The Coiffure Project


Black-and-white photos have never been this haute!

(Photographer: Glenford Nunez)

 “The Coiffure Project” is a collection of portraits celebrating the beauty of black with awesomely magnificent natural hair. Shot by Glenford Nunez of Baltimore, Maryland (TYP Photography Studio); the images are glorious and regal. This all started by accident. Nunez was looking at the extensive collection of pictures he’d taken of his natural-haired assistant one day, Nunez decided to run with the idea of photographing curly maned black women.

Nunez wasn’t aware of the natural hair movement on the rise but now that women from across the country have thanked him for providing inspiration, he hopes that this project will bring the beauty of natural hair to the forefront.

We hope so too!

“Touch it, dude!”


When a child relates to the Head of State and sees something of himself in that position, he is taught that he too can achieve the highest status in the land. No matter your race, gender or political affiliation, this image strikes a chord that speaks volumes!

(POTUS Barack Obama and a young visitor at the White House, circa 2009)

For decades at the White House, photographs of the current President at work, and at play, hang in the West Wing. The image above remains after more than three years and is just seeing the light of day from a New York Time’s article recently published. It did in fact touch the heart of the masses across all political lines…it’s been the hottest topic this week online and via email.

Here’s the skinny on the conversation that led to this moment:

"I want to know if my hair is just like yours," he told Mr. Obama, so quietly that the president asked him to speak again.
Jacob did, and Mr. Obama replied, "Why don’t you touch it and see for yourself?" He lowered his head, level with Jacob, who hesitated.
"Touch it, dude!" Mr. Obama said.
As Jacob patted the presidential crown…
"So, what do you think?" Mr. Obama asked.
"Yes, it does feel the same," Jacob said.


Halle Talks Hair


Halle Berry was recently interviewed on Elle Magazine’s fashion blog. She talked about hair, beauty and aging gracefully – three things that all women can appreciate. She spoke of her aesthetician who is her skin-whisperer, expressed that beauty is embracing every stage of your life with confidence and grace like Tina Turner and Audrey Hepburn and then Halle talked hair…

Elle:    You’re known for your pixie cut. What inspired you to grow your hair out?

Halle: Well, I’m probably not going to grow it out; these are extensions. I love short hair—that’s me, that’s who I am. I just feel confident and feel like my best self when I have short hair. But it’s fun to change sometimes. I get a little bored and, as a woman, I want to change my shoes, my outfit, and my hair. And thanks to extensions, it’s easy to do. The trick is that you have to get hair that looks like it’s actually growing out of your head—it has to be the same texture as your natural hair. My hair is naturally curly like this, so you’re not able to see where the extensions begin.

Yes, gotta love her for embracing it all – from her naturally curly hair to extensions. You’re your hair however you wear it!
