Period. And I definitely agree with

Definitely support! I honestly suspect the lack of options (both Black curly/kinky hair and non-Black curly hair) is the factor behind features being appropriated so often? Another problem is sometimes curls will look looser than the volume of the style created would otherwise suggest. Non-Black people see a hair that’s “close enough” to their curls and slap it on their avatar not realizing what they’re doing. (Not to ignore the fact some non-Black people just don’t care which is, yikes and a topic for another day) If we had more options I believe it’d be minimized.

You know what… I don’t know :confused:
Obviously, other than the huge amount of creators who just don’t care whether their POC actually looks like a POC or not, I feel like part of the blame is on the art release itself.

Like, I remember some time ago we got a nice “curly hair update”. I was so hyped for that until I found out half of the “curly” hair was just wavy.

I mean, this is some of the "curls" we have

It says “curls” or “curly” but they hardly look like it. I can perhaps excuse the Long Thick Curls although it looks more like a curling iron was used instead.

I feel like a lot of people just see “curl” and think it’s good representation for curly people or even worse a POC.

Oof anyway, in all this, I truly absolutely hope to see more variety in the future :pray:t2:

Yeah, we need more black hairstyles for LL…

I always find that it is EXTREMELY limited.

God Bless.

Support!

Hopefully, they add more black hairstyles.

I have wavy hair up until my ends, then my hair gets very curly. I know it’s a very weird hair texture, and I’m not mad that Episode doesn’t have it, but there really aren’t that many options for just curly hair. I def want to see more curly updos, bc at the moment we have close to none.

COMPLETE SUPPORT!!!
Even though they have started to include more Melanated hairstyles… we still need more.I have Sisterlocks, and they absolutely do not have my hairstyle at all!!! It’s quite sad and frustrating that I get so excited when they introduce 1 or 2 Curly girl hairstyles, when the less melanated have oodles of options… but we get so happy when we get the little that we do receive!!!

I saw Blood and Water on Netflix recently and I was enchanted by all the different ways Puleng tied her braids. I would love to reference some of them in a character. I tried to find screenshots to illustrate what I meant, but Google is sadly failing me.
