Photographer Glenford Nuñez Uses The Coiffure Project To Celebrate Natural Black Hair

Every historic moment needs its recorder. The natural hair revolution now has the stunning photos of Glenford Nunez.

Nunez, the 25-year-old Baltimore-based founder of TYP Photography Studio, is the man behind “The Coiffure Project,” a collection of portraits celebrating the beauty of black women and their magnificent natural hair.

Shot in both black-and-white and color, Nunez’s work is simple yet striking — and to think the project only started by accident.

Looking at the extensive collection of pictures he’d taken of his natural-haired assistant one day, Nunez decided to run with the idea of photographing curly maned black women.

Sounds like a brilliant idea when you consider the current trend toward natural hair. The New York Times has covered the movement, countless YouTube tutorials provide tips, and celebs like Solange Knowles and Viola Davis have become official and unofficial poster women for au naturel awesomeness.

Interestingly enough, Nuñez had no idea that natural hair was all the rage nowadays.
