OUR BELOVED CORNROWS

1 Mins read

Cornrows are so pretty to wear and style. Cornrows are more than just a hair-do as they tell the African story of cultural and racial identity as well as love, resilience, skill, creativity and art. 

Cornrows started in sub-Saharan Africa. During colonialism, it served as a means of communication among slaves. Cornrows gained popularity and  became more than just a slave hairstyle in 1960’s and 1970’s. The first woman to wear her natural hair on TV was Cicely Tyson. Cornrows are even prettier and more creative these days. Styles range from all-back to shuku, to braids and twists and so much more. 

For Africans, cornrows play a huge role in our history, identity and childhood. Shout out to Africans who wear their hair and protect our black heritage.
