Hairstyles: A Throwback

Scroll down to content


This image depicts the hairstyles and accessories that my mom, as well as the mother’s of many other black girls, would put on us when we were younger. These specific styles are just a few that I wanted to showcase because of it’s familiarity in my life. My mom would put cornrows in my hair so that I could swim in the summer and the other two hairstyles were for school. All of these hairstyles are accessorized with beads, knockerballs, or barrettes to make them appear more youthful. What are some hairstyles that you used to have as a young girl?
