Doing the 'African Do' in China

Posted: May 16, 2012


Immigrants from Congo, Paul Luyeye and Martha Makuena recently opened up China's first authentic African hair salon in Beijing, reports the China Daily. Part of a growing population of African migrants, the pair arrived ten years ago and say they remain happy with their decision to settle in China, despite the challenges. One such, says Martha, is the lack of available hair salons capable of servicing clients of African descent. "When we go to a local salon, they can't do our hair," she says. With degrees in fashion and hair styling, she decided the only way to tackle the issue was to start her own business. See the video here.
