Joy Matashi

Hair is a vital part of identity. Joy Matashi, the architect, designer and self-described "braider/hair child," has turned what started out as an experiment, into a career that has blossomed into something much bigger than she imagined. Through documenting the process of hair-braiding on her Tumblr and Instagram pages, Matashi has gotten the opportunity to collaborate with artists, photographers and magazines, by exploring the notion between hair and architecture.
