To me, people of African descent are the most vibrant, unique and clever people. We can create a million ways to use/make something, and that ‘something’ spawns yet another thing. It’s in our DNA! We’re the greatest inventors, musicians and–in my opinion–hairstylists in the world.
I’ve seen some hairstyles on African-American and African men/women that are noteworthy, and…..umm, well…noteworthy. You know what I’m talking about. If not, go to any Bronner Brothers or Natural Hair show and get a load of some incredibly artistic, annnnnd–shall we say—some noteworthy (have I used that word yet?) hairstyles.
As I always say, ‘what goes around comes around’. So when I stumbled upon these old pictures of African descendants I said, “Wow! We’ve been creating hair masterpieces FOREVER!”
Whether you think it looks teriffic or horrific, they’re creative and you gotta give an “A” for imagination! I love to look at African hairstyles to get inspiration for unique ways to rock my locs. As a matter of fact, finding these pics inspire me to transform some of my hairstyles into…you guessed it; yet another thing :-).

Here’s to the end of all ‘hairy’ situations!
