Themed Candiland and inspired by the expressive and bold hair trends from the local and global festivals such as Coachella, Rocking the Daisies, Burning Man and AfroPunk, this year’s Trend Report comes just in time to brighten up the mood and put spunk in this year’s winter season.
“We’re quite thrilled about the prospect to present this year’s hair trends, which are quite funky, playful, bold and really girly at the same time. We worked with quite a reputable and credible list of talented people in the hair and beauty industry to compile this report, which we know will give us some sure hits our clients would love this season,” says Candice Thurston, Founder and Chief Executive of Candi & Co.
“Our company is about de-racialising, destigmatising and revolutionising the hair and beauty notions. We want to give our cis -and gender non-confirming clients the strength and confidence they need to feel beautiful and confident. A great hairstyle can make you feel 10 times more beautiful,” she adds.
The leading female hip hop artist Nadia Nakai features as guest editor for Candiland. As part of the editorial team, she’s selected a stunning collection of custom-made wigs that features beaded braids and exquisite colourful wigs, truly representative of her vibrant personality as a performer.
The beautiful and trendsetting influencers who also feature in the Trend Report include Lulama Wolf, Tumi Mohale, Jena Dover, Danni Bowler, Crystal Kasper, Kgosi “Krayzik” Modisane and Stella Nhantumbo.
