Black hair: art, style, and culture
From head to toe, no other physical attribute for a black woman is as culturally, socially, or politically charged as her hair. Black Hair celebrates the diversity and creativity of black women's hairstyles, from traditional and ceremonial styles to the urban twists and turns of modern styling. Collected stories, poetry, and non-fiction anecdotes pepper this pictorial look at the present and past of black women's crowning glory. Each page is lushly illustrated--from the vintage ads of America's first black female millionaire and black haircare mogul Madame C.J. Walker to the recent campaigns of current haircare giants. In addition, top hairstylists to the stars provide insights into their creative work. Black Hair celebrates hair--from long or short to kinky or bone-straight. No other book is as graphic and beautifully styled as Black Hair, making it not only a wonderful personal keeper but a timeless gift.
