Inspired by the "Good Hair" episode of our very own KINKS podcast, our staff wanted to dive deeper into Hairstories and what they mean for others. This topic has been brought to light in recent years as people of color feel more empowered to embrace and talk about their natural hair.

We spoke to ten students of color at Ithaca College about the journeys and experiences they've had with their hair. Having curls and kinks isn't just a black and white story: We explore the multiplicities of hair, their roots and why it's so important.

View all ten stories in this extended cut.
