Charlotte Mensah Wins Two Prestigious Awards In Less Than 48 Hours

Multi award-winning hairdresser Charlotte Mensah ensured that November 2016 ended with a bang by winning two awards in less than 48 hours. After being entered into the Black Beauty/Sensationnel Hair Awards Hall of Fame on Sunday (27th) for winning the ‘Styling Team of the Year’ accolade a phenomenal three times, Charlotte’s hero Manketti Hair Oil was named ‘Best Product For Afro Hair’ at the marie claire Hair Awards 2017 on Tuesday (29th November) morning.


Created to celebrate the industry, the marie claire Hair Awards 2017 held their debut ceremony at prestigious London venue ‘The Ivy’, where the winners were announced over a sumptuous breakfast of ….


The Charlotte Mensah Manketti Hair Oil (RRP £42, 100ml), which delivers moisture, softness, definition and shine to Afro, mixed-race and all curl hair types, whilst still allowing weightless movement, fought off competition from a host of brands to win its second accolade since launching just eight months ago. In September, the luxurious product won ‘Best Afro Hair Enhancer’ at the Best Beauty by Stylist Awards.


Charlotte and her ‘Hair Lounge’ salon team also celebrated their success at the Black Beauty/Sensationnel Hair Awards at the London Hilton Metropole where they were honoured for a hattrick of Styling Team of the Year wins (2013, 2014 and 2015). The awards, which marked their 22nd year are seen as the ultimate accolade in the Afro hairdressing calendar.


These achievements are in addition to Charlotte Mensah notching up a million views for a video clip filmed behind the scenes in October at Ghana Fashion Week 2016 for AJ+. It even came to singer Solange Knowles’ attention and an article about Charlotte was posted on her blog Saint Heron:


And if all of the above accomplishments weren’t enough, Charlotte Mensah was also one of just 12 women to be hand-picked to appear on the front cover of leading trade title HJ. In their special November issue, which celebrated the most inspirational women in hairdressing, Charlotte was heralded as an ‘Afro Hair Trendsetter’ lauded for helping to bring Afro Hairdressing into the mainstream.

Charlotte is thrilled with her recent achievements:

“After working for six years to bring it to market, I thought the launch of my Manketti Hair Oil Collection in March would be the highlight of my year. So to then go on and win the marie claire Hair Award, Best Beauty By Stylist award, be inducted into the Black Beauty/Sensationnel Hair Awards Hall of Fame, appear on the HJ cover and achieve so many views for the Ghana Fashion Week video has left me lost for words. I feel truly blessed and appreciative that all the long hours, hard work and commitment I’ve invested over the years are paying off. I’m now looking forward to spending a relaxing Christmas with my family and then coming back revitalised and ready to make 2017 even bigger and better.”
