Hello not sure if I've posted in the right place, I'm currently living in Cambridgeshire, I have a mixed race son and a black fiance, we're looking for someone to cornrow both their hair, in the area we've asked all the barbers in the village we live in and they don't do it, don't really want to travel back to Stratford just to have there hair done, does anyone know if any barbers near or in Cambridgeshire that will do it? :/ don't know where else to look/ask....

What about a hair dressers rather than Barbers ? - a European hairdresser may know where you can find an African Caribbean salon.

Or - if you are near a primary school are there any black or mixed race families - you could just approach a parent.

Or if you are out shopping and see a child with a style you like just ask the parent.

I am often stopped in the street and asked for details of who does my hair wink and My stylist has agreed for me to pass on her details - so I don't mind as I know it's not easy to find some one who is good and contacts are usually through word of mouth anyway.
Good luck !

Unfortunately we have met any mixed race families around here sad, we was going to go into Peterbrough but when we went there last time there was styles that actually looked decent! -.- are you near Cambridgeshire? We have a great barber in Stratford it's just the traveling -.- it's 3 hours from were we are 😐
