The Maki Oh fashion show was the perfect blend of West African fashion meets European silhouettes. As each model sashayed down the runway the clothes moved and had detailing that would make you want to spend all your coin on the designs by Lagos born designer, Amaka Osakwe. While we loved the clothes, we spent some time backstage and could not get over the hair! Celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen was behind the braided ponytails intertwined with fabric from the collection, afro puffs, finger waves, structured afros and more. One thing I loved about this show was that it showed the versatility of Black hair. It also included straightened styles serving a 60’s hair flip to die for.
The stand out look was the “Finger Wave Dominatrix Braid.” Stephen explained, “It’s all about taking a simple look to new heights. This is a modern take on a dominatrix-esque theme with the addition of the face framing finger waves.”
