Pride in their ethnic origins saw African-American musicians adopting traditional African hairstyles – hair was plaited into tight ‘cornrows’, grown and then twisted into dreadlocks or braided and ornamented, as seen here on Stevie Wonder. The bikini-clad white actress Bo Derek, star of the film 10, had her hair plaited in cornrows. The style has remained popular with young people looking for an eye-catching way to dress their hair.
