#Black Hair + Books: Nigerian Hairstyles by Ojeikere

50 years of hairstyles are captured in this beautiful book.

Hello Meltingpot Readers,

50 years of hairstyles are captured in this beautiful book.
50 years of hairstyles are captured in this beautiful book.

For today’s book about Black hair, I’m digging into the Meltingpot archives to re-introduce the work of Nigerian photographer J.D. Okhai Ojeikere. Last year he published a book of black and white photographs, capturing 50 years of Nigerian hairstyles. I wrote it about here on the Meltingpot, so you can revisit that post and get lost in his stunning portraits of hair artistry.

Enjoy.

Peace + Hair Grease!
