Charlotte Mensah has been an industry insider for over 30 years and is famed for her flair for embracing natural hair textures, is an award winning hairstylist and is the owner of The Hair Lounge on London’s Portobello Road.


Charlotte Mensah is at the forefront of creative Afro Styling in the UK and has received numerous accolades for her contribution to  the world of hair and business. Most recently, Charlotte was inducted into the British Hairdressing Awards Hall Of Fame after having winning Best Afro Hairdresser of the Year three times. As a leader in the natural haircare movement, Charlotte’s salon has become a destination for people with natural afro, mixed and curly textured hair.


With her unrivalled Afro hair expertise, creating her very own product line was the next natural step, leading to the creation of the Charlotte Mensah Manketti Oil Hair Care Collection.
