Illustrations done using false “marley” hair and hair glue

The versatility of black hair is extroadinary and I find it even more extroadinary that so
many women reject this part of themselves. I experimented with an afro-style synthetic
hair piece and decided to create some shapes to show the versatility. I placed it next to the
straight hair to show a clear contrast. The hair on the left is soft and hair like yet the afro
hair looks alien. This is often how I felt about my hair as a child.
