An exquisite short film, The Hair Appointment (@slayedinbraids), focuses on “the beauty of African braiding and the community surrounding getting your hair braided in a salon versus doing your hair at home,” @helena.koudou, a 23-year-old Ivorian braider and model, explains. “The stylist-client bond is such a beautiful connection. We talk about everything in the chair.” The film also seeks to celebrate the natural hair community at a time when women still face discrimination for their hairstyles.

"This is the character you created for me, let me just hide behind it,” @taylorswift says now of the persona she has created. “I always used this metaphor when I was younger. I’d say that with every reinvention, I never wanted to tear down my house. ’Cause I built this house. This house being, metaphorically, my body of work, my songwriting, my music, my catalog, my library. I just wanted to redecorate. I think a lot of people, with Reputation, would have perceived that I had torn down the house. Actually, I just built a bunker around it.” Tap the link in our bio to read our full profile on our September cover star.

For nearly 400 years, these wayfinding traditions of the Polynesians were all but forgotten, lost to colonialism and technology and the blurry passage of time. That is until the 1970s, when, amid a cultural Hawaiian renaissance, a small group called the Polynesian Voyaging Society set out to connect the dots. Using drawings and museum replicas, they built Hōkūleʻa, the first deep-voyaging canoe to hit the water in centuries. Tap the link in our bio to learn more about their voyage.

Meet @shynatives, an upcoming lingerie brand being launched by two Northern Cheyenne sisters, Jordan and Madison Craig, who are currently based in Oakland, California. “This is a very modern thing we’re doing, and just because were Native American doesn’t mean that we have to stick to basket weaving or whatever it is that people expect Native Americans to do,” says Madison, who also claims that she is extra-careful whenever they do reference motifs or prints from their ancestors. “We don’t want to use anything that is too sacred or spiritual.” Tap the link in our bio to learn more.
