    Hairstyles of African women are contrasted with the latest London hairdos from 'Emile'.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Head of the house! A "mixed-grill" in coiffures.'

    Africa / London.

    Various shots of African women and their ornate hairstyles. Commentator says they are "dusky leaders of hairdressing fashions". Most have several sections of hair coiled closely to their heads.
