If you've seen any of the previous installments of Cut Video's Evolution of Beauty series, you know how utterly fascinating they are. Not only do you get to learn about a different culture's style, but you also see it evolve over the course of a century in under two minutes. Next up on our virtual journey is an exploration of beauty's evolution in Kenya. Model Keesee is transformed for each decade, and we watch as she begins barefaced in the 1910s, then speeds through to the 2000s, where she flaunts purple eye shadow.
What's most interesting about this video is the similarity between the first and last looks. It seems that history does actually come full circle, as Keesee has the same short, natural hairstyle in both. And despite the fact that the countries are only 3,000 miles apart (about the same distance between New York and San Francisco), Nigerian hair trends differed drastically from those in Kenya. See for yourself!
