Completewith stories, folklore and traditional hair care secrets, Hairtalkprovides a full sense of the history of the many braiding stylesthat have become a staple in American culture. Pore through 51styles for adults and nine for children - including some withsynthetic and natural extensions - and learn all of the basicbraiding techniques. But most importantly, James and her 12 Africanbraiders from all over the continent provide a compelling accountof the tribal meanings and ritualistic uses of each unique look,expanding the value and significance of braiding beyond merefashion.
