Women of color have long been encouraged to adopt European beauty standards instead of embracing the versatility of their natural hair. And in an era when celebrity culture still plays a large role in the decisions we make regarding personal appearance, we’re grateful for the famous ladies who rock their coils and curls unapologetically.
