HAIR: References for Black Hair

This one doesn’t really have an actual person reference point lol. It’s inspired by Usagi from Sailor Moon.

I will update this list. I encourage anyone who has made Natural Hairstyles for Black individuals to post them here as well.

You can also see creative edits of Black hair in the hashtag #giveusmoreafrotextureepisode on Instagram. I encourage people tag their edits there as well.
