When we speak of bold and exciting hair we speak of Kwena Baloyi fondly called “Kween Kwena.” From her fashion takes to her hair, the freelance South African fashion stylist sees every thing as art. In Kwena’s opinion, “hair is an extension of who she is and expresses her personality more than any item of clothing.”
Kwena’s unconventional approach to hair is tied strongly to her African roots. Her hairstyles are inventive, experimental and a great inspiration for black women to celebrate their natural hair.
Using mostly woven threads, intricate designs and beads or cowries as embellishments, Kwena’s hairstyles are the antithesis to traditional braids, twists, wigs and weaves which are more popular with black women all over the world. It is easy to see that her hair takes truly reflect on her personality: bold, strong and fearless; after all, that’s what it takes to pull off hairstyles as eccentric and powerful as Kwena’s.
Let Kwena Baloyi’s hairstyles inspire the African queen in you…
