Take a journey on any bus or tube and marvel at the numerous methods we employ to wear our hair. There are now a wealth of techniques and styles to choose from and this new found freedom is liberating.’It’s been a long journey – from the seashores of the West Africa continent, through the middle passage and along the coast of the Americas – that we have struggled through for what today we can now define simply as our natural beauty.

For centuries we have followed a thread and fought for a away to become ourselves – and our greatest enemy has been ourselves.’But with positive images of Cicely Tyson, Angela Davis, Eldridge and Kathleen Cleaver, Bob Marley and, more recently, Lauryn Hill, Bilal or India Arie, the straightjacket is off and the time has arrived for us to revel in our own natural beauty. There’s never been a better time for Black hair.’

Bridal Special: Cultural Roots.

Locks can be just as elegant when doing special occasion styles, says Morris Aberdeen of natural hair salon Morris Roots.

Traditionally, the image of locks hasn’t been one of versatility, beauty or sophistication. And surely this is what’s called for on this special day. Every bride at her wedding wishes to look and feel like a princess. You’re the one person who lights up the room and all eyes will be on you. With well kept locks, all that’s required is to wash and condition the hair, twist or roll into a chignon or let loose to achieve a wavy look.
