Traveling expert shares her view on hairstyling
1 – Why do you change your hairstyle and how does it make you feel?
I don’t change hairstyles much because I currently have a TWA (teeny weeny afro). I mainly stick with twist/coil outs. I feel that my hair is an extension of myself, so I do my very best to keep it neat and beautiful at all times. I love my hair!
2 – Do you think women should stick to hairstyles that reflect their culture, ethnic groups or origin?
Black women most especially should have their own ideal of beauty. Black Beauty is not the standard nor is it catered to in many societies. Black kinky- coily- curly hair is not European, Asian, Indian, or any other hair. It is in its own class.
