Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, womanhood, friendship, and most importantly, hair.
Set within a South London hair-salon called BE U Tiful, The Head Wrap Diaries gives you front row seats to watch, interact with and be immersed in a journey from childhood to the present day, told through a unique blend of house, waacking and vogue fused with African and contemporary dance, accompanied by a specially commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel.
