Who doesn’t love a big, beautiful, round afro?! Popularized in the late ’60s, the afro was one of the main symbols of black pride during the African-American Civil Rights Movement. During the movement, the afro was considered a very radical hairstyle as many blacks relaxed their hair to maintain a straight hair look. Nowadays we have the “natural hair movement” and all though there are many other styles the afro hairstyle is definitely still a great style to rock. I personally feel that it is a great hairstyle for the summer weather.

Here are a couple of inspirational pictures for those of you wanting to rock a big round cloud of hair on your head.
