A visual tribute to brown skin. A visional testament to Black beauty. A vision board for healing.

Looking through thousands of #PrettyPeriod photos and admiring the beauty of our hair as much as the beauty of our skin. I think I’ll share some #PrettyHair shots this week.
First up - I call them “The Curlies.” We didn’t plan to shoot Nzinga, Stacey, and Ayesha together, but once their hair got into the same room, it was bound to happen.
