JOBURG // I LOVE YOU

The Hair Film that I’m busy writing and am praying to the ansisters will be produced in 2015 is the project that keeps on giving.  While doing some research on hair salons in Yeoville, Hillbrow, Troyeville and Bellevue recently, I noticed a hilarious trend that I had such fun capturing: Joburg businesses with quirky and descriptive names.

I’ll share the next lot when I’m out and about again! These are nuances to a city that are difficult to notice when one is always in a car. On foot, they become so visible.

    Hahaha! I saw a lot of religious shop names in Ghana and Nigeria a few years ago, never expected the trend to move to Joburg. “Jesus is coming General Dealer”
