When we talk about cuts in the world of haute couture, we're usually talking about clothes. But there's another type of cut that's integral to high fashion: haircuts!

Hair shows are also becoming popular in Africa. FRANCE 24 checks out the International Festival of African Fashion in Agadez, Niger.
