Trending African women hairstyles in 2019

Hair is of course important to all women but when it comes to African women, hair is more than just important. Historically, many cultures in continental Africa developed hairstyles that defined status, or/and identity in regard to age, ethnicity, wealth, social rank, marital status, religion, fertility, adulthood and death. Hair was carefully groomed by those who understood the aesthetic standard, as the social implications of hair grooming were and still are a significant part of community life.

A hairstyle is an African woman’s crowning glory and as such we have dedicated some time to provide you with the latest hairstyles and fashion tips from industry gurus on this year.
