Vogue Italia recently wrote an article about the trend of Naturals of the runways during Fashion Week in Milan, questioning if Natural Hair was a trend that has a “shelf life”. Black models have long complained about the lack of education by hair stylist and make up artist. Tyra Banks has been natural since 2010 due to Alopecia, Naomi Campbell suffers from Alopecia as well and pictures have been published showing the condition of her hair. They seem to forget the gorgeous Alek Wek who has famously embraced her natural hair from the beginning of her career.
I find it quite sad that an industry that has few models that look like you & I need to us that being natural is okay and for the moment this is what their ideal of beauty is because they feel it’s a trend.
A very interesting read.
