Our Time - Hair and Self Image

Hair can shape our identities or it can challenge the very notion of how we define beauty. Filmmakers Shaienne Knox and Isabella Recca examine the role hair plays in their lives and communities. In Out of Our Heads, 16-year-old Knox explores the ways in which African American girls and women style their hair. In Bella, 17-year-old Isabella Recca tests her own beauty standards by shaving her head.
