Back in the day, I was an avid reader of all black hair and style magazines, with Essence at the top of my list. I was on the lookout for pictures of natural hairstyles. On a regular basis, the magazines gave me what I needed, and I’d cut out the pictures and put them in my huge hairstyle picture album that I have been compiling for many years. These pictures are from the 80’s and 90’s, and I believe anyone bold enough can rock any of these styles. But don’t be deceived, you have to be secure in your natural self without fear of negative comments, but not overly affected by praise and awe either. Enjoy!
