You know there are some really really dope artists on Instagram and other social media platforms who I feel are SO dope, but sometimes are just off in the Cut chillin’.
This week I would like to highlight Carl Campbell of Carl Campbell Salon.
Carl is a London based stylist. He is very passionate about hairstyling and is not playing when it comes to providing dedicated service to his patrons. Carl Campbell salon offers a variety of services such as coloring, cutting, and extensions. One of Carl’s specialties is working with the natural hair to create a style that stands out verses disappearing in a sea of lace fronts and wigs.
One of the things that I notice in the UK is that a lot of my chocolate ladies are wearing lace fronts and wigs. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing; however, when every chocolate sista you see has one its almost surprising to see a sista not wearing one. Carl and his salon stood out to me because it was one of the only places I saw still servicing the ladies preferring to wear their own hair. Also besides just doing all natural styles you can also receive a relaxer service which is a must for all my coily girls still wanting to rock a dope pixie cut. I really admire this brother right here, because you have to stand for something or you fall for anything.
Carl is definitely making a difference in his hair community by keeping the art of real hair styling alive as we move forward into the future. Carl has been doing hair for over 10 years and has a really dope welcoming and positive attitude. I had the pleasure of meeting him this week as I visited his salon which was busy and buzzing on a Thursday. Every stylist’s chair was filled and it was definitely people in the waiting area and under the hair dryers all being serviced or waiting to get in the chair.
If your in the London area and are looking for a nice salon to go to with camaraderie and stylists who have some skills for working with your natural or relaxed tresses; then you can most certainly try Carl Campbell salon.
Carl Campbell Salon is located in Brixton area of London UK and you can see more of his work on IG @carlcampbellsalon
