Have you heard of the Glenford Nunez Coiffure Project?….
Well don’t feel badly, we just heard of it ourselves.
Glenford Nunez is a young photographer who was surprised to learn that more and more Black women, and the number is still climbing, are embracing their natural tresses regardless of the method they use to get there. So with his genuinely creative mind, he embarked upon a project to capture the essence and the beauty of locks of women from the African Diaspora.
To do this the 25 year old – based in Baltimore, MD – set up shop at his TYP Photography Studios and got “cracking”! He initially started off by shooting photographs of his natural haired assistant and moved on to taking pics of 10 more candidates. Each photo is quite imaginative and although they mostly reside on his website, Nunez plans to acquire more subjects and eventually create a Coffee Table Book.
The transition to natural hair can be a cause of stress for some but it is honestly does not have to be. Incorporating natural textured, quality hair extensions can sincerely help with the conversion. Depending on the texture one possesses, ONYC® offers hair textures such as the popular Kinky Curly (see pic below), as well as the Curly Addiction (see pic below). These textures can be used to cover the entire Coiffure with the use of a Frontal Closure – which invented by our CEO, specifically works to protect the hair – or with a “leave out” to supplement one’s own hair. So please don’t be anxious. If you are considering showcasing your God-Given hair, you do have options!
Celebrate You today!….and let’s celebrate “The Coiffure Project”.
