With the small number of black models there are in the fashion industry, there are even a smaller amount that rock their natural hair.
Have you ever wondered why many of the brown models in the industry opt for a TWA (teeny weeny afro) or just rock a low fade? A lot of them look amazing with the style regardless, however it’s usually because they don’t want have to suffer through the relaxers, dyes, and stress of constant hair manipulation that designers put models through.
