Call in to speak with the host
This evening we have a Spcial guest speaker with us Thando Kafela The Legend, A Master locktician and natural hairstylist. Thando Kafele is one of the most decorated forces in the natural hair industry, internationally acclaimed as a master stylist and instructor. Serving as the official spokesperson for Jane Carter Solutions (www.janecartersolution.com), he has consistently raised the professional standard of the genre for almost two decades.
? Brooklyn’s own Thando Kafele was the winner of the Taliah Waajid Natural Hair Show for twelve years straight, and in 2011 became the first natural hair stylist to win a “Hair Oscar”. His methods display an array of lock-twisting techniques in several trade shows like the Bronner Bros Show, and the Premier. Essence and Ebony magazine sought the best in the business, featuring Mr. Kafele as a credible source of knowledge and experience. His many styles can be seen in popular books including Authentic Hair by Ademola Mandella and Embracing Your Roots by Nahbila Sonia Tutuwan Thames.
His loyal regulars adore him and his celebrity clientele respects him. Heavyweight Boxing Champion Lennox Lewis and L.A. Dodger’s Manny Ramirez have both been a part of his story, although he is best found among local networks sustaining the culture. Kafele has pioneered the “comb technique”, applying his brilliance as owner of TK Salon and Senior Stylist of New York City’s Locks N Chops.
?Thando Kafele’s legacy is one of innovation and humility, excited to mentor those willing to learn. Team BLACK is his vision turned reality, a collective of natural hair care dynamos from different backgrounds growing together to master their own skill set. He has been affectionately yet accurately dubbed, “The Legend”, solidifying himself as a leader of an industry he helped to build.
