Charlotte Mensah Becomes the First Black Woman To Be Inducted Into The British Hairdressing Awards Hall Of Fame

A hairdresser and industry insider favourite for over 30 years, being inducted into the British Hairdressing Awards Hall Of Fame comes as a well-deserved honour for celebrity afro and textured hairstylist Mensah, who is also the three-times winner of Best Afro Hairdresser of the Year from 2013, 2014, and 2017 from the Hairdresser’s Journal annual event.

“To be the first black woman to win this award is such a wonderful feeling – and also very humbling”, says Mensah, fresh off the stage from collecting her version of the hairdressing Oscars last night. “I hope that I can act as an inspiration to the younger generation who might want to get into hairdressing – to show that anything is possible if you stay focused, work hard and follow your gut. Being able to fly the flag for afro and natural hair textures in the UK is such a huge privilege – it’s greatly rewarding to be recognised and celebrated by my peers.”
