7 Elaborate Hairstyles from the Afrik Fashion Show in The Ivory Coast

From June 11 through June 13, the 10th edition of the Afrik Fashion Show was held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast).  The show included fifteen stylists from across Africa to showcase their amazing “clothes, accessories, and hairstyles” in a sort of festival.  Some of the most notable of all the creations were the huge, majestic hairstyles by Ivorian hairdresser Dieudonné Senato.  Here are just a few of his masterpieces:
