“Beads and Braids ” Inspired By Ghanaian Women

During Nneka Ibeabuchi visit to Ghana, Nneka fell in love with this trend which is common among Ghanaian women which inspired her Beads and Braids Series.
 ” As a Nigerian born visiting Ghana for the very first time last December was an amazing experience for me. The series ” beads and braids ” was something I fell in love with while in Ghana. Every chance I had I was wearing different styles of traditional cornrow braids and I wanted the whole world to experience the beauty through me. The beads added a classic and traditional look and I want everybody to know beads are still in style and always will be. I personally picked the hairstyle and brought back beads for each model. This series was to give New face models a platform because I just knew the world would love it. Before I returned back to the US I already made sure I had my team ready for this project. I contacted Ferdinand Nyarko our photographer, Christiana Osawe our hairstylist,  Nneoma Nwaka Our makeup artist and also 5 different models, everybody was excited about the project, 2 weeks later Magic was created. ” ;
