PRESENTING "UGO" aka MAKE ME

Women-dominated professions are fast becoming male bastions. After chefs, it is now the hair dressing arena that is throwing up some of the best names in the industry. The bubbly city of Lagos has its fair share of male hairdressers in keeping with the trend of increasing male hairstylists across the world.

Whether it dates back to Vidal Sassoon of the '60s, famous for the bob and geometric haircuts, Toni and Guy with their cutting edge styles to famed hair experts like Fredric Fekkai (Sandra Bullock and Barbara Streisand's hairdresser), Andre Walker (Oprah Winfrey's hairstylist) — the list of male hairstylists is endless. Among others are Allen Edwards does Dustin Hoffman and Raquel Welch's hair and is also famous for Farrah Fawcett's shag hair cut.

Here in Lasgidi , one name that comes readily when the Stars are mentioned is Ugochukwu Igbokwe simply known as Mr MAKE ME .
