As early as the 15th century, hairstyles were used to convey messages to society at large. Hair maintenance was aimed at creating a sense of beauty in traditional Africa and according to Sylvia Ardyn Boone, an anthropologist specialising in the Mende culture of Sierra Leone, different styles could “indicate a person’s marital status, age, religion, ethnic identity, wealth and rank within the community”.

In the 21st century, hairstyles are still sending messages to society, however, now, the focus is on a woman owning her beauty. Speciality braids are growing in popularity because of their hot water properties that allow them to become curly or straightened when dipped in hot water. This makes it easier for today’s modern and upwardly mobile women to change their hairstyles as often as they like and feel beautiful, confident, empowered, elegant and glamourous – taking centre stage every day of the week.
