In Côte d’Ivoire, women go out of their way to be a “go” (a good-looking girl). A “go” is a woman who sways her shoulders! As she walks by, men turn their heads. At bars, she drinks champagne. Whether they come from Yopougon, Adjamé or Marcoury, they do not skimp on the means to make themselves beautiful. Pedicure, manicure, depigmentation products, and especially wigs. Hairstyles are the privilege of the “go-choc.” These women invest their savings in highlights, extensions, natural or synthetic hair. Several decades ago, Nigerian photographer Okhai Ojeikre photographed traditional Nigerian hairstyles. I was partially inspired by his work to try to understand the complexities of the hair of black women. I tried to demystify the direct African-American influence, the part owed to globalization, and the part relating to the African decoding of information seen on television. Almost all women interviewed about their hair tastes told me that they wished to look like Beyonce, Rihanna, and sometimes both at once. The result is unique. To quote Dieudonné, a hairdresser in a Marcoury salon, “Tell me who you are and I will tell you what hairstyle to wear.” All the hairstyles represent a fusion between African-American influence and African interpretations.
