The Black Issue – Tribu-te magazine UK

May 21, 2021


The Summer edition of Tribu-te magazine UK is ‘the Black issue’.  A year ago, in the days following the murder of George Floyd in the USA, the world was caught up with a surge of interest in #BlackLivesMatter.

The making of Tribu-te’s Black issue is the result of several top UK hairdressers coming together to collaborate on a project that addresses the issue of being a Black hairdresser and working with Black and Afro-textured hair.

We wanted to show exquisite work on Black hair, allowing its natural texture to show through, and to champion our fabulous hairdressers.

The project to create the collection for Tribu-te; the Black issue came from the generosity of the hairdressers, stylist, photographer and make-up artists, as well as the models, all working pro bono. Costs were met by Avlon Europe – manufacturers of leading products for working with Black and Afro-textured hair for more than 40 years. We are grateful for their vision and generosity.
