The Texture Lounge is your go-to source for all things Texture.

Finally, we interview our favourite Muses and share with you their successes, challenges, tips and best practices. "Essentially, Texture is fabric. Wear yours how you wish. I certainly do. No fabric of hair is more or less superior to the other.” - Tumi Soyinka, CEO & Editor-in-Chief, The Texture Lounge.
