The hair brand has recently changed its name to Stylin’ which stands for owning individuality, styling your story and standing out in a way that is encouraged and celebrated.
As creative conquerers we had to choose a location in and around Johannesburg CBD to renovate the space with our creativity and I chose to collaborate with Indalo Nubian Naturals Hair Salon because it is a proudly South African salon, it is natural hair salon (it’s still rare to find those in the city), I used to do my hair there, still do and I usually have a great experience. I’ve always wanted to create hair art installation/artwork in a salon so when the opportunity presented itself I was so excited!
I created illustrated canvas prints with creative hairstyles using hair extensions, also created denim,prints pillow cases with illustrations, there’s also a braid art wall with different, colourful hair extensions to inspire people to be bold this summer following my theme ‘Stylin’ your own story with colour’.
I worked with different creatives as I believe working together is better than doing work by yourself and I also wanted people to know these amazing creatives. Paballo did illustrations for the canvases, pillow cases and printed bandana’s.
Senzo did a potrait mural in Maboneng inspired by my collaboration with Indalo.
Happy sewed the denim,print pillow cases and aprons.
Lastly Simon did the wired beads for the headpiece and I added the hair extension ‘leaves’ inspired by Indalo meaning creations or anything natural and ofcourse styling your own story with colour.
This collaboration combines my love for fashion, hair and colour!
Creative Conquerers creatives did other installations as landmarks for the Stylin’ City Art tour which is available for 3 months (till end of November). People will have the opportunity to hop onto a bus and take the tour while learning about the inspiration behind each piece, book here
