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

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.

ELLE’s September issue, the highly anticipated annual bible of beauty and fashion, features black models in a tribute to black hair.

The “Natural Anthem” beauty shoot showcases six women of color rocking a collection of natural styles including afro puffs, sculpted baby hair and braids. The six models hail from Kenya, Burundi, and Canada. One of them was even discovered at a Beyonce concert in Toronto. In the article the models discuss what it was like being a part of the shoot, favorite hair care products, their day-to-day makeup routines, the relationships they have with their hair and their own treasured beauty icons.

The magazine’s beauty director, Vanessa Craft posted the following to her Instagram account:

“I’ve never been in a photo shoot where it’s all black people. Usually there is one black person and seven Caucasian women. We all come from different backgrounds and we can share stories together. And I kind of feel at peace because at other shoots, nobody would talk to each other,” Aliisa says.

“My sister is a hairdresser. I started with braids. My mom wouldn’t let me wear a weave because she said it would be too grown-up for me. Grade 5 graduation was the only time I could wear one; it was a clip-on ponytail. In Grade 8, I got to wear a long weave. I loved it! I would get it sewn in. But I would have to straighten it and comb it out, or brush it out. In high school, I started wearing all natural. [Wearing a weave] is too much time. You have to maintain it,” she added.

Major props to ELLE Canada for showing love to these gorgeous hairstyles and the black women who wear them better than anyone else ever could. Remember who STARTED this ish lol
