Afro Hairstyle coming back?

According to Wikipedia Afro, sometimes shortened to 'fro and also known as a "natural", is a hairstyle worn naturally by people with lengthy kinky hair texture or specifically styled in such a fashion by individuals with naturally curly or straight hair. The hairstyle is created by combing the hair away from the scalp, allowing the hair to extend out from the head in a large, rounded shape, much like a halo, cloud or ball.

In persons with naturally curly or straight hair, the hairstyle is typically created with the help of creams, gels or other solidifying liquids to hold the hair in place. Particularly popular in the African-American community of the late 1960s, the hairstyle is often shaped and maintained with the assistance of a wide-toothed comb colloquially known as an afro pick.

The style was popular in the 80’s but then it began coming back but with different variations. Both men and women can rock the afro Hairstyle as it is simple to maintain and keep. All you need is your natural hairs and let it grow out. It is mostly common for Africans since their hair is frizzy and natural. Styling is just combing it out or you can put a band at the front to make it different. Would you wear an Afro hairstyle today?
