'Hair' is Back at The BBC

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there, hair, shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy

Hair, flow it, show it

Long as God can grow, my hair

We've all heard the lyrics and know what the show is about so if you are an avid watcher of BBC Three's Hair, have you ever thought of starring in the show?

The BBC’s Hair is back!
Series 1 was won by Marvin Francis, aged 25, who was a self-taught home hair stylist from London specialising in working with afro hair, braiding and wig making.
Since the competition ended our finalists have remained working in hair and Marvin has gone on to work on fashion shoots for major magazines like Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. See one of his awesome creations with natural afro hair being judged in the series, seen above!

In an interview with Meade Magazine, winner Marvin gave away his top three tips for Afro Caribbean hair:

1.     For relaxed hair – treatments – to maintain the strength;
2.     For Natural Hair – Keep hair moist using natural hair oils and pomades;

3.     For Weaves – Good quality hair and co-washing (washing hair with conditioning before during and after).

We absolutely adored Ebuni Ajiduah last year, who specialised in experimental afro hairstyles and classic up-do’s. Her up-do for natural afro hair was especially impressive and you can still find the tutorial online! 

Are you passionate about Hair? Do you know a bun from a beehive or the difference between a fishtail and a French plait?

Are you bursting with innovative hair styling ideas - from vintage looks to cutting edge fashion?

If you’re an amateur Hairstylist and think you could cut it in the competition, we want to hear from you.

Maybe you’ve always thought your home hair creations were ready for the catwalk - or you’ve been dishing out freebie haircuts to friends and family for years.
