The photos in Glenford Nunez’s new “Coiffure Project” are enough to make you want to cut all of your hair off or start transitioning right this minute. In a stunning collection of black-and-white and color photographs, the 25-year-old Baltimore-based founder of TYP Photography Studio, is celebrating the beauty of black women and their diverse natural hair.
Nunez said the idea for the project came to him after he began looking at a group of photos he’d taken of his natural-haired assistant one day. From there, he decided to put together a collection of curly-haired black women.
“I had no idea until I started putting the photos together,” Nunez told The Huffington Post. “People have thanked me for what I’m doing for natural hair and black women, but I genuinely had no idea. It’s a super awesome feeling though.”
So far, the photographer has shot 10 women and he’s on the lookout for more subjects. “I find women just walking down the street, and I use models I’ve worked with in the past,” he said. “There’s always a certain essence and style I’m drawn to.”
Though Nunez’s photos have only found a home on his web site so far, he hopes to create a coffee table book soon to capture all of this beauty in one tangible place.
“Now that I know about the movement,”Nunez said, I’m hoping this project will really bring the beauty of natural hair to the forefront.”
