The Afro In Advertisements



As you can see I'm obsessed with the Afro and all that it symbolizes (freedom, individuality and self-acceptance) and when I see a woman wearing one regardless of whether it's a small 'fro' or a huge one I've got to have the photo.

While reading Italy's D-web magazine lately I came across this advertisement for the Liu-Jo brand which looks like model Oluchi Onweagba and another model wearing these huge Afro wigs. I'm sure it's Oluchi because her husband Luca Orlandi is the head designer for the Luca Luca brand in Italy. If it's not her I stand corrected.

A while back I was on the Nappturality website and a young girl described her afro like this:
I LOVE my hair because it looks so good with everything I wear! It fits my fashion style, its part of my fashion style! Paraphrased, but that's the jist of it. I love when the young sisters finally get it and fall in love with the gift of uniqueness that God gave to US! Yes the Afro is a fantastic beauty statement!

Yes I do believe that is Oluchi.
