I cannot help but to idolize natural hair braiding that’s straight from the mother land. There is just something very appealing to it. Have you seen photos of authentic African hair braiding styles? They are STUNNING!
I could not help but to be completely smitten with some photos of Ethiopian women over the weekend. A traditional style in Ethiopia involves braiding the front of the hair and allowing the back to be loose. Sounds simple but when it is done correctly, it almost looks like these women are wearing crowns and tiaras on their heads!
While on my own natural hair journey, I’ve decided to take down my dreadlocks that I’ve had for almost 4 years to embrace my hair in its natural texture. And when I came across the majestic braid styles of Ethiopian women, I will attempt this style myself once my dreads are completely out.
Until then, enjoy this video of a woman doing a traditional Ethiopian braid style.
