Blackhair Magazine’s Summer 2012 Issue


This afternoon we unveiled the cover of our June/July summer issue and the response was phenomenal. The cover was conceptualised by Dionne Smith founder of BDM, shot by photographer Agata Preyes and features Britain’s Next Top Model finalist Ufuoma Itoje, dressed in a daisy yellow trouser suit perfectly placed in front of some matching yellow flowers. We instantly fell in love with the image once we saw it, so we’re delighted by the positive response so far. It’s quite a light-hearted issue this month, with the main focus on gearing up for summer (when it decides to arrive). Journalist Ese Odetah delves into a subject that I’ve always been curious about and that’s black women who use tanning beds (yes, we use them too apparently). Elsewhere we interview Alexandra Burke about her hair and beauty regime, and like her or loathe her, you know Ms Burke’s glam is always on point. We also welcome the return of the badass Santigold, and chat it up with the outspoken Tami Roman from Basketball Wives who ‘keeps it one hundred’ in her inimitable style. And of course in addition to these features we have hair inspiration. Lot’s of it. So do yourself (and us) a favour and pick up a copy on May 8th from WH Smith and all good newsagents.
