Tenderheaded - Book

$20.00 Sold Out

Hair is deeply rooted in the identity of black women but black hair has always had a hard time finding its place in American society. Often, a choice in hairstyle, accompanied with a darker skin color, is subject to misjudgment and bias. Despite it's tangled history, black hair has always been innovative and unapologetic.

TENDERHEADED explores the intersection of hair choice, skin color, and self-identity. It aims to capture how black hair operates as a method of self-expression and individuality. It also seeks to normalize hairstyles that would otherwise be considered "ghetto" or "classless" due to its nonconformity to European beauty standards.
