It's no secret that when it comes to beauty, the world still takes an unfortunately Eurocentric view of things. Natural hairstyles worn by women of color are still devalued, misunderstood, and even outright banned in some schools and workplaces.

London-based photography student Dazhane Leah aims to change all that with her amazing project, "Afro Bloomin." It features gorgeous flowers in even more gorgeous natural hair.

"I've read, seen for myself and been told by family and friends about the negative experiences they've had when wearing their natural hair," Leah tells Mashable. "An afro is a statement and the hairstyle itself represents and holds so much history and passion and represents so much. As a whole, natural hair, especially when worn in an afro or dreadlocks has been and still is looked down upon."

This project was originally inspired by Leah's social media followers, and their definitions of black power.

She paired flowers with afros because "they are binary opposites, you wouldn't think to put the two together because they both come with different stereotypes."

"The point of the project wasn’t to discriminate against other races but to to be unapologetic and celebrate black lives through everything that makes us who we are," said Leah.

"Society tells us that our natural, God-given kinks and curls is not 'good hair,'" Dazhane said. "Natural hair, no matter what way a person decides to wear it should equally fit societies standards of 'Good hair'."
