Township styling

In the Honeydew district of Johannesburg, Zimbabwean Sharon has set up her salon in a shipping container. Her client, Zanele, runs a business in the container next door. "The South Africans complain we work for less salaries as Zimbabweans and [that] we take their jobs."

The Salon is a series of conversations about identity and appearance with women around the world, in the intimate space of the hairdresser's chair.
