The icon of style, incomparable Sophia Loren, was sure that “the hairstyle influences the way of the day and, in the end, life”. Women devote a lot of time to hair care, and hairstyle fashions are changing as rapidly as clothing preferences. Photographer J.D. Okhai ojeikere from Nigeria presented a large collection of photographs, which captured more than 1000 different hairstylesthat were popular with African women in the 1960s and 1970s.
Photo collection from J.D. Okhai Ojeikere is a great opportunity to plunge into the fashion of the last century. In the photo report "Hairstyles" you can see both everyday hairstyles and intricate designs "on the way out". Braids with original weaving, curls and curls, knots and buns - what you just will not see on the heads of Nigerian women. Many hairstyles for us seem unnecessarily cumbersome and complex, while half a century ago they were relevant. They resemble breathtaking hairstyles-sculptures from Joanna Petit-Frere, an extraordinary stylist, whose experiments we have already told the readers of the site Culturology.Ru.
J.D. himself Okhai Ojeikere admits that the Hairstyles project has become a way for him to explore the Nigerian culture for which the photographer has a genuine love and affection. In the photo project, all the emphasis is on the hairstyle: the viewer is not distracted by the faces of the models, you can completely immerse yourself in looking at the smallest details. The photographer chose the style of black and white minimalism, which also testifies to the self-sufficiency of the material he saw. J.D. Okhai Ojeikere notes with regret that hairstyles are short-lived, so the only way to immortalize these man-made creations is to capture them with a camera. He emphasizes that he always wanted to "document" moments of beauty, finding beauty in everyday life.
