Join me for the #BlackPantherHairstyleChallenge and create a #WakandaHairstyle
[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”orange” border_width=”3″][vc_column_text]The Black Panther movie is breaking all types of records before it even premiered. You probably already have your tickets yet are still thinking about that outfit you are going to rock on the historical night to be. Everything, just everything seems to have perfectly come together in this film: the cast, the music, the characters, the story, the costumes and goodness the outstanding natural hairstyles! From the bold bald naturals to Lupita’s Bantus and Michael B. Jordan’s Loc quiff, the hairdos are just inspiringly awesome!
So before thinking of an outfit, it might be a good idea to think about the hairstyle you will rock this Black History Month when the first ever Black super hero will be launched on the big screen in theaters worldwide. The choices are plenty.
You can go boldly bald like Okoye, the character played by Danai Gurira, who sharply rocks razor cuts like no other with her expressive face, flawless skin and eyes that are mysteriously fascinating.
You can also go with one of Angela Basset’s styles that vary from a super elegant hat that fits an African queen to simple cornrows braided in straight parts to the back.
There are also Shuri’s styles to take inspiration from, the character played by Letitia Wright , T’Challa’s kid sister who rocks a intricate braided rolled updos that exuberate royalty.
Then, of course, there is Nakia played by Lupita Nyong’o, who is a natural hairstylist herself. In the Black Panther movie Nakia wears her hair in Bantus, Bantu outs a fro, you can even see her rocking head scarves in her role as warrior goddess, guardian of Wakanda’s King T’Challa but never she fails to look flawless!
There is no lack of inspiration on the men’s side either. From T’Challa’s coily fro, the king to be played by Chadwick Boseman to the villan N’Jadaka played by Michael B. Jordan who rocks his locs, the natural hairstyles fascinatingly match the personalities of their characters.
So in anticipation to the premier, I call for the #BlackPanterHairstyleChallenge. Please join by rocking a #WakandaHairstyle! You can create it yourself or go to a salon to get your #WakandaHairstyle for that special day to walk in and out of the theater where you watched the Black Panther Movie that opening weekend.
You can see my #WakandaHairstyle at The #BlackPanther #WakandaHairstyles is worth the Challenge.
