"Braiding is a sacred art in a lot of ways, because it's so rich in tradition. A lot of the time, we don't really understand how much it means." (Fusion

With a BFA in Film Production, Shani Crowe brings together cultural coiffure and beauty rituals to make up her work!

In recent years, we have seen people of all races and genders from all over the world adopt braiding and it has become a 'trend' and a part of POP Culture. However, braiding has been around for decades! Especially in African culture. 

Shani recently stated that "plenty of cultures do their own braid styling, but African braiding has its own very long chapter in the history of braiding." (Fusion) And we could not agree more!!!
