair, especially natural hair care. I have been a mobile hairdresser, rented a chair in a shop, started and managed three shops, had my own hair salon and worked from my home studio.
My passion for hair is obvious and I thoroughly enjoy working with all aspects of hair care, design and styling. I have worked with different hair types across many different ethnicities – from naturally straight, to wavy, to curly and coily hair. I chose to specialise in curly and afro hair conditions.
I love working with hair extensions but I am fascinated by what the hair underneath hair extensions and protective hairstyles are made of, how it thrives and I work hard to keep that hair safe, healthy and protected.

I understand that afro hair is one of a kind, one that requires a lot of care and love. There is so much conflicting advice out there, and with such a diverse variety of afro-curly hair, I always get asked a lot of questions. Having worked with different types of afro-curly hair, I have several great tips (learnable only from experience) that anyone can tailor to their hair care routines. As an industry leader, I have established products, styling services and expertise to clients internationally. My standard of care is second to none. Specialising in afro and curly hair types requires 3+ more years, as well as the essential Hairdressing qualifications gained in the industry for European hair to qualify!
