Synopsis

Angela is a braid stylist to the stars. Wayne and Cyndia are the leading junior stylists at the UK's biggest chain of Afro hair salons. George and Apple are a Thai husband and wife team obsessed with Afro hair.

Michael is Birmingham's leading Afro stylist who is out to beat the all-powerful London salons. Afro-Saxons follows all of these stylists as they enter the Black Beauty and Hair awards - the most competitive Afro hair competition in the UK.

'An engaging and entertaining documentary - it's impossible to watch it without a smile on your face' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).

'A MUST-SEE FLICK - if you don't find it compulsive viewing, you're dead from the neck up' (Elsa O' Toole, NEW NATION).

'Big hair and bigger egos make for an entertaining and frequently amusing documentary - even those with no interest in hair will find something to amuse them in this admirably unusual film' (FILM FOUR).
