Return To Natural:

Over the past decades a groundswell of activity and dialogue around natural hair has emerged.


Join stylists, artists, academics and the public for a dialogue on the complexities of natural verses processed hair. Exploring the cultural significance of natural hair today, the evening salon The Return to the Natural brings together informal dialogues with hands-on hairdressing in MAD’s Artist Studios.
