Charlotte Mensah on Getting Started in the Hair Business
"When I was a kid, I never thought that I was going to be a hairdresser. Shortly after I returned to the UK from Ghana at age 11, my mum passed away. My younger sister was 3 years old at the time, so I used to be the one that would just love doing her hair. And I think because of what happened, I didn't do as well in my exams. So when the careers officer came around at the age of 15, it was just something that I felt like I was so good at."
