Haute Coiffure: When hairdressing becomes a work of art

© MEDIATV PRESSE

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! Twice a year, French Haute Coiffure's members from around the globe gather in Paris to discover new trends in hairdressing and to master the latest techniques in cutting and colouring. Hair shows are also becoming popular in Africa. FRANCE 24 checks out the International Festival of African Fashion in Agadez, Niger.

Finally, we meet Murielle Kabile, a visionary artist who realised that hair can be used just like clothes.
