You may have heard me say time & again about the power of social media & it was exactly that that connected me to the team behind SABC 1’s Live It, just a few days ago.
I’ll come clean and say I hadn’t heard of the show before but hey any chance to talk hair and I’m in! Live It is aimed at the youth (18-24) both guys & girls & has a focus on health & lifestyle. The show is already in its 4th season & we were shooting episode 2 of season 4. I won’t give too much away except to say that what I enjoyed is that we talked a variety of styles (natural, weaves, relaxed & braids) – the focus was healthy hair no matter how you wear it.
The set was the Modjo Hair Salon, in Diepkloof Square, Soweto where the scene was set a few friends sit around talking hair & get tips from myself and a stylist. I was nervous & rambled a bit, nothing good editing can’t fix I hope 🙂
Here are a few quick pics from behind the scenes…

By the end of the shoot we were laughing & trying to keep straight faces for the camera. This was a heap of fun, thanks for having me!
PS This episode will air on SABC 1s Live It on Thursday the 11th July 2013 at 13:30. I’m going to be away but the hubby has strict instructions to PVR… 🙂
Be kind to your hair!
