There is nothing more beautiful than a black woman who embraces her natural tresses. While this is a truth that we’ve always known, natural hair has rarely ever been considered front cover worthy. Black women have been forced to confine to Euro-centric beauty standards for decades in the fashion industry. But in recent years, black women have reclaimed their own standard of beauty and the industry has taken notice. Natural hair beauties like Lupita Nyong’o, known for her signature T.W.A. and Chloe and Halle, known for their back-length dreadlocks, have contributed to shattering the conventions of American beauty by appearing on the cover of magazines representing what authentic black beauty truly looks like. Here is a recap of some of the best fashion editorial moments that celebrate natural black hair.
