What if I told you, that you could wear gold thread on your hair? Well, it’s because you can! Hair accessories have become a staple in every afro girl’s arsenal. They are a way to express yourself, to stand out and not to mention, look pretty cool in Instagram photos. Most important of all, traditional hair accessories are also a way to pay homage to one’s culture.
Minimalistic metallic rings add some class and charm to braided hair. Go for gold with these lovely charms to complete your look.
A fun and colourful way to stand out is wearing beaded hair accessories. Chepkemboi is the originator of the ‘’Own Your Culture’’ movement in Kenya. The movement is basically about embracing your roots. In our case, it is the African culture. It could be culture in any shape or form. She has done just that by incorporating stunning beaded accessories in her hair.
Suzianna has mastered the gold thread. She has been able to incorporate it into her hair and produced intricate hairstyles that are art gallery-worthy. In her hairstyle below she was inspired by the Himba women of Namibia who wear red dreadlocks with a tuft of hair at the end. She didn’t want to put red ochre in her hair like the Himba women do. She opted for gold thread instead to put a modern twist into it. Gold thread for the win!
For this look below, she opted for a subtle and elegant approach to styling with gold thread.
