Roots

By Maryam Jamal

This series celebrates hair and the variety of creative techniques applied to its 

texture. Showing diversity was the goal, by exhibiting many skin tones. This series is 

dedicated to the art and history of hair, where it can be used as a statement.

Medina Dugger’s Chroma, a vibrant project where she celebrated the hairstyles of 

Nigerian culture, inspired these pieces. Duggwe pays homage to J.D. ‘Okhai 

Ojeikere’s revered ‘Hairstyles’ series in her Chroma project.
