Bel’s Beauty Complex came into existence in April 2014 as a Hair Salon. It symbolises a manifestation of the childhood dream of the proprietor, Mrs Belinda Asafo-Agyei.
Mrs Belinda Akosua Asafo-Agyei is a certified and qualified hairdresser of 20 years standing who first trained in Ghana. She set herself up in business shortly afterwards with her parents help as ‘Akobel Hairdressers’ and earned the nickname ‘Akobel’. She then moved permanently to the UK following her marriage to Reverend Herman Asafo-Agyei in 2004 and has since added superfluously to her ever-growing hairdressing qualifications. She is also a worship leader and gospel singer at Northolt Grange Baptist church.
Belinda has expressed a significant love for the patterns and colours of the Ghanaian Culture and has thus decided to showcase this in her African Cultural Show whilst also supporting the Sickle Cell Society in the UK. After the show's massive success with even the Mayor of Hillingdon attending, Belinda decided to provide a space where amazing African wear could be showcased 24 hours, 7 days a week.
She is a mother of three daughters and is very sensitive to the needs of children, including their hairstyle and presentation.
