HOW IT ALL STARTED

In 2015, I began the long bumpy road to writing my dissertation on hair, heritage and identity for my Masters degree in Cultural Heritage at University College London. Since then, I have been continuing my research and have been funded by the Mayor of London and London Borough of Culture to continue the project.
