Mannequin wig stands & cosmetology training heads lack diversity.
A quick search for an African mannequin head will produce disappointing results. The models usually have European or unnatural features covered in ashy brown paint. I simply couldn’t relate to any of them and know that I’m alone.
I am Shaneka Neymour, designer and creator of Lady M. I was born and raised in The Bahamas and now live in Amsterdam. Lady M is my latest project, as I have previously founded a fashion brand called N’Mour (2012 - 2015) and beauty brand Over The Top (2015 - 2021) a collection of hand-made, ready-to-wear clip-in hairpieces for natural hair.
Using my super power to create, I believe that I have something very meaningful and relevant during this universal shift and time of change. With this unique, niche product I hope to inspire and bring awareness to proper representation of black beauty. SHOP
