These Striking African-Inspired Hair Looks Are Works Of Art

British hairstylist Lisa Farrell's Armour collection is a mind-blowingly gorgeous tribute to African culture.

There are very few things more satisfying in this world than a good hair day, amirite? While you can't always achieve the hairstyle of your dreams, you can certainly admire the incredible work of others, specifically that of British hairstylist Lisa Farrall. Her recent hair collection Armour celebrates African culture and pays tribute with symbolic hairstyles that are more works of art than salon styles.

This lady's got some serious hair styling skills when it comes to natural hair, and you really do have to see her incredible work to believe it.
