Photographer Michael Cunningham and author and journalist George Alexander have captured here the trinity of black women, hair, and beauty salons. Angela Garner says that "The beauty salon is the one great thing we get to share as African American women. It's therapeutic." Tisch Sims says that wearing fantasy hair makes her feel "like a goddess, a queen." From the afro to the ponytail to dreadlocks to braids to relaxed hair to fantasy hair; from "good hair" to bad hair days, in this book black women from the United States, Africa, and London explore the fascination with hair and beauty that has long been a cherished part of African American culture.--From publisher description.
