Sleek, straightened afro hair is pretty much always in fashion and was seen at Marni, Diane von Furstenberg and Christian Dior (among others) last season.
It’s a look that’s easy to apply to afro hair, whether yours is relaxed or natural. It doesn’t necessarily have to be work parted down the middle (can anyone really pull that off?). Try adding a faux fringe, a slicked down side parting, a high swinging ponytail, or, as seen at Prada, some dip dye ends. If you want to be adventurous, consider buying a pack of already dipped weave wefts; bleach and afro hair doesn’t always end well.
