STYLIN’ haircare present the CREATIVE CONQUERORS city art tour 2019.
Leading hair care brand, Stylin’, is a brand synonymous with South Africans
and our unique South African story. Formerly known as Stylin’ Dredz, the
brand is all about owning individuality, styling your story and standing out in a
way that is encouraged and celebrated. It’s about living on your own terms,
creating your own world and thriving in that unique creation.
In 2018 Stylin’ introduced The Creative Conquerors- a collective of creatives in various
disciplines who have crafted their careers and seen great success doing what
they truly love. They embody the Stylin’ ethos and use their art forms, self-
expression and creativity to help reshape the world we live in. 2019 sees a new
group of Creatives Conquerors, joining the movement.
Introducing the Stylin’ City Art Tour
The 2019 Creative Conquerors have each chosen a location in and around
Johannesburg CBD needing upliftment and added their creative touch to curate
signature urban art installations.
These installations will act as landmarks for the Stylin’ City Art Tour- which is
available for the public to experience at no cost for three months. Consumers will
have the opportunity hop onto a Stylin’ Bus and take the tour to visit these
installations while learning about the inspiration behind each piece of artwork-
taking in an authentic Jozi experience, as the backdrop to the creative flair
provided by the Creative Conquerors
