Much like the 100 Years of Beauty series from WatchCut Video, bloggers from the Black & Beautiful blog dedicated a video to Nigerian hairstyles throughout the years. Starting from the early 1900’s with a fun Fro Fro, the stylists weaved several simple to intricate hairstyles within a 60-second video.
The Black & Beautiful blog is about celebrating the beauty of black women and this video shines a much-needed light on the timeless hairstyles that are forever placed in the history of black women and culture. Each hairstyle symbolizes more than a style but rather a movement.
As the video travels through several decades the hairstyles change but the purpose and the beauty remains unwavering. Black is indeed beautiful.
Press play and watch threading, braiding and puffs come together to make Nigerian hair history.
