3 Times People Absolutely Rocked the Afro

Ah, yes, the afro. A hairstyle some people would prefer remain unspoken, not to mention out of sight. And yet, there is something undeniably and uniquely smooth (one can even say cool) about the iconic haircut. The thing is, and this is just our opinion, it’s not that the afro is a bad cut, it’s just that most people can’t handle it. It is way above the average person’s capabilities. And to prove our outlandish hypothesis, we decided to take a few of our favorite afro rockers. These are the people who are groovy enough to get this hairstyle down to a tee and leave innocent bystanders’ jaws dropped while they’re at it. So, without further ado, here are our favorite afro rockers!

So, if afro-rocking is an art form (and we have already established that it is, indeed, a form of art), then this young lady may just be its Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Maria de Los Remedios Cipriano de la Santissima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.

It was October. 2019 when Julia Dalia was spotted sporting something we had heard existed only in the realm of legend: the unspeakably rare elegant afro. This is an afro that isn’t just cool but also posh. It is sleek, stylish, sophisticated, and luxurious. Most people have trouble pulling off a regular afro, but Julia’s got the elegant afro in the bag, too.

This runway Le Grand Palais, Paris model is rocking something pretty rare, too. It’s the condensed afro, otherwise known as the short afro or the mini-afro. But who said all afros had to be huge pieces of hair? Definitely not this lady, who’s living by example, showing us why the short afro is a force to be reckoned with in the wacky world of hairstyles.
