Recent reportage project ‘From Curls to Coils’ is a three part series dedicated to telling stories and insightsĀ from different women on the theme of natural hair. This project features illustrations, live sketching from hairdressers around Bristol, interviews with leading hairdressers and hair blogger Beulah Davina. We started conversations on black hair and how it’s seen in the workplace, how it is perceived in the media and on television, and why the natural hair movement is such a big thing. This project is a personal exploration of what hair means to the illustrator as a mixed-race woman, and what hair means to women everywhere.
