I enjoyed this book. The black and white photography is stunning and helps the reader to make the transition from seeing these hairstyles as incidental aspects of personal adornment to recognizing them as public works of art. The women's faces remind us that this is a living art form. The portraits, accumulated from weddings, offices and public festivals truly convey the extent to which these styles meld contemporary style sense and awareness of traditional Nigerian adornment practices. I highly recommend this book for those interested in photography and the modern history of women's adornment in Africa. This book will also provide wonderful insights for a wide variety of individuals, for example, interested in the politics of African and African diasporic hairdressing in the context of cultural studies, women's studies, African American studies and art history.
