Top Natural Hairstylists in South London, UK
Written and kindly-cherry picked by Sylvia Njoki
Afro and curly hair types are so versatile but looking for an Afro and curly hairdresser is not always easy to find. So it’s only right that we, at Napps, give you the best natural hair stylists who know how to style your hair.
London is an extravaganza of diversity with people from all different cultures who deserve representation and access to their beauty needs. With that said, not everyone has it easy, particularly Afro and curly-haired people who find accessing beauty services can often be inconvenient and unnecessarily stressful.
Too often, people with textured hair experience challenges trying to find a hairdresser, let alone book a hair appointment that is convenient for them.
If you ask me, I’ve suffered through it all! The 2-week waiting period, the three bus commute, the extra hidden charges, and the worst one— waiting for the hairdresser to finish their last client, even though I got there on time!
With everything else going on like school, work, friends, kids and just having a social life, the last thing you need is the hassle of where to get your hair done. If you know and still feel the struggle then Napps is definitely what you are looking for.
Not to worry, Napps is here!
