J.D. Okhai Ojeikere (1930-2014) a Nigerian photographer, documented the captivating hairstyles of young Nigerian women in the late 1960s. His Hairstyle Series consists of over a thousand pictures of fashionable African inspired hairstyles and is the largest of his archive to date. Ojeikere passed away at the age of 83 on the afternoon of February 2nd these pictures, there is no doubt that many of the hairstyles we now wear were inspired by African women. Here are a few of my favorites from the series.
