Introducing the "Obama"

For the last two months I have been quite confused as I see signs for the "Obama" on neighborhood salons.

What is "the Obama" I wondered to myself...

So yesterday I finally found out. Auntie Mary asked Auntie Blessing to take out her weave and so of course I had to be there to assist :)

In the course of its removal she told us that when she went to Kenya she was going to go and get an Obama.

Well I couldn't pass up the opportunity to finally figure it out so I asked..."What exactly is an Obama??"

Apparently it is a style of plating (braiding) for women's hair.

Who knew!

When Auntie Mary gets back I will post a picture :)
