Jeanette Nkwate

Editor and content creator that loves beauty, fashion and spotting trends. Hair, fitness and SEO enthusiast.

United Kingdom

I’m a fashion and beauty journalist currently heading up for the UK market.

Caveats? I'm a caffeine and food junkie with a serious collection of nail varnishes and hair oils (because life is too short to wear just one colour of polish or to have dry hair, amirite?).

Headstands are my downfall, HIIT (literally) makes me weak at the knees and the crow pose continues to elude me.

Other noteworthy mentions: I spent the beginning of my career exploring the global trade show and fashion week circuit. I was previously the Catwalks Editor at Stylus Fashion and the Associate Events Editor at WGSN. I launched Homebuildlife-WGSN (now WGSN Lifestyle & Interiors) and; and contribute to Black Hair Magazine.
