The Celebrity Afros We Are Swooning Over This Year
Afros for the win
The Afro is legendary and there’s no second-guessing that! Wear it in a number of ways and it will consistently stand out as a cutting-edge hairstyle that stands for freedom and a certain degree of rebellion. And how refreshing it is to see more and more celebrities rock their kinks and curls and embrace their heritage! Stars flaunted their ‘fro this year at the Golden Globes and we were digging every bit of it! Come have a look at the celebrity Afro hairstyles that we’re swooning over.

We’ll begin by telling you how obsessed we were with Viola Davis’ Afro mane at the Golden Globes. She made a powerful style statement with this wondrous volume, her natural coils projecting the supernatural grace and charm that she’s come to be known for. This look, we hear, came to be one of the most talked about highlights of the night. Turns out, you can rock this look too, hydrated and defined curls and volume intact, with the African Pride Shea Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in Hair Conditioner that works to give you both these benefits with as little as a dime-sized amount of product to work with. This celebrity’s afro hairstyle is here to stay!
2. Susan Kelechi-Watson

Susan Kelechi-Watson is next on our list. Quite the trendsetter with her versatile style, we know Susan for all the stylish experimenting she does with her hair. Cornrows to Top knots, the This Is Us actor never settles for anything ordinary. We fell in love with the ‘fro bob she flaunted that night. Effortless slay, we say!
To re-create this celebrity’s afro hairstyle, just spritz on a moisturising sheen spray for a dose of hydration and follow with a leave-in conditioner from root to tip to protect your hair as you style it. You’ll be sure to turn heads! Follow these tips to grow a healthy afro.
3. Yolonda Ross
No less than a goddess donning a Honey-Blonde glossy afro was Yolonda Ross at the same event. She put her look together with turquoise drop earrings and glossy burgundy lips. We vouch for the Darling Selina Weave extensions for that added oomph to your natural hair. All you need to rock that ‘fro even more! No one will ever know the difference as they’ll blend in perfectly with your natural hair.
