African stylists will demonstrate their skills in hair braiding and wrapping at Willingboro Public Library on Thurs., Apr. 23 at 7 p.m. Audience members will be able to try the techniques shown. This free program is open to the public. No registration is required.
Hair dressers from Kady African Hair Styling in Willingboro who hail from the African countries of Guinea, Nigeria, and Liberia will demonstrate West African styles. Neftah Aminah Bell will demonstrate hair wrapping techniques using African fabrics.
"Africans style or wrap their hair every day," says librarian Paulette Doe-Williams, herself a native of Liberia. "There are styles for everyday and styles for special occasions." Both types will be demonstrated.
