Braiding is a centuries old technique which never got out of fashion. Dozens of braiding styles and colourful hairbands to get a brand new look, it’s just as easy as it seems. Definitely more complex, what Californian photographer Medina Dugger depicts in her project “Chroma: An Ode to J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere’” is basically today’s version of ancient African style hair braiding.
Silk, cotton and wook thread are knotted and twisted around hair to create colourful extensions which are representing today’s version of an age-old technique.
