Korto Momolu

Liberian designer Korto Momolu may not have won the grand prize in this season's "Project Runway," but as far as her kinks go, she was a winner in our book.

The second-prize winner loves to do different styles with her hair.

"I love cornrows. I grew up doing those on my head for school and I also do it on my daughter’s hair," Momolu told blogger Ladybrille. "In Little Rock it is actually [illegal] to do African-style hair without a cosmetology [license], which means doing my child’s hair is considered a crime. . . It's 2008 but I'm fighting this issue. Most [of the] styles I do practice. . . illegal or not are kinky twist, micro braid and tree braids. These are mostly West African hairstyles."
