Congolese Advertising

On most city streets in Congo you see painted billboards, shop signs, and wall murals that are painted in a very colorful and unique style. Maybe it is for lack of money for printed ads and signs, but it makes for such a unique look that draws your eyes to the glaring ads that if anything, make you smile and think “only in Congo”.

And something about hairdressers..they are on every corner, on every street! I asked and was told that Congolese women love to stay looking “fine”. And they most certainly do.
