|"Safira" (Madala) of the television show Ghostwriter created by Liz Nealon and produced by the Children's Television Workshop and BBC One|
If you pay attention, you will find natural hair inspiration in many places. This weekend, I became inspired by watching a character named "Safira" on episodes of the '90s television show Ghostwriter on YouTube . The show Ghostwriter was about a group of teen friends from New York who solved neighborhood crimes by using the help of their ghost friend named Ghostwriter.
Safira (played by Madala) was a 12-year old Mozambican girl who attended Hurston Middle School with the teen friends for 2 weeks, because her father was working a special assignment for the United Nations. She wore African clothing and accessories, and her shoulder-length hair was always styled in either a twist out or braid out style. Some of Safira's styles included a ponytail with a tribal print headband or the top half of her hair gathered back into a clip. It's funny because I was 8-years old at the time the show originally aired in 1993, but I did not think much of her hair. But now, I get it! LOL. I plan to try some of Safira's styles soon.
