Summer is usually the season where most gals think about their hairstyles the least. The heat, the humidity and the spontaneous rain are all ingredients to the “I really don’t want to deal with my hair today” recipe. But there is a style that can last all summer long. And that is: natural hair. What is natural hair? Natural hair is when a person’s hair has not been altered by flat irons or chemicals (through keratin, relaxation or straightening). Let’s face it—the Afro is back and it’s here to stay. Can we also talk about how natural hair is finally being more and more embraced in the fashion industry? Exhibit A. Afros display so much unique character about a person. Let’s not forget about other natural hair styles that are trending: dreadlocks, twists, Senegalese twists, etc. In my opinion, hair identifies one’s personality. And this Fashionista proved my point.
This Fashionista’s Afro was the first thing I noticed about her. She strutted around FIT with confidence as she made a bold statement with her wicked hairdo. With her killer cat eye shades, neutral gloss and show-stopping earrings, this Fashionista was ready to take on the hot streets of New York City. Her look seemed effortless but also made a statement. Minimalistic makeup and daring accessories can go a long way when paired with an Afro, so hats off to this Fashionista.
