MIMI’S MONTHLY ROUNDUP: AUGUST FAVOURITES
It’s over and out from the Great British summertime – I know, I know. I can’t bear it either. But that’s not to say that I haven’t got some super exciting things in store this September at Mimi et Mina. Watch this space!
This month, I’ve loved creating some heavenly summer looks for my clients, as well as gearing up for the launch of my brand new wig range and sharing my top hair care tips over on Instagram. To see more of what I’ve been up to this August, be sure to head over to YouTube and check out my channel Mimi Koné and subscribe for exclusive hair, business and lifestyle content.
I’d love to share with you what I’ve been obsessed with recently. And so, here is Mimi’s monthly roundup – a whistlestop tour of all the things that have captured my senses in August 2022.
Mimi sees…the Nelson Makamo exhibition
I loved visiting esteemed South African artist Nelson Makamo’s first UK exhibition in over five years at the Noho Showrooms, west London. His charcoal and oil artworks, which attempt to alter “the global mindset of what it means to be an African child”, are exquisite and moving.
Mimi listens to…Love, Damini by Burna Boy
Burna Boy’s sixth studio album is just divine. Each track on Love, Damini has blown me away – the Nigerian singer is a complete star and I can’t wait to see what’s next for him.
Mimi smells…English Pear & Freesia by Jo Malone
My must-have summer scent this year is Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia fragrance. Ripe and fresh with a verdant fervour, I simply can’t be without it.
Mimi feels…the salon’s brand new wig collection
Run, don’t walk! I am thrilled that my brand new range of wigs is launching this September. Crafted from grade 9A hair, these effortless styles are my bounciest yet. Up your hair game and check them out.
Mimi tastes…west African cuisine at the restaurant Ikoyi
Head over to Michelin-starred Ikoyi in St James’s Market for a taste explosion of sub-Saharan spices, with a menu based around British micro-seasonality. The dishes were incredible – I highly recommend you pay them a visit.
