Cool hair threading

The traditional African style that stands above the rest – literally

Threading is found in many African countries especially in the West and Central part of the continent. It traditionally involves wrapping wool, yarn, extra shiny, extra strong mercerized cotton or nylon thread tightly and evenly (or unevenly for a specific effect) around small sections of hair. The hair becomes stiff but pliable and easily coiled or coaxed into bold geometric shapes perched on top of the crown. The style makes hair grow long and soft- such is the stretching effect of the style! When properly done it gives the wearer a very unique and exotic appearance.
