Join me at Shades of Beauty Live 2018

Events, SceneTV | Monday July 16th 2018

Some exciting news…SceneTV will be hosting a panel about the representation of women of colour at the upcoming beauty and hair expo Shades of Beauty Live, on Friday 24th August at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls.

Founded by sisters Grace and Christina Adesina, the event will feature some of your favourite brands, influencers and business women in the hair and beauty industry to celebrate the diversity of beauty and challenge narrow industry standards. The event will be complete with panel discussions designed to inform, empower and entertain – including our very own.

I will lead a discussion on Black Beauty in the Media: Whether it’s the lack of diversity on the cover of a magazine, or as leading ladies in television, film and entertainment in general, the unfair representation of women of colour is often the cause of much hurt and frustration. During this panel session, we will hear from and celebrate talented women who have challenged this issue head on. We’ll discuss their journeys as well as how we can all do our part to shine a light on each other. Click here for more info and to grab your tickets.
