In this episode of #Hairties we find ourselves in Nigeria in the early 1960s where Dupsy gets her hair plaited by her mom, her first #hairtie. She would later find more #hairties in the friends she makes at boarding school. Watch her journey and hear her message.
#Hairties is a message from this generation to the next because now more than ever we’re in a position to define what’s beautiful and shape how the next generation feels about their hair. In this context, a #hairtie is anyone, be it a friend, sister, stylist or blogger, that has influenced the way you do or view your hair.
In a seven-part video series, proudly presented in partnership with Smooth ‘N Shine, #Hairties shares the stories of six women across three generations, the individuals that influenced their hairstyles over the years, and the message they want to pass down to the next generation. But the message is bigger than only their stories, so we’re also asking women everywhere to add their voice.
