Dorcas Atijere

She’s just 20 and comes from Nigeria, where, although very young, she has already gained experience, working for two years in a hairdressing salon. An expert in the treatment of afro hair, she came to Italy with the intention of learning to treat different hair.


What is the best part of working at Wave?

I’am a professional of extensions, but so far I have never worked with “Italian” hair. Here I have the opportunity to learn how to treat other types of hair and this is exactly what I wanted to do.

The historical period with the most beautiful hair?

This. Now it’s the most beautiful time for hair. In the past there was too much uniformity, the forms and creativity were limited, everything was very “old”.

Do you have a motto or a phrase that you feel yours?

“Do to others as you want them to do to you”, because it’s true: if you treat others badly, others will treat you badly accordingly.

Your favourite movie?

My favorite movie is a Nigerian one: “In Love with a Stranger”.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my free time I read a lot. I read the Bible, I meet a group of people, we read and talk about it together, we compare ourselves a lot. I also read books related to work, manuals and advices from hairdressers, to understand how it works in Italy and learn even more.

You never leave home without …?

My phone!

“Do to others as you want them to do to you”
