About this project

“Every historic moment needs its recorder. The natural hair revolution now has the stunning photos of Glenford Nunez.” – The Huffington Post

Natural beauty is boundless, and now it is a source of endless artistic inspiration and wonder. 

“I realized there were no real quality portraits of women with natural hair. I was looking to do something different and though I could have something really special with this project.” Glenford Nunez, founder and photographer of the company TYP Photography Studios in Baltimore brings natural hair to the forefront of fashion and art photography with his creation of the Coiffure Project. Starting as simple cell phone portraits of his assistant who kept her hair natural and unmodified, he has expanded the project to depict something the world has not seen before, beautiful, natural hair on beautiful, natural people.

Nunez has photographed models of various backgrounds with sparks and essences that he feels drawn to and he captures their spirits in his dynamic portraits, putting emphasis on, not only their hair, but their light, attitude and unique styles. The real beauty of the Coiffure Project is that, according to Nunez, there is no deep intricate message, “I’m just doing me. I want people to look at good photography. The Coiffure Project is a portrait project first. The catch is it’s all about natural hair.” 

I am having my fist art exhibit at Silo Point in Baltimore, MD. This is very exciting and very overwhelming at the same time.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!  :.) 

The money raised will be used for purchasing a large format printer, paper, ink so that I can print 60" x 40" images for The Coiffure Project Exhibition. Money will also go towards catering a DJ for the event and fulfilling incentives. 

Opening night of The Coiffure Project Exhibition is free but invite only.

More images can be found at http://thecoiffureproject.com
Please help us turn this idea into a reality. 

Thank You.
