I don't know if you have come across this little story that has been going around the internet lately. It started on Tumblr and then moved over to Twitter and claimed that Google Image Search is racist. The reason for this is that if you do an image search for "unprofessional hairstyles" it only returns images of black women but if you look for "professional hairstyles" it will return only images of white women.
A few weeks ago we wrote about the importance for afro-caribbean hairdressers to have a strong online presence as we firmly believe that the revolution will be digitised. Here are 10 smaller braiders, locticians or natural hair stylists that are doing things right by feeding instagram profiles, updating websites or Facebook pages. Because it's not all about the big boys and big salons. Good news: Some of them have also already registered to be on Afrocks platform and will be bookable when we go live.
