My Accra, by Hairstylist Charlotte Mensah

The place of her happy childhood, Accra holds a special place in the heart of Charlotte Mensah, an acclaimed stylist, entrepreneur and philanthropist. From bustling markets to tony boutiques to hip restaurants, she has her finger on the pulse of what makes this city tick, and she shares her special finds with us. A visit Makola Market first, a great place to wander and to get lost in. They have the best fabrics if you’re looking for wax prints or tie dye. The Niobe Salon and Spa is perfect for a manicure or pedicure, or a hot-stone massage. Another favourite place is The Mix Design Hub, which is a restaurant and work space. Speaking of beauty, ADA Noldor Artist Residency in Labadi really brings something different to Ghana. It’s the first contemporary art museum in the country.
