Hair DOs

Do DO these DOs: Teeny braids, twists n’ turns, sculpted coils. Nigerian born photographer J.D Okhai Ojeikere captured the hairstyles of young Nigerian women in the late 1960s. ‘Hairstyle Series’ consists of over a thousand pictures of fashionable coifs and is the largest of his archive to date.

‘All these hairstyles are ephemeral. I want my photographs to be noteworthy traces of them. I always wanted to record moments of beauty, moments of knowledge’. – J.D. Okhai Ojeikere
