8 Hairstyles By Kayra Theodore That Prove Black Girl Hair Is Art

Model Kayra Theodore continues to show the world through her artistic creativity what Black women have known our entire lives - Black hair is art. Our hair defies gravity and can twist and turn to tell the stories of our ancestors and our futures while allowing us to express vast parts of ourselves through our crown.


Kayra, as a model and hairstylist (yes, this queen does her own hair and hair for others!), has elevated the essence of creativity and freedom through her hairstyles, and we pay homage to her remarkable work.

Here are seven times Kayra has not only inspired us but educated us to know that her art is much more than just a hairstyle; it’s a love letter to the Black girl magic inside all of us to embrace the art and beauty that is us.

1.Perfect Texture

“Our texture is perfect, no matter what it does.”

Loving this moment from an interview with How She Did It, where Theodore shared how she achieves these gravity-defying hairstyles.

2.Bantu Bae

When they ask, "How do you sleep with your hair like that?" We say effortlessly with the flyest bonnet you’ve ever seen.

3.Divine Crown

This indescribable look filled with confidence and self-expression is a reminder that our art truly can help us express our innermost thoughts.

4.Good Things Come in Threes

Everything about this trifecta hair moment with Kayra adorned in braids and banded hair is absolute perfection!

5.Afrocentric Updo

This editorial updo hairstyle moment is what we need to see! Our tresses are just as worthy of our special moments as a blowout is.

6.Stay Fro

The chicest fro that ever was. Put this photo up in the MOMA because our girl is killing it.

7.Creative Queen

This clip of seeing it all come together is truly what Black girl magic is made of. Creativity at its finest!

8.Iconic Cornrows

These killer cornrows are the show-stopper that you need. Confidence and style all wrapped up in one!
