Let’s have a peek through the Charcoal Ink looking glass of how Chanel Iman’s Afro hair is styled, and why these 7 looks are the best! [Email subscribers, you know the deal. Enable images for the post, cheers!]. All looks are from Prêt-à–Porter collections.
7. Bottega Veneta Autumn/Winter 2010
This look is beautiful because the side parting makes her hair look even glossier. I love how her hair looks here!
6. Gucci Spring/Summer 2009
I can imagine Florence Ballard loving this look. The curled ends of the hair is a particularly lovely touch. This is definitely cute, summer hair.
5. Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2010
Who does not love a fringe? Chanel wears the hell out of one. Makes me want to interpret my Afro into a chunky fringe.
4. Christian Lacroix Spring/Summer 2009
Now this is more like it! A wilder, fuller bodied-Afro punk fringe. I am becoming part of the Afro fringe the more I see this look on her.
3. Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2009
Bows are a great accessory for black hair, and I think this example highlights way. They mix cuteness with the glossy black hair we all have. Lovely.
2. Gucci Spring/Summer 2009
One reason why I love this look is because it highlights one key thing that can make an Afro hair look pop: deep colour. I almost feel like she took ebony paint and coated her strands in it. It’s sublime.
1. Christian Dior Autumn/Winter 2010
I can imagine this style in an archived issue of JET magazine. It looks royal and majestic. I love how curly and wild the hair is.
The thing about Chanel Iman is she is very versatile, and because of this her hair has some gorgeous looks to it, not because it is straight but it is an example of what makes black afro hair great: versatility. We can do anything with our hair and Chanel Iman proves this!
