The beautiful reality about the “natural hair movement” is the growing representation of curly-crowned sistas in prime-time TV series, in commercials, on billboards and in mainstream magazine advertisements.
I feel like these ladies stand out to me, simply because this used to be a rare occurrence, so when I do see a TV show or commercial with someone who is rocking their natural hair or afro weave, I have to take a moment to appreciate this representation.
Having studied the media and as a marketing professional, I have to give a “high-five” to the ad agencies and brands who have selected a lady with her natural hair to represent a segment of their diverse customer demographic.
Here are some ad campaigns, which made me stop, stare and smile 🙂
Comment below and let me know of any ads that have embraced diversity in a good way.
