The Hair We Wear



Tolu Agoro is building a reputation for out of the box thinking when it comes to fashioning afro hair. Recently styling a Gal Dem x Glossier campaign, her work is definitely not going unnoticed. Her avant-garde afro towers and eclectic collaborative pieces have been enough to catch the eye of Chimamanda Adichie. And Tolu is now her go to hair stylist when in the UK, responsible for the stunning coiffure Chimamanda adorned on stage this week at Michelle Obama's Becoming event. It’s hard not to be drawn in by Tolu’s creative freedom and in our first documentary we get to see her at work, while hearing about her hair journey pertaining to business, society and self.
