In October 2009, Shear Illusions launched its first ever publication, a bi-monthly magazine known as the 'Shear Hair & Beauty'. It seized production in December 2011 due to high operation and printing costs. The magazine was a Beauty Manual for the African Woman, one of the best quality local magazine in the market at the time. The magazine was and is still a household name to urban women in Tanzania and our plan is to revive it in the coming year or so. The magazine catered for women of all walks of life and had won great reviews from all our customers. Our claims are based on the feedback we have received from all our readers and not biased by self-judgment.
