Nigerians That Rocked The Afro Look



Afro, sometimes shortened to ‘fro and also known as a “natural“, is a hairstyle worn naturally by people with lengthy kinky hair texture or specifically styled in a fashionable way by individuals with naturally curly hair. The hairstyle is created by combing the hair away from the scalp, allowing the hair to extend out from the head in a large, rounded shape, much like a cloud or ball.

It became particularly popular in the African-American community of the late 1960s, most black African-Americans styled their hair in an attempt to mimic the styles of the predominantly white society in which they lived. Afro look made a comeback in the 20th century and top celebrities are rocking this look, here are some of Nigerian celebrities that killed the afro look.
