90s Inspired Hairstyle | Buns on Loc’d Hair

Almost 2 years into my loc journey and I feel like ive master the styles. I feel would look cute on my face with this length of locs lol. So I took it back way back to my favorite era which is the 90s and googled a wide range of fly hairstyles. I was torn between two like Letoya Luckett but then I knew this style was for me. Then i began second guessing myself because i didnt think my locs where long enough for 2 full buns….. I was wrong! Check out how my stylist created this 90s Inspired Hairstyle

Definitely cant wait to rock this hairstyle with some dope chokers

Rihanna’s style has always been to die for (well not die for but yall get it). She always keeps us guessing, especially when it comes to fashion, her spread in Paper magazine is no different. She’s giving us some real 90s punk rock in these pics, and I’m in love with the whole artsy vibe.

Dope Exhibit Showcasing Traditional African Hairstyles

“I think it’s important to preserve black hairstyles…Black people, especially, should be charged with preserving their own history. ”

-Shani Crowe

“Rope trick,” “Rope twists,” “Boxer Braids,” are all hairstyles black women have been doing for centuries. We don’t “own” these hairstyles, per se, but they are significant and prevalent across the greater black culture. For many of us, it can be frustrating to see our styles paraded about without anyone acknowledging or paying homage to the originators.

That’s why Natural Hair Sculptor and Photographer, Shani Crowe’s photo exhibit, BRAIDS, is so powerful. Shani does an outstanding job of reclaiming and preserving Traditional African hairstyles, many of which, are still being used today.
