African Women invented These Trends & You Probably Ignore it

African Queen of Egypt Cleopatra wearing makeup and signature red lipstick We probably live one of the most special eras in World History. Today, there are more inventions during a single day than during a decade, 20 years ago. And these innovations spread at a speed never seen before. People all over the globe share the same practices instantly and this, even when they originally have completely opposite backgrounds. There are almost no cultural boundaries anymore. And this happens so quickly that most of the times we ignore the origins of these trends and inventions. And this combined to cultural appropriation leads to a global confusion when people wonder who were the original inventors. In this article, you will see that some of the hottest trends that are today associated with non-African women all over the globe have actually been launched by African women or men.

Many people tend to associate it with Asian women, especially because many nail shops belong to people from that community. But the truth is that it probably started with African women. The nobility and royal women of Kemet already practiced it many thousand years ago. But contrary to what can be seen today, their style was more natural.
