Corn rows & mohawks uThanDiLe (c)2013

 

In those societies of nature, the so called ‘traditional cultures’, hairstyles were more than identity cards. By looking at an individuals hair pattern, one could tell their age-group, social status, profession, royalty, clan etc. I decided to see how them conr-rows would do to my head…reclaimin’ a lil’ bit of our culture. The new age minds are still convinced that hair plaiting is a woman’s thing. However, when you do some littel research about our history, the opposite holds true.
