The Garage Magazine ‘Fractal Affinities’ editorial is filled with sculptural afro hairstyles. From undulating braids to multi-hued curls and puffy pom-poms, the looks are fun, flirty and entirely experimental. The photo shoot taps into the eccentric and booming hair industry for black women.
Lensed by Belarus-born photographer Elle Muliarchyk, the Garage Magazine ‘Fractal Affinities’ editorial stars Ataui Deng, Jeneil Williams, Cora Keegan and Nairoby Matos. Appearing in the publication’s spring and summer 2012 issue, the photo shoot is as vibrant as a rainbow. The models were elegantly styled by Jenke-ahmed Tailly. Nevertheless, it is the masterpiece works of hairstylists Astou Toure and Thomas Dunkin that rightfully steal the show. From bold updos to tight curls, the hairstyles push a variety of aesthetic boundaries.
