When model Blac Chyna refers to her “best friend”, it’s not a gal pal she’s talking about but her wig. This editorial, produced in collaboration with Man Wig, Seylon and Amy Twist pays tribute to the significance of the wig in Black subculture. While the wig can be on the one hand seen as a kind of armour against the world, particularly given the discrimination faced by Black people regarding their hair, it also offers opportunities for playful subversion. That comes through in Jessica’s portraits, rejoicing in self expression and nonconformity by younger generations.
