Hairdressing, body painting, art... Uschi Kuhn is passionate about it all

Uschi and her partner, Peter ThorneWhilst many people come to the Algarve to retire, local artist and businesswoman Uschi Kuhn has spent the last 15 years working as a hairdresser and body painter at her home in the picturesque hills above Loulé. 

Born in Germany, Uschi and her husband Rudi moved with their young family to South Africa in 1966 where they established a hairdressing business.  They returned to Germany in 1976 to start yet another hairdressing business in Leimen.  However, they both missed the climate, vegetation, stars, sea and sky of South Africa so much they couldn’t settle.
