Models at Newyork Fashion Week

It’s official there is now a full shift in hairstyles for African women, from wearing straight bone hair to adorning a crown of curls. As seen on numerous runway shows recently at the 2015 New York Fashion Week, models like Lineisy Montero, Alek Wek, Anais Mali, Iman Hamman and more all walked the runway with natural hair and hey! there was not a fuss about it, even the men were not left out.

For decades African women have spent a lot of money trying to narrow caucasian hair styles, but thank goodness for evolving fashion trends African women can now own their locks back and be proud of it. So it’s up to you to decide how you wear your crown?

Checkout some of the looks at NYFW from runway and street style, perhaps you as an African woman can garner more confidence and say no to the weaves and chemicals.
