Nikiwe Dlova is a hair artist and stylist that creates beautiful, intricate, gravity defying pieces of art that happen to go on your head! Her work is whimsical and beautiful, and she has become known for her styling – both for shoots and also for individual clients. She walks us through some of her fave images and why she loves them so much.
“I love this series. It was all about allowing hair expression at schools. It was inspired by pupils of Pretoria Girls High School who protested against their school conduct about black hair. I used my cousins as models and they did a great job.”
“This is a new expansion for OwnURcrown — I design headpiece accessories for events, productions, editorials etc, which can be hired or bought.”
