South African songstress and all round cool lady, Thandiswa Mazwai rocks beautiful natural hair. She is always seen in braids of some sort, with and without extensions. She has performed everywhere for everyone, sharing the beauty of African culture and music. I love the influences of “traditional” African hairstyles in her hair. You can see the influence of the Fulani culture, as well as Masaai in her hairstyles. This week’s hairspiration is quite deservedly, Thandiswa Mazwai.
Check out her awesome video. I would love to see her in concert someday.

The reason why these styles work for her is because they are who she really is. She doesn't have to try, it's natural.
