Females of various cultures love to adorn themselves with beauty products and one area they spend time on is their hairs.
Hair follicle anchors each hair into the skin. The hair bulb forms the base of the hair follicle. In the hair bulb, living cells divide and grow to build the hair shaft. Blood vessels nourish the cells in the hair bulb, and deliver hormones that modify hair growth and structure at different times of life.
In today’s fast paced world, more ladies find having a weave cap or wig can lessen the burden and time spent to make the hair look presentable to work and other social gatherings.
There is also hair made-up for photo-shoots intended to land on front pages of magazines or television shows, even billboards.
In the following pictures, we find the hair stylist taking inspiration from the African Buffalo with its curvy horns replicated in hair form.
Then there is the knotted African hair in Bantu Knot style with attractive paint marks on the face accentuated with neck bangles.
There’s the braided hair bonded into a long cone of course with other lovely offerings and then there is the flowing hair following the bearer closely.
