Ghanaian hairdresser Roland Kumi has established himself in the hairdressing industry, making it big and winning customers from female hairdressers with technological innovation.
Roland was interviewed on Citi Tv by Dziffa Akua Ametam while he made faux locs for a lady live on TV.
He calls hair making his talent and reveals he has been in the business for 10 years and still counting.
Roland says he sometimes dreams of various styles and wakes up to try them on his clients and realize they are absolutely lovely.
According to Roland, women prefer to be his clients because he makes sure they do not spend too much time which is typical of women's hairdressing salons.
He affirmed that women hairdressers spend too much time making braids and dressing hair because they engage in gossips and lengthy conversations.
To cut down on the amount of time spent, Roland has also been very innovative by allowing the women to book appointments online.
In doing so, the women decide if to come to the salon or have Roland come over to braid for them. They also have the liberty to choose their most convenient times for the service.
When it all started, the talented male hairdresser says, the women did not feel safe about him coming into their houses and rather vouched to have the hair done by him in nearby salons.
As time went on, the customers started to trust him more and more and now allow him into their homes.
As Roland engaged in the interview on live TV, he simultaneously braided the hair of a beautiful lady, demonstrating his great skills.
His talents are displayed as seen in the video below:
Meanwhile, a barber named Yesu Adom has come out to assert that the human hair that is collected at the barbershop is sometimes used for strange things.
According to him, he gets demands from people, day-in-day-out to asking to buy discarded hair. He revealed that many of the customers that come asking for hair are foreigners.
