At 35, Sizwe Sithole is operations manager and a senior stylist at Legents Hair & Grooming Lounge, where he is also a partner with a shareholding stake. He has been in the industry for eleven years and has a wealth of styling experience. Sithole was born in Mozambique and moved to South Africa while at primary school. After completing his schooling in Soweto, he obtained qualifications in hair and beauty technology, which kick-started a very rewarding career. He worked for the prominent Alex Hair Salon in Soweto before becoming a sales representative, selling hair and beauty products. Hungry for more, he decided to further his studies to understand the technical aspect of hair and beauty products. He then joined the Hair Images chain and worked his way up to become one of the most well-known and respected senior stylists in Gauteng. For relaxation, he usually watches TV and, when his busy schedule permits, enjoys spending time with his son.
