Whether you favour natural tresses or flowing locks, Blackhair includes ample product recs and styles to suit every budget. No stone is left unturned with its make up recommendations (and no, it doesn't focus entirely on MAC either) and helpful skincare advice relevant to the issues faced by black women is covered too. The August/September issue also pays homage to Top Model of Colour winner, Nana Afua Antwi, who graces the cover.

The only magazines I tend to buy these days are New! (for my sleb goss fix) and Glamour, but seeing one lipstick shade (two if I'm lucky) being recommended for my skin tone each issue, isn't really cutting it - also, the "relationship advice" falls on deaf ears, so a fair few pages gets skipped altogether.
I'm considering subscribing to Blackhair as I know my Mum would appreciate it too. She was engrossed in the June/July issue (which I was quoted in - yeah, I kept that quiet ..hehe) and asked me to buy the next issue.
As a consumer, what made me smile as I flicked through it, was that on the beauty pages MAC So Precious eye shadows had been recommended in a feature. AMEN! A magazine featuring limited edition products which are actually available to purchase! I hate seeing items from cosmetic collections which are three months old (and long sold out) being recommended to readers as the 'must have' shade. Lazy journalism at its best. It's not that difficult to research release dates so that they correspond with when issues hit the shelves.
The latest Blackhair issue is out now and available at WHSmith and all good newsagents.
