Description: Black Hair celebrates the diversity and creativity of black women's hairstyles, from traditional African ceremonial styles, and sleek trendy hairdos to the infinite variety of braids, plaits, and twists which pepper the urban landscape. Stories, nonfiction anecdotes, historical details, and poems from some of the finest African-American writers amplify this one-of-a-kind pictorial collection of black women's crowning glory. Each page is lavishly illustrated, from rare vintage ads of America's first black female millionaire and black hair-care mogul Madame C. J. Walker, to dynamic campaign posters of current hair care products.

In addition, renowned hair stylists give expert tips and reveal the secrets of their styling techniques, of which there are almost as many as there are types of hair. Best-selling author and great granddaughter of Madame C. J. Walker, A'Lelia Bundles sums up in her foreword the creative history of black women's hairstyles.

Long or short, kinky or bone-straight, Black Hair captures the beauty and inventiveness of hairstyling trends and traditions, the humor of haircare angst, and the complexities of black women's relationship with their hair. No other book celebrating hair is as richly illustrated or as exquisitely designed as Black Hair, making it not only a wonderful reference but a timeless gift.
