From 1920s Vintage Curl to 1990s Box Braids! Go Through “100 Years of Beauty” in Natural Hairstyles


 on 100 Years of Beauty - BellaNaija - January2015

Beauty has come a long way. And with every passing decade we see it evolve and transform to better versions of itself through the expressions of hair & makeup on men and women everywhere.

Last year, the creative team at made a video named “100 Years of Beauty” where we saw the evolution of beauty from one decade to the other over a span of a century. From the Pompadour of the 1910s and the vintage curls of the 1920s to the pro-black symbolism of the afro in the 1970s and the box braids of the 1990s; the team takes us on a journey through the ages of beauty.


Watch the original 100 Years of Beauty video released last year alongside this years’video

    They all look great! As a naturalista though some of these styles are not easy to do for an everyday look.

      Put a comb thru when it is wet or damp or finger comb. That’s the best way sis.

    Very interesting to see white ladies working to create many of the great naturalista hairstyles. Wouldn’t have thought they would be that familiar with manipulating black hair so well.
