The body of work created in my Design + Muse collection was inspired by my “Black Hair Series”. This series explores Black hair types based on the hair type classification system that has been developed and modeled after Andre Walker's Hair Typing System. This series focuses on hair types 3A, 3B, 3C, 4A, 4B, and 4C. My intentions with this series were to expose and challenge harmful stereotypes around Black hair textures, many of which originated during the slave trade. I formed this body of work to celebrate the beauty that lies within our diversity.
