The topic of Hair in North America can be such an explosive subject especially when it comes on to black women's hair, I can't believe they just passed new laws like this!  So I thought you would find the work of Joanne Petit-Frére to be quite fitting.  

TRESSÉ AGOCHE is a design project founded & directed by Joanne Petit-Frére. Using braided hair to honor past, present & future spaces, Joanne creates sculptural garments to explore ornamental value, cultural identity, displacement, existentialism & femininity.
