“home means so much more now”

An English man’s home is his castle, so the saying goes. In 2021 it’s probably fairer to say a British woman’s castle is also her office, hotel, restaurant, pub, gym, doctor’s surgery and somewhere around the bottom of the list, home. The four walls we chose to surround ourselves with pre-pandemic accidentally became the be all and end all of the past two years. What might once have been ‘just somewhere to sleep at night’, became somewhere to operate our entire lives from – one very under-pressure space. So perhaps it is no surprise that one of the very few retail sectors to emerge from the pandemic smiling was homewares and interiors, while traditional high-street fashion brands – including Mango, Zara and H&M – continue to make big moves from…

“we have to give ourselves space to be angry”

watch this Jolt star Laverne Cox talks to Stylist about the importance of expressing rage If there was a film to encapsulate the conflicting moods of this past year, Jolt might be it. Brilliantly erratic, it tells the story of Lindy (Kate Beckinsale) whose violent impulses – which she controls by giving herself a jolt of electricity – lead her down a path of revenge to track down her boyfriend’s killer, at the same time as Detective Nevin (Laverne Cox). The film might be action-packed, but it’s the subversive exploration of rage that will make it worth your while. Stylist speaks to Cox to find out more. Jolt challenges the action film stereotypes of women ‘waiting to be saved’. Was that appealing? Definitely, but I’ve also always wanted to be in an action film…

next step for hair equality

take action In the four years since we launched Stylist’s Hair Equality campaign, big (and long overdue) steps have been taken in the beauty industry. The most recent? Cutting and styling Afro and textured hair has finally become a standard requirement within the UK hairdressing curriculum. But what about the stylists that have long been qualified? L’Oréal’s professional hair division, which includes brands such as Kérastase and Redken, has a plan. This month, it launches Curls And Coils, an in-depth online training course for all of its partner salons and stylists that unravel the ins and outs of textured hair. Tapping up industry giants like Charlotte Mensah, the free programme will fill in some of the holes in the hair education of UK stylists within L’Oréal’s pro network: from identifying different…

the woman saving a lost language

News you didn’t know you needed South Africa In Northern Cape, South Africa, an 87-year-old woman is single-handedly reviving a dead language. Katrina Esau, who grew up just outside the Kalahari Desert, was banned from speaking her native tongue of N|uu during the apartheid-era and is today thought to be the only living speaker. That doesn’t mean she is willing to let it go without a fight. Last month, Esau released the children’s book !Qhoi n|a Tjhoi (Tortoise And Ostrich) in N|uu, Afrikaans and English to help children learn more about this click-rich language. If that wasn’t enough, she regularly teaches classes in schools to help locals get to grips with it first-hand, often using songs and images to inspire them. “As long as there are people, the language must go on,”…
