The Hair Ties Series created by UNRULY in partnership with Smooth n’ Shine shares the hair journeys of women and those who encouraged them to love their hair. The 7 part series, takes us along the timeline of experiences, influencers and history that have all shaped each lovely lady’s feelings about hair from childhood to their present state.
We all had someone that helped to show us what to do with our hair; it might have been your mom, sister, friend it’s always somebody. As black women our hair is unique in that it requires more maintenance than any other hair type and while that isn’t always fun the upside is we have so much versatility. Our styling sessions can be a couple hours or more, so during that time we form a bond with whoever is helping us get our hair together.
#Hairties is a message from this generation to the next because now more than ever we’re in a position to define what’s beautiful and shape how the next generation feels about their hair. In this context, a #hairtie is anyone, be it a friend, sister, stylist or blogger, that has influenced the way you do or view your hair. – UNRULY
