Natural Hair at NYFW

Natural Hair at NYFW?

Natural Hair, its a movement, trend, lifestyle or whatever you want to call it. Even though a lot of black everyday women and celebrities are embracing their natural hair, it’s still a tad bit difficult to break into the mainstream. So how about the biggest event in fashion? NYFW? Will we see natural hair on the runway?

Last year, for the first time ever, Maria Borges brought her sexy TWA to the Victoria Secret Runway (and this the 1st time in 2015!) and made headlines around the world!

This year an army of natural haired beauties are getting in #formation and ripping the runways at NYFW! This is great news, long overdue but a step in the right direction. I find it quite surprising in 2016 that we still have to shout and scream over diversity in fashion and makeup. I don’t want companies or designers to pick models just because they are black (personally, I think a LOT of companies are guilty of this, anytime there is an ad for a campaign which features a black model or anyone of colour they always have 2 or 3 secs *side eye* cough Maybelline, L’Oréal etc, but that’s a whole other post. Check out this Buzzfeed article on Maybelline’s Dream Velvet Foundation did you guys also see the horrible comments on the MAC Instagram page when they posted a picture of a black model’s full lips? Read that article here ). Pick models because they are right for the job unless all these companies and designers think only white models are right for the job?

Anyway, I digress

Here are the beauties killing it at NYFW, if you know any of their names, please drop it in the comment section and I will update the post, pictures have designer names! xx

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
